Did this happen right after the accident?

There is a switch attached to the hood latch that may be disconnected or faulty.

Where is that can you send me a picture?

I will try to do that for you.

i think that might be a problem
because car locks and lights flash. it doesn't beep.
Expert:  Steve replied 1 year ago.

That does sound like it because if a door, hatch or hood is left open it will not beep on the second push of the button.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I made sure they were all closed. Do you think accident may have damaged something in the door?
Expert:  Steve replied 1 year ago.

Anything is possible but I would first check and make sure the hood latch switch is plugged in.

If you just got the CR-V back from the body shop you might want to let them know. I would also tell your insurance company.

how do hyou check it to see if its plugged in?
Expert:  Steve replied 1 year ago.

In the link I posted is a picture that shows there should be a connector plugged into the latch.

You need to see if it is there. You may have to remove a plastic panel to get to it.

Here is the link again as a PDF. file.
