Question about 1995 Honda Civic
After it rains or car sits for a few days car cranks but won't start. battery is new and alternator and fuses are fine
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.

Well the battery and alternator would not have anything to do with the engine starting.
You would need to check the ignition system to see if you are getting the correct spark at the plugs when the engine fails to start.

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

When you tested the battery did you have it load tested? It is possible the battery is good but is losing power overnight due to an open circuit. This will give you the slow crank in the mornings. Once the vehicle has been running and charged the battery back up it works fine the rest of the day. Car batteries provide you with two needed items at start up, Amperage and Voltage. It is possible to have 12 or 13 volts and the battery not be able to crank the motor over because it can't generate the Amperage needed. Your problem is not the Starter Relay, as someone else mentioned if that goes out it will not crank at all. If teh battery has an overnight drain or weak cell it will ahve problems generating the Amperage required and cause your problem. Unfortunately the only way to really identify this will be to let the vehicle sit overnight and then remove the battery and take it to auto zone and have it load tested.
