Leslie Hollis (St. Augustine, Florida) - 2002 Honda CR-V
Leslie has trouble restarting her car after it’s been sitting for a while. The engine cranks but the fuel gauge registers empty--even when she knows it’s full. Eventually the car restarts and after 35-40 minutes the gauge will read correctly. The ground connection on this car is the same for the fuel pump and the sending unit. Tom and Ray think the connection may be corroded which would cause both problems. Leslie should check with the dealer. There may be a technical service bulletin on this.
