This is a very common problem with STARTER SOLENOID CONTACTS. Year after years they corrode and starts burning up. These are located at solenoid compartment attached on the starter. Soon or later this problem will worsen up to the point that your car won't start.
You have two option:
Replace the Starter Solenoid Contacts.
You can buy a kit from here:
http://www.sherco-auto.com/contacts.htm
In this case is one more thing that you cannot replace. This is the copper ring at the solenoid plunger.
We just sand it up with sand paper over a hard and flat surface.
In some cars replacing the starter with a rebuilt one is a good solution.
In two options you have to remove and install the STARTER anyway. Hope this will help.

The key turn but the car dont start, but when i kick start it it start and i wont have a problem the hole day starting only in the morning


The battery needs to be replaced. After the first start in the morning the battery gets charged and the engine is also "hot" making it easier for the starter motor to turn it over. Therefor less current is drawn from the battery and you get a start every time. In the morning the engine is cold making it difficult to turn. The battery rested the night loosing some charge and is also cold which affects the current it can deliver at that stage. With the cold engine it is not able to turn it fast enough to get it started. A new battery will solve your problem.

Which is the problem, no fire, or no crank. No fire means to spark to engine, but engine turns over fine. No crank means engine won't turn over when key is turned. I'm assuming engine will not turn over. Three most common problems. 1. Weak battery (get tested at auto parts store). Will hold charge for short time once started, but loses it when sits overnight. 2. Bad starter. Possible but not likely, still not out of the question. 3. Bad battery cables. This is an easy test. Take a pair of jumper cables and bypass the battery cables by connecting black side of jumper cable to "-" of battery and block of engine, and red of jumper cables to "+" of battery and (tap) Battery terminal post on starter...engine should turn over. Ensure you take all safety precautions to prevent car from moving during this procedure. Best of luck resolving this problem.

What have you checked so far ?
With any no-start situation you need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression.

I would suggest checking/replacing coil packs, and fuel pump operation. If they are good maybe a bad ignition switch is possible.

03 Honda Accord EX will occasionally flood on a cold morning; ~17 F etc. After it has warmed up and all other times it starts OK. This does not happen often but I am concerned that it will leave my wife...


When it's very cold and the car will start right away, the most common thing that happens is the engine will flood. When you turn the key to start, the gas is sprayed into the engine. It does not know that the car didn't start and will continue to spray gas as long as the key it turned to start. That is why you should not crank for longer than 20-30 seconds at a time.
Then if it will not start, hold your gas pedal all the way to the floor, and the gas spray is stopped, so that the extra gas can be expelled. You can now try to start agian normally.

Started as a bad idle problem that got progresivly worse.


The bad iddle is an indication of poor gas mixture. Either weak fuel pump to deliver gas to meet Air:Gas ratio of 14.6:1 to maintain continuous combustions, or bad Fuel distributor. People try to get your money to do the tune up, but it will not help you in this case. Good luck in finding.
