  1. Recent '06 EX purchase - questions.

    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...
  2. 2016 OEM battery type

    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...
  3. Fuel Filter Change Experience 2001 CR-V

    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...
  4. 2009 Honda CRV EX 2.2 DIESEL - Slow Battery Drain With SAT NAV Glitch*

    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...
  5. Battery size 51 hard to find?

    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...
  6. Marvelous Mystery Issue : Car won't start - electrical

    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...
  7. 2006 CRV not starting

    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...
  8. '07 Tries to Start without Key When Jumping It

    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...
  9. 2014 lx hard start

    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...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All, My apologies for the drama but I'm so frustrated by my car. I bought a new 2019 Honda CR-V EX AWD in NJ this past weekend and I have had trouble starting the car twice in the past 3 days. I had to jump-start it twice, before work on one day, and after work on a separate day. I always...

    Problems & Issues
    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...
  12. Battery depleted when car was left running

    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...
  13. Battery Replacement - Dealer, other or DIY?

    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...

  17. Another Dead Battery Victim (2018 CRV)

    Problems & Issues
    I purchased a 2018 CRV, EXL 1.5L in September 2018. Within a couple of weeks of owning the vehicle, I decided to add a dash cam which is tied to a circuit that is powered with the engine off. I never had any dead battery issues until December. Around December, my car sat in the garage for about...
