Brand new car battery keeps dying. Why?

Probably a bad alternator. Your car is under warranty; take it to the dealer for a fix. If you attempt to fix this yourself, you might give the dealer an excuse to void the warranty for this.

I just got word from my Honda dealer that there is a problem with 2019 CRV. There is a computer glitch causing some cars not to start. This is unacceptable when buying a new car. I am Consulting the lemon law lawyer. She told me she received 4 cases earlier in the week. I made no 5.

Pennsylvania. Bucks county. We have consulted the lemon law people it qualifies

Our dealership has us overriding a program by pressing the start button 3 times after you shut it off. Supposedly this car runs an omissions test after every other ride and that does not shut off which is draining the battery so their answer is to press the start button three times after you shut the car off which overrides that program. Still acceptable for a brand new CRV!!

GuruC7BL9: Hope you had a chance to read the through the thread I posted above. There are 131 posts to check out. Would love to have you join us. Strength in numbers... If I may ask, have you met all the requirements for the PA Lemon Law yet? Did you go through the Regional Arbitration process already? We only have 2 service department visits, two visits to our house by the service department plus many jumpstarts and one tow. 15 days at dealer. Only two receipts though. Don’t think we qualify for the LL yet. Getting close. They have a Recall in Canada now and some dealers here have the software update but we haven’t been notified yet and do have a Honda Case #. Thanks very much for the info you shared above.

Lemon law lawyer said it needs to die 3 times to qualify. We are on 2 times. When we spoke to the lemon law lawyer she said this problem qualifies and to call again after the third no start. Lemon law attorney was quite aware of the Honda problem.

Thanks so much for the information GuruC7BL9. Does “die” mean the car had to be jumpstarted, from what we consider dead, or does it mean that it couldn’t be jumpstarted and had to be towed? Sorry for all the questions.

To the best of my knowledge car has to die meaning it won’t start. We call Honda road side assistance they come to tow it. But have to jump start it - in order to start - it to drive it into tow truck.

I received a call this afternoon from my Honda dealer saying that they have the program. My service is for 5:00 today. 4/1/19. I’ll keep you posted. Hopefully this fixes the problem.

2019 crv will not start. Everything unresponsive. Tried to jump but car alarm went off nonstop. Still no response. Called dealership, will not be able to handle problem today. Told me to call 800 in Calif. Will do that. Local dealer used to take care of problems. Not happy!!!

Has anyone gotten a, "Electric Brake Problem" notice while trying to start the car but unable to start it ? CRV, 2017 bought new from dealer in Yonkers , NY

We had this same problem on our 2018 CR-V recently. It wouldn’t start two times in one day and had to be jump started. The dash board display said “brake hold system problem” and “electric parking brake problem”. It only has 11,xxx miles on it. The dealer installed a new battery. I hope this is the end of the problem.

I have 2019 CR-V and from couple months ago, it starts, started from the glitch when starting engine and completely died Today. I'm checking if this qualify for the LL while waiting for my towing truck... two more dead, huh?!

Update, 2017 CRV that wouldn't start. "Electric Brake Problem" caused the wheels to lock up causing the car not to even be able to be rolled out of it's spot . Roadside Assistance sent two different trucks and they didn't even lay a hand on the car, they told me you need to get the car out of the garage so we can tow it. I then called my own mechanic and his guy came over and within two hours the car was at Honda dealership. hey refused to tell me what they did to fix the problem, they said it was a battery. Here is the worst part of it, I have no confidence in this vehicle anymore. I checked the battery and guess what, it' s not new at all and the tie down holder nuts were never even turned. I am stuck with a $90 towing fee. I think I am going back to a Toyota.
