    Hi All, I have a 2009 CRV EX model. My battery had a parasitic draining issue, and I found it to be the bluetooth module. Once disconnected everything was fine, and no battery issues since. I know the speakers for the bluetooth are set above the inside mirror and wondered the best way to get...

    Hi yall, I just bought my 09 CR-V, and one question I can't quite get answered is when should the timing chain be serviced? I had a 1998 Toyota 4Runner previously that served me well so I was familiar with timing belt maintenance, but this is the first vehicle I've had with a chain. Any help...

    Does anyone know procedures for how to set “Keyless Entry” auto door locks for 2009 CRV so the horn does not beep? On my 2009 CRV, it seems I have to push the key fob unlock button 3-4 times before it finally unlocks my back doors or hatch, and all the honking bothers my neighbors, especially...

    I am trying to find a replacement screen for my 2009 CRV. Currently it has the original screen. I want an Android replacement that is all singing all dancing - but must connect to rear view camera, existing speaker system (inc sub woofer) and have Android Auto capabilities. There are a few on...

    Fellow CR-V owners; My wife managed to run into the garage frame with our 2009 CR-V, putting a nice dent in the lower right side of the (plastic?) front bumper. The dent goes back a few inches with about an 8 inch crease. Looking at it, I am wondering if it can simply be popped out? Is there...

    Hello, I’m posting here as my parents car is yet again experiencing difficulties - and I know nothing about cars. Just this past week the brakes went on the car and it was a very expensive job that they could just barely afford. The day after it was fixed, we started hearing this awful...

    Hello, I’m installing a wired backup camera in my CR-V and need your help on how to route the wire to the front of the vehicle to connect it to the head unit. If anybody has done it before I’d greatly appreciate your help, thanks!

    When should the timing belt be changed? My partner uses it for ski trips and for driving up to our cabin near the Canadian Border in Central Washington. It has 115,000 miles on it. I use it driving around town in Salem, Oregon.

    2009 CRV, I just converted to LED headlamps, will the DRL warning light going on and off affect anything in the long run? Can I just simply ignore it? Thanks

    Hey Folks I have a dead TPMS sensor on a 2007. I purchased an Autel MX-Sensor and am going to put it in shortly. The Autel manual states the sensor weighs 18.5g with the valve stem. I'd like to do this without having to rebalance the wheel, so I need to know what the OEM sensor weighs. That...

    Has anyone had an issue with the paint chipping on their CRV? I have a White 2009 CRV that I purchased used in 2012. Within the past couple of years the paint on the hood and roof has started peeling. It seems to be just happening on the top of the vehicle. The sides and back are fine. I...

    I noticed for a few weeks now that my 2009 with 70,000 miles engine shudders and very gently hesitates while I try accelerating, but only when driving slowly and I keep the rpms below 2000. The problem has slowly materialized but seems to be getting more and more noticeable, as the days go by...
