Question about Honda Accord
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.

I have a 2009 Accord 4 cyl. with 10,000 miles. I am having difficulty starting the car occasionally. Dealer said there is nothing wrong with the car.

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.
