  1. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    On our way home, when we parked to get some ice cream at a gas station off 77 in SC at a Pilot, the alternator died and the power steering light came on while the engine was running. Turned it off, turned the engine back on, won’t start! We had to put it in neutral and push it. Tried jumping it...

    I have a 2013 CR-V that needs a new battery about every two years. The last battery I replaced only lasted an additional week after adding distilled water and charging it. Would changing to the 120 amp alternator instead of the 105 amp alternator fix this problem without damaging the rest of...

    Hi all, My trusty Honda CR-V 2003 2.0 has turned into an electric car suddenly, and the range is very poor compared to charging time... While driving a month back, the charging light turned on, and the voltage dropped from the normal 14v+ to 12v - and started falling slowly. I have a digital...
  4. Diesel CR-V
    Hi all! As some of you may know I have a 2005 Honda CRV 6 speed manual transmission, the 140 HP version. Just last week, my alternator gave out. Bad timing (as always I guess), and we can't afford the garage visit. So what did we do? Yes, we decided to DIY it! Good idea, were it not that the...

    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 Everyone, I have a 2006 Honda CRV with 215K Miles. For a while now the Interior and Exterior lights have started to flicker. New battery about 8 months ago. It also has the original alternator. Exterior(Mostly meaning Headlights) Interior( Mostly all lights). Using a multi meter I...
  10. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    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...

    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...
  12. 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?
  14. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    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...
  16. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    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?
  17. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi i'm searching on how to remove and replace alternator on 2009 CRV instructions are all over the place, Haynes says to remove wire connectors remove bolts and remove from vehicle... someone else has the power steering pimp up and away removing radiator brackets bending radiator in order to...
  18. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hi, I'm a Subaru guy who ventured into the CR-V world and I rather enjoy the change. I bought 2004 a few months ago and have been driving it. However, the alternator started quietly howling and my overly paranoid instincts kicked in. Fast forward to yesterday. I had the alternator and PS pump...
  19. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Have an 03 5 speed. I've looked into replacing the alternator. Some people haven't needed to remove the radiator some people have. I plan on replacing the starter as well on my crv (Get a grinding noise on startup a few times). Will the alternator be just as accessible without the intake...
  20. Performance Modifications
    Hey guys, I was wondering if there is any viable option to upgrade the alternator. Right now I have a aftermarket touch screen/DVD head unit, an amp running all the speakers, and recently added aftermarket fog lights. With a load I can tell it struggles a bit. I have read before that the pcm...
