  1. When should I get the timing chain serviced?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  2. How to set 2009 CRV Auto Doorlock Keyless Entry

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...

  8. 2009 CRV Weird Starting but then No Power Issue

    Problems & Issues
    Thought I would post and see if anyone else has seen this/has any idea what problem is. I went to start CRV, it started to crank and then instead of turning on, all lights on dash everywhere went out and cranking stopped. Sudden and almost like battery was dead--but it's only 2 months old. I...
  9. Starter Cut Relay on 2009 LX/FWD/AT

    Problems & Issues
    Some months ago, I started to get the buzzing while starting issue, along with intermittent silent/no start problems. Seemed to be more prevalent when the car was in a hot climate, i.e. when my wife took it to FL for a family visit, it acted up multiple times per day. At home in OH over the...
  10. Repairing dented front bumper in 2009 CR-V EX... Easy to do?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  11. 2009 Brake light mystery

    Problems & Issues
    Guy pulls up alongside me today and tells me all 3 brake lights aren't working. The car was just inspected about 4 weeks ago, they were all working then so I assumed it wasn't a case of them going out one at a time. Since the brake lights and the horn are on the same fuse, #12, I assumed it...

    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...

    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
