Default 1996 accord lx wont start!

hello, everyone!
my accord wont start! it wont turn over. the stereo and lights all
work. thought it was the battery at first so i replaced it this
weekend. tried to start it and got nothing. CHECK ENGINE light was on
for a while and there was a knocking noise on the driver side of the
engine which stopped whenever the car stopped or was left to idle
before it "met its maker". please help!

Do you get a click, or nothing at all when you turn the key?

Check both ends of both battery cables.Check ECU ground at thermostat
housing, check engine ground from valve cover to rad support.

Get the code read. AutoZone or PartSource will do it for free.

Wait a sec - if it can be driven to AutoZone, would he still need to get the
code read? lol

D'oh!

In that case, if the OP can't get the beast running, he'll have to buy
or borrow an OBD-II tester. You can get those fairly inexpensively these
days.

If no CRANK,it's probably a worn starter solenoid.

Can it be push-started?
Does it CRANK,and then not RUN,or you turn the key and nothing happens,no
clicks?

someone here mentioned it might be a bad starter. not the 1st time i
heard ppl told me that since my whip croaked. that might be the
problem... which leads this mechanically-challenged car owner to a new
challenge: HOW DO I GET TO THE SOLENOID? it's like buried in there?
and if i get to it, THEN what?

First,buy a service manual.
Helms is recommended,but a Haynes is better than nothing.Haynes should be
about $20 USD.,at most auto stores like PepBoys,Autozone,....

You WILL have to pull the starter off the motor.Perhaps from underneath.
