  1. Trouble Starting 2006 CR-V, even with new battery

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I recently picked up a used 2006 CR-V 4WD with 112,000 miles. It's been great, but in the past month I've had some starting issues, especially now that the weather is colder. It wasn't starting one morning, but I was able to get a jump. Obviously my first thought was bad battery, so I...
  2. 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...

  5. New 2019 CR-V Touring AWD, on 2nd battrey, it's dead as the first

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Is there a issue with these? I decided to keep calling Honda Roadside instead of jumping it myself. One tow driver thought the FOB's were too close so we moved them to the back of the house. New battery still died. Is there a known phantom drain? Dealer told me to buy a trickle
  6. Yet another new 2019 CR-V with a dead battery

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    My 2019 CR-V battery died at the airport after sitting there for 4 days. It was Chicago in winter but the temps weren't too dramatic. The CR-V had less than 1000 miles on it. Got a jump and drove 40 minutes to drop it off at the dealer for analysis. Couldn't find anything. Provided me with...
  7. A very nifty device to help prevent getting stuck with a dead battery.

    Other Cars, Trucks & Bikes
    I got one of these for my Van because I don't use it that often, only when I need to haul stuff or larger tools. Sometimes my battery ends up being dead and this has so far worked to prevent that from happening. It's a bit bulky and a bit expensive...

    Hi there and thank you for your help. 2009 with 2.2 Diesel engine Low beam lamp Type: D2S (Some sort of Xenon bulb) I discovered last week that the specific light intermittently goes off. My first instinct was that it is the bulb. Yesterday I made the effort to remove the bulb to see what...

    My 2018 CR-V has 700 miles on it so no issues, but want to be prepared... I've searched this forum, YouTube, and Honda videos without finding an answer. In the event of a dead car battery, how do I open the rear hatch, say, to get my jumper cables from the spare tire compartment?

    Problems & Issues
    I haven't found any definite solution in the interweb so I figured you guys might help me get this car running again ASAP. Used my wife's 2014 CRV LX to jump by my dead battery this morning with no issues. She drove to work and back home no problem. Now it's completely dead. Turn the key no...
  15. 2017 CRV - Dead Battery - Key Fob Left In Car - Cause?

    Problems & Issues
    We have a 2017 CRV touring model with all the options. We like leaving the key fob in the car so we don't have to look for it and our garage is safe. BUT Four days in the garage with the key fob left in the car and today it has a dead battery. I read that for some brands of cars leaving...
  16. 2002 CRV random electrical issues after recharging dead battery

    Problems & Issues
    I left the back window ajar for a few days and the battery died. Recharged the battery and the car runs fine. First thing I noticed is there is nothing on the clock/radio display and the radio won't turn on. I figured it was a fuse, so I replaced it. That wasn't it. Then I noticed the doors...
  17. 2015 EX-L Starts fine after all night, dead after a short stop. How to test drain

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I've read a few of these threads now. I've tried replacing the AC Relay as that seemed to be a common culprit. I'm frustrated at the cars unpredictable drain. It's going on 4 years now and has a small battery but the dealer claimed it tested ok. I was thinking of just replacing it. I've heard...
  18. Dead battery and possible red security light blinking

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Tried to start my daughters new 2013 Honda CRV and battery was dead. The last use was when my wife drove 2miles day before to work. The only light or thing on was the red blinking light above the CD slit ( security light). Could this light be the drain and if so what can be done the battery...
  19. Dead Battery /Jumping Question

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    With so many diff answers on google I want to ask a basic but needed question. CRV 2011 one roof light interior left on for exactly 48 hours. Battery went dead. If the battery is 12 months old and car alternator is new as well, shouldnt it have handled that drain or is this not realistic...
  20. 2018 CRV dies (dead battery) after a week of no driving - normal?

    Problems & Issues
    I travel a lot on business, at least a couple times a month, for anywhere from 2 to 8 days. I leave my car locked in an unheated garage behind my house. I live in the Chicago area. For my old car, a 2002 Honda CRV-EX, this was never an issue. Come home, get in the car, start it, go. For my new...
