  1. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Got into a fender bender with my 06 CRV. Mechanic installed a new radiator and fans so I could drive it home for the rest of the work and said that there were no other mechanical issues with the car. I drove it home and parked it. Had to take the radiator out again for some body work but got in...

    Hello, 11 months ago, my alternator went bad, I hooked up the voltmeter to the battery, it went up to around 15 -16 volts. Replaced the bad alternator with a brand new alternator (aftermarket). My car worked fine till now. When I start my car, it will idle around 14v. For a moment it climbs...

    Any recommendations on an upgraded alternator. Is there any website that sells them? I’m doing a whole music setup and I would like to upgrade the stock alternator to something that will be about to power two batteries comfortably. Also, does anyone know the stock amperage on a stock alternator?

    Does anyone know if the 2016 OEM battery is lithium? I'd like to charge it with a NOCO Genius 1 Battery Charger + Maintainer but was unsure on selection of "12V" or "12V lithium." Today, my battery light on my dash turned solid red, and pretty much everything died including the SUV. My...

    Hello, I own a 2006 Honda CRV. Went to the store this morning, no problems, driving fine as usual. But when I went to go get my meds I’m getting nothing. When I turn the key, no click, crank, no anything. Only thing that happens is the “brake” light comes on. Looked online and couldn’t fine...

    Hi there I have a 1999 CRV that wont start. When I turn the key the engine tries turning over a couple times then starts clicking. I've had the alternator and battery tested. Alt passed 3 times at autozone and the battery had no charge so had them charge it. The starter was replaced around 3,000...

    Firstly, I do have a digital volt meter installed in my 2009 V dash. My battery totally died on me this past Sunday, after I had just parked it up the night before. For the last week or so before, I did notice that the voltage has been dropping down to 12.1 volts, intermittently, and then...

    Hi there, Just hoping to get some input for an issue I am having with my "new" 2006 CR-V. I apologize for the long post but there are a few details that may be related. I recently purchased this vehicle from my friend who lives in another state. A friend of hers drove it her & delivered...

    I just bought a 2007 EX as a work beater car for its 4WD and cargo. I've had it a few months now, and this past Wednesday, the charging light came on on the dash. I limped home and made it almost all the way (1.1 mi!) before it shut down. I put a new alternator in it, and the old one tested...

    I have 2007 CRV (just recently bought) with almost 132,000 on it. My alternator was replaced yesterday and when I got into the car after having it done, the check engine light came on. Got it tested today. Timing chain code. After having it tested and turning the car back on, the light was gone...

    Hi All, My Honda CRV 2014 battery has just died last week. When looking for how to replace a battery, I learn a few more things about alternator and battery voltage. I replaced my stock battery with Costco Kirkland Group 35 and i could start the engine fine. However, when I test the voltage...
  13. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi! I recently measured the voltage of the battery after 2 hours of riding in winter time and the battery was at 12V after a few hours of rest. From many sources on the web, a lead-acid battery with 12V would be at only 50% of charge. I was surprised since we runed for 2 hours at 90 kmh. I...

    Car won't start at times, but battery, alternator, starter are good I have a 2013 CRV that I have had a problem starting. The battery, alternator and starter were tested by AAA, and are supposedly good. Has anyone else had this problem?

    thought i had a leak in the back left corner of my oil pan. turns out the oil is coming from behind the alternator, or so it seems. haven't quite got it out yet but does anybody have an idea of what could be leaking there? my worst thought is an oil plug from the block manufacturing process...

    Hi have bought a new alternator and am preparing to install it myself. Looking around there is little finite how-to's on removal & refitting - and from what I have managed to find, this is a very difficult process. Thoughts & advice are welcome before I decide to continue doing this myself...

    Hello everyone! I've got a 2005 CRV, and my dash and headlights flicker as I drive. My alternator was tested at a local, reputable shop at ~14.4 while running. There has been no battery light, no issues starting, the only problem is that the headlights and dash lights flicker. The low beams...

    Hi all, I am working on my brother's 2010 CRV. The issue is there is a strange noise coming from the serpentine belt area. I removed the belt and spun all the tensioners, alternator, ac compressor, etc and the only issue was a slight rubbing in the tensioner bearings. I just replaced the...

    hey there, 1st time poster. curious if there was a high amperage alternator for a 2001 crv? i figured maybe one off another honda might work if it has the same casing and pully, any ideas?
