If crank but no start, check fuel and fire. If no crank, check neutral safety/clutch switch.

Or, if you live in a colder climate, you may need a larger battery. My 2001 has recently decided it doesn't want to start in the morning... (I live in WI, every vehicle I've owned has done it)

check for fuel and spark. Our cb7 distributors like to go bad.

My wife's care experienced the same problem and the same year and make. Found out the accord's have a problem with the MASTER RELAY switch. It is located directly under the dashboard and right by the steering wheel shaft. When it started to go out it would start in cold weather but not in hot weather and it gave all the symptoms of fuel pump problems. When fixed it cost 23 dollars and she replaced it herself because my hands where to big to fit up in there without having to take the whole dashboard out.

The wiring around the battery and distributor become brittle and prone to breakage or exposure. Check wiring for bad spots that the battery installation could of jarred.
