#85 of 119 Re: FINALLY a TSB on the rear differential issue! [dewaltdakota]

Honda has finally issued a TSB on the rear differential issue:
Applies to: 2007 CR-V – From VIN JHLRE4...7C000001 thru JHLRE4...7C035374
So somehow, all of the dealer talk of just a handful of units affected, ended up being over 35k of them.
okay, took me awhile to check on this. I think I may have missed the posting. But it looks like my VIN # falls just past this so hopefully we are okay. I have not noticed anything with my car. And usually I am not a daily driver. However, since we bought in the spring and all the year end activities with the kids and daily summer swim lessons, I have been driving way more than usual so I would think I'd have seen something by now.
#86 of 119 can anyone help with this starting issue

It happened AGAIN. Honda already replaced the starter and something with the gear shifter he thought it might be, and they reprogrammed the keys. This is getting ridiculous for a brand new vehicle. I am so tired of this turning the key and dead...turn again and it starts right up. It did it 2x 2 weeks ago and now today did it again. This has been AFTER they supposedly fixed it. If I could just know what it is so they can fix it once and for all. I already paid the vehicle off and I don't want to trade in for another car and lose money. This is not right.

Air bag light. Here is how my light works. If I start the car, and nothing is in the seat, it is lit for a brief period of time(OFF), then it goes out. If I put an object on the seat, and it is under the pound rating, it comes on.
If the object is over the pound limit it doesn't come on. So it senses any weight and comes on if there is any weight on the seat below the weight of the small child, it stays on. At least that's what I've noticed. 2007 EXLx2.

I have the same vehicle as you..the airbag light is finally ok. But, today again..I get in car...turn the key...DEAD..turn again...starts up.
What is the killswitch in the vehicle..the service mgr said there is one in the CRV and you have to turn the key all the way to start it or it wont start? I do turn it all the way, but I am still having this problem intermittently where it wont start on the first turn of the key

When you say it won't start on the first turn of the key, do you mean the engine won't even turnover or that it turns but doesn't start?
This may have nothing to do with your problem, but my 2007 CR-V will not start as quickly as my previous car ('98 Accord). When I do a quick turn of the key, it doesn't start. When I hold it a second longer it starts without a problem.
Is the starter motor a little underpowered? Possibly. It doesn't seem to turn the engine over as fast as other cars I've owned. Maybe they wanted to save a little weight or money.
Now that I've adjusted to the difference, it starts fine. Good luck.

When I turn the key..the engine does not even attempt to turnover..it is just DEAD...then I turn the key back and try again and it starts right up. What makes me nervous, is the other poster who had this problem and then one day it just did not start at all and she had to get towed.

How soon? is the recall.

There is no recall. This thread was started, regarding the rear differential issue on 2007 CR-V's. Honda has since issued a TSB, which covers the affected vehicles.

Is there one site that provides all the Honda Service Bulletins for a certain model and year? For example, 2007 CR-V? For the Toyota TSBs, I found all of them at TundraSolutions.com but every site I see for Honda, either don't list any of them or just a few.
I am thinking about buying a 2007 Honda CR-V but don't want to until I see the known issues....I wish I would have done this same thing before buying my 2007 Camry XLE V6!!
I would REALLY appreciate your feedback!
