Starting issue with 2009 CRV


When you brought the crv in for service, did you tell them about this problem? If not, TELL THEM NOW!! Keep a log of when this happens (day, time, description of what happens). You need to keep track of this and let the dealer know about the problem now, before the warranty expires. The log of info when having trouble will help them diagnose the problem, and it is MUCH better to have a detailed list than to say, 'oh, it happens sometimes'. So bring the crv back to dealer for another appointment, explain the trouble, and keep on bringing it back until the problem is fixed. This could be a problem with the starter. When you turn the key to start, a gear in the starter advances on a shaft, meshing with the flywheel, and then it cranks the engine over to start the vehicle. It sounds from your description, that the gear is not always advancing on the shaft all the way to the flywheel every time (the gear will just spin quickly, as there would be no resistance because it is not turning the engine over) and the gear will spin quickly, sort of sounding like the engine is turning over fast, when actually it's just the gear spinning. The grinding sound could be the gear clashing (not meshing smoothly) with the flywheel. You definitely have a problem, so don't stop complaining to the dealer until it's fixed.

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.

Are they clicking sounds that have turned to grinding? If so, check your CV joints.
