Detail: For the last few years, we have occasionally had trouble starting it. Recently we had to put a new fuse in the starter. The battery had to be replaced--we got credit because it was within the warranty time. Now it has a brand new battery, but it won't start again. When the key is in the ignition, the lights work, but the car won't start. When we got the new battery, the mechanic said it wasn't the starter. We don't know what to do. It has about 207,000 miles on it.

Good luck! , First you must check to see what missing. You must have spark at the pugs and gas at the injector for this car to start. See whats missing and get back to me. The 1995 Honda Accord has a history of bad distributor. If there is no spark at the spark plugs replace distributor . However on some models the coil is separate and not in the distributor, if so make sure the coil is working. , Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps. , Check the main relay-PGM-FI Main Relay, called a fuel injector relay(a gray little box with a plug at the end). To make sure it is a bad relay, do this: Turn the key to II, listen for a humming sound from behind you. It is a fuel pump working. You should hear a click under the dash after it. It is a main relay click . If you do not hear a click, you car will not start. If you do hear a click, you car will start. Fix is to take the relay out, resolder the joints and put it back in. Go on www. MarkLamond.co.uk and http://techauto.awardspace.com both sites will show you how to resolder the main relay and where it is located if it is the PGM-FI Main relay. , CALL YOUR LOCAL DEALER!! there is a interlock update on the car... try that first.. but the the sensor in the shift might be bad.. you can unplug it to check if that's the problem it's under the center councel ... if your looking down at the shifter it's on the left side you can actual reach your had undter the plastic on the driver side and unplug it (by the carpet) just take out the one or two screws on the side by the carpet and i think it's a single wire up along the left side of the shifter... , Try 'jiggling' the key while you hold it in the start position' this could be a failed ignition switch. It could also be that the + terminal on the starter or starter solenoid may be corroded. Since the battery was just replaced, those terminals are probably clean enough but check the negative cable where it attaches to the chassis or block. If the connection is flaky here, enough current can often pass to allow lower current devices to operate but drop too much voltage if the starter is trying to operate. Starters require 100-200 amperes, many times higher than anything else in our vehicles and show up cruddy connections pretty quick.
