Have you ever had the main relay replaced or repaired on this car? Try the steps listed at
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/startproblems.html#mainrelay
to help confirm whether it is the main relay or not.
Word is if you smack the lower dashboard near your left knee (about where the relay is located), then this will allow an electrical connection to be made, allowing the car to start.
It's bad solder joints in the main relay that cause it to faill

go to tegger.com, read the section on getting the ecu codes, then report back once you've got them from your car.

Probably needs a good mixture. Try starting fluid.

How do you know? What did you do to test for all three?

If it 'quit running' are you saying you were moving at the time and it died? If it 'failed to start' that's a different story. If you ever find it spins but doesn't start after sitting overnight / weekend, just read the Owner's Manual and follow the procedure for 'flooded engine'. Hold the pedal to the floor and crank it for up to 15 seconds at a time. It will start with a puff of black smoke and will run poorly for several seconds. Then run a can of Techron injector cleaner thru it OR a couple tanks of Gasohol to clean up the sticking injector. It happened to my Odyssey and I never had the sense to READ THE OWNER'S MANUAL.
