Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

Have a load test done on the battery as this is indicative of bad battery or dirty connections on the posts.

It could be your fuel pump relay this exact thing happened to me before
there is a little box in your trunk on the drivers side kind of where
your trunk lid attaches to the rest of the car there usually kind of
hidden but dig your hand around in there and you should find it if your
lucky it will be one of the ones with a reset button push the button
and try again your car should start if thats the problem.
Now if its one of the ones with a little **** in it its gonna be a bit more complicated youre gonna have to take it off the car what its attached with varies by car but take that ****** off unplug it then give it a little shake if you can hear something floating around then theres your problem youll have to take something like a nail file put it in the whole then just sort of slowly move it around until you no longer hear that piece floating around plug it back in but dont completely re-attach because it might take a couple of tries anyway try it out and if it works then go ahead and completely re-attach it
i know it sounds kind of stupid but this happens ALL THE TIME its a safety feature but it can be set off really easily by going over a bump to hard someone knocks into your car etc
mine was caused by an idiot kicking my car in the exact location of the box :)
good luck happy driving

First make sure the shift lever is properly in the park position. Hondas tend to have little problem in that area after a few years.
Second make sure battery terminals are clean and secure. Next you should try jumping the battery. A low battery may produce enough electricity to run the radio, lights, chimes etc but not enough to crank engine.
