It may be the main relay. It should be mounted on the driverside kick panel, under the console attached the the side forwall and looks like this;

    my moms 92 civic dx did the EXACT same thing! the main relay (same thing he said) was the culprit! It seems to be a common thing for these cars!
    All I did was pull it apart and resolder all the connections, works perfect now!
    Good luck

    Re-solder is an option if you have the time. But the relays that are purchased today have over come this issue, it seems to be related to the original factory part. Glad to hear you made out ok with this issue.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

No fire


first thing i would check would be your spark control module.Located in the distributer under the rotor.take it down to your local autoparts store for testing.have them test it three times in a row to get it to operating temp.if it passes then check your coil with a multimeter.
