Default 1994 Honda Accord. Not starting.

I am having issues with my 94 Honda Accord. Before today it would occasionally not start, it would blow fuses and looked as if there was a short in the wiring between the switch and the starter. I changed it out to a push button start and it worked fine. Then after this problem was fixed I started having issues again with it starting sometimes and then not starting. Sometimes after I had driven it (did not matter how far) it would not start up. I could let it set and then it would start not doing anything to it. But now it will not start and has not for a while now. I have checked to make sure it is getting fire which it is so I checked the fuel system and I cannot find any issues with it. The fuel pump is working or at least I can hear it when I turn the switch on, but it still will not start. I have changed the fuel filter to see if this is the problem and it still will not start. I am not sure what else I need to check and I am not sure what the problem could be.

Your not using the ignition the way Honda intended it to be used, therefor I cannot determine how well someone rigged your push button starter. There are many higher amperage contacts going through the ignition switch, you will have evaluate this one on your own, We wont know how it was wired.

Need to know what you mean by "not starting"???

Do you mean engine cranks, [starter motor is working] but engine will not fire, [start]?

Or do you mean engine will not crank, [starter motor is not working].

I ask because of the push button start rewire. 94
