Customer Question
I own a 2010 CRV-L...
I own a 2010 CRV-L. The car won't start: battery and oil lamp icons are lit. Radio and lights come on. I hear a slow click then nothing. My son thinks it's the starter. I did go through a flooded area a few nights ago, but had no problem until today. What can you advise. Thanks

Hi Cathy,

How much water did you drive through?

I've seen many engines that ingest water and then won't start.

Can your son inspect the airbox for high water entry please?

Maybe 18 to 24 inches
Mechanic for Honda: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Oh Cathy, that's a lot of water depth.

Is your son mechanically minded?

Can he inspect the engine airbox internals for water please?

Hope the engine hasn't "drowned".

Let's hope it is an electrical, and not mechanical issue.

Talk soon.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
