Question about 1996 Honda Accord
You might need to check your fuel pump. it might be that its not sucking up fuel to your injectors. hit the gas tank with a hammer nd if it turns on when you hit it, then its the fuel pump that you have to change out.

Hi ,One sugestion is to chech your timing belt by taking the oil cap of and look if the valvas move when some one else crank the enginee,If they dont move the belt is bad , if they move check for fuel delivery and ignition module. Good Luck.

Thanks for using Fixya!
Have you recently washed your engine? if yes, open up the distributor and check if there are traces of water inside it. If you find water or if its moist inside, just wipe off the distributor cap with dry cloth and replace the cap and everything should be okay after that.
If you haven't washed your car lately and its not raining around your place for a while...its possible that the ignition fuse or relay is busted. Another possibility is you probably have a bad ignition coil. just have it replaced and your car should start after that. also try to clean the contact points inside the distributor. use fine sanding paper to clean the contact points inside the distributor. you would probably find some white residue in there. take it out.
Have a great day.

Has the electrician checked the igniton modual they have been known to go down , but have you seen the rotor arm turn when the engine is turning over or just turned it by hand because it will be tining belt failier if you can turn it by hand.

I assume this has a coil pack instead of a distributor. This sounds like the Timing Belt Broke while the vehicle was running. This makes the situation a little harder. Remove the park plugs and connect a compression checker to the Cylinders and check for compression. If you have no compression it is likely this is your problem. It is possible that there is a visual inspection hole where the over head cam is. It is possible to look through that while it is cranking. If the cam is not turning the belt is broken. Another way would be to remove the valve cover and visually check the valve operation when cranking. If they are not functioning then the belt is broken. Now the really bad part is if the belt did break during operation you are going to have to remove the Head assembly in order to have it checked and or rebuild as in most cases when this happens every valve on the head will be bent. I recommend you get the Haynes Repair manual before you attempt this task.
