Hi, I have a 2013 CRV, never had an issue till a few days ago. Went to start the car, all the dashboard warning lights came on and car wouldn't start. Tried it a few times, took key out, put it back in and eventually it started. This has now happened several times.
Got the AA out yesterday as it happened again. He checked everything, battery is fine and nothing obvious. Neither keys work, have changed battery in the keys too. He just kept trying to start it and eventually it did start. He seemed to think it is something to do with the signal going from the ignition to the computer that tells the car to start. He suggested taking it to Honda but advised it may be hard for them to find the problem due to it being intermittent and said they would have to wait for a time when it wouldn't start and it could take days!!
Anyone have any ideas or had anything similar? It is a 2L 4x4 model.
Reluctant to use it as I don't want to get stranded anywhere!

Thanks

When it's no start, does the starter turn at all. One tell tale is to crank with the headlights on. If they don't dim, it's not engaging the circuit. If they go way dim, something mechanical could be binding or the starter is weak.
