Default 92 hatch wont crank over. Help please, work in the AM

I have a 1992 civic hatch with a b18b swap and it will not crank over. I drove my car earlier today and when I got back in my car to drive back home I turned the key and it did nothing. Basically it acts like I dont have my clutch pushed in and the starter won't click at all. My car has the clutch sensor disabled (I can start the car without engaging the clutch). I took out the starter and got it tested and it was fine so I jumped the starter to the battery and drove her home. After I got home I replaced the PGMFI Relay because I read somewhere that it was more than likely the problem, but that didn't fix it. I'm at a dead end now because all the wires to the starter look fine and the relay that everyone said was their problem, isnt my problem. I really need this fixed by tomorrow morning because I have work at 6:45am, so any leads as to what the problem could be is MUCH appreciated! BTW the car has full power when I turn the key to start it.

Thanks!

Are you getting power at the starter solenoid (small wire) when you turn the key to start?

There's two sensors that get push in when u push ur clutch down to start ur car there's one that's behide the clutch and there's one also Way above under ur dash like wh inerer sering wheel is at it gets push in when u hold the clutch down but a rubber ring that's on it an usalluy it falls off and cause the car to not start cuz it acts like the clutch is not push it and maybe that sensor went out and if u pull it out and cross wire it togther or paper clip test it that's how u will know if its it if it doesn't start when u test it ther sensor went out if it does start then the rubber spaceer just fell off this same problem happen to me and this is what I did and it work

negative amigos. If it did, the car would be starting perfectly haha

and it cant be a sensor on the clutch because it is bypassed.

Update: I decieded to plug the wire back up to the starter and it cranked over using the key. Later that day when Im about to leave work I try to start it with the key and back to the same problem before.

Test the ignition switch and your bypass of the pedal switch.

By the way, the main relay has nothing to do with the starter. There's all kinds of myths on the internet.

Ain't that the truth.

There's a ton of great info on the internet, but there's a lot of stuff out there that's just plain wrong.

I wish I knew that before I spent the 50 bucks lol. And I tried looking around for the jumped connection for the clutch but its either very well hidden or doesnt exist. How do I test the ignition though?

Look for the interlock switch at the top of the clutch pedal. Is the connector unplugged and shorted with a wire or are the two wires spliced?
