I was driving my 1983 honda civic 1.5 when it started to die. now when i turn the key on i dont get dash board lights or any respons from the motor. the radio and clock still work. head light dont work and the turn signals dont ether. the battery is fine and it has a new starter in it but i still cant figer out whats rong with it.
SOURCE: 1983 honda civic wont start now
hi have you checked the leads from battery to starter are secure ? also important that the negative earth lead from battery to the engine is also secure and in good condition on the starter you should have main cable from battery and a thinner cable both connected to solenoid on one terminal ? then a thin wire to a small push on terminal? this wire is the key start wire which energises the slenoid/starter

you blew the fuse on the positive battery wire. its in a small black box that the positive wire leads to. did you accidentally hook up the battery the wrong way? i did that on my 83 civic,cause the color coded wires were the opposite. i went to O'reillys and they didnt have the same fuse, but i rigged a simillar bus fuse with the same amperage to work, now it works fine. hope this helped.
