Yes, there is a main fuse. It is located in the fuse box under the hood.

A faulty ground wire could also cause this.

Checking the continuity on each one separately (with the circuit deenergized) would be my first check.

2005 honda accord . Started hooking up the battery backwards , now it want do anything

Trace the positive ( red ) battery cable from the battery to the main under hood fuse block and see if it has a fuse where the cable bolts in the fuse block. Most newer cars have a high amp fuse to protect the system from this.

My 1998 honda civic ex coupe will not start. car makes starting noise but will not turn over. i tried to replace the battery but didnt get anything out of that. i replaced the alternator last year. not...

One question with many answers. It could be the starter,
or a good battery with dirty or bad cable connections or a
loose connection on the wire to the starter. Did the problem
occur gradually or all of a sudden? Usually the starter will
begin to warn you before it fails. A bad rotor, distributor or
alternator will not prevent the car from cranking.

Possible bad battery connection. Take off posts one at a time, clean posts, and connection.

2005 honda civic ex automatic stalled at 40 mph

Check the main fuses under the hood. There are several large ones there. A loose connection on one of them could have caused the sudden, complete electrical failure you described. If it is a loose connection, it would certainly explain why it "came back to life" by itself.

Also, might you possibly have any sort of aftermarket security system that has an immobilizer feature on it? While I wouldn't expect this to disable the entire car including the radio, if it were incorrectly installed I suppose it could.

I hope this help. Good luck!

Honda's have a main fuse or breaker under the hood, if it goes, the car is dead as a stone, and jumpstarting it will not work.
The fuse is in line with the Positive(red) battery cable, follow it from the battery to each stop at some point yo will find the fuse or breaker. If it is a breaker it will have a reset button, if it is a fuse you will have to replace it. It should be available at any decent auto parts store.
