  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    As the title says, I am wondering if anyone out there can help me out with a recommended mechanic in the Salinas, CA area? Specifically, to diagnose/repair my 07 ex-l w/nav's battery light/now-dead battery? I know there are a variety of various issues that it could be, but I've got no real...
  2. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hey, I have a 2008 honda CRV, and recently (past two months), the battery light has been coming on when I am driving. I have replaced the alternator twice, I have a new battery install (tested to be in good condition as of yesterday), and the ELD is working fine. I did a voltage drop test from...
  3. Battery, Starter, Alternator & Related Issues
    I have been driving my car almost every day, and my battery read 11.98 earlier today when I measured it. Is this likely an indication that my battery is faulty or the system has parasitic draws on it? How often should I have to drive and to keep the battery fully charged for a CRV? What is a...
  4. Battery, Starter, Alternator & Related Issues
    Hey All, I am working on a 2008 honda CRV 4WD. I'm a bit stuck on this job I am currently working on. Two weeks ago, my alternator's diode and voltage regular tested negative. As a result, I changed the alternator to a new one. While driving after the job was done, my radio kept switches from...

  6. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    Hello there. New to this forum. I have a 2018 CR-V Touring AWD which is my second CR-V and sixth Honda. Shortly after purchasing it new, I took it to the dealer to tell them that my rain sensing wipers didn't sense rain -- they just functioned like any other intermittent wipers whether it was...
  7. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    Hello! I started having troubles today with my 2017 CR-V, which when I went to start it had complete electrical failure. I had to manually unlock doors and then jump the car. I drove it for about an hour and a half with no issues (though I did notice some potentially weird behavior from the...
  8. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hey guys, So I lost my key about six months ago. Had a new one made, then FOUND my old key. The other day I accidentally grabbed my old key and put it in the ignition and when I turned it the car didn’t turn over. I quickly realized it was the old key and probably had an old microchip that...
  9. CR-V Hybrid
    During Covid, we are not driving as much as usual, so would like to use a battery tender to keep the 12-volt battery fully charged. I have a CTEK MSX 5.0 battery tender which I use on other vehicles. I have a 2021 CR-V Hybrid EX-L. 1. Is there any reason not to use a battery tender on the CR-V...
  10. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    My battery in my 2017 Touring died after about 4 years so I had AAA replace it. They installed a 51R battery with 450 CCA. After install though my warning lights for ACC, Road departure, and Brake System have gone on and stay on on the dash. I’ve driven it about 30 miles since and no change to...
  11. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    With a brand new battery, On the first start of the day, CRV cranks very slowly like the battery is almost dead. After the first start, it always starts exuberantly and normally. Charging system is charging normally. Again, this is with a brand new battery. Three batteries all tested and...
  12. Gen 5: 2017-2022 (UK 2018-2023) CR-V
    Hi, I'm confused about the replacement battery size for my 2017 CRV Touring AWD (Canadian model). All of the online battery finders come up with 51R, which is what I see in this forum. However the 51R group size is 5 inches wide, while my existing battery (31500-TBA-A01) is 6 3/4 inches wide...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
