Question about 1996 Honda Accord
My car wont start and we have had this problem before. when we took it in the shop said that the positive battery wire from the starter was loose. they tightened it and we no longer had and starting issues with the car.
There is a plug that connects the positive starter wire to the battery and there are two wires that runs from the positive terminal of the battery . One to the fuse box and the other to the starter

The starting system's pretty simple. If you're getting no voltage to the solenoid wire when you turn the key, then the fuse is burned out, the starter switch is bad, or a starter relay is bad.
If it's an automatic, the neutral switch could be bad or misaligned. Hold the key in the start position and jiggle the shifter around. Try starting it in "N" instead of "P". Try forcibly pushing the shifter past "P" while you try to start it.
If it's a 5-speed, the clutch interlock switch could be toast. Try holding the key in the start position and push the clutch pedal up and down, including hard to the floor. Look under the dash at the switch, make sure it's not physically broken and the wires are attached.
Check all the fuses.
Find the starter relay. If there's another relay just like it there in the relay panel, swap them. If the car turns over after that, go buy a new relay.
If you just need to get to work right now, use a piece of jumper wire from the + terminal of the battery to the starter solenoid terminal on the starter and start the engine that way, just make sure the key's on, the parking brake is set, and it's in neutral!

check your starter relay. if the starter passed the test at the shop check to see if you are getting signal to your solenoid on the starter it shoul be the little post when you turn the key to the crank position, check to see if you have power at the big post which comes from your battery, check your grounds. check your fuses see if you have a crank fuse or an ignition fuse.

Try smacking the starter with a blunt object ( hammer or something ) Smack it several times while cranking. It may free up. Listen for the click at the starter. Its prabably a bad starter. Common symptom your describing. If it does start replace the starter.

If you removed the starter, and placed battery voltage to the starter, and it clicked just like it did when installed, then the starter needs to be replaced. When you had it tested and they said it was good, did you verify this claim?
