    Hello All! I recently bought a CRV 2006 (which I am totally in love with). I have 2 questions: 1. It came with the SatNav radio, but sadly it's screen is stuck on "not being able to read the map dvd properly" - does any one know how I can restart the radio and circumvent this ? I don't need the...

    Hi there - frequent reader, first time poster. I've got a delightful 2006 CR-V standard that I love, and it's about to hit 300k. It's third hand at this point, I've had it for four years. Recent repairs have included brakes/rotors/calipers, tires, and a knock sensor. I replaced my own...

    Hello, I own a 2006 Honda CRV. Went to the store this morning, no problems, driving fine as usual. But when I went to go get my meds I’m getting nothing. When I turn the key, no click, crank, no anything. Only thing that happens is the “brake” light comes on. Looked online and couldn’t fine...
  4. 2006 Honda CRV SE - Custom

    After driving my first gen 1997 CRV to 308,000 miles, the head gasket job I did failed, so it was time for a new ride. I bought this 2006 Honda CRV from a Ford dealer in West Palm Beach, it was "as-is" so I had some work to do to get it back in good running order. This is my daily driver and I...

    We are replacing the compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion valve and hoses on the vehicle. Can anyone point me to directions on accessing the evaporator/expansion valve? Can I get to them by taking out the glovebox and blower assembly? thanks, Dale

    Hello all, ran into a issue while changing my plugs today. Cylinder 3 has oil all over it, and the coil is covered in oil. I know that mean I need a new valve cover gasket.

    Greetings from Norway, and my first post here. I have a issue with my great 2006 model. Normally my headlights and tail lights has switched on automatic with ignition as drl. But a while back I had some issues with short circuit due to some led I tried in the parking light / side light. I...

    My 2006 with 117K on the clock has paint issues. The worst is on the hood where there are two spots with fading and oxidizing paint. I've tried wax and compound without much success. Finally ran by a recommended shop to see just what the cost might be to paint and match. The quote is $605...

    Newbie - replacing engine 2006 CR-V Kevin in Minneapolis. Just bought a 2006 CR-V, needs a new engine. Trying to figure out if way to identify engines visually - some have I-VTEC on valve covers, mine does not. Also, can't find the engine ID number. Thanks, orrenz1917 at g mail

    I'm going to need a new (used) engine and have been told to get a UK one. I can't find the engine ID, and notice that many photos show the black valve cover with I-VTEC - mine does not have that. Is that a way to identify Japanese vs. UK manufacture? Thanks, Kevin in Minnepolis. orrenz1917 at g mail

  14. Diesel CR-V
    Daughter was driving home yesterday and the car was making screechy, scraping noises. On checking we have found that the prop shaft has sheared or broken off at the joint to the rear axle, with the two halves of the joint having come apart. The noise is the prop shaft contacting the retaining...

    Last week I lost the drivers side low beam on the CRV. No problem, have changed the other side within the past year. I had dress clothes on when I pulled into the AutoZone, and the counter guy told me there were two different bulbs available for my vehicle and he offered to pull the bulb for me...

  17. Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi I am in the hunt for a gen 2 and am wondering if a well maintained crv with new tires, serpentine belt, brakes and rotors for 6700$ is a good deal? He said he would be able to lower by a few hundred dollars but this is on the high end of KBB 4800-6800.

    What's the highest mileage you've seen?
  20. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    My 2006 CRV has 130k miles. I pumped air to the tires at 30 psi to measure the fuel economy. I filled the tank before a 200 mile trip and then refilled the tank afterward. Only got 25 mpg. Granted I was driving at 70mph (cruise control) which is faster than what Honda probably test its own EPA...
