Question about 1999 Honda CR-V
"I had not had a tune up on the car since 2000." you said. I think you are very lucky because the valves should be adjusted about every 40K, and the problem is that you will not have any hint that you are about to experience a very exspensive repair. The lifters are not hydrolic they are solid.

When I suggested "power supply", I meant power as regulated internally inside the clock. It has nothing to do with the tune up you mentioned.
The only theory I can come up with on your radar detector going off is relative to high voltage interference from old poorly insulated wires/ cap/ etc. Same thing that causes static on AM radio stations. Did the problem get worse after the tune-up? Did they actually change the wires? Honda OEM wires don't usually get changed on simple tune-ups (they are good wires). These are picky cars for this sort of thing, I usually only used OEM tune-up parts on Hondas. So, if your problem got worse after the tune up, then I'd suspect the after-market parts.
