  1. 2018 Honda LX Defrost issues!!!

    Problems & Issues
    I have the lx with the 2.4l engine so no issues related to lack of heat as with turbo models. My dash will blow hot air, I just cant keep the windows defogged in winter unless "front defogger" button is pressed. I have tried every combination of modes and auto temperature. The circulate button...

  3. AC Comes On With Defrost?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    I have a '98 AT, AWD, LE with 190+K and when I turn the knob to defrost the AC comes on. Is it supposed to do that if the temp knob is in the red?
  4. Front Windshield cracked right above Defrost vents due to extreme cold maybe?

    Problems & Issues
    Good Day, It has been a brutal winter in Minnesota (like most of the Midwest and Northeast). I just noticed that my windshield has a crack running parallel with the dash right along with the Defront Vents point to the windshield. My theory is that on one of these past days when it was ~15...
  5. 2002 passenger mirror does not defrost anymore

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, When we turn on the mirror defrost the driver side works, but the passenger side does not. They share the same fuse so that's not the problem. Everything else works fine. Corner garage suggested a new mirror (not the entire plastic housing) for about $100. My concern that it's not the...

  9. I want to disable the a/c so at least the defrost works?

    Problems & Issues
    Hey there guys/gals, I have the a/c issue thing going on with my 2003 crv exl. I really don't use it much for cooling,(maybe 1 month out of the year), but I do use the defrost mode quite a bit. Right now the compessor tries to cut in every 4 or 5 seconds and almost stalls the vehicle out when I...
  10. Turning off forced AC when in defrost mode

    Problems & Issues
    Is there a way to turn off the ac compressor when you are in defrost mode? My AC turns on automatically when I hit the defrost button. This is for a 2007 CRV. Thanks in advance. Nevermind, I guess you have to live with this problem on a CRV >= 2007.
  11. A/C Always On when defrost

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Does anyone know if there is a way to hack the air condition system so it doesn't come on when you choose one of the two defrost settings? Eventhough the a/c light doesnt come on, the system does actually turn the compressor on to help defrost windows, which causes more gas to burn. I know...
