What might be wrong with a 1996 Honda Civic DX that suddenly stopped running?

ignition module It's possible that the CDI module went bad. If the car has a tachometer built in to the dash you can use that to make a simple check. Crank the engine while watching the tach. Does the needle on the tach bounce slightly when cranking or does it stay still? If the tach needle doesn't move the CDI module is dead. If the tach needle does move the problem is somewhere else.

How do you install a tach?

This entirely depends on the vehicle and the type of tach your referring to such as a add on tach or an OEM in dash tach. To explain how to install and OEM tach would take far to long. I would suggest a add on tach that mounts basically where ever you want to mount it. Most of these tachs explain the installation instructions. I personally recommend a tach by Autometer you can view their products on the web at the link below. , EzForJesus

I'm not sure that a tach requiers a fuse .i could not trace out the useage for a fuse on my 91 tach went out.however i did trace out through my chilton schematics that the tach receives its electrical power dirrectly via the acc1 & acc2 relays located beside the fuse block. under the steering wheel .behind the panel closest to the drivers door.on the right side of the fuse panel there are 4 relays .1 brown ,3 blue. the brown is rearwindow defogger, the bottom blue one is the ignishtion relay #1 .the 2 in the mid area are acc1 & acc2 if it is not the relays check for a tach sensor on the bottom of the block it may need replacing..all the best...buddy mack

How do you put in a tach if your vehicle doesn't come stock with one?

there will be a spot on back of distributor cap it will say tach run wire from there to gauge. You probably need to run a switched 12v lead as well to illuminate the tach at night. The tach slot on the distributor will take care of 'timing' the pulse to the tach. Often times the tach will have a switch setting for 4-6-8 cylinder. Read the manufacturer instructions carefully.
