Can you hear your fuel pump priming when you turn the key on?

I know it sounds weird, but check the air intake. This happened to my buddy's Civic.. You need fuel, AIR, and fire to start it up. His intake was pinched at the end leading to the fuel pump so no air got to the fuel and it was just flooding the engine. Long shot, I know. But it doesn't hurt to check.

Sounds like a wiring problem if you aren't hearing anything at all and you replaced your alternator and battery.

Check your battery posts and cable terminals for corrosion, make sure the cables are tightened down enough onto the battery posts. Clean up any corrosion you might see anywhere. Also, make sure everything is grounded to good clean metal.

Also, take a look at your starter motor, and make sure all the wiring is in order and it is grounded to good metal. The starter has some very small wires that are easily overlooked.
