One thing you can try. When my kill switch is ON, and i turn the key into the first position, I can hear my fuel pump priming up. If the kill switch is OFF, then I can't hear the fuel pump.

So you can try to disconnect the black wire, turn the key, if you don't hear the fuel pump, then that should be the correct wire.

Another thing you can try, is disconnect the black wire, when you turn the key into the first position, look at the yellow Check Engine Light in your gauge cluster. If the light turns on and stays on, then you've got the right cable. If it turns on, then turns of after a couple seconds, then its the wrong one.

The nice thing about bestclimb's particular write up, is that it doesn't involve any cutting of any OEM wires, so if you've got the wrong wire, just plug it back in.

In the mean time, im still trying to locate the schematics for the 1996-2000 civics somewhere online.
