I think Pinky is dead

Stats
Name: Pinky
Make/Model: 1995 honda civic hb
Problem
So a few days ago I left my headlights on at work. Jumped the car and everything is fine. Then yesterday I went to start it and it started then shut off. So I started it again and it was fine so I drove to work and back. Today I went out to start my car and it won't start. It chugs but no start. The radio, alarm, doorlocks and lights work and everything but Matt told me it might just take some more juice to start it so I got someone to jump me. Still no start. So is pinky on her deathbed at 215000km or can she be fixed?

try a new battery, it might be your started, but the best thing to do would be check the voltage of the battery,

1. Battery
2. Starter
3. Alternator

4. Main relay
5. Fuse(s) and Relay(s) under the hood.

check it all, haha...

when you turn your igntion do you see your engine light come on and then you should hear a click as it goes off.

On hot days like where having now im 100 percent sure its the mian relay, if you have a old in their its so common for them to just cook. honda has them for 78.00 bucks.

you still may get spark and it could still be a problem with the distributor... i've seen where the set screw has come loose on the rotor and it was still spinning and providing spark to the plugs but out of sequence... now who here can tell when they are checking for spark if the sequence is correct when you turn it over? i know i can't. this only takes a few seconds to check, just take the dist cap off.

Its the main relay...happens all the time in my new beater car. Kick the lower fuse box under the driver side dash as your trying to start it.
