Hi there, I recently had to change the battery in my 93' Honda Civic DX. During the battery change, I heard a few beeps and saw a few sparks, afterwards, my car will no longer start up. The engine will crank over and all, but won't fully start, everything else also works. Anyone had this problem before or could possibly know what's wrong? Someone told me it's possibly the alarm system and could be an ignition kill switch, but I've tried everything to deactivate the alarm and to no success.

in the fuse box under the hood there is a main fuse, it is about 2-3 inches long and copper colored, it will have a phillips head screw holding down both ends i think, check that and report back

how can I pull the alarm out? should I just follow the red power wire for the alarm and remove the brain?

no, no smoke, I made sure to put + on + and - on -, but I just forgot to put the positive end on first before putting on the negative end.
