Question about 1997 Honda CR-V

2 Answers

1997 Honda CRV - Engine just dies while driving down the road.

While driving down the road the engine just quits, lights at night stay on but engine has cut out. I've had the battery checked, alternator, starter and it still does it. I've seen on the internet where 1997 Hondas had a recurring issue with ignition switch. Could this be the problem?

    I own the same model and experienced this problem as well while driving in a busy urban area,most disconcerting and potentially dangerous.I had a new ignition switch fitted ,issue solved!

I had that same problem a while ago. I changed the coil and the ignition and I have had no problems since. Give that a try and see if it works. I have a 1997 honda crv myself and it seemed to work.

1997 Honda CRV temperature gauge spikes to Hot


You have to thank the Gauge that shuts down your engine when hot bec. it wont knock...you have to clean your radiator and see if the coolant inside it run through the radiator holes to the engine water jacket to make sure your engine will not over heat...For the fans, find the fan relay...it's under the hood in the fuse box...

I will be driving down the road and the check engine light comes on and the engine stops running i let it sit for 10-15 minutes and it starts again


What model and year honda do you have? If it's an accord, 90-93, take a look at your distributor by checking for spark, when the engine dies. If no spark, it's usually a bad distributor on those year accords.
