when you turn the key to ON the check engine light pops on, then cuts off

during that time you should hear the fuel pump prime in the back (its a low humming noise)

test and see if you hear that noise.

if you dont hear it, look into replace the main relay.

check it and post back

Change your spark plugs and distributor it will start because if it sound like it is going to start but it dosnt then the pump isnt bad because that mean that fuel moved for the second u tried to start he car u cant lose by changing the wires and the distributor because it wont cost more than 90$ and the pump could be more so just try it if u didnt already fix ur problem

you are advising him to just throw parts at it instead of troubleshooting.

im sorry, but that is horrible advice. i told him to do a simple test, to eliminate one VERY common problem.

after he eliminates that, then we can get to whether he has spark or not, which should be tested, not throwing parts at it

no joke dude, Igniter, i had the exact same problem, only thing was i was actually on the road and my car Cut out completely. the sodering in the igniter is **** so it cracks under the heat of the engine, thus not being able to start your car. but id recommend main relay aswell, replaced both on my car and its been driving beautifully since then.

i really cant understand your posts

the main relay is under the drivers side of the dash, near the fuse box and hood pop lever

its a brown box with a gray bottom and a big gray plug with lots of wires

sounds like you got another bad relay

if you can smack it and the car starts.

the best way to tell if you do have a bad relay, is to listen for the fuel pump to prime when you turn the key to on.

if you dont hear a low humming noise in the rear when you turn the key to on (dont start)
then the relay is bad.

Default no dash lights, engine starts and dies

had similar issue with 8th gen civic. FIRST, check inside fuse box fuse #10 (METER) that signals ECM. Replace with new one. Also, remove any LED signal, Reverse bulbs if you recently put on because that must be the cause of blown fuse. Mine was due to LED reverse bulbs and problem happened after more than a month of bulbs install. Hope this helps.
