My car wont start

Please help me! I have 1996 Honda Civic LX. I ran it out of gas. I didnt try to start it until the next day. After I put gas in it. i go to start the car and there was nothing. The car was dead. I took it to a Honda service repair and they couldnt find anything wrong with car, nothing. They checked everything. Here recently it dawned upon that I might have locate a fuel cut off switch. I know some cars have and some dont. Could someone tell me if my CIVIC has one and where is it located.

Re: My car wont start

Your civic doesn't have a fuel cut off switch. If there is gas in your tank then your fuel pump is prob dead. Is your car cranking ?

Re: My car wont start

If it doesn't even crank then it's not the fuel. Your starter motor could be dead? Or even your battery.


Is it makin any kinda noises when you try to crank it?

Re: My car wont start

When you ran out of gas were you trying to start it for a long time? Extended spinning of the starter can cause it to wear out.
