    hi from uk when you say will not start? and you have checked battery ? i assume the starter is not turning engine ?? do you have ignition? all lights on dash come on with ignition? is car manual or auto transmission ? what exactly happens when you turn key to start position ? click ? or turns engine slightly? try this ? turn h/lights on then try starter ? do h/lights dim ? or go off? please verify the above ? and would help to advise on possible fault you have ?

Your starter bendix isnt engaging, if your replace your starter your problem should go away. The rappid ( firing ) you are hearing is the starter spinning but the bendix isnt moving out and engaging the flywheel.

The distributor is a high failure rate item on Hondas if I had to guess I would guess the distributor is the culprit. good luck.

I have a 1996 honda accord lx and the car dont start I tryed the jump starting it and nothing I think its the firing

Im not clear on the stauts of the vehicle. Is it completley dead as if the battery does not work? Can you charge the battery or check to see if the battery is dead. If you have power going and the engine cranks but does not turn over it could be many things. It could simply be a fuse. Check your owners manual for location of your fuse box. Check all the fuses that goes to the starter, engine , fuel pump, anything that may correspond with electricity or starting the engine etc. Did the run , then stop working or did it do soemthing in between? I need a little more info.

I changed the battery on my 1996 Honda Accord LX and now the car won't start. I have power, but the LED on the extreme left of the dashboard blinks 3 times repeatedly, the turn indicator sound clicks and...

Do you have a remote door lock? Try clicking your doors open and closed. You can turn the key to the start position three times and re-set the security that way on some Acura/Hondas. My son has had to turn the key to the start position and change the position of the Automatic gear shifter - back and forth. I think it has something to do with the Neutral/Park safety switch on his '93 Legend.
Make sure the ground wire is good. The security and starting circuits depend on a ground wire going to the engine from the battery/transmission area. It may be loose or not getting good contact.
Honda/Acura has kept the old fashion battery post type batteries. Always wire brush the inside of the cable connections and the battery posts.

Honda accord lx 1996 6 transmission dipstick

For the V-6 model, the dipstick is located down low on the transaxle, on the drivers side of the car, if it is low, usually 1 pint of of fluid is needed to raise from low notch to high notch. also if it appears to be dark or burnt, smells burnt, you should replace the tranaxle fluid. Good Luck!
