First you need to disconnect the battery, remove the bottom engine covers, than remove the power leads from the starter to gain access to the nuts or bolts (should be only two of them one on top one bottom). Take it out, put the new one in and reverse the process. Don't mix the wires!

Trying to find fusable link in 97 honda civic dx. Starter and the solenoid are good, but still no power, no turn over, just plain dead everywhere.

There are none. It uses maxi fuses, not fusible links. Here are the two fuses to check that supply power to the ignition switch: fuse 41, an 80 amp battery fuse, and fuse 42, a 40 amp IG1 fuse (ignition 1).

It's a 97 civic 4 door manual trans the car won't start by the key I can jump the starter an start it an all the fuses an relays are good what do I do??

ah ha,. the problem of too much weight on a key chain -- broke the ignition switch eh??
If not the ignition switch test the clutch pedal switch... you may get lucky there.,
Well,. alternatively, given the year of the vehicle, you could either modify the ignition switch with a push button, or replace the ignition switch..
Best regards

My 97 Honda Civic runs good and up until now, no problems, but when I turn on the key to start it, nothing happens. Have new battery, fully charged, lights on dash do not go off when I turn key to start. ...

Bypass the clutch switch. If the car starts then replace the switch.
If this will not work, then you need to troubleshoot the starter, from the fuse up to solenoid. Might be anything from a bad fuse, bad relay, bad solenoid, corroded starter copper contacts, or a bad starter. Hope this will help.

Civic 97 sohc vtec wont start

The need for the trans to be in park or neutral is a safety feature on all automatics called a detente. This prevents the vehicle from starting in gear and taking of out of control. As for the starting problem, if the battery is good and you even tried to jump it with another car the best place to start is at the battery terminals for corrosion.Remove the cables and with some sand paper, not to rough, clean the both the terminal and cable end to a shin before replacing.
If it still won't start than check all the connections on the starter motor. Do the same thing to all the connections that you did to the battery. After replacing the terminals on the battery and starter coat them with a terminal spray to protect them.
