i was putting in interior lighting and i spliced it to the rear lights (the lights that go on when headlights are on). I broke a fuse and i thought i would just turn on the lights just to see what would happen without the fuse (stupid). now my car will not start. i believe it is a wiring issue and i was just wondering if you guys knew if i should completely rewire it or just try and track down the problem. i have already replaced the distributor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel pump and fuel filter. i hear no fuel pump when i put the key in and i also dont have any spark. it only has like 130000 miles on it so i refuse to junk my baby.
my car will not start even after replacing all major ignition components. on 1995 Honda Civic

Unhook all that stuff and check ALL fuses! (ALL FUSES.)

I dont see any connection, other than a blown fuse, to what you stated that would cause the cat not to run! IF you just blew a tail light fuse there is no connection to the no start. What else you got?

Was the car running before you spliced the wires ? As Wetry said , interior lighting circuit has nothing to do with engine not starting. Unless while you were in working around fuse box , you knocked something loose in the ignition circuit....Do you have a volt-ohmmeter?
