2016 HRV. Starting issues. Battery...
2016 HRV. Starting issues. Battery full charged. Does not start. Eventually it says 'Engine On' but nothing happens. Had to get it jumped. Took it to dealer. Battery fine. Happened again. Jiggled gear shift (automatic) around in Park and finally started.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If the dealer did not check for any codes set in all computers in your vehicle using a scan tool that can plug in and can read all computers this needs done.If any codes are set the codes set will help to diagnose and locate the fault here.I have seen issues with the shifter itself as it has a solenoid/sensor that sends a signal on what gear position it is in.If this sensor is sending a false signal this causes this fault as well as being able to jiggle the shifter to get it to start.I would have this checked into and tested if no codes are set to see if it needs replaced.

Let the dealer know the fault is occuring again and they may be able to work with you on the costs to re diagnose and repair.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

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!!!!
