Did you hear a whine while driving home? Maybe your alternator crapped out and didn't charge the batteries, and it drained/died right when you got home.

There is a main fuse for the entire car in your engine bay fuse box (100A i think), it's a screw-in type. Check to see those aren't blown as well.

But the horn works?

No whining noise. The horn and rear brake lights work

alternator was changed 6 months ago
battery 2 years ago

tried jump starting the car that didn't work all the fuses are good only thing i can find online is the ignition switch might be broken

The ignition lock cylinder might need to be replaced then, you're right.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link other forums, but if you google "6th gen accord ignition switch" there's a hit on a popular honda tech site with a very good DIY.

Hope that saves you a bit of money. Unfortunately if you need the part right away you're going to have to bend over for the dealership

Ign sw. and ign lock cyl are two different things. It's usually the ign sw. that goes.

Check the main fuse, under the hood. Also, try jiggling the key while you're turning it on.

Older Accord but same priciples should apply:

Also give this a read:

Is it possible that it blew cause jumpers were installed incorrectly?

Before you start buying and replacing parts diagnose first. The harness for the ignition switch could have just come unplugged or many other possibilities.
