2006 Honda CRV likes to randomly not start. Been about 2.5

Customer Question
2006 Honda CRV likes to...
2006 Honda CRV likes to randomly not start. Been about 2.5 months. Had the starter replaced last Saturday, then today it doesn't start. About 6 years ago my original key would not turn in the ingnition. The dealership replaced that and gave me a valey key to start the car. What could be wrong?

Thank you for taking time to ask your question on JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** online handle is Honda-Man I will be assisting you.

So when it won't start what does the starter do and sound like? Do the lights dim or just no crank?

No crank or sound, all lights come on and the the seat belt beeps at me. Battery was replaced about a month or so ago.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can turn the key and nothing happens.

Thanks, ***** ***** recall hearing a small click from under the dash? It is the relay for the starter.

No clicking sound.
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

OK, are you willing to test the starter solenoid circuit? It would require a test light at least or a voltmeter. This would make sure the starter is OK or you got another bad one(very common).

None of which I have right now. I could later today.
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Good this way we can make sure instead of an educated guess. I will send you some instructions. Probably be about 15-20 min.

Thank you. Can you email them to me?

I did read about the Valet key I have to start the car can wear out over time and won't work right? Can that be the case too? Or something like that?
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

I could but that is a premium service. It would cost a little extra to share email address.

No worries.
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 1 year ago

OK I will get the instructions ready. Is the valet key turning the lock? Does it turn al the way to the start position?

Does the green immobilizer "key" light flash when it won't start?

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!!!!
