  1. 2015 CR-V HVAC Tune Up. Is this worth it??

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    2015 CR-V HVAC Tune Up. Is this worth it?? My service center/Honda dealer in Bossier City recommended an HVAC Tune Up. It doesn't have any descriptions for it and I didn't ask what this was all about. I looked through the manual and found only about changing the engine air filter, cabin air...
  2. AC bot working in my 2005

    Problems & Issues
    I checked it with a gauge and there is the right amount of R134a in it. The compressor comes on when I turn on the ac and is quiet and no banging. I can hear the engine sound like a drag is put on it when I turn it on, but not a bad drag by any means. First though is a fuse maybe blew, but have...

  4. 1999 CRV - Warm AC, hissing noise behind the glove box (Expansion valve leak?)

    1999-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1.5)
    Hello all, I recently purchased a 1999 CRV, I've owned a couple and had AC issues before. The first simply needed a new compressor, and was good to go. AC on my new 1999 CRV does not work. When the AC button is pressed, a hissing noise begins and continues until I turn the vents off or turn...
  5. CRV AC Compressor "improvement"

    Problems & Issues
    Having recently replaced the entire AC system on my son's 2003 (black death) I'm trying to put off having to do it again on either his 2003 or my wife's 2006. My understanding is that the main cause of the compressor failures is the compressor's placement in the engine compartment. Because it...
  6. A/C problem, Acceleration problem...too many problems! 🙄

    2002-2004 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 2)
    So I have a 2004 CR-V, and the A/C just went out, but before it did I had already noticed a problem. To put the A/C on a low setting I would have to turn it up, and when I turned the A/C knob down it would blow harder. Now it just doesn't work. Also, sometimes when I take off the car will jerk...
  7. Help with 2009 Honda CRV Air Conditioner

    Problems & Issues
    My AC functions fine in the morning on the way to work (when its cooler outside), but when the outside temp is over 80 degrees, anytime the engine is over 2000 rpm it cycles way too frequently (5-10 seconds on, about a minute off) without cooling down much of anything. After about 5 minutes of...
  8. Intermittent blower, not resistor or many things

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Girlfriends CR-V has a ghost in it, but most likely a real thing. The blower went out 6 months ago, before the start of the semester. Did the basic checks - Fuses, relays (all good) Took it to HONDA, they said it was the fuse box. Replaced the whole fuse box, didn't fix...
  9. A/C Quit Working

    Maintenance and Service
    So today, as I'm waiting for my fiance in the parking lot, I noticed that my A/C wasn't blowing cold air. I hit the A/C button a few times, to listen to the compressor kick on and off and it seemed to work fine. I just thought that maybe it had ran out of Freon. I shut the car off and sat...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I just recently purchased a 2010 Honda CRV and so far I love it! There doesn't seem to be very many issues at all! There is one thing that I can't seem to get to work and I was wondering if anyone has incountered this or can help me figure out what is going on. When I have the...
  11. Air Conditioning

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, My A/C started blowing warm (non-cooled) air a few weeks ago. Symptoms are pretty simple: - Push button, A/C light comes on. - No change in engine performance - seems as though clutch on compressor is not engaging to run A/C. I thought "what the hell", and decided to spring for a...
  12. 04 CRV Loud whine with A/C engaged - video clip included

    Problems & Issues
    Please help. I can not find a similar clip to help me identify what my issue is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oromIeOcu0Y When I'm driving without the A/C on, everything seems to be fine. No weird noises or power issues. When i turn the A/C on, I get this very loud whining noise and the car...

    Problems & Issues
    Howdy DIY'ers - New member here. I thought I'd post a couple of points on DIY AC clutch and coil replacement as I have been unable to find anything online concerning this. Sorry - this is not a step-by-step tutorial for the mechanical newbie, nor would I recommend you take this on unless you...
  14. AC only works in FULL COLD

    Interior
    Hello, Everyone! I'm new to the group but not Hondas ;-) I have owned nothing but Hondas since 1990 and I recently purchased a used 2002 CR-V EX AWD as a private sale. I'm giving it some love and fixing up some minor issues but the one which has me baffled at the moment is the AC system. It...
  15. Not really another A/C question, just a quick question...

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2008 base model CR-V and my A/C just spontaneously started blowing out hot, scalding air! I read through a bunch of the forum stuff and, after I figured out where my compressor was I checked the clutch. It was stuck, apparently. I got a length of PVC pipe and tapped on it with the...
  16. AC Short Cycle issues?? High 'Low-side' pressures

    Maintenance and Service
    AC is short cycling. Works normal for a while (in the driveway or on the highway) and then starts short cycling and blowing warm air. It drags the engine down pretty good on each short cycle as well. I hooked up a set of gauges today and the low side seems rather high at 90 psi while the high...
  17. Cruise Controls Goes off by itself and A/C light comes on when it shouldn't

    Problems & Issues
    Just bought the 2002 CRV EX on Saturday. I love it but it has a couple of problems. One is that the cruise control works fine--for awhile. Maybe 3-45 miles, then goes off. Sometimes it will kick itself back on. Other times to get it to work again, you have to push the button on the dash to...
  18. 2004 make in UK, $450 for condenser and radiator fans?

    Problems & Issues
    Replaced the a/c compressor last month. A/c started acting up over the weekend. Sometimes it would cool, sometimes not. Took it back to mechanic. He said, "looks like your car was imported, or bought overseas. I tried to get your fans and they are coming up as foreign parts and costing a...
  19. A/C stopped working

    Problems & Issues
    Hi Guys, This is my first post on here. I'm usually found skulking around the totalmini forum for my little beast but today i've been seconded to look at my wife's (massive) CR-V. She was driving her 57 plate 2.2l diesel EX (42,000 miles on the clock) this morning with the climate control on...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, talking about a 1998 crv. three weeks ago I have replaced the rear engine mount (at a shop). It was thorn for a couple of years now and every gear shift was felt. After the change the stiring wheel was vibrating in my hands while the car was standing but running (on a red light for example)...
