Question about 1996 Honda Civic
1. It's not the voltage regulator, that only controls the batter getting charged and at what rate.
2. It's probably not the ELD, if it was, you could go autozone (does this for free) or another friendly parts store and have them pull the OBD II diagnostic codes ... if the ELD is bad, it would probably be throwing code(s).
3. It may likely be the ignition switch ( electrical contacts probably or maybe mechanical part)
Honda had some problems with ignition switches going bad prematurely in the 96-00 timeframe. Go to the official Honda Owner Link website https://www.ahm-ownerlink.com/ and join there and plug in your VIN. There was a recall for ignition switches, they will let you know if yours is one. It's not out of the question that they would still repair for free(that's why you got a Honda in the first place!).
