    hey peps figured it out

    the charging circuit for a civic is also in a curcuit with the ABS if you trip your ABS the car stops charging and no power

    mind you i got this info after i pulled the entire wire harness out of the engine compartment and went through the whole thing looking for shorts it was a very long sunday after noon LOL...........
