The end of May the alternator and starter were replaced( I was hearing a grinding noise) ;( and yes the check engine light just came on. Just gave the car to my daughter so I had the car serviced to make sure it would be running well. Maintenance is done following the Owner's Manual recommendations.
I would read the codes for the check engine light and go from there, rather than guessing.
#112 of 119 rear differential problem question
Apr 11, 2010 (12:01 pm)
Did you owners of 07 and newer owners ever get your rear dif problems sorted?
My 05 made that sound but since learned it was due to the rear dual hydraulic pump dif oil having worn out. I replaced it and the grinding and chattering disappeared. Apparently the new oil allows the clutch plates to slip by each other without the grabbiness that old oil that has lost its viscosity caused.
So were there rear difs faulty from the factory or was it an oil problem?
And does anyone know which years have the airbag recall? That is what I was looking for when I first came to this thread.

Did you ever find out what was wrong with your Honda?
I have a 2008 CRV, and it's stereo lights have been flashing intermitently. Honda won't do anything until they actually see it happen. I've noticed it starts pretty badly sometimes. I know my warranty is almost up, and this is the 5th thing that's gone wrong with it.

I have a 2007 CRV with 26XXX miles on it. Same starting problem that has been going on and on. Sometimes it will go a long time with no problem but it did it yesterday. Turn the key to start it and nothing. Turn it off and try again and it starts. It's been to the dealer at least two times for this. Service writer asked if the lights lit up when that happened. Of course, yesterday I didn't notice. One time they took it in and tried over and over and it didn't do it. That's no solution - they will just waste time and wear out the starter. Anyone have a solution?
#115 of 119 2006 CRV ignition noise
Nov 08, 2011 (6:20 am)
Periodically when I turn the key to start the engine I hear a kind of a sizzling sound and nothing else. When I turn it off and then turn it back on again the engine starts. Someone else had this problem in the forum but I don't know if there was a reply. I can't take it to the mechanic because it only does it once in a while, but I'm afraid of being stranded one day. My car is still under extended warranty and I'd like to get it repaired before it expires. Would someone happen to know what this problem could be?

I'm not sure if you have the same problem as I had but I found out from another forum that if you start the engine slowly it will not start. Mine makes a zapping sound only. But if you turn the key fast from the second position the engine starts fine. Since I have been doing it this way my engine always starts, end of problem I hope.

#119 of 119 2007 CR-V Engine, Electrical Problems
Jun 17, 2012 (6:57 pm)
Hi. I live in the Caribbean so information sharing among owners isn't as cool as it appears to be on here. Kudos to you. Anyway, here's my story....
I bought a brand new 2007 CR-V (right hand drive) and months after buying it, I now know that the MICU Fuse Box faultered. The dealer here did not have the diagnostic tool at the time, so when they finally got it in 2011 (4 years after I bought it and 3 years out of warranty), I got the diagnosis and had to pay a lot of money to rectify that problem.
Recently, the vehicle developed engine problem but I think it was incorrectly diagnosed. One day I was driving and upon acceleration I heard what was a loud spinning flapping fan noise. I stopped immediately and after 5 months of agony from the dealer, I was slapped with a $13K bill to replace a cylinder head. I was told at that time that metal shavings were found in the Oil Pan and the dealer pointed to a faulted valve seat.
Last week, the vehicle developed the same exact noise but this time after pulling over, oil traces were seen on the road and more metal shavings in the Oil Pan. This time, one hole and a large crack was in the Oil Pan. And a huge chunk was missing off of the Oil Pump.
I have a feeling that this recent occurrence is related to the 2011 ordeal. I have a full blog of the chronological order of events relating to my jeep (with photos) and would really appreciate if anyone could read it and let me know your thoughts and suggestions for resolution. Here's my blog.
Let me know please. Thanks much.
