Default CAR WONT START!!! PLEASE HELP!!! (already searched)

Hey everyone.. Been a long time reader of HT forums, but first time registering. Anyway heres the deal:

Two weeks ago I went to leave my job and my car wouldnt start so I had it towed home. Next day I check over fuses, connections, etc. It starts raining and my day is over. Next day I replace the fuel filter and it starts after a few seconds of cranking. I go out of town and leave my car at home, and when I got home that night I went to start it and nothing.. Hasnt started since. My relay isn't clicking on and my cel stays on. ECU is not throwing any codes either. I replace my distributor cap, rotor, plug wires, plugs, and I checked my harness according to the Helms manual and all seems good.. Im getting power to the relay, but the relay isnt clicking on.. However as of yesterday I am not getting spark either. So no fuel, and no spark. Car cranks fine though. I replaced my main relay with a used one, and no luck. Not going to rule it out because, after all, I did buy it used. Its been two weeks without a car.. I am thinking of just bringing it to Honda and shelling out the dough to have them diagnose it Any help would be greatly appreciated as my honda dealer wont take my car until wednesday.. I have a few days for last stitch efforts.. PLEASE HELP!!!

-Mike

OK.. in case anyone is interested, i finally got my car running after a few days of getting screwed around by Honda and another mechanic. To make a long story short, my coil arc'd to one of the wires in the distributor therefore burning up my distributor and frying my ecu However, after being quoted almost a thousand dollars by the good people at Honda, I take it to another mechanic because I am in slight disbelief of the low probability of the arcing that devastated my pimp ride. He quotes me 850. Needless to say, I towed my car home and bought a JUN chipped ECU and stock distributor from a friend of a friend for $150 Now my car runs very nice to say the least I have pics of what your coil SHOULD NOT look like. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll post them ASAP..
