2003 Honda CR-V | Answered on Feb 19, 2018


I would read the codes for help. Could be the gas cap seal has gone bad, or some other part of the emission system has leak.

2003 Honda CR-V | Answered on Feb 12, 2018


Yes, buy a new cap. If the light comes on again, just have the computer scanned and then post the trouble codes here. If you are in the US, you can get a free scan at your local parts store.

You can do it alone, just remove the bumper, there should be a bolt and nut there and somewhere near the fender. The lamp will be free then.

If an automatic, put your foot on the brake first of course. If it won;t go into gear although in drive, check the lower gear selector solenoid pair, It is easy to remove and clean. It is under a metal cap with 3 10mm bolts. Front right passengers side of automatic tranny, 96 to 2002 Civics and Accords and CRV. Whack it on its face a few times and blow it out with a compressor. Use a pencil and a rag to keep from losing all your fluid when you take it off. Check the sound of the click with a 12 volt battery. Sometimes the solenoids get stuck if the fluid gets varnished or if it sits too long. The upper solenoid pair is not so touchy. Bottom solenoid will sometimes prevent starting out in first and will go straight to 2nd or 3rd from start. Also some creep in neutral.

It's stalling at lights because of no brake lights. Meaning the brake light switch and transmission power to shut off the overdrive is not working. Any time you touch the brake, overdrive is turned off because power to trans is stopped when brake lights come on. Both these operations are performed by the same switch under the dash and mounted so that when the brake pedal is depressed, the switch button comes out and turns on the brake lights in turn shutting down the overdrive. Adjust or replace that brake light switch and you're good to go.
