Customer Question
It wont start....

It wont start. I have just fitted a new battery and the engine cranks but does not fire

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

I have just added a gallon of fuel as the fuel level was low, I haven't yet checked the plugs. The car has been stand a couple of months but was fine when parked up

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2001 CRV 2.0l Petrol

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?

At first I assumed the battery had died while being parked. The first attempt to start had the engine catch and die. Then the battery was flat. As it was old I bought a new battery assuming that all it would need was to swap them over

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am seeing a green flashing light with a key symbol, which I am not sure of it's significance. I am concerned in case this is a possible cause of the car not starting

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?

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

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

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!!!!
