Unhappy Please, Please, Help!! - Civic Won't start

I got a 92 civic dx 4 door with d15b7 engine and p06 obd1 ecu
Basically i disconnected my battery for a week or so because i was redoing my interior and din't want to get shoked. then after everything was done my car will crank, but will not start.
I do not her the fuel pump engaging so i thought it was the main relay.
the main relay is fine and works.
checked the PGM-FI fuse and there is no power going though fuse - replaced it still nothing.
im running on low budget here and would like to avoid dealers or mechanics who will suck on their thumb for 4 hours and charge me for while saying that they could not find the problem.
please help me because i need the car for college and i hate to carpool with my friend cause she is sooo effin slow. anyways, any help will be greatly apreciated!
Thanx in advance

What specific main relay fuse (#18, 24, or 31) are you talking about?

Have you checked whether fuse 41 is blown?

Fuse 18 is only hot when the ignition key is turned to ON with the clutch depressed (MT) or the AT in neutral or park.

Fuse 31 is in the under the hood fuse box (see diagram below).

If you have SRS, fuse 24 is in the SRS fuse box. If you do not have SRS, check fuse 12 in the under dash fuse box. These fuses are only hot with the ignition key turned to ON.

I had an integra once and while I was driving it just died out of nowhere and wouldn't ever start afterwards. Turned out to be the Ignition Control Module inside the distributor. That may not be it but it couldn't hurt to buy one and try it. If it's not, you can always return it.

If you really don't have power at fuse 18, a new ICM will not help you. The ICM is needed to produce spark at the spark plugs. If spark at the plugs is fine, then return the expensive ICM for a refund.

Does the starter crank the engine when the clutch is depressed and the ignition key is turned?

So fuse 18 is fine but it is not receiving battery power, right? If so, focus all of your efforts here. Step 1: State how exactly you are testing for power at fuse 18? Step 2: Use a multimeter to check the electrical continuity of the BLK/RED wire that runs between fuse 18 and the starter cut relay.
