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.
