You disconnected the battery. You didn't have the key in the ignition when you connected the new battery!
Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

SOURCE: No crank, no start, new battery

I've ha the same problem on my 95 civic. Changed the starter, a relay, checked the ignition switch, distributor... and found it was a faulty ground from engine to engine compartment. To check this last solution, simply attach a wire big enough between the engine and chassis and turn the ignition key. If the car starts, you've found your problem!

Hope this can help.

The contacts in the starter motor solenoid are worn, the clicking that you can hear is the solenoid being pulled in, but not making contact to allow the main battery voltage/current from getting to the starter motor. Their are 2 things you can do to get you out of trouble.

Rock the car back and forward whilst in gear, stop and try again.

Tap the side of the starter motor cover with a piece of wood or soft hammer. This will wiggle the contacts and allow for starting.

These may get the car up and running, but ultimately the contacts will have to be replace.

If you can find the starter motor, the solenoid is the small round or triangle box on top or to the side f the starter motor, usually with two small wires going to it.

2003 honda accord lx cranks but wont start new battery starter fuel pump son drove it about a mile then drove home next day cranks but wont start


You must perform an engine control module fault code test as well as test the fuel pressure, if no codes are present and fuel pressure is ok check for a defective camshaft drive belt.

2003 accord 4cylinder wont start doesnt turn the battery is good


check battery connections, if they are good check the power supply from the battery to starter motor (thick cable), if this is good have someone crank it while you check the signal wire to the starter motor(thin wire), if this is good replace the starter motor. u could tap the starter motor with a hammer if accessible while someone is cranking it, sometimes this will get the starter going again but will still need replacing

Check the starter motor. Many times they go on there own with no sign, and having someone crank it while using something to tap it often helps it turn over.

You need to make sure the solenoid wire isn't making contact with the starter wire. Be sure you don't have the purple wire making contact with the red wire.

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay !

1993 Honda accord, the battery is good but when i try to start it it wont turn over. The alternator is good and all my fuses are good, why wont it turn over? Should i get a new starter?


To begin with, turning over means different things to different people.
Does the engine crank but not start, or not crank at all ?
If it cranks but does not start, Honda cars are known to have weak fuel pump relays which would need to be tested.

Try smacking the starter with a blunt object ( hammer or something ) Smack it several times while cranking. It may free up. Listen for the click at the starter. Its prabably a bad starter. Common symptom your describing. If it does start replace the starter.

96 HONDA ACCORD WONT START


have you chkd the + pos. connection from the battery to the starter?this could be loose and not giving the starter enuff power to turn the car over,or..if you do get a "click" when you try to start it then it could be silonoid on starter(it has two wires on it and most of the time it is connected to the starter however some cars have them on the side of the engine compartment,those types you can replace without replacing starter as well) if you had corrosion on the pos. terminal and wires it may have corrosion in the wire you cant see,i have seen that a few times.clean or replace the wires that have corrosion in them and try to start it, if no start just the click,try the other option i gave you...
hope this helps you out!!!
