    image.jpg Hi guys,

    I've been trying to find information on the attached IC but am hitting nothing but dead ends in my searching... I was hoping one of you may recognize the manufacturer logo or that the numbers may make some sense to you. I've looked through a list of logos and googled the numbers but have not had any luck. Admittedly I don't know too much about IC's so may not be trying the right searches.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    What device did this board (and chip) come from?

    It is from a momentary push button switch with a built in 15 minute timer for heated mirrors.

    Like side mirrors on a car (or exactly side mirrors on a car)?

    Yep heated side mirrors on a car, toyota highlander to be exact. The timer function has stopped working. I've tested all resistors, diodes and leads and they checked out okay so I believe the problem to be in this IC. I'm perfectly comfortable soldering in a replacement but can't seem to find any information on it to track down a suitable replacement chip.

    Since it's an 8 pin dip and used for some timer function, trace the circuitry around the chip and make a schematic. Might be a 555 timer...

    This is a good point and if nobody can identify the IC or manufacturer logo then I'll probably draw up a schematic.

    Also regarding the terms posted by Scott I did PM him to explain I am simply looking to replace a faulty IC and not modify or enhance anything in the circuit. However if that is determined to be coming too close to breaking the rules and the thread gets locked I can check on a different forum.

    That being said if anyone is able to identify the pictured chip then I would greatly appreciate the help.

    Other moderator thought this should be close, so I will close it.
