1991 Acura Integra

A great car--but when the car starts it won't rotate. Llights, horn, etc. work. Is it the battery?

Be more specific.
Choose the correct symptom: 1) Total silence when key is turned; 1) Clicks when key is turned and no other sound; 2) Chugga-chugga-chugga but no cough or other sign that it wants to fire; 3) Chugga-chugga-cough-chugga-cough-cough-chugga-chugga.
If #1 or #2, turn dome light on. Now turn key to START. What happens to the dome light while you have the key turned to START?

If you're getting 2 and 3, the dome light tells you nothing.
Check for spark. Are you getting a nice fat blue-white spark? http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/startproblems.html#checkspark

then it is NOT "starting". "rotate" is "cranking","starting" is when it fires up and runs.
