  1. Heating or cooling parameters when remote starting?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, (Gen 5)
    Upgraded to a new 2017 AWD Touring to enjoy all the latest features. I really like the remote start capability but I am frustrated by the vagueness of the manual regarding when the seat heaters or AC will be automatically activated. The manual just says "cold outside" or "warm outside"? I am the...

  3. 2006 CRV AC stops cooling sporadically in hot weather

    Problems & Issues
    First time this happened we took it to our local shop but it had started working again when we got there. They didn't know what could be the problem so they replaced the condenser fan. It has worked a few weeks, but we got another hot spell and it stopped cooling again yesterday. This...

  6. Radiator fan not engaging

    Problems & Issues
    The radiator fan is not turning on. It engages when the A/C is turned on, or even when I jumpered the leads to the radiator fan switch. Because of that, I assumed it was the fan switch, and replaced it. No dice. I'm baffled. Note: There are two fans, approximately equal, mounted to the...
  7. 2003 AC Blowing Warm Air/AC Compressor replaced 4 years ago

    Maintenance and Service
    Like many other people, my AC compressor "blew up"/shattered 4 years ago and it was approximately $1200 to replace (no help from Honda despite the class action suit). Since the replacement, the AC has been working fine (used May-Oct in Chicago) up until 2 days ago when it started blowing warm...

  12. Cooling Fan Issues?

    Problems & Issues
    I'm hoping to be able to find a little help here, because I've been unsuccessful when searching online. My wife uses a 2009 CR-V to deliver mail. It's been running hot at times and I've found that the fan on the driver's side doesn't come on. From looking at threads on here, for older models...
  13. What temp should cooling fan come on?

    Problems & Issues
    Yes, there are snippets of information on the forum but I can't find the exact answer to my problem...if i have one. I recently had a valve replaced on the 1997 old girl and they put a new radiator in (probably 'cos they broke all the bolts on the old one). I haven't really taken the car out...
  14. Cooling fan coming on and off

    I have a 2011 Honda CR-V Four Wheel Drive and I have noticed a couple of times when I have the car running and when I have been standing at the front of it I hear a fan coming on and off repeatedly. It's been -23 below and I can't even think that it could be a cooling fan. How could the engine...

  16. A/C issue: Black Death or Cooling Fan?

    Maintenance and Service
    The A/C on my 2003 CRV died suddenly while driving about 2 weeks ago on a pretty warm September day. The Honda dealer said this was an unfortunate problem in the earlier CRV's that involves replacing the entire A/C system due to the metallic debris being sucked throughout the system upon...

    Hi everybody. I am a new member to the site. Here's my ac issue. Everything works great at idle. While driving or at higher idle, the condenser cycles on for 1-3 secs and then off for 10-30.. The air gets cold momentarily. All fans/blowers function properly. The self diagnostics showed...
  18. AC radiator cooling fan runs constantly

    Problems & Issues
    Hi folks, I'm new to the forum, so I'm still learning how all this works. I have a 2011 CR-V. When the AC is on, the radiator cooling fan seems to run nearly all the time, at least when the vehicle is not moving. In cool weather the fan may turn off for several seconds before coming back on. Is...
  19. Purging the Cooling System of Air

    Maintenance and Service
    There has been lots of "ink" regarding the necessity of purging the cooling system of air pockets after a coolant change. This is critical especially in newer Hondas as they have Reverse Flow cooling systems...that is, the coolant flows from the bottom of the radiator to the top. On these...
  20. 2003 Cooling Fan

    Problems & Issues
    So, I had my wife and daughter drop off our 2003 CRV LX (81K) at the dealer today to address the driver's window wiring recall. Of course, they did their multi-point inspection. My wife calls to let me know the SA told her the cooling fan is inoperable - $679:eek:! This is in addition to the...
