Question about Honda Accord
There are quite a few potential causes of this in a car that has been sitting up for 6 years. These can range from a problem with the cars ignition switch to a bad coil (faulty coil will cause fuel pump not to operate on some Hondas) , fuel pump cut off relay or the fuel pump itself.
You are right to troubleshoot this a bit further before jumping to a conclusion. Rather than me getting into an exhaustive list of possibilities I am including this excellent link which is a very comprehensive troubleshoot of non starting in the Honda of this era including diagrams and photos. See link; http://techauto.tripod.com/
Please do navigate the tabs for a thorough explanation of the potential issues.
It is highly likely that the non start problem in this car is electrical in nature through years of sitting up. Also fuel gauges and the like often have a habit of magically beginning to work again after a few days on the road which is a definite bonus!
I sincerely hope this information helps you to pin down the issue. As I say the information is very comprehensive and covers all possibilities you are likely to encounter.
Please do let me know how you get on and remember to rate my answer if this has helped.
Thanks for using FixYa.
