Welcome to JustAnswer.

Most dealerships won't attempt any repair without first duplicating the customer's concern. I understand how you must feel going back so many times. There are 2 common problems I have seen on your generation of CR-V. The least common of the two is a bad gear position switch. Since it started after you put it in neutral this is a possibility. It may have just been coincidental but still is a possibility. The most common problem by far is a bad starter. I have replaced more than I can remember for your exact problem. The starter design is different than most so when it fails there will sometimes be no noise at all. Most starters will at least click once each time the key is turned to start. Unfortunately the only way to be sure is testing while it won't start. In situations like this there is really no solution without duplicating the problem or taking a chance replacing parts.
