    Ok my civic still doesnt start and I believe t may be the ignition switch relay. I turn the key and nothing happens at all, not a sound. No clicks, starter does not engage, nothing. My dash lights come on but once I turn to start it wont do anything at all. I can pop start the car though by running a wire from the terminal on the starter and touching it to the positive terminal on the battery. So basically bypassing everything to start the car. Could this be the ignition switch? I need to ask because that baby is 80 bucks. Thanks for any help.

    First off, check fuses under the dash and under the hood. Secondly, you can test the wires coming from the ignition switch with a multimeter. Ignition is a black wire with a yellow stripe. The starter signal is a black wire with a white stripe. The yellow wire is the heater and a/c accessory wire and white with black stripe is the other accessory wire.
