My battery will not start if I stop the car for a short

My battery will not...

My battery will not start if I stop the car for a short period of time. Honda is telling me that if I stop and turn off the motor I have to open the drivers door to really shut everything down

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

No corrosion. It’s a 2016 crv

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

I don’t do my work. My battery has died twice this month both times when I stopped for a few min. Are they right about having to open drivers door to shut down

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

Fro reading reviews sounds to me like this is an on going issue with crv’s

Ask Your Own Honda Question

honda has found that a software bug in the VSA system may be keeping it awake when the ignition is turned to OFF. This can cause a 350 mA parasitic draw that may result in a weak or dead battery. also found that this issue appears to happen only when a certain shut down procedure is done, and it's rare when it does. this parasitic draw can be avoided by setting the electric parking brake before turning the igntion to OFF. they are still looking into it so im sure when they find it the will recall it thank you

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!!!!
