Check the following;

1. battery

2. starter

3. fuel pump

4. fuel pump relay

5 loose battery cables and loose wiring in the starter

Hope this helps!

The prime suspect is the ignition switch. Although only the 1997s and up were recalled, the 1994s and later had bad switches (see source). My daughter's 1993 Accord has the original switch, my son's 1994 Acura had the same failure yours exhibits. The starter contacts had failed, so the warning lights came on (one of TeGGeR's very few errors) but the starter just sat there.

Not the main relay, which does not affect cranking. Not the battery, which has to be so low you'd notice the difference in the lighting before it stopped trying to crank (and not the alternator for the same reason), and not the starter, which (in Hondas of that vintage) nearly always clunk when you try a defective starter.
