#18 of 23 2002 Honda CRV high speed power loss
Aug 02, 2011 (8:59 am)
When we travel on the interstate at 60+ mph we sometimes experience a loss of power. The car keeps running but does slow down. It seems if we keep it below 60 mph we don't see the problem. This happens intermittently. If we fill the gas tank up and put dry gas in it 'sometimes' will solve the problem. Recently it did not. I don't think its a water in the gas issue because we've run multiple tanks of gas thru the tank now and about 4-6 dry gas containers. I hate to take it to a dealer because I feel they will throw parts at it and not resolve the problem (I had this experience with my blazer for a power loss issue). If you have any insight on this problem I'd love to get your input. Thanks, Mike

Finally, my problem was resolved today.(atleast according to the dealer who fixed it today).
The first clue is the symptom I got from this URL: http://www.visualimpressions.ca/switch/
Yes, the ignition switch recall that was performed on my suv in 2002. The same thing cropped up again. I called Honda, and they advised me to take to the dealer. They performed the same recall replacement for free. When i walked in, they gave an invoice for $190, but after conforming that the recall was the same, they didn't charge me anything. I had to wait for 4 hours at the dealership, that was the only loss.
Here is the detail:
CAUSE: IGNITION SWITCH FAIL, NEEDS NEW
725108 SAFETY RECALL:
1 35130-S10-A01 Switch, steering
193862 Recall confirmed problem, removed and replaced ignition switch(Electrical)

Believe it or not I've fixed this problem and it was a cheap fix. I had noticed when the problem occurred when the gas tank reach 1/2 full and I took off the gas cap there was a large rush of air entering the tank. So I figured I buy a new Honda gas cap and install it. So for $36 the new gas cap seems to have fixed this problem. Whew!

We've had pretty good reliability with our 2002 CR-V. We bought it used in 2004 from Honda so it was checked out pretty well. Good luck in your search.

I have seen the thread here for this problem -- has any one solved this permanently?
I, too, have this problem, spent over $600 and I have the problem again. They are saying it will be another $800 to replace the CC.
