    Hello. I have a 2008 Crv and yesterday everything was working fine but when i started it today the battery indicator was on and the alternator is not charging at all. When the battery is idle it has 12.5v and when the car is on its 11.5v. I measured the voltage on all the terminals, the...
  2. Battery, Starter, Alternator & Related Issues
    I recently bought a 2017 CR-V. Though I haven't had any problems with it, I'm trying to be proactive about possible battery issues. From what I've read, if it still have the OEM battery, I should replace it ASAP with a better battery. So, how can I tell whether my battery is the original...

    Hello, I may need to leave my '22 CRV parked/stored for about 4 weeks while I'm away. (Will not have an option for someone to start it etc., so straight up parked) (I plan to change engine oil about a month before hand, due for 1st oil change, so it will have fresh engine oil while it sits) Do...

    I’m not sure when the last time the battery was changed and am not inclined to get stuck somewhere with a dead battery. Any recommendations on brand of car battery? Or is there a device that I can use to accurately test the life of a battery?

    Once upon a time, about three weeks ago... The story starts with your humble government employee being informed that she has to report to the office once a week since the Covid levels in our county had dropped below High. Dallas had been dry as a bone for months but just that night we had rain...

    Honda CRV won't start. Left side windows wont work. But right side windows work. Is this dead battery? I had similar issue a month back. I got it jump started and it had been working fine till today morning. I got my battery tested and it turned out to be in good condition. Any idea what's...

    This is my second time around owning a Honda. My first one was a brand new silver Accord back in 1989. I recently purchased a 2019 Crystal Black Pearl EX model. I am learning about the car through this forum. I'm interested in upgrading the battery as I live in AZ and batteries don't last...

    The locks work fine when manually locking / unlocking; pushing or pulling the pin, turning the key, etc. It's when I use the fob or the automatic lock / unlock from the ignition that it has intermittent issues. The lock pin won't fully go down when I lock the car remotely. I have to manually...

    Hi everyone, sorry in advance this is so lengthy. My CR-V with 168,000 miles will not start and my brother and I are having trouble narrowing down why. Our chief suspicion is the starter has failed bc battery and alternator seem fine, but there are some inconsistencies that have made us...

    Hey guys, Car won’t start. It won’t even try. So we had a historic blizzard last weekend in North Dakota. I was in the middle of a valve cover gasket job but needed a tool to pry the valve cover off so had to wait, I connected everything back together just left the top plastic covers off which I...

    Hello, I have a bit of a head-scratcher. My 2009 CRV EX-L is occasionally not starting. This first happened this weekend -- I had the car powered on, but not running for about 10 minutes. Then when I went back to start it, it slightly turned over, but wouldn't start. It cranked right up with...

  15. Battery, Starter, Alternator & Related Issues
    I bought my brand new 2015 Honda CRV from the dealer in November 2014. There have been incessant issues with the battery going dead - I am already on my 4th brand new battery - installed in October 2021, and already defunct. Clearly there is a parasitic drain. There are multiple law suits...

    As the title says, I am wondering if anyone out there can help me out with a recommended mechanic in the Salinas, CA area? Specifically, to diagnose/repair my 07 ex-l w/nav's battery light/now-dead battery? I know there are a variety of various issues that it could be, but I've got no real...

    Hey, I have a 2008 honda CRV, and recently (past two months), the battery light has been coming on when I am driving. I have replaced the alternator twice, I have a new battery install (tested to be in good condition as of yesterday), and the ELD is working fine. I did a voltage drop test from...
  18. Battery, Starter, Alternator & Related Issues
    I have been driving my car almost every day, and my battery read 11.98 earlier today when I measured it. Is this likely an indication that my battery is faulty or the system has parasitic draws on it? How often should I have to drive and to keep the battery fully charged for a CRV? What is a...

    Hey All, I am working on a 2008 honda CRV 4WD. I'm a bit stuck on this job I am currently working on. Two weeks ago, my alternator's diode and voltage regular tested negative. As a result, I changed the alternator to a new one. While driving after the job was done, my radio kept switches from...
