Do you have a remote door lock? Try clicking your doors open and closed. You can turn the key to the start position three times and re-set the security that way on some Acura/Hondas. My son has had to turn the key to the start position and change the position of the Automatic gear shifter - back and forth. I think it has something to do with the Neutral/Park safety switch on his '93 Legend.
Make sure the ground wire is good. The security and starting circuits depend on a ground wire going to the engine from the battery/transmission area. It may be loose or not getting good contact.
Honda/Acura has kept the old fashion battery post type batteries. Always wire brush the inside of the cable connections and the battery posts.

1997 Honda Accord, 4 cyl, auto trans. When I turn


The starter sit on top I belive on the passenger side above the transmission, have some one hold the key to start while you tap or even hit the starter some time it will crank over if it does replace it, not that big of a job. If it still dont start there a big wire that one comes from the battery and a small one that come from you ignition switch ( key ) jump those two wire's ( if stander transmission make sure you have it out of gear ) there should be voltage at big wire all the time, if it still dont crank over replace starter assembly.Hope this was very helpful.

1997 accord won't turn over. Will turn over with a remote starter switch. Test light does not come on on the solenoid when key turned. did not see any blown fuses. Thanks John


it may be the contacts on the ignition switch, at the back of the ignition switch using a jumper wire touch the white wire to the white with black together, if the starter cranks it is probibly the contacts on the switch, or if your car is manual transmission you might have to press the clutch switch, this could also be the problem
