  2. Battery draining quickly

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    In July the AC in my 2007 CRV EX stopped working and now the battery seems to be draining really quickly. Bought a new battery a couple months ago and at a recent oil change at a dealership was told the battery was weak. After researching the issue I found that it may be the AC fuse relay. Is...
  3. Battery draining on 2016 CRV after short trips

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I bought a CRV EX 2016 a year ago.

The battery has drained several times since and more frequently lately. One morning it...
  4. Battery draining when tailgate is left open.... is there a workaround or fix?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have learned that if I leave the tailgate open for an extended period of time it will drain my battery. Apparently that keeps the computer in an awake mode so it drains the battery. Does anyone know of a workaround or fix so I can keep my car open and not to drain the battery? The...

  7. 2007 CR-V Battery Draining Problem

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have a 2007 CR-V that I bought used back in 2012. It's a great car, but I've had to replace the battery like every 9 months! I've done some Google searches and some folks seem to blame this on the A/C Relay. Has anyone else had this experience? I've got nothing added to the vehicle to draw...
  8. Loosened wrong bolt when draining oil - 2011 CR-V

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I wasn't paying attention and I didn't have good lighting, so today I removed the center bolt of three on the bottom of the oil pan instead of the correct bolt (drain plug) which is on the driver's side. Can't believe I did that. The bolt was tight, at least as tight as the drain plug, and...
