If you heard a click when you cranked it, that's usually a dead battery. But, you need to check the oil level. I've had 2 RSX's that jumped time because the oil level dropped too low.
The tensioner on the timing chain is hydraulically controlled, if the oil level drops the tensioner looses tension and the chain jumps time. Its an extensive and expensive repair.

replace de ignition module first.. if still wont start good chances is the crank sensor is located behind the timing belt.. my 94 legend use to do the same thing until i replace the crank sensor.. and also if u can afford i will suggest u to replace the main fuel relay too... all this is after u are 100 pcnt sure that ur fuel pump is working....

I f the car turned over before you replaced the alternator then maybe the problem is not the alternator but ignition issues, sometime the igniton module goes on these cars without warning my advise would be to remove one of the spark plugs to check for spark, remove wire then plug in plug to wire lay the plug on a part of the motor that is metallic, have an assistant turn the car over and try to start look to see if plug has a blue spark or purple don't do test in direct sunlight. If a good spark is seen go on to next test stick your finger into the hole where the spark plug goes have an assistant turn motor over you should hear and feel alot of pressure trying to push your finger out of hole if you don't feel a good deal of pressure you probably broke the timing belt and the cylinder head must be removed and rebuilt because of the nature of the designed interference engine (valve gets hit by piston bending it when timing belt breaks) good luck

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

for you to check if it is the fuel pump, see if there is fuel running out of the hose if you remove the fuel filter. Another is to directly connect the pump to the battery. If the pump works that way, then it could be a efi relay issue which is found underneath the dash or a wiring issue.
