I set out to a nearby restaurant a couple hours earlier to pick dinner on a what had been a rainy day.
On returning to my 2013 Honda Accord I pushed the brake and hit the push to start button... it just clicked but did not start. The electronics on the dash all lit up as did the radio and my cell phone (charging cable connected)

I tried putting the car in neutral and starting afters, I tried using the fob over the push to start button. i tried starting it by pressing different zones of the PTS button but nothing worked.

After two hours of trying I got an uber home with my car still in the parking of the restaurant

I managed to get a video showing one of my last attempts before i got back home:

I was hoping for advice on whats the best course of actions.
From all the online reads it seems to be a recurring issue in the 2013 Accords.
Do I take it to any decent nearby repair shop or does it go to the dealership. I fear a huge price gouge at the dealership with them pointing to the starter and saying it will need $1000 to fix

I do not have extended warranty on the car, regular warranty expired last summer. The only service I can avail is AAA.

Any advice on what the fix could be or what my best yet economical options are would be most welcome!


quick additions:

the fob battery is fine since i could lock the door from afar,
the car battery is the same from 2018 but the electronics and internal lights etc turn on with no issue/dimness
