  1. 2017 Always-on 12v accessory power outlet

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    This post is just a clarification and expansion of Gravy’s post back in 2010 regarding converting a switched 12v accessory power outlet to constant hot on the 2017 Honda CR-V. (24-do-yourself-mods/10281-accessory-power-socket-always) I finally found the relay that needs to be jumped in the 2017...
  2. 12V outlet power question

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So I recently bought a 12v vacuum for use in the car. Something small I can store in the car to clean up occassional messes. The instructions say that for better power to the vacuum to start the engine (as opposed to just turning on the car to accessory mode). So my question is, what is it...
  3. U.S. 12v cargo accessory socket question...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I couldn't find any info on this. I'm in the US and as far as I know Canadian models come with the cargo 12v plug. Have any US users located the wiring? Is it even prewired? My last few cars, I've had it in the trunk, and I could use it in this one too. My last resort would be to piggyback the...

  5. Loss of 12v signal to Throttle Position sensor

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hello. I am testing the wiring at my TPS and finding I do not have power coming to my red/black wire. I am getting the 5V reference and have good ground. Does anyone have a wiring diagram or point me to the source of the 12v power? I'm pretty sure it will be at the PCM but which pin?
  6. 2014: Power Outlets Not Working; Fuses Fine

    Problems & Issues
    In the past week or two my power outlets (both of them - above the cupholders and in the center console) stopped working. Obviously I figured it was the fuse. Two fuses are listed in the owners manual (both 20A) - one for each outlet. Both were fine. I tested every fuse under the dash and under...
  7. 2012 CR-V 12V Constant Power?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Does anyone know if any of the interior fuses on the 2012 CR-V have constant 12V power? If so, which number is it? I'm thinking the Driver's Power Seat or maybe washer may be an option. There's also some open fuses that could be hot as well.
  8. Constant 12v power source under dash

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi all, We recently bought a 2010 LX for my wife's commuting duties. She came from a Ford, which has constant-on power sockets, which are handy to charge her wifi hotspot and phone while visiting clients. I'm looking to wire up a few for her, and need to locate a constant-hot source I can tap...
  9. 12V Power Source at Rear of 2012 CR-V?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I need help finding a 12V power source in the back of my 2012 CR-V for a dash cam I'll be mounting on the rear window. The power source needs to be 12V and only active when the ignition switch is on. At first, I thought about tapping in to the rear window wiper, but that circuit will only be...
  10. 12V Power Outlet in Console 2013 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    The 12V adapter for my computer shorted out and looks like it took the power outlet in the console with it. I replaced the 20 blade fuse in slot 12, but still no power. The original fuse looked okay except for some minor scorching. Are there any relays that could have burned up? How do you...

  12. 2011 CRV Accessory 12V (Rear) Relay location?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I would like to wire up the Rear Accessory Power to be always hot. I have a 12v cooler that has battery draining protection in it, and I want to be able to keep stuff cold when the ignition is off. I would like to find the relay that provides power to this when the ignition comes on, but I...
  13. Will solar charger through 12V accessory port work on 2012 CRV?

    Maintenance and Service
    Yesterday, my car wouldn't start. Probably due in part to the cold, but the Honda dealership was telling me that my short trips (about 5 miles to/from work each day) isn't enough to keep the battery charged. He suggested a trickle charger. I live in an apartment with outdoor parking, so a...
  14. 12v Accessory plug relay(s) for 2014 CR-V

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello, fellow CRV owners! I've just purchased a beautiful 2014 CRV EX (Kona Coffee) and I'm really enjoying it. Like so many vehicles, the 12v accessory sockets are powered off when the key is not in the accessory or ignition position. I've searched all over and can't seem to find which relay(s)...
  15. where is the relay that controls 12v accessory sockets on Honda Crv 2009?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2009 crv and the 12v socket in console between seats has no power, fuse 29 + fuse 28 are both ok had the console out and there is no power to the connector block? This leads me to think the relay may be dead? Anyone know where it is?
  16. Installed gentex compass/temp mirror! what wire to tap off for 12v power?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I just installed this mirror and I am assuming that I tap off a 12v supply line like the rear view wiper. I do not have a test light and was wondering if someone knew what wire I would tap off near the fuse box to get power. This is for a 2011 CRV. There are 2 harnesses located near the fuse...

  20. 12V needed Keyless Remote Entry Addition

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I'm trying to add a key less unlock/lock to the driver side door of a 2003 Honda CR-V. I think I know how to set it to lock and unlock the doors, but the main issue I'm having is getting always on 12V power, without going directly to the battery, from a wire in the door. Does anyone know which...
