Question about 1997 Honda Civic
WENT THROUGH HUGE WATER PUDDLE WETTING AT LEAST THE SPARK PLUGS MAYBE MORE, TRIED DRYING THEM AND MADE IT DRIVABLE THEN LOST THE KEY AND USED A COPIED KEY TO ANOTHER HONDA WHICH MESSED UP THE IGNITION SWITCH. TOOK OUT THE BATTERY TO AVOID IT BEING STOLEN AND PUT IT BACK IN BACKWARDS CAUSING A BIG SPARK. NOW I NEED TO KNOW CAN I JUST CHANGE THE LOCK CYLINDER PART OF THE SWITCH? ALSO NOTICED A BUNCH OF FUSES BLOWN WHICH ARE MAJOR AND CAN ANY OF THIS CAUSE THE CAR NOT TO RUN AGAIN? CAN THIS BE FIXED EASILY? AND ON THE CHEAPER SIDE OR AM I LOOKING A BUNCH OF WORK AND MONEY? THE HORN AND BRAKE LIGHTS ARE THE ONLY THINGS WORKING NOW.
That is alot of bad luck! yes, you can change just the lock cylinder. hooking the battery up backwards may have caused a number of problems. you can try replacing all of the blown fuses to see how much damage there actually is.
