Default 1996 Acura 3.2TL Starts when it wants,

I am beginning to have problems when trying to start the car. I turn
the ignition and nothing. After several tries it starts. The battery
is fine, there are no warning lights. The worst was this morning when
it wouldn't start after several tries, many minutes later however it
did. Any ideas of the cause?

A shot in the dark: Perhaps reiteration of the early 90's notorious main
relay problem that haunted many Honda / Acura models? Symptoms were very
similar, but mainly in hot weather. I'd start by checking that you have
spark (when it is not starting) and listening for the hum of the fuel pump
as you turn the key to ON. It should come and go. If not, may be the relay.
