Put new battery in car/nothing

Check you put all the leads back on the battery, has a lead broke at the battery, some vehicles have a fuse-able link at the battery, Sounds daft, is the new battery charged? should have a volts reading of at least 12.6 volts. Check earth connections, battery to chassis.

Possibly head gasket failure (HGF), do you need to keep topping it up with coolant? Are there any traces of oil in the coolant? Is there a mayonnaise like substance in the oil filler cap? If all of the above, then almost definitely head gasket failure.
If so, get the new multi layered steel gasket kit (available on ebay at a reasonable price), it includes the through bolts holding the engine together. Oil will need flushing, coolant will need flushing, head will need pressure testing. Cooling system MUST be free of airlocks when refilled, or the same thing could happen again.

Temperature gauge is notoriously inaccurate, mine blew a hose last year, all coolant lost, temperature gauge still read normal! Fortunately had just picked up a new hose, so road side repair (thanks to AA) was possible with no further damage. The gauge only measures water temperature, so when there is a coolant loss, and there is no coolant at the temperature sensor level, it stays at normal!!! Daft or what?
If coolant loss is the problem due to HGF, also try to get a new header bottle with a coolant level sensor, this will let you know when you suffer a coolant loss as soon as it happens.

Where is the coolant temperature sensor on a 1999 honda crv?

Good Day
the ECT sensor is located on the cyl head near the coolant outlet, so if you are looking at the eng from the front of the car stand in the middle you will see the rad put your left hand on the rad then with your hand on the rad(left side) move your hand towards the back of the eng approx 6" the ECT will be around that area:
if you are replacing the ECT after putting the new ECT in warm the eng until the coolant fan turns on and off twice.
I hope this helps
