Having problems with your 1992 Honda Civic ?
1988 Honda Civic starts when it wants to. Shop has replaced relay & ignition module. Does this car have a fuse/relay for ignition system? Car gets fuel, but not always spark. Can the ignition switch be bad?
An ignition switch can be replaced. To test first if it is the ignition switch you may use a tester for continuity. By switching the ignition switch to its on position there should be continuity detected by the tester, normally indicated by a beeping sound. If the contacts if faulty or bad you will not hear the sound or hear it intermittently by either moving the switch or get an infinity resistance whatever position.
Replace your distributor cap and rotor. If that does not solve the problem then replace the distributor. Honda and Acura cars are well known for there weak distributor. You can also get it rebuilt at a electronics shop. I would get it rebuilt over buying a brand new one. You can also go to the junkyard and get one, I see the 1988 Honda Civic in there all of the time here in Southern California so there are plenty to get a replacement from
