Question about 2004 Honda Accord
My car started shaking and the engine light flashed periodically. The car has been sitting the past 2 days and the temperature has been below freezing. I had a tune-up done in February, the starter replaced in August and the battery is only 1 year old.
If the coolant was frozen when you started the motor then there could be engine damage. If ok then run the fault codes and check for a faulty ambient temperature sensor.

My daughter's 1991 Honda Accord did the same thing. I discovered that the main relay had to be replaced. Apparently the solder used in the original main relay was poor and would actually "soften" in the heat and cause a disconnection. When the cabin temperature dropped, the solder would cool and reconnect. Anyway, replacing the main relay worked. My daughter's car has not had this problem since.

Try 'jiggling' the key while you hold it in the start position' this could be a failed ignition switch.
It could also be that the + terminal on the starter or starter solenoid may be corroded. Since the battery was just replaced, those terminals are probably clean enough but check the negative cable where it attaches to the chassis or block. If the connection is flaky here, enough current can often pass to allow lower current devices to operate but drop too much voltage if the starter is trying to operate. Starters require 100-200 amperes, many times higher than anything else in our vehicles and show up cruddy connections pretty quick.
