    My CR-V has always started , but had a wee service at local dealer thru up nothing in terms of battery or any other issue when starting. However put key into ignition wait for lights to go out turn key, the car trys to fire but chuggs, sometimes she fires up, most time second turn from scratch required same but usually starts, is this a battery or something more sinister. Like i said it was just starting round about the service time but no mention in car report. I will get a battery test done.

    Sorry but not worth a mention on here, why ask us ? If your not happy take it straight back and ask them ! Worst way a new battery is less than £60
    Didn't mean it to sound so harsh but you know what I mean

    Also not much info on the post. First question: diesel or petrol? Age of vehicle?

    Hi @riki195 , it will be great if you can give a bit more info about your issue. So you had a service recently and no faults were reported yet the car is failing to start on occasions? well first thing to do is to check if the battery is holding charge or not. Best bet is to go to where you got the battery from and get it tested.
