  1. Remote start and air conditioner

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi When I remotely start my new Honda CRV 2018 the air conditioner does not come on? How do I get it to come on and I guess this would apply for winter time to for the heater as well? Please let me know how I get it to work while I’m away from the vehicle? Thank you Wendy

    Greetings & Introductions
    We are new to this and completely confused. :-) My wife and I bought our CR V last year in February and we fell in love with it before driving it off the lot. Everything was great until the hottest day of last summer when on a trip and at the snap of a finger, the air conditioner started...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My wife and I bought our CR V last year in February and we fell in love with it before driving it off the lot. Everything was great until the hottest day of last summer when on a trip and at the snap of a finger, the air conditioner started blowing hot air. Being somewhat knowledgeable about...
  5. 2007 Air Conditioner Electrical Question

    Maintenance and Service
    Air conditioning system has worked flawlessly since new with only one preventative servicing (about 5 years ago) in 11 years. Yesterday while highway driving during the course of the second leg of a two-day 700 mile trip, it suddenly starting blowing non-cooled air. I turned the air off and...
  6. Air conditioner cool time

    Maintenance and Service
    2015 Honda CR-V When using the air conditioner it usual takes anywhere from 2 to 4 miles for it to put out cold air. This is in 70 to 80 degree weather. After that initial cool down it works fine. Is this a usual trait for the CR-V? :uhoh3:
  7. 2009 Honda CR-V Air Conditioner not cooling when Idling

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2009 CR-V with only 43,000 miles. A few months ago the battery died and had to be jump started and then I got the battery replaced. I don't know if that has any thing to do with my problem, but ever since the AC does not cool when idling but works fine when driving at normal speeds. I...
  8. 2007 crv air conditioner intermittent

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    On two hot days greater than 90 degrees, AC stopped working. Then started working after about an hour of leaving it off. The second time it happened the ambient temperature readout stayed at 73 degrees until driving for 25 minutes the indicated temperature gradually creeped up to the actual...
  9. 04 Air Conditioner Stopped working

    Problems & Issues
    Slowly my A/C was getting less and less frigid over the past year maybe. Honestly I didn't notice it until someone else got in my car and mentioned it wasn't blowing that cold. I run it a lot... then all of a sudden this weekend no more cold or ever cool air. I figured I needed more freon so I...
  10. Poor air conditioner performance on hot day

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    The temperature was over 100 this weekend here in the bay area. I had the air conditioner running full but the temperature of the blowing was not very cold, especially compared to the temperature output my air conditioner in my 2004 CRV would be. What have been your experiences with the air...
  11. Help with 2009 Honda CRV Air Conditioner

    Problems & Issues
    My AC functions fine in the morning on the way to work (when its cooler outside), but when the outside temp is over 80 degrees, anytime the engine is over 2000 rpm it cycles way too frequently (5-10 seconds on, about a minute off) without cooling down much of anything. After about 5 minutes of...
  12. Air Conditioner Pulley Sheared Off

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    '98 CRV Timing belt changed in 8/13. Told by independent mechanic that Honda must've over tightened the bolt when replacing the pulley as it NEVER/EVER should shear off (unless an accident and there wasn't one). The pulley was just banging around inside the car and the belt flopping. Drive belt...
  13. Air conditioner scam

    Problems & Issues
    I just wanted to share an experience with my 2008 crv. The air stopped working, and after doing the usual diagnostics I couldn't figure it out and had a local, fairly reputable shop look at it. I asked them to check out the electronics to find out why the ac clutch wouldn't engage. Pressure was...
  14. 2012 AWD Air Conditioner Clutch Noise?

    Problems & Issues
    For the past few summers I've been getting a slight rattling noise when the AC is engaged and I first start to accelerate. A Honda service writer told me it's likely the Air Conditioner clutch and that it's normal for this vehicle. I only have about 3K worth of warranty left on my CR-V. Is this...
  15. 2008 CR-V Air Conditioner Stops Blowing Cold Air

    Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone, I have a 2008 CR-V that I bought about 2 years ago. I noticed the Air Conditioner is blowing cold air for maybe 15-20 minutes while driving and then it just starts blowing warm air. Of course, I got online and am reading terrible things about the compressor going out and costing...
  16. 2001 CRV Air Conditioner Sounds

    Problems & Issues
    When I turn on the AC in my recently-purchased 2001 CRV, there are three intermittent sounds: a rattle, a squeal (like a belt), and a hiss (like steam escaping through a small hole). I have done some basic research on this forum and Google, and apparently the CRVs from that era have a...
  17. 2010 crv air conditioner failure not covered...

    Problems & Issues
    My husband and I decided to buy a Honda because of the great reputation.... what a joke! During the first year, our skylight leaked, although they fixed it for a year... and is now leaking again. Now, I am on my 3rd battery! But.... the worst was our air conditioner failure. We went on a trip to...
  18. 2002 CR-V air conditioner blowing warm air

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I don't own a CR-V but I'm posting on behalf of a friend. Her CR-V is blowing air, but it's not cold. After some research i saw that there was a class action lawsuit for failing compressors? I haven't had a chance to look at her car yet - I do know how to diagnose whether or not the...
  19. 2009 Air Conditioner compressor

    Recalls, TSB's & Notices
    My wife recently has had some problem with the air conditioner on her CRV going out without warning. I checked the lines, pressure and everything seemed OK. So we called the dealer and he said that they would check it out, there has been a recall. He wasn't very specific with her regarding just...
  20. Air conditioner compressor woes

    Problems & Issues
    Help! I really love this car so when the air conditioner compressor went out on my 2004 CR-V I initially looked for another car. Not finding anything at all that I liked, I spent 4k at Honda to have it reparied in 2012. I had 98k on the car at the time so I did not qualify for even a partial...
