Question about 1999 Honda Civic
Just got my car going after about 8 months of non use. Only problem at first was battery was drained. Took to the dealership and after a long trickle charge it tested perfect. While sitting at work the other day my car stalled while idling (was on break at the time). Temperature outside was around 20-30 degrees and hadnt been in the car for more than 10 minutes or so. After stall she wouldn't start. Cranks at regular speed but will not turn over. Have replaced the Main Relay (RZ-0158) to no avail. Fuel pump is priming but have no spark in any cylinder using a standard spark tester. Thinking at this point it is a distributor problem but dont have the cash for a tow/mechanic to look at and would prefer fixing myself. Dont want to replace another part that doesnt need to be done (old relay was in rough shape though). First time this problem has occurred. No problems before the long sit. Thanks in advance for any help!!

No spark can be from crank / cam position sensors failure , broken wires
check to see that the timing belt/chain has not broken
have the fault codes read

From sitting so long corosion does build up on all connections of the electrical system. Corrosion will lead to shorts in the system stopping the battery current to flow. Inspect and clean any discolored nuts and bolts to the battery, alternator, and wire connectors to the fuse block. Do this of course with the negative battery cable disconnected
