yes, my wiring was fine. The actual wiper switch broke internally, swapped it out and all good.

This seems like a lot of work you could just swap a 96-00 icu for the 92-95 and have intermittent wiper and headlight on

This is true, however I created this DIY before anyone knew you could swap in the 6G Civic one. FYI you can also swap in a 98-01 CR-V one to add the above functions plus intermittent *rear* wiper functionality, with some add'l wiring.

However, I still like the sound of the Teg chime over anything else.

We all love you Mr. deschlong, I joined this forum just because of you and I am happy as we have got such a talented person like you, who work painstakingly to create and write such informative DIYs.

It is worth mentioning here that the 92-95 JDM civic comes factory equipped (may be not all the variants) with the:
1. lights on beep (continuous beep, teeeeeee....)
2. seat belt reminder (recurring beep for around 10 seconds, tee tee tee)
3. key on reminder (recurring beep, tee tee tee)

Let me add further that I have changed the complete wiring harness of my car with the JDM and have also changed the interlock unit with the ek civic (remember the eg civic interlock unit is exactly same like the ek but it lacks the chime)
The 96-00 JDM civic has got a chime inside the interlock unit, when the reverse gear is engaged it sounds like kring ting, kring ting.....

Though my car is manual and the interlock unit may not of much use but I have wired the reverse gear switch with the interlock unit and it is working flawlessly and I can hear the unique dual tone beeper i.e., kring tring .......

I cut the wire for the seat belt chime on the back of the ICU, wire the ICU side to a relay to switch polarity, then tap into the parking light option output on the under dash fuse box. Kill two birds with one stone. Takes ten minutes and doesn't cost anything if you have auto relays lying around everywhere like I do.

I appreciate the OP's method and his other DIY's, however.

Used this writeup today and it worked great. Managed to find ALL the individual pieces on e-bay for about $32 shipped total.

BTW: BLU/WHT wires can be identified by their paint dots.
- BLU/WHT-2 has silver dots of paint on it
- BLU/WHT-1 has brown dots

Also, you can sometimes find the integra chime at a better price on ebay by looking for "integra relay". Most ebay wreckers don't even know what this part is so they label it incorrectly.

Iíve been reading this one single topic for a while and I have a 99 Civic LX and Iíve been trying to figure out how to translate this over to my car, as I want the classic Japanese plink plonk noise in my car, do you have any suggestions or tips? I have some pics I can show you of the progress Iíve mde but I havenít gotten under the car and started cutting stuff up just because I really wanna make sure itís gonna work before I go in and do it.

You would retrofit the Integra ICU + chime for your current ICU. This will give the plink plonk for headlight on sound.

What is the CDM function?

I mention this in the original post:

  • Grab the ICU from behind the fuse box (note that the fuse box is the same as our Civic's). See Figures 1 and 2. Get the pigtail for the ICU, too (very important!). (FYI: The ICU is the box that's attached to the back of the fuse box - it's a little bigger than the size of a deck of cards.)
    • Part numbers are DIFFERENT in Canada vs. United States. USDM is 38600-ST7-A01, CDM is 38600-ST7-C01. The way the wiper/washers work is different, so be sure to get one from the vehicle's native country...UNLESS, you are in the US and want to VASTLY IMPROVE the way your Civic wipers function, by adding a combined wiper/washer function .... get one from a Canadian car. This additional feature requires the addition of tapping into ONE wire -- see tlarimer's post later in this thread for more info.

Did this retrofit today on my Dad's '92 Civic Si, partly to deal with this problem with slow INT wiper setting, partly to finally add a lights-on chime:

This will be my first winter with the Integra ICU retrofit, so we'll see if it's any different. My issue was never as bad as his (mine only happened in very cold conditions ... -20C or lower).
Can't believe it's been 8 years since we first found a solution to this problem and I didn't do this ICU swap for him until now!

Note that the '97 Integra that I removed the parts from was already partially gutted, including the dash harness. But they kindly left the fuse box and chime littered around and in neighbouring cars. But, alas no ICU connector + pigtail. Thankfully I have done research beforehand and knew that a pigtail for the Integra ICU could be removed from a 98-01 CRV (NOT '97), which were plentiful in the yard. Keep this info in mind if you're hittin' the yard, DIYers!

Do they not use road salt in your area? An EH that old around here is a rarity. Those things have nearly disappeared in the last 5 years.

The thing is a fkn gem. Dad's the second owner, only 160K Kms/100K mi, garage kept, not winter driven, paint gleems like new. Dad regularly has people approach him enquiring about it, either to buy or just in awe. Upgrades are mainly ones we've done together, so it's got power windows and locks, rear speakers, rear intermittent wiper, low fuel light, that type of thing. OEM ones. Found him nice OEM wheels. Front OEM lip. NZDM rear mudflaps. **** like that. I'll see about a pic.
