I had a similar problem with my 96 Acura TL. It ended up being the master ignition relay. I had to have it replaced. Wasn't that expensive, but I had to have it towed to the shop.

he is right while your cranking your engine check the tach to see if it is registering your engine turning it should crank at about 200 rpm... if it is picking that up then is your security light on?
