Default how to get my 1994 honda accord to work again?

i had an accident with my car and busted my oil pan. I have been told that the engine is not damaged since is cranking but not just firing up and its not making a knocking sound. The problem is that its not starting. i was told that when the plugs were taken out they were soaked with gas so we dried them out and let the engine dry out for over eight hrs before trying again but still nothing. it just cranks but does not fire up and start. all the other mechanical and electrical part seems to be working fine. i was told that hondas have something like a swich that triggers off if the the car oil is low or out. is this true? and if it is how do i get to switch it back on? or what else could have happened when the oil went out. by the way i wasnt drivin when the oil drained out of the hole in the oil pan but the car was running idle at park then it went out. please help this is my run around car and i love it

Honda, usual accord do work. Actual, I always say Honda do rock!!!!!! But you accord do not rock. For sure Honda do last forever, but you accord have big problem. If no oil, big problem. Honda for sure have switch when oil low. Honda dealer show you how to switch back on. I hate to say, but you probable damage you Honda engine. For sure be big money to fix. Hopeful you do get it fix. Then for sure it do rock when fix.

First replace your oil pan and then change the oil. Make sure that all your fuses are good and that you are getting spark to the plugs. May be as simple as a blown fuse or you may need a new ditributor or coil.
