hi I'm A long time lurker but a first time poster , I'm currently having a problem with my 2003 k24 crv and its got me scratching my head , I hopped into the car one day and the car turned over but it would not start at all , So I checked all the fuses and battery terminals and tried again but my ignition lock barrel jammed in the process and I had to send the lock away to be rebuilt, so when I got it back I reinstalled the ignition barrel and I had the same problem again ,it turned over but wouldn't fire , so I called an auto electrician and he suggested it might be a crank angle sensor, so I ordered one and installed it yet it still wont run , He also checked the coils and they aren't making any spark either ,I also checked the plugs and they seem clean if a little bit white tho but I doubt that matters since I got no spark, I checked my relays in the engine bay and glove box and they all seem to be clicking and working fine however I have noticed that when I try to start the car I don't see the green key symbol on the dash and that makes me believe it could be a immobilizer related problem but I'm really not sure, Any and all advice would be appreciated because I would love to get back to driving this cool little 4x4. thanks

Do you have another key to try? Try to put the key in the ON position without starting the engine. see if you have the green key symbol. When you installed the lock barrel did you removed the battery terminal?

I only have the one key and yes Iv tried putting to on position many many times and it never shows up not even for a second, The car's battery was flat when I installed the lock barrel could that of caused a problem? another thing I forgot to mention was the fuel pump primes so I'm pretty sure that's not an issue.

You might have triggered the anti-theft or immobilizer. You should have removed the battery terminal. But its done. You might need to do a hard reset. It might work.

How would I go about doing a hard reset? I't sounds like this could be the problem.

Another thing worth noting Is I scanned my car with my obd2 reader and it isn't showing any error codes.

Sorry for the late reply. Life is so busy. The immobilizer error will not show up on the OBD2 scanner. Remove both battery terminals. Without touching the battery posts, ONLY the 2 main Terminals touch them together for 1 minute. Be sure you do this properly. If you want to be safe you can take out the battery temporarily. I hope this helps. Let me know.

I'm thinking that this might be the problem because I disconnected the green plug and white plug near the immobilizer and key slot, and the car behaved exactly the same ie no green key light and it just turning over without starting.

+MyHonda is on the right track. It could be the Immobiliser has to be reprogrammed. Or another possibility that the chip on the key has gone bad. You can try to ask the dealer to make you another chipped key. Are you the original owner? If so, the new key with the chip might work. If you're not the original owner. The key in the mechanical cylinder lock might be different.
