My Honda Cr-V Stalled and Won't Start
Jumping your battery will charge it. (closeup of jump leads image by Katrina Miller from

The Honda CR-V is a mid-sized SUV. If your Honda CR-V has stalled and will not start, there are certain things that you can look at to determine the kind of repair that you will need. The battery on the CR-V is the most important component in starting the SUV. If the battery is dead, the car will not be able to start. If your car has stalled and now will not start, you might have a broken fuel gauge or no gas.

  1. 1

    Open the bonnet to your Honda CR-V and look at the battery. Smell the battery. If you smell something that reminds you of rotten eggs coming from the battery replace the battery. The rotten eggs smell is sulphur and its presence indicates your battery is dead.

  2. 2

    Loosen the battery terminals with a socket wrench and then clean any corrosion off of them with soda and a wire brush. Reattach the terminals and then try to restart the car.

  3. 3

    Jump-start the CR-V with another car and a pair of jump leads. Leave the CR-V running for 5 minutes and then cut it off.

  4. 4

    Restart the CR-V. If the car will not restart, replace the battery.

  5. 5

    Fill the gas tank up with a gallon of gas. Restart the CR-V. If the car restarts, have a mechanic replace your fuel gauge.
