By "no power" do you mean no lights, ignition, starter etc or the system is not charging? Need more info to help.

You may have a blown fuse in your electrical wiring to the alternator, probably near the battery.

Look for a fuse wire off the positive pole of the battery. It looks like an ordinary wire but it is actually a fuse. You can by-pass it with a regular wire (12-14ga) long enough to check it. If power comes on with jumper then buy a new battery cable. DO NOT KEEP JUMPER ON. Keep me posted please.

There will not be a fusible link to the battery, but rather a maxi fuse near the battery. Honda stopped using fusible links in the mid 90's..

Didn't realize that. My last Honda was a 92. Glad you corrected me.

I'm having the same problem with my 2004 Honda Accord no power when I turn my key
