1995 Honda Civic 4 cyl Automatic

Okey.I have a 1995 Honda Civic with a 1.5 V-TEC in it. Here is what happened. I had it parked and moved it to the other side of the street to install new fog lights. After doing so, I got in to leave and now it won't start. WANTS TO, but just won't. I have put on a whole new destributer on it because it is not getting spark. It still is not getting any. I have checked all fuses and connections. Now I am just waisting money. I am at wits end here. I had just bought the car and only had it for less than a week. It drove fine as rain. Please help me. Thanks

Was this distributor used or new? Have you checked the wiring.

Do this ICM test, this will help you see if you have all the proper wiring to the ICM.

Yes the distributer I just put on is new. And still nothing. My car is set to street race so alot of things have been taken out of the compartment to lighten up the car and the battery is in the truck (all is how I bought it) so the wirering is all a lil odd to me. Did notice two wires, one from distributer, both going into the distibuter one way or another were cut and (badly) spliced together. I am thinkin it has to be somethin stupid that would be easy to fix but I just keep missin it.

Well then go over all the spliced and cut wires and solder and heatshrink them. You probably have a weak connection somewhere.
