Default 91 integra rear defog inop

From time to time over the last few years the read defog did not turn on
when I flipped the dash switch.

Now it will not turn on at all.

The only thing that has also gone wrong in the same time frame is the
intermittent setting of the wipers no longer works so I have 2 positions for
slow and 1 for fast(er).

Are these two things related? I can live without the intermittent wipers,
but I want to fix the rear defog, any hints?

Thanks

--Steve

Yep,

It's a little module that hides behind the interior fuse box called the
Integrated Control Unit (ICU). Expect to hear random beeping noises in the
future as well.

Oh, and I surmounted the defroster problem by mounting a normal automotive
switch to jump the connection. The only thing the ICU does is automatically
shut off the defroster after twenty minutes of operation.

How can one distinguish between a bum ICM, and a duff defroster relay?

What kind of $$ is the ICM?

Thanks.

I can't find one anywhere on the web, does it have another name?

Thanks.

ICU is about 12cm x 10cm x 2cm. Relay is about 2.5cm x 2.5cm x 4cm.
ICU is enclosed in a plastic box. Relay most likley has a steel cover and a
plastic base (Relay $5, ICU is $45 at the junker yard)

Thanks, but I was looking for a diagnostic to distinguish between the
failure of one or the other, and:

It's not my problem anymore.
