Default UPDATE: '95 Civic with intermittent A/C failure

Hi all,
A while back, I asked for advice about a pesky intermittent A/C problem
I was having with my '95 Civic (80,000 miles on it). Namely, the A/C
just doesn't work much of the time; occasionally it favors me with some
cold air, but most of the time it doesn't. My regular mechanic failed
to fix it.

Folks here suggested I take the car to a Honda dealership. Which I did.
Last Thursday. Today, they told me they think they finally figured it
out--a bad Heater Control Unit in the dash. Evidently it's badly
grounded and is overheating or something.

I never heard of this before. What does this Heater Control Unit do? Is
that the entire climate control assembly on the dash or something?
Anyone else experience a similar problem?

www.honda-tech.com has several reports of this being
replaced/needed for Hondas around 1995, at least one with
photos. Do a search of the archives there using the words
"heater control unit." Appears to be, like you say, the
entire climate control assembly on the dash. Ebay shows
photos of same. I expect it's something very specific within
the unit that failed, but replacement of the entire assembly
may be worthwhile, given the labor to get the thing out and
completely diagnosed.
