Default 2005 CRV Will not start

Hi all,

I really hope to get some help here with this problem. I have a 2005 CRV that was running fine one day, filled it up with gas and hit the road. Next day the car would not start. The starter turns the engine, it just acts like it isn't getting fuel or spark. I checked for fuel at the fuel rail and didn't think I had enough psi so I replaced the fuel sending/filter unit. Checked fuel at the rail again and it really squirted out of there, so I am thinking psi is good, and I hear the pump run when I turn the key to the on position. I have checked for spark at the plug with a spark checker tool from Harbor Freight and it seems to be working, it flashes. I checked the resistance of the injectors and I got 9.5 ohms on all four. I checked for the ground signal at the injectors with an automotive logic probe and I do get the negitive pulse so I believe the CKP is ok. What othe steps could I do to help solve this problem? Any help and all help is welcome.

Do a compression/leakdown test just to make sure nothing internally is damaged, check over the grounds they can also cause a no-start

It's you imovolizer/key, did you drop your key? Do you have a secondary key? If you do, try the second key.
It is a known problem that does happend, second generation and third generation crvs come equipped with a imovolizer the works by matching the key to the egnition switch, if the key, or the key reader in the ignition switch malfunction, you will not be able to start the vehicle, most of the time it is the key that malfunctions do to the fact the key is what takes more beatings than the ignition switch.
Regardless of what the pro lem turns out to be, let us know so the we have an answer for the next guy that runs into a similar problem..
Good luck! It's your key!!
