    Problems & Issues
    Hi all - This is for a 2003 CRV EX - UK version if it matters much. Thanks in advance for those that bear with me on all of the details. I think I've located the other threads that show many similar symptoms, but my case seems to be unique in comparison. Here's the situation. This is with...

    Midwest CR-V Owners
    My wife and I bought our CR V last year in February and we fell in love with it before driving it off the lot. Everything was great until the hottest day of last summer when on a trip and at the snap of a finger, the air conditioner started blowing hot air. Being somewhat knowledgeable about...

    Hello here and new to Honda I have brought a 2000 CRV back from the dead - it was left sitting for what seems donkey years. I have almost everything working except for the AC. It appears that the AC clutch isn't engaging - the AC light is on, the blower is working, etc; except...
  8. AC problem - Freon didn't help

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi All, I have a problem with my AC that I haven't been able to figure out. About a month ago, it started only intermittently blowing cold air. I check the compressor and it seems to be working. The clutch catches and seems to be functioning. After I checked that, I recharged the freon...
  9. 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...

  11. Air Conditioning Condensate Drains to Engine Compartment?

    Problems & Issues
    My air conditioning condensate drains to the bottom of the engine compartment instead of beneath the car. Is everyone else's drain this way? Seems like an odd design since all that moisture causes rust. Has anyone attached an extension hose to the drain so that the water goes directly to the...
  12. 2003 AC Blowing Warm Air/AC Compressor replaced 4 years ago

    Maintenance and Service
    Like many other people, my AC compressor "blew up"/shattered 4 years ago and it was approximately $1200 to replace (no help from Honda despite the class action suit). Since the replacement, the AC has been working fine (used May-Oct in Chicago) up until 2 days ago when it started blowing warm...
  13. 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...

  15. AC Not Working after Car Wash

    Problems & Issues
    I just got a full-service car wash and after driving away on this hot Maryland afternoon, realized the AC isn't working properly. I have a 2011 CRV with Navigation.. I have tried everything I can think of and consulted the manual with no luck. I can hear the air blowing and some cool air is...
  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. 2008 AC Stopped Working "Thermoswitch" and "AC Coil"

    Problems & Issues
    Hello All, I have a 2008 CRV with less than 65,000 miles and the air conditioner stopped working on a very hot day. I took it to the dealer and they diagnosed the problem as a broken “AC Coil” and “Thermoswitch”. Coolant levels are fine, the blower works. Apologizing in advance for the high...
  18. 2010 EX-L rough idle when air conditioner on

    Problems & Issues
    Just got my 2010 CR-V EX-L FWD+Navi and I love it! This is my 2nd Honda, replacing my 2005 Accord V6, and my first CR-V. My only complaint is a rough idle when the A/C is on. When I turn off the A/C, the idle is smooth as silk. When the A/C is on, the entire car shakes. This happens regardless...
  19. 2004 CRV :: AC Stopped working :: Replace Transistor / Thermal cutoff?

    Problems & Issues
    Today the AC on my '04 CR-V stopped working. I left work and it ran for maybe 3 minutes, then just stopped. I was hot today, about 100F. The car has maybe 55,000 miles on it. The AC light goes on, but the blower doesn't run, not even if you turn it up all the way. I went to try it again this...
