check your alternator(charges battery which may have died), spark plugs may be dead, cables lining may be corroded or destroyed altogethor, occasionally the car had a bump and the crash cutoff to the engine is tripped (thats in the back behind the tailights just need to flick it up) but only if you hit a big bump fast,

check for fire and fuel.if you are getting both, you have limitless possibilities.you should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on for 2 seconds to pressure up when you turn your key on. it is not very loud so you will need to be quiet and listen carefully. if you hear it, then you will need help checking for spark. pull a plug wire and test it. IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE, FIND SOMEONE THAT HAS! the voltage can knock you on your a$$.good luck

Need more information...Will the car spin over, but won't start.. If yes, then the most common failure on Honda & Acura's is the power main relay., causing the car to appear to not be firing and also you will have no fuel delivery..Need more information to help you..
