Hey everyone,
I have a 1992 Honda Accord DX with 120,000 miles and I have been having issues with the rear defogger.

I have checked all the fuses, replaced the defroster relay, replaced the switch, the bulbs in the switch, and replaced the ICU 3 TIMES!

The reason I have replaced it 3 times is because when I put a new one in the intermittent wipers turn on, and then the defrost doesn’t work.

The other interesting thing is when I take it back out the icu smells like burnt electronics, so I’m thinking something is overloading the ICU but I just don’t know what that could be!

I also took it to a shop and they said that there was power coming out of the fuse box but I don’t know why it isn’t working...

If there are any older Honda experts out there that could throw me a bone I would be really grateful.

Thanks!&

see if this helps. It could be the defogger itself causing the overload. If you unplug it and have power to it and nothing
starts to cook until you plug it back in. Then you might have a bad defrost.

Hey college man, could you take a look at my other thread and see if you have any suggestions on some cold start issues I’ve been having with this car as well?
