  2. Headlights dim when a/c on

    When the a/c compressor turns on, my headlights dim. No other problems or issues. When the compressor turns off, they brighten back up. Battery is less than 2 years old, terminals are clean and tight. Where to start?
  3. Installing auto dim mirror in EX?

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I notice there is a lot of stuff around the rear view mirror already, is it pre-wired to install an auto dimming mirror or would there be more work involved than just swapping the mirrors out?
  4. 2017 CR-V Head Unit won't dim / firmware update

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Honda - The head unit in my CR-V EX-L began registering false touches and stopped being able to dim. Lap 1 - My dealer did something with the software that took about 2 hours. That didn't really help. lap 2 - Then they kept it overnight and did some in depth investigation. The tech...
  5. 2017 CRV-EXL Auto Dim Headlights not working - been to the dealer once

    Problems & Issues
    The auto dim function worked the first couple times I drove it at night, but doesn't do it anymore. I can use the brights using the steering column lever. Last weekend, on a long trip in the daytime, the auto dimming warning indicator suddenly appeared on the dash. Stayed on until I stopped...

    [FONT=Arial Black]Everything is working fine but suddenly the screen (2017 Touring Navi) goes dim and can hardly see. If I restart the car, it is not dim anymore. Any ideas what to do?

    When I turn the knob on the front dash window to dim the display the settings are binary, either very dim or very bright. Is there no way to set it in between?
  8. Touring LED headlights. Disappointingly dim.

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I feel like the headlights in my '17 Touring V are really quite dim. I've had HIDs in a couple Acuras, and I absolutely loved the way they lit up the road as if it was daylight in front of the car. I was expecting similar performance from the LEDs, but it just seems like they don't put out...
  9. Touring Center Display Screen Won't Dim

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I need some collective wisdom here on my new Touring model. I noticed when in reverse at night the camera display is all grainy and washed out, really hard to see details well. I thought maybe it was locked on "day" on the display (you used to be able to do that) but when I press the day/night...
  10. Is there a way to disable clock dim on gen1 rd1 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I finally fixed my clock (which is a common problem almost on all gen1 rd1 CRV's). However the orange plastic that comes on the clock display is very thick. Also there is the original automatic dim: When I turn on the lights the clock dims itself. So, when I turn my lights on daytime, the...
  11. Display Too Dim

    Community Help
    Got a 2016 a few days ago. Now the display is unreadable- indicator lights and screen for backup camera, whether I am in full sun or not. Wasn't an issue the first couple days. The manual doesn't help. Went through the menu on the steering wheeling to see if I can brighten them. No luck. Thanks!

  14. 2015 CRV Daytime Running Lights bright on bottom, dim on sides and top

    Exterior
    Hi folks, can anyone tell me how the 2015 CRV daytime running lights behave? On mine the bottom row is very bright and can be seen from far away, the top and outer sides are very dim and can't be seen from 20' away. Is that normal? Thanks for any help. OB
  15. Dim the dashboard lights at night?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hi, is there a way to dim the dashboard lights at night? I am finding them way too bright for long-distance night driving on the motorway and contribute to the strain in my eyes. If only I could dim them by about 50% or something, it would be much more comfortable. Any ideas?
  16. 2005 CRV double dim trim

    Mobile Electronics
    I replaced the factory stereo on my 05 with a Pioneer double din. I have a gap between the radio and the factory console, is there a certain kit that works pretty good to close this gap? I looked on ebay but most kits are generic and not CRV specific
  17. Headlights Too Dim

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I leased a 2012 CRV and loved it except for the headlights which were terrible and I drive in a very rural area often in snow so we bought some brighter bulbs which weren't much better. Fast forward to now and we have a 2014 leased CRV and the lights are not improved. I don't want to...

  19. Headlights won't work on dim, work fine on bright

    Problems & Issues
    I'm forced to drive with my brights on since they don't work on dim. All the running lights are fine on dim, just not the headlights. I've read all the posts and found no solutions. I checked all fuses and they're fine. I swapped relays with the same result. I tried a brand new light and...

    All of my right side rear lighting, stop/turn/tail/reverse, are all much dimmer than the left side. I have noticed this on several other 2002-2004 CR-V's as well. I am planning to test the voltage to the harness......anyone know what causes this? See this link to see the difference in...
