What engine, see list at end. 2.2L 2.7L or 3.0L?
never post no starts, with no engine stated, all below is GENERIC HONDA.
you are guessing why guess?
how did yo prove its not the battery.?? jumper cables starts?
how? never tell the mech, that, let him find the truth.
if you tell him wrong, he may spend a fortune proving you wrong.
(not me but can) see why? (labor and wrong parts replaced)
is this a no crank >? or a no start, why start at step 3.
or even not tell step 1 &2 ? was done.....

all use old folks , have hand cranked old tin lizzys.
and owned 50 motorcycles all FOOT KICK started.
so if it dont crank robustly it will never start is not lost on the old crowd.

  1. checked all fuses yet? CEL lamp glows in dash KEY ON??????
  2. cranks fast?
  3. got spark?
  4. ever done the 60k miles tune up, and is the CAM belt fresh.
if the cam belt snaps, the whole engine can be lost.
i do leak down tests on all hondas. for good reason.
and 100x time that for Honda's NEVER SERVICED !!!
i can even hear you crank it, and see its lost compression just buy the sound of the starter, (sounds like sewing machine running, no load)

if compression is good and spark is good, and not flooding
you can use test fuel, to prove engine and spark is good.
but id not, if that cam belt is not fresh.
you never posted engine type ,size or cyl count so can be accurate here.
my 1st rule on honda's (all interference engines)
is: RULE1: First do no harm.
and cranking it like mad, is just that.

see belt change intervals. USA miles.
did you replace it? ever?
Honda belts, fleabay $10 belts will never last this long, ever....!!!!!
EngineInterferenceReplace belt rules. (repeats for life of engine)
2.0 (SOHC)Yes90,000
2.0 (DOHC) (K20)Yes90,000
2.2 (SOHC)(F22B)Yes90,000
2.2 (DOHC)(F22C)Yes90,000
2.2 (DOHC Passport)(J32)Yes75,000
Buy Gates belts or Honda real.

OK: ILL pretend engine compression is good
cranks fast
spark is bad. (on all cyl)
connect (in USA) the scan tool and crank for 5 seconds
id bet the ECU just told you (by RPM=0 , or DTC why it dont start)

Honda civic car will not start.immobiliser cannot be reset with key hondadealer has said the whole ignition system has to be replaced

I don't Believe that remote start can only be re-programed by the dealer as it is anti theft prevention device get a 2nd opinion or call the dealership ..unless something has become truly wrong with your ignition system but a remote device works without a key could try to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery itself to see if it will reset itself foe a few minutes then reattach and secure it but ,,,remote works without the key yntil you wish to drive it at which point you need to insert the key to forwards position to drive it

2006 honda accord, after changing the battery. resetting the radio code. the radio will not pick up any stations???

Unless the Accord was jump started, creating possible power surge to damage radio, it should not of had any relationship to the radio.

But, just in case, would suggest disconnecting battery for 5 minutes, reconnecting battery, reentering radio code and see what happens.

If that fails, hopefully your under 36k miles or got the Factory extended warranty "Honda Care" Service plan, so take to the Honda Dealership to see what they say.

I just replaced my battery in my 2006 honda accord with a new battery. Now the car will not start! Is there a sensor or a reset button????

Hi there. When you purchased the battery was it supplied to you as dry cell battery? If so, was the battery filled with distilled water and left for at least 30 minutes to become effective/charge? If the battery was purchased (wet) already filled with distilled water, is it fully charged, effective and ready to go? When you say the car will not start, is the engine cranking over at full speed? If it is, then we need to consider quite a number of points. Firstly, are you absolutely sure the correct specification of battery is fitted and are the positive and negative terminals exactly the same and the right way round? If so, firstly, to ‘reset’ everything, switch off the ignition (in fact remove the ignition key) disconnect the battery for at least 5 seconds and then reconnect the battery. Then try starting the car. If the car does not start you then need to view if the PGM-FI ECU has any fault codes flashing. If there is a code showing, I’m afraid to say that you will need to seek the help of a Honda Dealer. Hope this helps get you started. Scottech.
