Sounds like your neutral safety switch is bad. try running a wire from the positive lead of the battery to the small terminal of the starter to bypass it to see if it will crank over then. there will only be two wires on the starter, a small wire with a crimp on spade connector and a large cable bolted onto the starter, coming from the fuse box under the hood. if that doesnt solve your problem, then the starter is bad. if you have any questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

how often do you use it if it isnt a daily driver it could be a clock etc. but if its a daily driver then chances are you have a bad wire the easiest but not so quick is to pull your fuses and hook up a voltage tester to the battery and one by one start to put the fuses back in and watch the tester to see what one is drawing the power other than clock then when you find it you will have to trace the wire checking for breaks cracks corrosion etc.
The lights are not really an indication of the battery condition. They require about 5% of the power it needs to turn the starter. Check if the dash lights dim or go out when you try start. The only other ways of testing a battery is with a load tester or a hydrometer which tests the SG of the acid and give an indication of the state of charge of the battery. Try charge the battery or you can attempt a jump start from another vehicle about the same age as yours.
this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery
try taking the radio out and looking on the top for the parts number. call Honda and tell them what is going on and they will give you a 4 digit code that will reset the radio. i had the same problem with my 05 civic, did that and it worked for me. good luck
Possible bad connection between batt cables and battery. Even a weak battery will power something in the car but with asbolutely no power, it's usually a bad connection somewhere. Also check the battery itself (most "sealed" batteries can still be checked by prying up the cap to check the cells).
Hi. Jumping the battery when the radio is turned on will often cause a problem. I would check the fuses for the radio first as one of them may have blown. Regarding the clock it is blinking and needs to be reset.
Since this is a relatively new car I recommend going to a book store and purchasing the service manual for Honda which includes the 2007 models. This will you how to reset the clock. Then keep the manual in the glove compartment for all future reference.
