Question about Honda Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2016 Honda Rancher that I have installed a Triangle ATV snorkel kit on and am having cranking problems.

Since installation of the kit, the Rancher is difficult to crank, especially when the ambient temperature rises above about 80 degrees. I have to push the starter and let the motor turn over and over and over and eventually it seems to crank over enough to start. Then it idles very rough or doesn't want to idle at all and just dies. If the weather is cool, I just hit the starter button once and it cranks right up. I followed all installation instructions and went back and double checked all the hoses, one way valves and connections.

Replace the PVC valve, it's probably clogged.

SOURCE: Difficult starting in warm weather

Check the vacuum hose attached to the fuel pressure regulator under the hood next to your intake pull it off and see if any fuel is present, if there is replace may have to tap hose with your finger to get any fuel out or start vehicle run until hot then shut off and recheck if no fuel present in vacuum line let me know and we can try something else.

No how long should battery last in Honda hrv 2016. Car won't start in cold weather.

Sounds like your battery. Not enough cca cold cranking amps. Some people put in cheap battery which last about 2 years a good battery can last 5 years. Go to autozone or similar and have battery tested.

2007 420 Rancher ES. Why is it stuck in 3rd gear and seems to be flashing a code of 12?

Most transmissions go into a fail safe mode to prevent damage to transmission but you can still damage it if you keep driving it. Most related codes are due to speed sensors. But you will have to look up what the code means exactly.

I have a 2010 Honda rancher 420, 4 wheel drive, fuel injected, straight axle. It won't crank in neutral and up. Instead, it cranks in reverse, and reverse only. The neutral light won't even come on. What...

Get a wiring diagram, possibly online, and trace the neutral position switch and cable. My guess is there is something loose or needs some TLC.

Your problem sounds like a loose wire connection. Going by your description, I would reccomend you start looking at the wiring at the front. Good Luck
