  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My friend just had a new starter installed on his 2008 Honda CRV (2WD) and this is the only sound that can be heard when we turn the key to start the engine. (see video). Just before the new starter was installed the serpentine belt had snapped and was replaced along with the alternator which...

    Hey everyone just joined here with a bit of an issue I'm having with my car. So about two weeks ago a mechanic exchanged our starter because it was making a weird ignition sound, he got rid of that but when we brought it home the D light started flashing and the car would start shifting hard...

    Dear all, I have a 2011 CRV SE which has about 87K miles on it. Recently I had two incidents when I started the engine, it would struggle a little bit, then maybe take me 2 to 3 times to turn the key in order to start the engine. After I fully charged the battery, it seems to be OK now, but I'm...

    Hello All, Having a problem with my 2010 with regard to starting. The CRV starts fine but after running and then turning the car off it won't start. No click, nothing. If I wait a few minutes it starts fine. I am suspecting the starter, but to be honest I haven't changed one since my HS days...

    Hello, I own a 2006 Honda CRV. Went to the store this morning, no problems, driving fine as usual. But when I went to go get my meds I’m getting nothing. When I turn the key, no click, crank, no anything. Only thing that happens is the “brake” light comes on. Looked online and couldn’t fine...
  6. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I think my '08 CR-V starter is going bad. It has 136K miles and on the original starter. When the engine has cooled down or in the morning, it starts just fine, but as the engine gets hot after driving, the starter would not crank or sometime very weak, like the battery is out of juice. I have...

    Hello, I have a Canadian made 2015 Honda CR-V which I was having intermittent starting problems. It would only click and after several attepts it would start. Eventually it will only click and will not start. I changed the battery becaue a load test indicated it was slightly weak. Now, I would...
  8. Trading Post
    Well I bought an 06 SE and loved it. Bought all the weather tech goodies and promptly totaled the CR-V. so I am selling the whole package of interior liners, the hood deflector and a cabin and engine air filter. All in tan color and all new or like new having used them for less than 4 months...
  9. Problems & Issues
    Hi, I am sharing what happened to my 98 CR-V with a no-crank starter condition. I checked the ignition circuit, all fine. I checked voltage and continuity to the starter, all fine. What I found out was that I had to measure the voltage drop. Do a 'Voltage drop' search on youtube. I finally...
  10. Problems & Issues
    Some months ago, I started to get the buzzing while starting issue, along with intermittent silent/no start problems. Seemed to be more prevalent when the car was in a hot climate, i.e. when my wife took it to FL for a family visit, it acted up multiple times per day. At home in OH over the...
  11. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hearing a grinding noise on a cold start on a 2012 Honda Crv. Have a new battery. Is there an easy fix?
  12. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I thought somewhere I read that the EXL is already wired for remote starter they just didn't include the transmitter. Is this correct? I see you can buy transmitter online $300. so if I buy transmitter then it will work? or do I still have to take to dealer for setup?
  13. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    The starter in my 2007 CR-V needs to be replaced. The dealer quoted me a price of around $900. $523 for the part and $350 for labor (plus tax and misc. charges). Can anyone verify if this cost is accurate or not? They offered an after market part for about $150 less, but not worth it to me...
  14. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I have a 2015 CRV with 52,000 miles. I had to replace the battery about 4 months ago which is rather soon, but seems to be a common problem due to undersized batteries, but just yesterday had to replace the starter, which is very troubling. I love my CRV, but am worried about having these type...
  15. Problems & Issues
    Folks, Have an 09 CR-V LX. bought it used 6 months ago. Within about 3 months, started to have a periodic issue when starting it. Just get that fast clicking noise. All lights, etc panel gauges, etc are ok. Typically it starts fine on the second try. Didn't happend ever time, maybe only...
  16. Problems & Issues
    So I've got one of those issues where my alarm started going off on its own. I tried spritzing the sensor with both brake fluid cleaner and electrical cleaner. Both times, the problem went away, but returned within a week or so. I then disconnected the sensor feed outright. I understand that the...
  17. Problems & Issues
    I am replacing the starter motor after it failed on me, and noticed that I have easy access to the knock sensor. However, I don't have any codes/CEL indicating it's bad. It's just 14 years old and has 177K miles. Should I consider preventative maintenance while I have access or leave it alone...
  18. Problems & Issues
    As per the service manual you do not need to remove the intake manifold to replace the starter. The trick is to have the right sized extension on a shallow socket and to not only disconnect the Knock Sensor but remove it from the block. I used a shallow 1" and 1/16 socket and a flex headed...
  19. Problems & Issues
    Ever since I bought a used 2007 Honda CRV back in 2015 I had to replace the starter 4 times. I've had to replace it about 1 to 2 times a year. This is not normal. I have a feeling the starter failure is not the root cause. Does anyone have any ideas what would cause the starter to fail in a...
  20. Problems & Issues
    New starter is in but I am curious if anyone on the forum knows/has access to torque specs for the intake manifold, etc.
