Don't mean to state the obvious but a gasoline combustion motor needs
two essential things; fuel , and spark. OK three if you count air. This
is the most basic angle to work from. Is the injector sending gas to the
motor? Is the spark plugs providing spark? Finally is air getting into the
intake?

It could be lots of different things so I won't attempt to provide you
with the entire list. Perhaps others will provide such a list.

It could cost you a lot of money if you start replacing items that could
be the source of the problem. Therefore, I advise you to have the vehicle
towed to the nearest Honda dealership or local mechanic that you trust.
The mechanic should be able to figure out what is wrong and fix the
problem. If you have an extended warranty--have it towed to a Honda
Dealership.

Grump,

Read what your manual says about how to test the dash lights.......
While you're watching your dash lights do their 'diagnostic', listen to
your fuel pump. If it runs for four or so seconds, try holding the gas
pedal to the floor and crank the engine for maybe ten seconds. You won't
hurt anything, and it just might start your engine. If this trick solves
your problem, you may have a leaky (stuck) injector which is flooding
the engine by letting the pressure out of the system by dribbling gas
into one cylinder over night.

A bottle of fuel injector cleaner and a long drive might solve the
problem. Can't comment on the 'flushing' methods used by some oil-change
places. (leery)

Check for spark.
