  1. 2019 CRV brakes on its own for no reason

    Problems & Issues
    6500 miles, 40 mph, no cars in front of me on a bright sunny day and car braked hard and the words "BRAKES" showed on the dash. Anyone else have this problem or know of a law firm that is suing HONDA for this problem which I guess was known back in 2015.
  2. Emergency Stop Signal - add on - anyone have this on their CRV

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I saw this in the UK and wondered if it's legal in the states - When you come to a quick stop all your lights in back flash 4 times (including your orange signal lights). Its a simple plug and play device you plug into your OBD port. With auto breaking it may prevent a rear end accident behind...
  3. Emergency Brake - NOT Parking Brake

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hello all, CRV 2018 EX. Is there an actual "Emergency Brake". I'm aware of the parking brake as well as the brake hold. Fortunately in my experience I've never had to use the emergency brake in the past, but going way back, this was actually taught in driving school. Has this gone away? If...
  4. Emergency latch if you're locked inside/no power/fob broken?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    A scary story in the news about a guy who was trapped in his 2006 car for 13 hrs until the neighbors found him and the fire dept. got him out. His key fob wasn't working and the electricity was dead, he wasn't able to unlock the doors from the inside...
  5. 2007 emergency break sticking

    Maintenance and Service
    I recently purchased a 2007 awd and the first time I applied the (pedal type) e-brake, it became stuck and would not release. After quite some time and effort, I was able to free it by setting and releasing the brake, but I can still hear it rub on the back left rotor, as if it was still...

  8. Emergency Braking

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    If a car or person jumps out in front of the vehicle is there an automatic braking system that will stop the vehicle? I've read a lot about adaptive cruise and lane keeping assist, but nothing about emergency breaking. Other car manufactures show that in their adds but Honda does not. Thanks, Bob
  9. Emergency 911 dialing using Bluetooth even when using Carplay?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The manual says that if you configure your phone using Bluetooth and you get in a crash with airbag deployment it will dial 911 which will send your GPS coordinates to the police. The manual also states in another section that if you have your phone plugged in and are using Carplay that...

  11. Emergency light and traction control lights won't go off

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2016 CRV EX. This morning when I started my car, the emergency brake light and the traction control light both came on and stayed on throughout my 20 minute commute. I called the oil place where I just had my fluids checked and refilled two days ago, and the man suggested my brake pads...

  14. Emergency brake/transmission

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, We live on a slight hill, and I have a family member that doesn't use the parking brake effectively. So when the vehicle is going into 'park', the weight of the car is being supported by the transmission.... and then the 'thunk' when it's put into 'drive' from 'park'. Can I expect...
  15. emergency brake

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    hello people; How many of you V owners use the E-brake? When My V was driven over by the original owner he did put it on. My driveway has a pitch to it but I've never used it unless I had a problem with my brakes on other cars. Of course if it was a standard I would use it more. I don't know...
  16. Emergency Brake

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hi Everyone, My V is 2013 EX. I recently discovered the brake light did not come on when I pressed the emergency brake pedal. I found the brake light work when I started the car. The brake light is on when the emergency brake is engaged in my previous Toyota. Is it the brake light on in...

    I have a 2003 CR-V with 15 inch wheels, running cheap crappy BFG Advantage T/A tires. I currently have them inflatitated to 38psi, hoping for a boost in gas mileage. I get around 21mpg now, but the handling could be described as a bit darty. I am wondering what would be the recommended tire...

  19. 2009 EXL 2wd Emergency Brake Stuck

    Problems & Issues
    Last night on the way home from dinner, our CRV began shuttering and smelled of burning brakes. Was able to limp her home and noticed the outside of the rim was fairly hot on the left rear wheel. This morning I jacked it up and sure enough the wheel would spin freely in reverse but would bind...
  20. Car won't start. Kinda emergency.

    Problems & Issues
    My friend was loading some stuff into his 2007 CR-V (US) last night and bumped the car, now it does not start. He needs the car asap, but all dealerships are closed today. What to do? He thinks it could be the emergency fuel cut-off switch or something like that.
