Hello, I will try my best to help you with your concern.

does the red light come on the fob when you press the buttons?

Is this a key you normally use ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it does and yes I only have one key and fob
Expert:  HONDASERVICE7791 replied 1 year ago.

and when you try to start the vehicle it will turn over but not start and run?

have you had the battery replaced recently? the vehicle battery?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The key will turn to the start position Ned the lights come on dash but it will not turn over at all

ok thanks for the information

it sounds like you have two separate issues here

  1. the key fob some how has lost its program. It happens, not very often but it happens
  2. the starter is faulty or it is a wiring issue

first we need to solve the no start issue. are you going to try to diagnose this yourself?
