What would keep my 1999 honda accord lx from starting if the ignition module, crank shaft sensor, coil, and the timing belt has been replaced and still can't get fire?

Another question, did you check for spark at coil wire? And yah, maybe they forgot to hook up a ground wire somewhere? And have you checked for power to spark critical parts?

Did you replace all those parts yourself of did you take it to one of those mechanics who just starts replacing things because he has no diagnostic skills whatsoever? And if you are doing it yourself I assume you checked for fault codes before you started replacing things. If there is an open or short in any of the sensors, including the crank angle sensor the ECU should throw out a fault code. If you get a code then you check the appropriate sensor and then you check the wiring to it for shorts or opens. Anyway if the problem occurred shortly after doing some engine work then I agree with the other guy that it might be a disconnected ground wire. Some cars have ground wires that connect to one of the valve cover bolts and if these were replaced someone could have forgotten to reconnect the ground wire. If that s not it then you need to start over from scratch and test all the components that are part of the ignition system as well as the wiring between them. This includes fuses and relays of course.

Well either your spark producing elements have a faulty condition or your spark triggering elements do. This fault can be as simple as no permission to fire.
