I didn't know that there was a 2013 CRV built without intermittent wipers nor do I see that reflected in the service manuals. If yours is not equipped with intermittent wipers and you wanted to change it there would be more involved than just changing a switch. The wipers are controlled by the Drivers Multiplex Integrated Control Unit (MICU). That control unit would have to be one that is configured for intermittent wipers.
I see the difference now it is and variable dwell timer circuit-vs-regular intermittent wipe. I would verify 1st that the optional blue wire is located at pin 10 of the wiper switch connector as shown on the wiring diagram I included, f so , great. The MICU is an integrated part of the dash fuse box. I Included some information on removal and installation of the dash fuse box. The MICU is also a part of the immobilizer system (if equipped), after replacing it you would have to get the keys reprogrammed. A mobile lock smith should be able to do that for you.
I just gave you a bunch of info. Hope it tells you what you wanted to know.
ok, good luck
As long as the wire is there then I think it will be possible to connect a different switch and install a different MICU and make it work. You might get lucky and not have to change the MICU so try the switch first and see what happens.
