If it happens again make sure the gear selector is fully in park and if that does not work put vehicle in neutral and try to starts that is if vehicle is an automatic.

I have that problem. My car is manual. It wont crank at all. I used the hammer to pound the start lightly. I had someone's SUV to push my car while I do the clutch thing to start. None of them worked.

My 2003 Honda doing same thing (not starting now and then). After reading all kinds of 2003 Honda's with same problem I'm going with Eric the auto guy who shows how he figured out what was wrong, it's the starter switch, not the starter! Then he takes apart the starter switch and shows where it's burned out. Dealership had my car for 4 hours and couldn't figure out what was wrong!

I have been having the same issues and i have a 2006 honda accord. I just replaced the battery but that wasnt the issue. You may want to replace the starter because that is most likely where the problem is coming from.
