Sizzling is not good!! Coming from under the dash is definitely not good. The relay that controls the starter is called a solenoid and is physically located on the starter. If the car started OK before the battery went dead I think it's safe to say the solenoid is not the problem.
If you yourself can operate a voltmeter, Or find someone that can do this, the only thing I can suggest is to try to find what cooked under the dash. (No easy task).
You can jumper the starter by getting a device at an auto parts store called a remote starter switch.
Follow the instructions that come with it.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh.

Starter drive spinning but not shooting out into flywheel for turning engine over. If you remove it & grease up the shaft of the starter that it slides on & keep working it on the bench, you may save some money. Once you have it lubed & working good one bench, put it back in & give it a try. Take a look at gear teeth for damage while it's on the bench as well.

A common problem is the ignition switch.
When it does not start....with the car in park or neutral jump it at the starter....or check for power at the small wire at the starter while trying to crank the engine.
Power in the small wire while trying to crank means 99% starter problem......no power means 99% switch.
The switch is available in the after market parts stores.

What are you wondering is correct. Let check the coil first. if coil is good the there is a problem with the ignition module. If the ignition module is good then a problem with the crankshaft sensor. The coil can be checked by measure resistance of the terminals of the primary coil and secondary coil separately to see if it open. To check if it can generate a spark, once you identify the primary coil terminal, run 12 V wire to these terminal, connect a spark plug to the secondary coil, by just leaving a spark plug with connected with spark plug wire and let it touch the engine chassis. Now you have to make pulses at the 12 volts connection by making a break and connection several time to turn it on and off to generate the spark at spark plug. The ignition module is supposed to do what you are doing now to generate the spark. If it is bad, it can't do what you did then a spark is not generated. For the crankshaft sensor, only the shop can tell you it is bad or not. Good luck.

Hello! I need to understand the problem...Just a couple of questions to get started...When you say that you changed the igniter, do you mean the ignition coil? Have you checked for spark (hold plug to ground)...If there is a strong spark and fuel, the problem is timing...The boss is the Crank Position Sensor and it may be the problem...But first I need to be sure there is spark...When you spray starter fuel into the throttle body and the engine has a strong spark, even if the timing is way off the engine will sputter...If nothing fires, I have to believe there isn't spark...Send a comment and I'll get your Honda running.............Guru..............Saailer
