My wife called around 8:15pm on Wednesday 12-01-2010. She told me her car just stopped on the road. She gave me info of her whereabouts. I was only about 5 minutes away thank goodness. As I approached her vehicle I saw in my horrified state her car stalled 30 to 40 feet from the nearest stop light on the far left lane. She was able to stay on an island in the middle of the busy street with my 5 year old daughter!. I parked my car to their right and ran across the street when it was cleared. My brother was behind her with his car with emerg. Lamps on. My wife also had her emerg. Lamps on and I tried starting the car. You could hear it start up but the engine would not kick on. With the help of my brother in law I finally put car in neutral through that bypass switch and we pushed it to the other side of the lane to the right where we could be out of harms way of the violent on coming traffic. I had a close call on the last lane on the right when a on coming car nearly hit the car and my brother in law who was pushing in the back. I called a mechanic I knew a he showed up about 10-15 minutes. He asked for what exactly happened and my wife told him the car just stopped and stalled out of no where. She said the engine and battery indicator lights went on as well. She turned off the ignition and tried to start the crv again and she says alot mort indicating lights turned on but can't remember which ones. My mechanic looked under the hood and told me to start up the car. I started it and low and behold it started up! from the story my wife told him he instantly blamed the ignition wire>>?>?. I told him to come with me to kragens but he said "no, you can only get it at the dealers. I had talked to CO-workers and classmates and one said to look for safety issues online while I had one classmate say he had a similar problem with his Acura, the luxury brand for Honda! my wife's ride is a Honda crv 98. Very unsafe situation that my wife and my 5 year old daughter survived! }: [[.

Failure Date: 02/17/2010

The contact owns a 2009 Honda Cr-v. That contact stated that while sitting in the vehicle with the engine off the doors independently locked. The automatic door locks was not a feature on the vehicle. The dealer stated that because the battery life was low, it was sending a faulty signal to the remote causing the doors to lock independently. The dealer replaced the battery and within three months, the failure recurred. The contact called the manufacturer and was advised to take the vehicle back to the dealer so they could duplicate the failure. The contact stated that this was a safety concern since the keys could be locked inside the vehicle. The failure mileage was 10,913.

Failure Date: 11/24/2004

On 11/24/04 I was driving on a major interstate when my engine and battery lights suddenly came on. I felt as if my breaks were not going to work. I pulled off at the nearest exit trying to get to a safe place to assess the situation. As I got off the exit, smoke began to billow into the car from the vents. A man approached me from behind and informed me my car was on fire. I didn't realize it until that moment. Apparently, it had been shooting flames out from the front wheel wells. My car had about 15,000 miles on it at the time. My oil change was four months earlier with no signs of any oil leaks prior to the fire. The fumes caused me to have an asthma attack, even after the fire was out and the car was towed to a Honda body shop. Because of the holiday, the insurance company will not look at the car until 11/29 or 30. I have no idea if it will be totaled or not. I'm concerned about residual effects from the fire affecting my respiratory problems. Further, I' m concerned about getting another 2004 vehicle that may present with the same problem. Or, even a 2005, if the problem will exist in that as well.
