The 88 Honda Prelude doesn't have a restart button. If you are turning the key and nothing happens except for the dash lights coming on, the problem is usually in one of these three areas: The Ignition Switch, The Neutral Safety Switch (which is located on the clutch pedal on standard transmissions and on the shifter on automatics), or the Starter itself. To test this, pull the small wire off the starter (it just plugs in), connect a test light to the wire, and turn the ignition switch all the way to start. If the test light lights up, you need a starter. If it doesn't, you need to reconnect the wire and have a professional look at the system.

Can you use a 89 Honda Prelude to restore a 87 Honda Prelude?

yes, the parts are interchangeable Edit by an 86 Prelude owner: note that an 89 prelude is the 3rd generation, and the 87 is a second generation, for body mouldings and panels they are not perfectly interchangeable, many of the parts from an 89 prelude will not fit an 87, Honda is notorious for changing little details that make things just incapable of fitting a seemingly similar car. the late 80's Accords and 84-88 Preludes will share many parts, but the 89-91 Prelude will not offer you a whole lot.

Will a 90 Honda Prelude motor fit in an 89 Honda Civic DX?

No, the B20A or B21A motors will not fit into ANY other car than the 88-91 Prelude it was intended for. This is because the engine block was designed to sit at an 18-degree rearward slant in order to clear the low hood-line of the car. So these motors will not work in anything but a 3rd generation Prelude. If you intend to make it work and swap a B20A or B21A motor into a 4th generation Honda Civic then by all means have fun, but it will be neither easy nor cheap to do so because a lot of custom fabrication will be involved. It would be a waste of time and money.
