Check your battery. Flip up the red cover on the positive side of the battery and inspect the battery post for corrosion. If you see a white buildup, remove the cables and clean the terminals with a wire brush. Remove the covers from the top of the battery and check the acid level. If the level is low add distilled water. Put the battery on charge at low amperage for a few hours. If the battery does not hold the charge, you will have to replace it.

PS: If you disconnect the battery cables you will need to reset your radio. Honda provides a 5 digit code to reset. If you bought the car new it came via mail on a small card.

Yes that could happen. You should get this checked with out running the engine as you could do damage and cost you big time. If the check engine light flashes Do not even try to start it up as this is telling you something serious is wrong.

Clicking sound but engine won't start

This actually does sound like the battery is low on charge. A battery which is quite low on charge will still light the headlights and run many other electrical accessories, but will not engage the starter (which requires much more power than other accessories).
I would start by making sure that an electrical device, such as interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light or something else has not been left on. Then carefully jump start the engine. It is also possible that the battery might need to be replaced for not holding a charge.

Engine wont start All interior and exterior lights come on clicking noise heard under the hood Radio still works

Check all of your fuses then make sure that you are getting 12 volts from the battery. If starter is making a grinding noise, it sounds as if it is not getting enough voltage. If it is and makes a whirring noise, it may be the starter itself. Hope this helps.
