    I suggest you buy a factory service manual to do this kind of electrical repair, don't you agree?

    Wipers will go from a fast speed to a slower speed & finally will not work at all. wiper motor was replaced 9/2012 & switch was replaced 3/2013

You can just search for Honda Civik Factory Service Manual online. Also I had a simliar issue with my 87 rx7 and I took apart the wiper motor and cleaned up all kinds of muck inside. Put it back together and it works fine now.

You should probably have your ignition switch changed. I replaced the main relay and the fuel pump, then ignition switch. Then had to have my transmission rebuilt.

Good day to you, based on my experience with my 1997 Honda Civic you may want to check the electrical terminals for both the doors and the wiper motor. I found that over time the copper electrical connections will "corrode" and the seating of the terminals need cleaning. You can purchase a commercial contact cleaner or just use some vinegar and a paint brush. Ensure that the battery is disconnected when using solvents on electrical connectors.
