My dash lights want come on and my left brack light want come on and my right blinker want come on.


1st off the right blinker,does it blink fast or not at all if it blinks fast, check the bulbs if it is not blinking and the dash light also don't work the multifunction switch could be bad(turnsignal,light switch) if your other break light is working start by checking the bulbs take the verified good one and try it in the other side if the bulbs are good check the fuses under dash and under hood carefully

Honda civic 1988 wont start stopped just after starting has power to all non-ignition circuits - horn / headlights / brakes / etc but no dash lights / no solenoid ignition click starter and solenoid 10 amp...


I'd check the distributor for spark, those year Honda's had alot of problems with the distributors. Also, I would check the multi-relay, under the dash, on the driver side, on the far left of the dash.

1990 crx base model honda civic want start


I would suggest an ignition module. If it is a rough idle at startup I would check the throttle position sensor. You can check that by starting the car and unplugging the TPS. If the car runs differently then chances are it is working fine.
