    2017 CRV Touring AWD Cabin Heat and Engine Temperature Problems

    Hello all. Wanted to share my experience with my problem. Before I start telling you about my problem, I just want to say that I'm sorry that I'm having this problem. I really do enjoy my CRV but after this, not so much.

    My problem is really preventing me from enjoying my CRV.

    My CRV's engine temp gauge only shows that it warms up when my cabin heat is off while my car is is parked. If I drive the car a bit, it will eventually warm up. However, when I sit in park again and leave my heat on, the engine temp guage goes all the way down to no bars and the car will start blowing cooler air instead of heat. Huge problem for me because I sit in my car while it's parked and running for a decent duration of time and I need to stay warm. Thankfully my heated seats works, but something wrong here.

    Been going back and fourth to my dealer and they showed me a new 2019 CRV Touring, and it does the same thing. Dealer refuses to do anything for me, but I payed a lot of this car and i don't think I'm crazy asking to have some heat while I'm parked. I did ask them to demonstrate the NA CRV, and that car's heat worked fine.

    Any suggestions on where to proceed with this? Dealer claims, nothing wrong with my car, they all do this and it's normal. I don't think to have cabin heat while I sit in my car while I'm parked is asking for much.

    It's a lease, but I did lease with intentions of buying it out for the residual value after my lease was up. Kills me right now to know I'm making lease payments for a car that I don't want to buy has a serious problem with it.

    My suggestion of “where to proceed with this” would be to ask the dealership to plug in to the OBD-II port and provide you with their diagnostic data of engine temp and vent temp. They do not “all do this, it’s normal”. That’s dealership BS. Be sure to post back with those diagnostic numbers from the dealership......you’ll be the first to do so.

    FWIW, I see 90F-100F vent temp when the temp gauge 1st displays (+/-130F coolant temp). Both numbers go up from there.

    Fan speed 1-3, temp HI, recirculate, manual mode (compressor off).

    What’s your fan speed? Are you on recirculating or fresh? If on fresh, try a lower fan speed. You should get hotter air.

    I'll ask them to do this. Thanks for the input. Do want to mention the dealer told me to call Honda corp so I'll try that on Monday also.

    I like to leave my temp settings on auto and I just adjust the heat. The morning can be cold here in New York so I have temp set to max heat. I believe with auto, you are on recirculate mode.

    Strange though engine temp on my dashboard goes down all the way to zero.

    Yes I'll be sure to. My dealer's service dept is closed tomorrow so it may be a week.
