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 with my old mustang. Just wondering if there is a check for solenoid vs starter that I might try to determine what is at fault. Looked at new starters and I don't even see a solenoid with it so I'm not sure if this is now electronic and all in one or if there is a separate solenoid. Any input would be welcome
Thanks
Dave

Welcome to the forum! Was anything done before this happened? I assume that this is an Automatic. Try to shift it into neutral when it won't start in Park. See if she starts. Usually these Starters won't give you a click when the solenoid goes bad. These are reduction type starters.

It wont make a clicking sound when the solenoid is bad.

Thanks for responding. All I did was change the air filter. Will try the neutral thing though. What will that indicate if it starts in neutral? Some other switch faulty? Thought i did something w air filter change but only disconnect I made was the air filter sensor. It would not start after the change but did a few minutes later. I mistakenly thought that had something to do with it. Today after driving a bit and turning off the car it failed to start three separate times but did after waiting a few minutes. We only have the one car and I'm going to take it to the dealer tomorow. Just dont understand why they have to charge so much for parts; 500 for remanufactured and 350 for labor. Expensive but would rather have it done with some guarantees assuming the starter is the problem.

If it starts all the time in Neutral. It's the safety neutral switch that is going bad. How many miles on the odometer? If you would like to cut the cost. You can go to an Independent Honda Specialist. If so, get a good Remanufactured Honda starter. If the starter is bad. Be sure to have them verify if its the starter. These starters are underneath the Intake manifold as I recall. Most likely you have disconnected the Intake air temp sensor. It should not affect the starter. If you did not plug that sensor back in. It will only trigger a check engine light. It could just be a coincidence that the starting problem started when you replaced the filter. No pun intended. Let me know how it turned out.

Welcome to the forum! Have you checked the relay? The last time I had this happen it was in my old '91 Civic Wagon. Turned out it was the relay. It was getting hot. Burn your fingers hot.

That is exactly what happened when one of our '09 starters quit here. Only, when it finally died completely and wouldn't start at all, it was in the dead of winter on one of the coldest nights of the year, so I had to get it on a flatbed to the dealer so they could replace it. Same symptom though. Warm engine. Turn the key, nothing happened. Wait a minute and try again, and it would start right up.

The starter on my other '09 was cranking more slowly over time--I changed it two months after the first '09's starter went bad. Cranks much faster now. I may change the starter on our TSX for the same reason--it's even older with more mileage and seems to crank slower than it should. These just wear out over time.

It can be changed from underneath on an '09, so it should be possible on the '10 also. Some go to the bother of removing the intake, which isn't necessary. (Even the Honda service manual shows taking it out from underneath.) There is an Eric The Car Guy video on YouTube where he changes the starter on an Element from underneath--same basic K-series engine, similar vehicle. The rear bolt is a long hex shape, which makes it easier to work with from the back end of the starter. Tip--when reinstalling the starter, lightly tape that bolt in place to the side of the starter, lined up in the hole and ready to go. That saves fumbling around trying to get it started in the threads. There is not much room to swing the starter around to remove it once it is loose, and be careful of the wires, especially the oil pressure sensor.

Brought the car to Honda dealer and took a number of tries before it failed to start. Once it did they verified it to be the starter. $950 later all good. Told them $500 for a starter was ridiculous but was not able to do the work myself and didn't Want some unknown garage to put in a poor quality starter. Got home and my radio required an "enter code" input. Called back to the dealer and ask for the code and was told I had to go back to the dealership as they would not provide the code over the phone. That was really irritating. A simple call to Honda got me the code. Thank you for responding and your help

At least when the dealer repairs it, the repair should have a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty, good at any Honda dealer in the country. Hang onto the receipt! Our repair for our one '09 was about the same price. My DIY cost for the other '09 was for a remanufactured Denso starter, and it works fine.

k24 have 2 ways to replace the starter. From the top is easier but you have to replace the gasket on intake. The othe way is from button but its a lil bit harder to take out the inner bolt (long bolt) and really tight to pull it out.
Thanks for the great advice!
It turns out the battery is new as if 12/19, so could it be the alternator or voltage regulator?
Here's a little more detail on the procedure:
- The light that flashes is the Auto High Beam green icon, just to the right of the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) icons on the driver's display.
View attachment 137009
  • For the procedure to work, the ignition must be ON (engine doesn't have to be running) and the headlight switch must be in AUTO. Make sure you don't blind any nearby traffic as the headlights are on high beam while the stalk is pulled.
  • When you pull the stalk toward you, the icon will first flash once after 30 sec. Continue to hold until the icon flashes twice (about 40 sec), then release. This disables the auto high beam.
  • Pull the stalk again until the icon flashes once (about 30 sec), then release. This re-enables the auto high beam.
I never really replied on here.. but nothing bad happened at all with my son's transmission-with that piece of plastic falling in there... it was like he never dropped that in it at all ! 4 plus years later and all is good !
Hello, Our 2016 cr-v upper screen and left side of steering wheel buttons went dead. I tried to find the post but couldn't so I just wanted to create this post say Thank You whoever shared pulling Fuse #29. I pulled it, the fuse was not blown, so I put it back and pressed down the others while in there. I was pleasantly surprised that when I opened the drivers door, the center screen was on. It went through some diagnostic for a minute or two but everything appears to be back in normal working order. If anyone ever has the dead screen and buttons, give pulling Fuse #29 (under the hood fuse box) and hopefully that will fix yours too.
So it's an exhaust leak between the exhaust manifold and the catalytic converter
and make sure you use Honda water to wash your CRV...regular water will cause it to disintegrate.
Clutch and bearing are changed, everything good
what is a jump pack? And no I am not using a relay harness. The hid kit was the same wattage as the stocklights so I didn’t think it would be an issue.
