Question about 1997 Honda CR-V

'97 Honda CR-V wont start after hitting a speed bump

I was driving my CR-V at around 80km/h and I accidentally hit a big speed bump I couldn't see. The car turned off instantly, and then it just wont start again. Any thoughts? Someone told me there is a sensor that when it detects an accident, it blocks the fuel flow to the engine. Is that true? What can i do about it?

    Thank you for your help, any info will be appreciated! I`ve heard Ford has that security system too.

     What do you mean by "check for spark"? The electrical system is good I think. When I turn the key, I get the same sound and the car does the same it always does, everything but finally starting. Its not like when the battery is dead or disconnected. Thank you!

    Problem solved. There is a button, on the left part of the console on the passenders side. Pushed it, canceled the blocking, and it started. Thank you very much for trying to help.

Car wont start no sound starts with a jump but dies shortly afterwards

Check connections to alternator; if everything is tightly connected then have it tested. You should also have battery tested as the car may have been running directly off it.

Have 97 gmc suburban. Has a jerk to it when I'm crusein on highway and from time to time seems as if im hitting a bunch of little bumps an it boggs down. I let off gas it stops what could this b?

Could be the fuel filter. Watch the speed it happens. IE.. Ok at 50 MPH, hit 60 MPH it starts jerking. Clogged filers will give the pressure need, just not the volume of fuel need at higher speeds.

My 2009 Honda CRV just started vibrating this morning driving to work on the highway. Is there a problem?

Something is causing the vibrating, which is not normal. Need more info-at what speed does it occur, vibrating in steering wheel, or ? What type of climate where you are (driving through something that sticks to the tires can cause vibrating, like road tar). Has anyone else driven the car recently? Could they (or anyone)have hit a large pot hole, curb, minor accident? All these scenarios could cause what you describe. If something was hit as listed, you would need to have the wheel alignment checked, and also suspension components for any damage.
