SOURCE: doesn't start
To put it simply it's either spark, fuel or compression. If the timing belt is okay (not broken or timing marks don't line up) and you have spark, you need to make sure you have clean gas and not water (from condensation) or air being sprayed out the injector nozzles. Try using quick start spray or even pouring some gas down the trottle body and see if it starts. If it does then check the relays, pump and lines. I've seen pin hole leaks in lines that caused symptoms similar to vapour lock. Check the
Main EFI relay (it's under the dash near the brake pedal) they usually stop working when the car is parked in the hot sun. Sometimes leaving the doors open, or pushing the car into the shade so it can cool down, will get the car to start again. I would get a distributor and a Main EFI relay from a junkyard. Because it's too expensive just swapping in new parts, and it's always a good idea to keep a spare distributor around as they are known to go bad on old Integra's.

Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

Sounds as though you changed parts unrelated to the engine turning over. The ign module etc would be where you would check, if you had no spark.
Do you really know that the ignition switch is okey
Do you know that the neutral switch is adjusted correctly if that applies or is in fact working okey.
All relays may click,BUT are their contacts inside burn't,and not completing a circuit ,the the starter solenoid?
If you had a wiring diagram in the beginning,it sounds as though,you know what your doing and would be closer to solving the issuse

Testimonial: "Swapped out the main relay, still no change, the ignition switch is new, the ignition control module is new, thinking the ECU may be fried."
