  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My hatch won't unlock nor will my drivers side rear door. I'm assuming it must be an actuator problem but is there anything else that could be causing it? Is the hatch lock somehow connected to the rear drivers side door? All three of the other doors work fine thanks for you inout

    I have an '05 CRV EX. I want to replace the tweeters but I'm not sure of the wire coloring (pos/neg). Tweeters have one grey wire and a grey and blue striped wire. Help please?

    2005 CR-V, 166,000 miles. Driver's side door lock broke a few months ago. Key would no longer fit or open it. I've had to crawl in through the passenger side to unlock it (not classy). I should also mention that the power locks haven't worked in nearly ten years (another issue altogether). I...

    I've seen several older posts about the rattling noise following start up of the CRV. It's happening to my car also, and I brought it to the attention of my car dealer a year ago. He said he couldn't hear anything. Yesterday, (when the car was in for routine maintenance), I was told I need a new...

    this is very disappointing we just had the vtc actuator tsb done on this car 3 weeks ago, now a new cold start noise is occurring. Got a call into honda for drop off this Thursday night so it can sit in the cold over night so it will repeat it in the morning for them. WTF...

    My 2002 CRV driver's side door actuator needs to be replaced. I bought the car used in Guatemala, where I live part time, about 6 months ago. It has only 90 K Kilometers on it (Original for sure).If I am correct, there might have been a recall on the Original part. I am about to buy a...

    Not sure if this is the right place, if not please accept my apologies. My daughter has a 2003 (Gen or Mark 2). The tailgate actuator has failed, the lock is fine so it has been diagnosed as the actuator that is at fault. This is the actuator for the tailgate, not for the glass. I cannot find...

    Hello everyone, I'm looking at some used (off lease) 2014 CR-V LXs with approx. 35k for a bit under $16k. The dealer has several and I nearly bought one already, but after much research, the one thing I'm kind of hung up on is the VTC issue. Here's my questions regarding the VTC actuator noise...

    I know there are a thousand threads on the Variable Timing Control (VTC) actuator, but nothing unique to my specific problem, hence my thread. All opinions welcome, so please sound off. I purchased my 2013 Honda CR-V EX-L from my mom in January. The vehicle had 29,000 miles and no major...

    I'm replacing my actuator and I can't for the life of me find sufficient instructions for the whole process. I'm at the point where I'm ready to remove the actual actuator piece and I can't see how it's supposed to come out. Looks like it should slide off of the fixture? Also if I'm supposed to...

  16. Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, My wife and I recently purchased a certified used 2013 CR-V EX on November 30th 2015. We have discovered that the TSB regarding the cam actuator assembly was never completed and we started having the often described grinding issue during ignition on cold starts. We took it back to...

    I purchased my first Honda automobile June 2012 - I researched and thought this was a great reliable car Honda CRV. Take it to the winter of 2014 and a grinding sound started every one in while. I didn't think much of it at first now starting in Spring 2015 and now every time I start the CRV...

    I have 08 CRV, and got a letter from Honda about door lock actuator recall on Jan 2015. I was totally forgot about that and just remember after check some posts on this website. My door lock seems OK, but honda says they replace whether it works fine or not. What I remember is that Honda gave...

    Today my alternator went out as I was driving. The electrical shut down first, speedometer, air, windows - weren't working, but the car was still driving though we didn't make it to Honda. We had it towed to the dealership to replace the alternator. While there they said they would fix the...
