If the dash lights are nice and bright while the engine sounds laborious when it's cranking the most likely problem is a failing starter. I have been servicing only Honda/Acura vehicles for nearly 10 years so I know the brand well. We replace lots of starters on this engine for the same problems you are having. I will include a picture of the starer location for you. It is tucked under the intake manifold so it's a bit tricky to get to and replace. I am very confident that replacing the starter will fix this issue. Again, as long as the dash lights are nice and bright while you are trying to start the engine, and the battery has been tested replacing the starter is your next step. If you have any additional questions about this just let me know. Thanks!
