Asked by Jul 31, 2014 at 03:54 PM about the 2005 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving, my VSA, ABS, Airbag, engine and oil lights came on. Pulled over, turned
car off, turned it back on, and at first it would,nt turn over.  Waited a bit, tried again and it
started, no warning lights on. drove it again, and car felt like it was going to stall out,
brakes became hard to push.  took it to dealer, and now after two test drives, problem is
not happening.  Any idea what is wrong?  Car is 2005 Honda CRV.

3 Possibilities. (Troubleshoot) 1. Test battery (sounds like alternator not charging battery) While you are at it, clean your battery terminals! 2. Have alternator checked 3. Check wires & plugs if first 2 are 100% perfect. Bad wires may cause a car to stall but should not cause lights to turn on... That is usually battery or alternator. As always we advise you to go to a trusted Honda Authorized Dealer with OEM parts if there are any issues with Battery or Alternator. If ALL lights on dashboard lit up "like a Christmas Tree" without seeing car, most likely we have experienced number 1 or 2. GOOD LUCK with you Honda CRV!

My wife has the same problem (2006). I found something online about changing the oil - did it and it works. Assume there is a sensor that gets messed up when the oil breaks down. As long as we change the oil every 3 months - no issues. If we don't, it happens again (lights and then stalls). Not the actual fix but a reasonable work around as we don't want to put money into the car (very high mileage now).
