    first off the gauge cluster doesnt always come on when I turn on my lights. any idea why? and also, the engine doesnt always start up when I go to turn it on, any idea what the problems could be with either?

    any advice to give and time taken to reply would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    get them at a junk yard and they should be cheap. pull the ignition switch and light switch from a 91 civic. grab the keys for the new ignition switch or have a new key made. as for the diffidulty in installation...the light switch is just a plug in thing. the ignition switch might be different...i'm not sure on that though. check it out. put out a tread on it. someone will help you.

    +1 I had to change mine too, and it wasnt very hard.

    The ignition switch I bought used from a junker was $5 cause the chick at the counter didnt know what it was.

    Check two additional things. For the dash lights, make sure the red/black wire has continuity from your light switch all the way to your radio. For the no start, check the clutch (MT) or neutral (AT) switch.
