    The A/C in my fiance's '09 Honda CR-V EXL just started randomly cutting in and out. I'm not sure on the exact mileage, but if i had to guess, it's probably 140-150k (she has a ~90 mile round trip commute for work, so half of those miles are almost entirely highway). But getting back to the...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Maybe a fuse but none of the panel fuses fit the bill. Maybe it's something else, I figured I'd start with simpler. Any suggestions?
