Default 1992 Honda Civic Windwshield Wiper Issues

My daughter has a 1992 Honda Civic EX that she bought a few weeks ago used. It has 170k on it. The windshield wipers didn't work, so we I replaced the fuse first, then the wiper switch on the column. The switch that I bought was from Ebay, from a seller I've purchased parts from in the past with no problems. He said it was test and working when removed.

On off the wipers move as if in Low
On intermittent the wipers move as if in Low
On Low the wipers move as if in Low
On High the wipers move as if in High.

She was just going to live the the wipers being own temporarily until I could get it fixed, but tonight she noticed her instrument cluster lights flickering as well

Here is my question, If the wipers work as described above, would that mean that the motor is fine, or is there a possibility that the motor is still bad (someone posted that the relay is part of the motor)?

Also, could it be the ICU? At some points the wipers don't come on and you can hear a "whine" sound under the dash. Is there a wiper relay under the dash that is separate from the ICU?

I have a couple of weeks to get this fixed, but I wanted to get some advice from the experts.

Thanks for any help,
