Default 2006 honda civic won't start?

my 2006 honda civic sat for about 7 months while i was out of the state. someone was supposed to start it periodically but the battery still died. he tried to jump start it and used a charger but it didn't work. once i got back in town i replaced the battery and the lights and radio works but when i turn to start the engine nothing happens, no noises or anything. i thought maybe it was a fuse but i changed a couple and that didn't do it. i would prefer to fix it myself but i can't figure out what is wrong.

ok, after 2 long bike rides to the auto store, i'm pretty sure it's not a fuse cause i've changed just about all of them. i guess it's onto the starter next.

any advice?

since the lights and radio work it's most likely not a fuse.if the car was jump started with the cables connected backwards it would blow the main battery fuse,but you would have no power to the lights or is most likely the starter.if it is a manual transmission try to push start it,if it's an automatic get a flashlight and look under the intake manifold and find the starter.have someone with a long screwdriver tap on the starter while you hold the key in the start position.condensation can rust the stator and rotor inside the starter making it not get a connection.good luck.

If the jumper cables were hooked up backwards, damage could have occurred to the electrical system. You will need someone familiar with electricity to check the fuses, and system more thoroughly. There should be no reason for a car not to start, after 7 months. Some cars have an in line fuse on the starter wire. If this is bad, it will have to be cut out and replaced with one of the correct amperage. If your starter is controlled by the computer, then the computer could be bad. Do you have a security system on your car? If you do, then you may just need to reset it. Good luck.

Check your main fuse, should be by the drivers knees underneath the dash. once my uncle jump start my sisters civic, but wouldnt crank at all, replaced battery same thing but has power to everything. turned out it was the main fuse. it blows after jump starting your battery ( if done wrong but i seen my uncle and he did it %100 right).

It could only be only a bad starter or a loose wiring of your starter to the battery. Hope this help!
