  3. 2007 EX 4WD - Charging System Issues (not alternator or battery)

    Problems & Issues
    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...

  5. Where would you locate a wireless charging pad?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I'm seriously considering having a Alpine ILX-107 installed to be able to access CarPlay without plugging in my phone. I'd also like to have a wireless charger installed to complete the wireless theme! I definitely don't want to block an AC vent like a lot of mounts do. Any thoughts on how...
  6. DIY Wireless charging pad?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I really hate how the CRV is one of the only Honda's that don't come with a factory wireless charger. Are there any good DIY wireless charging pads that anyone has used?
  7. USB Charging

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi, looking to get a Used 2015 CRV and would like to use MirrorLink with my Samsung S6, but with further reading have seen that the USB ports which the phone will connect to won't supply enough charge (just 0.5A). Is this correct, and if so, has anyone found a way around it, e.g connecting...
  8. Charging Voltage too low - 2012 CRV-EXL

    Maintenance and Service
    My 2012 CRV-EXL has an alternator/diode issue (I think). If I let the car sit for a few hours, the resting battery voltage is 11.6-11.8 volts. Starting the car in the morning the voltage quickly goes to 14.0 - 14.3 volts. All good at this point, however. After driving for awhile and especially...
  9. 2012 charging system question

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Charging systems used to be so simple. Now, dang algorithms control it, and kids keep walking on my lawn. As someone with a 2012 (bone stock; no electrical add-ons) with the dreaded no-start-without-warning syndrome despite repeated software updates, upon advice from my Honda dealer's...
  10. USB ports in armrest not charging

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Has anyone been having any trouble with the usb ports in the armrest not maintaining a constant charge for devices (i.e. cellphones). Once plugged in the phone begins charging, but within a few minutes the charging stops. The cord works with the socket charge ports so it shouldn't be the...

  13. Dealers charging more than List Price for parts . . . is this condoned by Honda?

    Dear Honda:
    Hello, Just had some work done on my CR-V at the local dealer, and when I received the initial quote, I noticed the price for a key part was $30 more than List price ($130ish List; $160ish was dealer price) and asked why. I printed out a Honda Parts pricing page from the web when I went to...

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Anyone have a towing setup where you are charging the trailer battery from the CRV? If so, how did you get it set up? If not, how do you charge your trailer's battery other than shore power or a generator?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi. I have a 2015 CR-V EX and have ordered the set of cables ($100) needed to get the iPhone/Honda Nav app to display on the 7" screen. I think the cable set consists of 3 cables but it has not yet arrived. To anyone who has ordered this cable set, do the included cables provide power to the...

    Okay, so among a couple other problems, I'm dealing with a battery charging problem... I thought it was the alternator, but after doing some more research, I don't know if it is/isn't the problem. I had the alternator tested, on the car, at Advance Auto. It was displaying 11.9V, which I...
