Spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if it tries to start. If it does then the injectors are not firing or you dont have enough pressure on the fuel rail due to a bad regulator or a marginal pump. Check the fuel pressure if you can.

If you have the 4 cylinder engine, the fuel pressure should be 47 to 54 psi with the engine off and the pump running (cycle the ignition switch on and off several times to build up the pressure to max). If the engine were running the pressure should be 38 to 46 psi.
FYI, Honda doesnt have a standard fuel pressure connector, you have to remove the pulstation damper and connect the pressure gage in its place.
The fuel pressure regulator may be bad and leaking fuel into the vacuum hose. Pull off the hose and see if its full of gas.
