Question about 1999 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Where do I find a PCM for a 1999 Honda CRV. My check engine light goes on and has been scanned by mechanic 4 times. Nothing wrong with vehicle. When the light goes my vehicle is in 3rd gear. I have to manually go from 1st to second. It shifts fine and if I take the battery cable off for over an hour it works fine for a little while.

SOURCE: 92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.

First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

SOURCE: Check Engine code: P1751 D4 code:

Hello alex, You said " Key conditions I described like e.g. "cold engine" would probably eliminate conditions 4) and 5) or I cannot understand how PCM or hydraulic control can be affected by a cold engine?" O.K. One way a cold engine or lets say, "cold oil" can effect hydraulic controls is, cold oil is thicker oil and "old" cold oil is sticky. This can and does cause things to stick or work slow enough to seem inoperative (in the cold). Now if this was my car I would start by checking for loose or broken wires, at or going to any controls to the transmission. Also if you live in the north, Ice and road salt can corrode wire ends inside plugs. This is one way cold can effect your PCM or TCM is these plugs and or connections at these Control Mods. These controls need to have dielectric grease on the contact ends of the plugs. As this grease gets old it looses its ability to transmit electrical signals. Old grease turns orange to yellow, new grease is kind of a milky clear. The old grease is worse than no grease. So, check any wires / plugs to the transmission, looking for broken wires / corroded ends in the plugs. Clean the plugs of any old grease / dirt / corrosion. You may have a bad Shift solenoid valve or you need to change the transmission fluid and filter. This would be my first steps to fixing your problem. Check this and repost if you find all is well with your wiring and trans. fluid.

My honda crv wont start

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

What is the couse of check engine in my crv 1999 model

Check engine lights illuminate when there is an issue with the emissions system. Since there are a variety of problems that can become faulty, they give them numbers called "codes" in order for me to better assist you, you would need to get that code from the scan port by a local garage or mechanic with a tool for doing so.

We have a 1999 Honda CRV. The engine is on and now occassionally is blinking. We took the distributor module to Advance Auto and it was diagnosed as bad. We have changed the distributor module twice -...

Have someones with a scanner pull the codes from the PCM, this is why the engine light is on,it flashes because you have not fixed the problem. Get the codes and get back to me we'll go from there Thanks Ray PS Advance auto should have done this for free!!!!!!!!!!

I Have 105,000 on my CRV the check engine light came on, is that one of the normal intervals? Nothing seems wrong had service done at 100,000. thanks Iggy

100,000k is a typical mileage for timing belt replacement. Check with your mechanic that this was done and that the indicator relates to this.

Check Engine light....

there is a possibility of a short to the bulb... he is putting the scanner on it and clearing the code,,,,or he is just undoing the battery cable, making light go off for a bit, and then coming back on. Consider taking it to a different mechanic. but if ur check engine light is on, there is a reason its on, or a short to bulb
