Try replacing the battery

    Could be the neutral safety switch located under the boot of the shifter. Do you have a second key, try using it to see if it makes a difference. Does the car turn over, Are all the electronics dead, this would be the battery, have you checked the fuel, how long has it been setting.

My 98 civic wount start I put some gas treatment in and drove it around parked it and the nextday went to start it and it wount start

Might be a fuel pump. The gas treatment shouldn't have anything to do with it. Was it running bad before you put the gas treatment in it? Take off the gas cap and put your ear next to the opening and see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on and off. You will need someone to urn the key to the on position while you listen. Don't try and start it, just turn the key where it would normally be when it is running. If you can't hear the fuel pump kick on and off then that is probably your problem.

My honda civic 19954. when it rain car wount start for the day or so. after the hurricane and all the rain car wount start at all. engin roll but no go.

Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:--
