Default Turn key and nothing happens

Today when I got in my accord I out the key in the ignition and nothing happen, no lights, no dash, no turn over. I tok the key out and waited a few minutes and it started back up no problem. I figured it was just a fluke so I let it go until it happened again later in the afternoon. This time I tried many times before the care finally lit up and turned over. Any thoughts?

Can we at least know the year of the car? The more information the better.

Without that...check, clean and tighten all of the battery connections.

Ok, sorry for sounding blunt...I'm still with double checking the connections. Can you give more details to "checked the battery when it happened this morning". If the battery is good, voltage at the starter (big cable and the small one) are good then I'd go with the starter. So, check the voltage on those two...if you have power to the starter (both cables) and nothing happens, pull it, have it tested and replace if bad.

Youll also want to look for leaking fuel injectors, Faulty fuel pump where the fuel is not getting up to the fuel rail fast enuff, Fuel pump relay not working..I could go on and on..You need to get it started and then taken and have those thing tested.
