Sounds like a short; check all the wiring around the ignition and back to the coil.

Its your fuse check your fusebox for a red 10 fuse should say ECMB or something similar to that go to your nearest autozone and buy a replacement fuse or just buy fuses and replace them all.

Have you tried jumping the car yet? What have you tried so far? I would get someone to jump it real quick. Theres other ways to see if battery is dead but a quick way is to get a jump then tell us what happens. Good luck-

Turn key and just a loud click starter not turning but I noticed when key is in start position all power seems to go out dash lights radieo dome everything goes out until key is returned to run pos.


Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

Recently bought a 99 CR-V. Had it tuned up and fixed almost everything. Runs very smoothly. One remaining problem is engine going dead while driving or just won't start after parking. Dash lights flicker...


Old post.
same here, there is only 2 paths (besides wild $$$ guessing)
1: yes, do scan it, if the tool goes dead (comms down) the ECU lost 12vdc power. (the CEL goes dead to , just key on, if no power to ECU/PCM.
2: or diagnose the no start.

what is flicker?, the dash lights come on key on to tell you power is ok and all things running them thinks they are happy,
some cars have immobilzers, and it does flicker at IMMO mode.
blocking you.
be specific on lights. what lights to what.
the operators guide is free, and shows each light.

Check ALL Power and Ground connections coming off the Battery to circuit anchor points. Ignition and Services fuses for a Power supply. If all proves ok, then go to the Main Ignition control Relay and check the condition of the Pins and Recepticles. That is where your apparent problem may eventually be. But travel the initial route first, looking and feeling for Loose or Dirty connecting points.

The problem is a loose connection at your battery or the distribution block. This is normally the ground wire. Try tightening these connections and you should not have a problem. Or wiggle the wires.
