Question about 1996 Honda Civic
Even with the reprogrammed key's the engine would crank, it might not start but it would crank over so that leave's only one thing, your used ignition switch is bad.

I would check your firing order, and all the stuff with the distributor,
no loose connections and stuff, check the condition of all your plugs,
make sure they are gapped correctly, check everything, maybe your
injectors are clogged or broken? (unlikely but still check it out) then
at last check for compression. All you need is fuel, spark and
compression to fire. Check all cylinders to make sure they are ok on
Get your tools (for removing a spark plug) ready. Try to start the engine, pumping the accelerator a little while you crank. Take a spark plug out. Is the spark plug wet with gas (smell fuel)? If so, you are getting fuel. Hook the spark plug you just took out up to the coil, lay it on the engine where it will be grounded to the metal. Get someone to crank the engine, and check for spark at the end of the plug. If there is a good spark, that eliminates another problem (don't crank the engine, or let it run too long with the plug out). If you have spark, and fuel, either the timing is way off (broken, slipped timing belt/chain), or you have no compression (internal engine).
Do you have a "Check Engine" light, or any other warning light on? Recently you make any work there or disconnected the battery? Are you thniking in Theft, Immobilizer or Passlock security alarm? Is this occurrs and the keys isn't work, its need to re-programmed, for this need to visit your Honda dealer.
Keep us updated.

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.
