Question about 1999 Honda Civic
After about an 8 month hiatus of driving this Civic, I needed to start using it again. Kept fluids up, only problem was a drained battery after the cold weather and infrequent starting (maybe started once a month). After battery was tested and trickled charged at the dealership, it tested perfect and car started right up. While sitting at work on break, the car stalled. Roughly 20-30 degrees outside and hadnt been running for more than 10 minutes. Checked all the basics and found the main relay seemed bad. Just replaced with new and it didnt fix my problem. Fuel pump is priming and no CELs. Checked spark and have no spark in any cylinder (used standard spark tester). Fuses have been checked as well. Thinking distributor but not sure where to start testing. Between the rotor/igniter/and coil. Not sure how to test either. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for any help guys.
Run the fault codes and check for cam./crank position sensor check that the camshaft is turning ( broken timing belt) Have the CPU reset using a coder reader as the security program may be corrupted from the dead battery

either have a shop scan it for trouble codes or buy a scanner your self at local parts store have OBDII scanner and find out for your self it could be a number of things.

if your not getting spark then your coil is the mostlikely cause it's obviously not a timing issue since you stated that the rotor is spinning. if the spark plugs are bad then replace them too . to be sure that your getting spark to all cylinders test each of the spark plugs after replacing the coil. just to besure it's not starving for fuel as well spray a little ether in the breather if it fires off right away that means the even though your fuel pump works it may not have a high enough pressure. let me know the results

YOUR CAR HAS TRANSISTORIZED ELECTRONIC IGNITION SYSTEM.BECAREFUL IT HAS HIGHER VOLTAGE THAN CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS.PROBLEM IS IN IGNITION SYSTEM FIRST CHECK DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR. MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT WORN OUT. IF ALL IS GOOD CHECK THE IGNITION FUSE AND.CHECK TO SEE IGNITION COIL AND IGNITION MODULE GETTING BATTERY POWER.IF BOTH GETTING POWER.REMOVE IGNITION COIL.CHECK ITS RESISTANCE WITH A VOLT OHM METER.TO MAKE SURE ITS NOT OPEN.IF COIL IS GOOD PROBLEM IS THE ICM OR IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.ANOTHER THING CHANGE PLUGS + WIRES IF IT BEEN A WHILE.
