Honda CR-V Will Not Start

My friends Honda CR-V (2005 I believe) will not start. The lights come on so the battery seems to be ok. The fuel pump makes a noise when the key is first turned on so that seems to be ok. The engine does not turn over. Just nothing except the fuel pump. Everything has been working fine lately. Thanks

Yes, definitely check the wiring to the BAT terminal of the starter, check for an open or bad ground in the starter. The latter has to be done with the engine cranking.

Your problem is a little different. It sounds like a fuel delivery problem.
Check for a weak fuel pump (fuel pressure and fuel volume tests)
Check for a faulty fuel pressure regulator.
Check for a restricted fuel filter. (usually also a lack of power)
Check for a faulty fuel pump check valve.

Although I haven't heard of it happening so soon, it sounds to me like it's a bad starter. If the car is under warranty, I would recommend the dealer. If not, I would start with the starter, alternator, and then the spark plugs. It's just a little hard to tell without hearing what sounds it IS making.

My 2005 honda cr-v is in park the light is on but will not crankover has a new battery but if mover the shifter to neutal it will start what could it be?

It means that the Parking position Shifter does not giving signal to ignition and by pushing the shifter even more and then you start ok it shows the problem you have.Therefore ask a qualified mechanic to adjust the shifter position in order to avoid this problem.

98 crv won't start

Check compression and timing belt. If belt is ok and you have compression, check to see if you have a pulse at the injectors. You use a device called a NOID light (basically a light bulb that plugs into the injector plug. Unplug the injectors one by one and plug the light in then crank the engine. Light should blink on and off if the system is working properly. If not check for a bad crank sensor, blown injector fuse and wiring harness. Hope this helps.

Car slow to start in the morning, will start after

If it is cranking intermittently then there are lots of items to check. First is your battery in good health? Five years old is old in car life for batteries. Does it have the correct battery? Is the water in the battery at a correct level? Are the connections very clean and tight. Does the engine block have a strong ground connection. Is your starter OK? Starting relay good?
I once had a Camry that gave me fits with intermittent starting. I attached an indicator light in the cab, that was connected directly to the starter solenoid. When you turn the key the light would come on. Finally one time when it did not start but the light was ON then the problem was in the starter! It was in the soleniod, bad, charred connections. Intermittent problem are the worst! Good luck.
