Default 1993 Honda Accord (AT, 4-cyl) won't start?

OK, never had this prob before. Everything powers up fine (ie, windows, lights,etc.), but no turn over or anything. Just a one click/tick noise by the main relay. (And yes, it's in park...and there are no flashing lights on the dash). Any suggestions (other than i need a new car, duh/lol) would be much precciated!

First verify the "run" position of the ignition switch works - if the warning lights come on that is working. Because the main relay clicks once I expect that switch contact is working.

In a stock 1993 Accord there is nothing but the neutral safety switch and wiring between the ignition switch and the solenoid. The output of the starter part of the switch also appears at fuse #9 (probably not shown as fuse #9 in the fuse box legend... I don't know why) of the fuse box in the left kick panel. That fuse is the 7.5 amp fuse, fourth from the left (counting the spare fuse) and third from the right in the top of the three rows of fuses. That fuse is required for actual starting but not to crank the engine. It is just a convenient place to check for voltage from the starter connection of the switch.

Of course, if an aftermarket alarm system was installed the black/white starter wire may have been intercepted to immobilize the car.
