2002 Honda CR-V

Engine cuts out 3-4 times a day while driving. Honda garage have had car since March. They've tried 5 possibilities for the problem with no result. Ordered a car computer and finally replaced it yesterday. They drove it a couple of mile - everything O.K. Driving it out of the garage this morning, engine cut out!!
They have been in touch with Honda factories who have had no such complaints before and cannot help them.
Can you come up with some solution - PLEASE
Look forward to your response -

    same problem but not as frequent. Perhaps it will become more frequent with time. While driving the engine just stalls and the CRV glides to a stop. I put it in park and start it right back up and drive away. It has happened three times over the last month - - any idea if I have a ground coming loose, or an 02 sensor issue? can anyone help?

I worked at an all Honda Indy shop in Santa Fe, NM and saw this problem at least twice!

As I remember, the battery sits back against the firewall on an elevated tray passenger side.
First: Remove battery from car.
Second: Remove battery tray if possible.
Third: Locate empty space under battery tray. This is usually full of some organic matter like leaves, tree bits, you name it. It's just an accidental trap for junk.
Fourth: CLean out all foreign matter and locate the ground cable that is bolted to the body in the bottom of this space.
Fifth: Detach this ground cable, cleaning it and the attachment point. This was the bad ground connection that caused my customers' CRVs to stall at the oddest times. Cleaning out this space, and remaking a good ground connection there, depending on how corroded it is, cured this strange stalling symptom. Hope that's your deal! TaterTodd

    It's hard to find because it's hidden from view under the battery tray!

    Has this helped anyone? If so, please rate this solution. I fixed two CR-Vs that had this mysterious intermittent stalling by tracing the battery connections under the tray. Curious to know if anyone even looked there or tried this fix. Thanks, TT

2002 Honda CR-V stalls, mostly when the gas tank gets low (aka light on) but not only then. Engine will not stay on unless its constantly gassed, when I come to lights, I put it in neutral and gas it

water in fuel. put some water remover or gas line antifreeze in and keep tank full. the reason its worse after sitting is because the water sinks to bottom of tank and then the car is trying to run on just water. after driving it mixes with fuel

Yellow engine warning light and car has rough idle

to get trouble codes you must hook up a test tool called a scanner, this interfaces with the computer in the car and pulls the codes from the computers memory.

OK, you have a code PO341 which means their is a problem with the signal the ECU is receiving from the cam sensor. It does not necessarily mean the sensor is bad. It can be one of these things.
1. Cam sensor wiring routed too close to spark plug wiring (causing interference) 2. Poor wiring connection at cam sensor 3. Poor wiring connection at PCM 4. Bad cam sensor 5. Damaged reluctor wheel You replaced the cam sensor and the problem is still there so we can assume that a defective cam sensor was not the problem. Do this.
1. Check that the wiring isn't routed too close to any secondary ignition components (coil, spark plug wires, etc.) 2. Visually inspect the wiring at the sensor for any burn marks, discoloration indicative of melting or chafing 3. Visually inspect the reluctor wheel through the cam sensor port (if possible) for any missing teeth or any damage 4. If reluctor isn't visible from outside the engine, visual test can only be done by removing cam shaft or intake manifold (depending on engine design)

I have a 1999 Honda CRV. In the last week, we've had 100 degree days so I am running the air at top speed...I have noticed that when I am at a stop light or in line at a drive thru, and the car is idling,...

All automobiles do this. The output of the air conditioning compressor is directly proportional to the engine RPM. If your system is low on refrigerant this effect will be magnified. - H H McDonald
