That happend to me one time in my 06 EX too! it wouldnt crank or turn over nothin i was just sitting in the car thinking what the hell could be causing this problem? within a few minutes a tried again and it turned over and started it was scary at first because i thought the car wasnt going to start and id have to have it towed to the dealer. My friend is having a serious problem with his brand new 07 CRV,he tells me his crv didnt start the other day either,his power door locks power everything didnt work and he had to get in the car manually. Other then that ive had no serious issues so far,although i did read other threads about hesitation when starting up normally or in cold or hot weather,it does start up very rough sometimes does yours have this problem too?

sounds like the sterring wheel lock....pat of teh anti-theft system.
caused by:if you try to turn the wheel without the key it, it will lock it in place and also not allow you to turn the key.
