check the light switch on the stalk. Also check the relay it will be under the bonnet . Voltage should be supplied t0 the relay when light switch turned on and then relay should click on and voltage 12 v should be switched to the headlight from the switched relay contacts. Suspect worn light switch . You could run a wire from 12v to contact on relay that powers the coil on the relay to prove if relay works and switch is cause of your problem
Why is it leaking oil from oil filter after i did oil change??
Wrong filter, damaged filter or filter not tight enough.
Did you get an oil light on dash (2 quarts low).
The computer may have shut the engine down before engine failure if you are lucky (oil light). If you did not blow your engine (sieze) and you fix the filter problem put some 'lucas' oil in your engine to help with excessive friction caused by low oil level.
I hope this helps.

Disconnecting any sensor will cause a non working car to work suddenly.I would check two things. 1. The Transmission control module- vary rare issue. 2. the ignition control module. These break down a lot in Honda's. In the 96-98 model of the civic, the dash uses the tach built into the ignition control module. the 99-00 model doesn't use the ICM tach signal, but uses the same module. Test your ICM with a digital multi meter ($5 @ harbor frieght), before dropping $60- 140 on one.
