    This problem already existed prior to changing these parts. I changed the parts trying to fix the problem but there was no improvement.

You must let the keys reprogram themselves by following a lenghtly proceedure. Turn your key to on position but do not start. Leave it for 10 minutes & then turn key off. Repeat 2 more times exactly 10 minutes & do not start. At this point the key should be reprogramed & be able to start car. You may have to do the same thing for each additional key. The only alternative is to take it to the dealer & have them reprogram the keys. Whenever the battery or alternator is disconnected the keys are affected. Good luck!

    Is the starter new or a rebuild? Also make sure your engine grounding is good.Your pcm (power control module) may be acting up. Do you have an automatic starter? You may have a starter relay problem. Good luck!

Turn key will not start battery is good


Make sure the connections and the cables are good.No corrosion on cables.If the lights in the dash flicker this is usually a sign that the battery is not good or it is not making good contact.Have the charging system and battery load tested.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Pt wont start or turn over


try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.

Check the battery cables and make sure they are clean and are connected tightly to the battery; check the ground and make sure it has a good connection and is tight (it will be the black cable and is connected to your chassis by a bolt. Have your battery checked even though it is showing a green light; nothing is fail proof. Check your fuses and relays. If you can jump start it take it and have the starting and ignition system checked at a shop or auto parts store. A bad alternator will drain your battery.

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over


Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
