you said the check engine light came on before try pulling code to see if there is history code. I am a honda tech at a dealer and no it doesnt sound like a starter to me. Is the green key light on the dash flashing?

had similar issue with 8th gen civic. no dash lights, car starts and dies, and sometimes does not crank at all.

FIRST, check inside fuse box fuse #10 (METER) that signals ECM. Replace with new one. Also, remove any LED signal, Reverse bulbs if you recently put on because that must be the cause of blown fuse. Mine was due to LED reverse bulbs and problem happened after more than a month of bulbs install. Hope this helps.
