hi peeps , got a 1999 cr-v stick shift with a no starting problem , and wanted to pick peoples brains on likely faults ok has been fine uptill one day i stopped at a set of traffic lights and it just stopped running , got a tow back to home done some investigation but before wripping the car apart totally this is what i have found , spark is good , cam belt newish and not slipped , no fuel going to injectors , checked the fuel pump in the tank and in car does not work , removed tested off car and works fine , so i would say problem either fuel pump relay (as fuse is ok) ecu or wiring fault ? anyone got an idea on most likely cause ?
thanks in advance
Log into Honda Owners link on Honda's main website. Enter your VIN number and see if the Ignition Switch Recall has been performed on the vehicle. If not, then scehdule an appointment at your Honda dealer to perform the ignition switch replacement, it is free to you.
If the switch replacement has been performed, then try other suggestions, such as tracing if the pump is getting voltage.

Would a K&N air filter be a good purchase if I wanted a little more power in a 2002 CRV?
K&N may be good for high RPM driving, such as above 5000 RPM, when the thorttle plate is not the major obstacle for the air.
Be warned that K&N filter allos more fine particulates into the engine. So, if you are planning on keeping the vehicle for a long time, K&N is not your friend.

I had a situation (not Honda) where the fuel pump would not shut off without pulling the fuse. Turned out to be a shorted oil pressure switch. Maybe check for opens?

The 2007/2008 models use a foot brake, just to the left of the main brake pedal. Press it down to set it, and press it again, to release.

A challenge. 2002 CR-V, purchased new in December '01. Can anyone beat this amount of money on brakes?
16000km (10000 miles) Machine rear rotors and replace pads - no/charge
66000km (41000 m) Replace rear pads and rotors. Machine front rotors - $592CAD
97000km (60000 m) Replaced front & rear pads. Machine f & r rotors - $160CAD
135000km (84000 m) Front calipers seized, and who knows what else?
Honda Dealer Estimate - $1700CAD
My wife and I are retired, in our mid-sixties, and drive carefully. (We already did the MGB and Sunbeam Rapier thingy in our youth).
Do I own a LEMON?

My '02 CR-V..
At 90K miles, dealer says pads have 10-15% left... all rotors are okay...
Now: 94K miles.. Getting pads replaced at next service (95K). Estimate at dealer is $300 for all four wheels (parts+labor).
I don't know if you own a lemon... and, I'm not sure what salt/ice your car is subject to (garaged?).. But, for $1700, I'd shop around..

Brilliant car but I get a terrible noise coming from the front of the vehicle when I turn the steering to full lock - On both sides.
I have checked the power steering resevoir and that looks fine. Have checked the drive shafts and they look fine - Any Ideas ????

Thanks for the response. I live in Ontario and we get lots of ice, snow and salt. The car lives outside. I can't believe that you got 95k miles on one set of pads! That's gotta be a record. I suspect your CR-V is a MT? Mine is AT 4WD, so I have to use the brakes to slow down.
I still think it's a lemon, though...

Have you ever had the brakes cleaned and lubed, (calipers, sliders, etc.) after the winters? Driving on heavily salted roads can easily cause corrosion on the calipers and other brake parts to freeze them up and cause premature failure.
Not a lemon, but maybe not enough preventative maintenance.

My 2003 CRV is making a groaning noise when you turn the wheel onto full lock (both sides) - what is an rdf ?
How do I rectify it ?
