  1. Starter Heat Soak

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    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...

  4. 98 CR-V starter no crank

    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...
  5. Starter Cut Relay on 2009 LX/FWD/AT

    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...

  7. 2016 EXL Remote Starter?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    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?
  8. Starter Replacement Cost - Dealership?

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    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...
  9. Starter replacement in 2015 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    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...

  11. 2015 EX-L Hood Latch Sensor/Alarm/Remote Starter Question

    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...
  12. 2004 Starter Replaced - Should I Replace the Knock Sensor

    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...
  13. 2007 Starter Motor Replacement

    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...
  14. Replaced starter 4 times within the last 3 years

    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...

  16. 2003 Starter problem when cold

    2002-2004 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 2)
    Hope to get some help! I have a starter that turns well but makes a noise and it seem the bendix or solenoid is at fault. It does start and I have to swing it again and sometimes more attempts to get it to start. When the car is hot there is no problem, it starts perfectly. Got the brushes and...
  17. Starter Relay clicking. Engine will start most of the time but not always.

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey guys! My 2007 CRV with about 135k on it. The other day I heard slight ticks when I would start it. I thought I was hearing something or that it was nothing. Well today after work I tried to start it up and it just ticked/clicked rapidly and wouldn’t start. However all the electronics worked...
  18. Buzzing sound right before starter starts cranking.

    Maintenance and Service
    When I turn the key to crank the engine, I get a buzzing sound, right before the key gets to the point where the starter engages. Could it be the starter relay making this buzzing sound? Is this a known problem? Any advice would be helpful, before I dive into trying to fix this abnormal buzz.

  20. 2007 Starter replacement

    Maintenance and Service
    I just finished replacing the starter on my 2007 EX 4WD. This is a US car, just in case. I thought that I might share some of the things I learned. First off, it is not to bad replacing the starter from underneath the car as most might think. The main thing to know is the order of the removal...
