I had the same problem with my Daughters 91 civic 4dr..It turned out to be the ignition switch.. Replaced the electronic portion (kept the original Key) and it fixed the problem.

2005 honda civic replaced starter .it started right up for a couple of days now just cranks and won't start?


Tapping the starter is just a test,then you replace it as you did

So the starter issue is resolved

No check to see if you have fuel pressure at the motor
when you cycle the key

Also check for spark or injector pulse when cranking

If you have a relay for starter switch it with a similar one

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.
