My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing
Every now and then I would have to turn the key more than once. Recently the battery was corroded, but I cleaned the posts. It was running fine and none of the indicator lights came on. Last night I drove only 1/2 mile to the store, when I came out, it wouldnt start even with a jump. When I turn the key, the dash and other lights come on even the stereo. But the motor wont turn over at all.

IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

Yes it can be; or it could be that the battery is dead (or bad).
Disconnect the cables, clean the battery terminals, clean the inside of the cable ends. Connect a battery charger, let it charge for at least an hour (don't just use jumper cables from another car). Once charged try it. If you still get nothing, it could be that the battery is shot. In that case, replace it.

OK is the tapping when turning the key, if so battery is to low to turn over the engine, many things can cause a dead battery. 1) bad alternator if bad your car is a power wheel and the battery will need a charge every time you drive a long distance. the battery is made to start the car once started the alternator runs the car and charges the battery. Crude alternator test, jump car to start once running pull pos. battery cable if car keeps running alternator is OK DO NOT RECONNECT CABLE, TURN OFF CAR FIRST 2) any equipment left on while car sits drawing power like stereo amps etc. 3) corroded and loose cables on the battery (clean and lube)
The battery terminal connections is loose or corroded. Battery faulty or discharged, if the cable are clean and tight on the battery turn the key to the ON position and switch the headlights or windshield wipers. If they won't run then the battery is discharged. Broken, loose or disconnected wires in the starting circuit. Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. Starter solenoid faulty, Starter motor faulty, Ignition switch faulty.
try starting in neutral and see if it helps. Could be a bad starter solenoid or corroded battery cables at battery. Clean the connections at the battery including the 2 small ones on the positive post.
Just disconnect the clamps at the battery teminals. Clean the battery post of dirt deposits, as well as the battery clamps. After the cleaning job, reconnect the clamps tightly back at the battery terminals. Now you can test your car, by turning the key. It should start unless the battery is discharged.
