Hello let me help you with any of your Honda problems.
From everything that you are describing it seems that the electrical portion of your ignition switch has failed and is causing your problems.
Is that something that can be taking out easily and replace by me with no special tools?
Yes it is not too difficult to replace. Let me post some directions for you.

It says to remove the steering wheel and airbag but that is not neccessary.....just remove the upper and lower steering column covers and then the two screws that hold the electrical portion to the base as shown in the picture.
Before removing any screws for the switch follow the harness down to the under dash fuse box in the kick panel and disconnect the connector. This will prevent and accidental arcing of the switch.
Ok, what does one cost. And is the procedure simple enough to get a few from the junk yard?
List price for a new one is $76.54 so it is not too expensive and yes it is easy enough to get a few from the salvage yard.
Any other possibilities, in case this doesn't do the trick?
I would check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight as well as the connections at the under hood fuse box but I am confident this is going to take care of your problem. I have seen this happen many times over the years.
THat sounds pretty damned confident. I do like that. Why would a fuse box chatter like that though, when the car has no key in it?
You may have a relay that is sticking from time to time and the contacts are clicking on and off......that is what it sounds like.
I would start with the switch and see if the noise still occurs after that....you may have a seperate problem.
Alrighty then SLonneman95, you're giving me good vibes. Thanks for your time. peace
