Question about Honda CR-V

1 Answer

2008 Honda CRV 2.2 diesel parked at Gatwick airport for 13 days. Battery completely flat on return! I am in no doubt that the battery was fully charged when left and I know that nothing was left on (other than the alarm which cannot be disengaged). Dealer has checked battery and normal background usage and has said there he can find no problem. I maintain that you should be able to leave a car for 3 or even 4 weeks without problems so I don't understand what has happened here (I am also annoyed at my dealers lack of interest in my problem - particularly given the amount of money paid for the car). Any ideas on what my problem might be? The only thing that I can think of is that the alarm is overly sensitive and that it was going off frequently. Richard S

According to the 2008 Honda CRV 2.2 DIESEL.
First turn off all known loads
Disconnect one terminalof the battery and connect an ammeter in series. That willtell you if amps. are flowing. 1 amps. flattens a battery in two days as most batteries are 50 amp hour.
If current is smaller it takes longer.
So 1/10 amp = 20 days, it is quite possible the security system is the problem.
Solution a solar charger that provide an amp. in a window that sees the sun when you park.

These solutions take times so do not forget to charge me.

Will there be something to complete in Gatwick airport at the center of the night time


Effectively Weatherspoons is available till 23, MacDonald's and 00 is closed from 01,00 to 02,00. If you have got one, a support perhaps and so I'd deliver a mp3-player to a great book or two. When travailing is i convey a pare of comfortable footwear to alter into when i arrive at an airport but a good thing i often do. coz you wont consider how the feet may hurt following a few hours along with your shoes on therefore it is a whole lot more soothing in order to walk-around.

98 honda crv wil start if jump started and then later won't start


Your battery is not fully charged and may not be accepting a full charge. Remove your battery and put it on a charger overnight. Take the battery to a parts store and have them hook it up. They will then be able to tell if it is taking a full charge or not. If this is a new battery it will take a full charge but it is still getting drained by something such as a radio not shutting off automatically, if you have that option.

not really, except unhook the battery. there are several things constantly running all the time. 'clock,computer, etc. eventially, the battery will drain. then again, your battery may be weak. an auto parts store will test it for free.

2003 f250 diesel 6.0 hard start when cold, idles rough and dies. runs great once warmed up. Battery light is on but volts are 13.? Not sure if the 2 problems are connected or not


It sounds like your preheat system is not working properly on the cold startup. Haynes has a Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330 that will help you correctly diagnose and repair.
Battery volts at 13 is good but a fully charged battery should be close to 14.2. It would be a good idea to get the alternator output checked and a load test done on the batteries.
Hope this helps.

Car does not start.


Yes, I would have the battery fully charged and load tested. Most local parts stores can test it for you. Takes a hour or so.

Needs a battery, or you have a draw pulling it low.

Honda crv 2002 wont start


Either your battery cables are loose, or dirty, or you forgot to turn something off, and your battery is dead.
