  1. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    With a brand new battery, On the first start of the day, CRV cranks very slowly like the battery is almost dead. After the first start, it always starts exuberantly and normally. Charging system is charging normally. Again, this is with a brand new battery. Three batteries all tested and...
  2. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello. Well I was hoping to get a 2019 CRV EX model but based on the OD and battery issues, I wonder if it's worth the risk? Is there a site that tells you the number of CRV sales vs the number of cars with these issues and what Honda is really doing to address these issues OR at this point, is...
  3. Diesel CR-V
    I took my car ( CRV diesel 2.2 2007 £175k) into the garage when it was having problems turning cover, was taking 3-4 turns. Diagnosed as needing new glow plugs.. had these changed however the car would then not start. Since I have been told needed new Pressure valve, replaced still not working...
  4. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    So I recently replaced the distributor on my crv. Had some misfires occasionally beforehand even after wires and plugs. So after replacement it will not start. I have spark on all 4 wires and can smell gas. What could I be missing?
  5. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    HI all My first post so here it goes: I love my 2018 CRV Ex-L but was wondering on the remote start. I have to be within 100' of it to start it remotely. Has anyone done anything to increase the Honda Standard FOB, or if you added something to do it? I see there are a few options I see from a...
  6. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I may have posted this problem before (within two -four months) but I cannot find it. When I start the car there is almost every time a loud grinding/rattling noise. It lasts for a few seconds most of the time then disappears. Sometimes it lasts while I drive a few hundred feet, then stops, I...
  7. Shopping & Test Driving
    So it's been decided, the Odyssey though we love it, certain things are just too expensive to keep fighting with. AKA the power sliding doors. Plus problems with door jam switches and random little crap. Powertrain is amazing and never a hiccup. Not to mention fast as hell for a minivan...
  8. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have no ignition lights indicators or reversing lights and engine is not starting. it turns over but will not start. I have checked all the fuses in both the engine compartment and under the dash and they all appear fine. The indicators and reverse lights will not work although all other...
  9. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Sometimes the car car takes a while to start. Normally it turns over a few times and fires right up. And at times it will start fine for days on end. Got me baffled. No lights showing on dash. It has 170,000km. I think it has the original o2s sensor. Mechanic tells me they either work of...

  11. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    After work today, I went to start my 2017 CRV for the journey home. When I pressed the start button, the car cranked for a solid 5-10 seconds before it actually started. When I got home, I turned off the car and restarted it. The car restarted normally. As I wouldn't be able to replicate this...

    Request any unusual service tips on slow cranking while trying to start vehicle battery, starter tested well within specs initially, charged battery, cleaned cables, retried to start, engine turned slowly, then started. Possible bad area on starter? Thanks, Tim

  14. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello My 2002 crv has perplexed many mechanics. Here is my story Since Oct 2017 I have been dealing with this issue. My car as a cold start has never been a problem. If I run for 30-60 minutes and shut down the car won't start for about 30 minutes. After about 30 minutes it will start rough...
  15. Diesel CR-V
    Hi, I have seen all the posts on here and so far the solutions mentioned haven’t worked. The issue is that the engine just won’t start and shows no sign of starting despite the starter turning the engine over (if that’s the correct phrase) ie it’s not a battery or cranking problem. What is...

    On 4/18 I went to start CRV, would crank but not start. Tried 3 times and then just got the clicking. Waited 5 minutes started fine. I had no more problems. On 4/20 I replaced the battery, just to be safe. I have had no more issues until today. Again went to start, all it did was crank about 3...
  18. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    5 months ago I purchased a new battery because I would have to jump start 2013 CRV every morning. Recently I have had to start doing the same again, but battery test good at 4 different places. Any ideas what this issue could be? Thanks in advance!!! hkpga
  19. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Disconnected battery during 2 month vacation (mistake), when I returned I connected battery and car started OK, ran it for a while and noticed the radio wasn't working. I guess I punched the wrong keys to reset radio (bought car last OCT and it came with no radio code form). When I tried to...
  20. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I get this screeching noise sometimes when starting. Almost like a belt but all are snug and in good condition. I am suspecting that it is in the starter. Are these starters prone to having bearings fail in these cars? It is probably original and still has the factory honda label on it...
