  1. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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...
  2. 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...
  3. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    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...
  4. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello there, recent convert here. Got a heck of a deal on an '06 EX that I'm working out some bugs on. Biggest thing I noticed so far is that sometimes when I get into the car, insert the key, and rotate to start - absolutely nothing happens. No dash lights, no noise, and I didn't specifically...
  5. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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...
  6. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I changed the fuel filter for the first time at 19 years and 222k miles. I was procrastinating since I thought it would be hard, but it's actually an easy part to change. I had to change the battery anyways, and figured I should change the fuel filter since I'd have extra room for tools and...
  7. Diesel CR-V
    Hi, We own a 2009 Honda Crv EX 2.2 diesel car for a year now. A couple of months back we've noticed the car battery went dead twice on us so we decided to invest in a new one. To our surprise 2 weeks later the new one went dead too! So we swapped the old battery (thankfully didn't get rid of...
  8. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    2004 CRV still hanging in there ... need to replace battery (no, it's not original!). Could do the install myself but having trouble finding sources of 51R size battery. The various big name sites are showing me no or maybe one "fits your vehicle" match. Is this size phased out? Is there some...
  9. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Here's a bit of a mystery: My 2006 CR-V suddenly won't start, but instead of making any normal dead-battery noises (like a clicking starter), all the needles in the instrument cluster flutter very slightly, but violently - enough to make a lot of noise. Even after I pull the key out, there's...
  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...
  11. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My wife has an 07 EX-L that had a problem with battery dieing. Had it and wiring replaced as previous owner installed battery improperly. Problem happening again, usually a quick jump starts it up. The last time this happened her car started turning over without a key as soon as I started my car...
  12. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Last week my wife found that her 2014 LX wouldn't start, seems like the battery had died after our daughter left a door open overnight in the garage. AAA checked it out, said the battery was okay (it's about 2 years old), and jumped it. We've been able to drive it fine since then, but it isn't...
  13. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Wife went to lunch yesterday. She came back to work, forgot to turn off the car and walked inside (cell phone distraction). Later in the evening (4 hours later), she came out and was not able to start the car. She called and I was puzzled as to what the cause was. Since I wasn't there...
  14. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    the battery on my 2016 CRV seems not to be retaining charge very well anymore and probably needs replacing. Is there any reason this can't be done outside of the dealer? Do they need to reset anything after the battery is changed? Will I lose any internal settings after the battery in...
  15. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi Received the following recall notice for my 2019 crv from Honda Canada. Did anyone receive something similar?
  16. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a CRV 2008 and yesterday in the morning all lights goes on, when I tried to star the engine. I turn off the engine and when i tried to start the vehicle again was dead. I test the battery and was damage then I bought a new one. I start the vehicle and test the alternator, the reading...

    Hello Everyone, I have a '98 CRV with 156,00 miles bought new. It has been great. Only back to the dealer twice, once for timing belt and once for rear dif oil change. Everything else just reg maintenance. My issue now is I leave it in the garage for thirty days and I return to a dead battery...
  20. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    My 2019 CR-V battery died at the airport after sitting there for 4 days. It was Chicago in winter but the temps weren't too dramatic. The CR-V had less than 1000 miles on it. Got a jump and drove 40 minutes to drop it off at the dealer for analysis. Couldn't find anything. Provided me with...
