Default 93 accord no crank no start. plz help

my 93 accord lx 5spd. wont crank
I got in my car to go home from work and turned the key, it seemed like the battery was dead because when i turned the key the lights came on, but very dim. I tried to crank it and all i heard was a click and a buzz from under the dash. I tried a couple more times and the same thing. So I figured id push start it. i messed it up and it started and died. but then i had a friend push me some more, and i heard a click then the lights came on full brightness like they should. and i figured Id crank it to see if it would start. it did, now i drove it home and it wont crank at all. It acts like a dead battery but the battery is fine.
I have no idea whats wrong, any help would be appreciated.

Also. It makes the same clicking noise when i try to crank it, as if i did not push the clutch in. and then a buzz from the click. theres something under the dash that makes the click. and the buzz. i think its a relay.

It sounds like a voltage issue. You say the battery is fine, guess you had it tested someplace. Check all of the cable connections, both ends (bat and the other end) to be sure they are clean and tight.
The buzz and click, I'm pretty sure that is coming from the main realy-coming from the left drivers side.
Check the cables, also be sure that the battery was tested fully. A volt meter telling you it has 12.5 v, isn't the same as putting a load on it and testing.

check at the starter and make sure there is battery voltage there all the time and at the relay wire when they key is on . You could have bad starter .

Sounds like the starter. One click, no crank is usually the starter unless there is a loose or bad connection. Make sure battery terminals are clean & tight. Check the power wire to the starter for the same. Have a friend tap the starter & see if it cranks at the sametime as you turning the key to start. Keep turning the key as he taps. If it cranks after that I'd say starter but you can always take it out & have it tested too.

I am back to the battery and connections...had this exact same click and buzz last night, changed t-belt and stuff this weekend-95 EX 4 cyl. I test drove the car after the work. Parked it, turned on the ac to run the cooling fans to cool the engine to double check everything. 30 min later I went to start it, click...buzz. Charged battery for 30 min, tightened cables...cranks right up.
