  1. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Has anyone done a relay/diode mod to make the low beam and fog lights come on with the High Beam? I found a tutorial for an older model, but I don't know if it'd work the exact way for mine. I'd also like to make it where the Fogs are able to come on with the parking lights. I've done this...
  2. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    OK, this one is new to me. Has anyone else experienced this? This morning it was chilly, like 45* F chilly so I turned on the heat & heat came out of the top, center Left vent & ice cold air came out of the top center Right vent?! It was so cold I thought the AC was on but I checked & it wasn't...

    Hello, this is my first post here. Long time lurker on this forum. I bought a brand new 2018 CR-V EX-L AWD last November. I've had the car for about 5 months and have approximately 1700 miles on it. When it reached 500 miles, it developed a strange whistling wind noise at highway speeds (70+...

    I'll have owned my Honda CR-V for 7 years in a few months. She's in for an oil change/tire rotation today but they told me I would need to get spark plugs at 7 years (it's 7 years or 100,000k miles the dealer said and she's at about 50k miles this fall). I try to be good about maintenance and...
  6. Problems & Issues
    So My car has been living at the dealer, I had it almost a year and I have about 14k mi on it. As of right now it needed a new CPU, fuel injectors, a few gaskets. This can't be normal? I know it's being covered under warranty but seems like an awful lot to go wrong? I took it in because one...
  7. Accessories
    I bought a used 2016 CR-V EX-L in excellent condition last December and I've been trying to decide if I want to get Weathertech floorliners for it or not. Generally everything I've read has been positive, but I've read quite a few negative comments about the front passenger liner slipping...
  8. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I’m new to the site and new to CR-Vs, and I’d like to know what is the recommended service manual and which is the best LED headlight replacement. Oh and where can I find the paint code? Harrison 08 EX-L AT AWL (Hilary’s Bane)
  9. Problems & Issues
    My Bluetooth connection seems to get worse and worse everytime my phone gets an update. My phone (Moto G5 plus) doesn't sync anymore and the car's touchscreen doesn't match what's actually playing most of the time. I called Honda today and was told that as my phone's software updates, it becomes...

    . Will be taking delivery of recently purchased 2014 CRV EX-L AWD in 2-3 weeks. Since no vehicle is perfect, what DIY mods do you recommend? I'm thinking: - Better front headlights - replacing factory weak bulb 9003 system. - Might install 20mm or 30mm lift kit - due to my north regions...

    The rear windows in the 3rd gen are tinted. Offhand, does anyone know what tint percentage these are, and what color? With upcoming travel out west later this year, I want to see about possibly getting the two front driver's door windows tinted to match. Also, how is the tint applied in the...

    Hello friends. 2010 EX-L 4wd no nav. The issue is that HVAC air is not being directed to the center vents regardless of setting. The blower is operating, air is at appropriate temperature based on the setting. Cabin dust filter has been replaced with no difference in operation. I replaced the...
  13. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hey all! I looked through a bunch of threads on this forum and am still in question of my vehicle's capabilities to tow. In May I am moving from Michigan to Boulder Colorado. I am taking my bedroom with me, and that is about it. So king-sized bed, two IKEA floor storage units (25 lbs each)...

    HI all My first post so here it goes: I love my 2018 CRV Ex-L but was wondering on the remote start. I have to be within 100' of it to start it remotely. Has anyone done anything to increase the Honda Standard FOB, or if you added something to do it? I see there are a few options I see from a...

    I just purchased a 2010 CR-V EX-L and I am trying to locate the physical location of the power window relay (not the fuse). I would like to remove the relay and put a jumper in so that the power windows always work. I have been doing the internet search thing and found this site: (removed...
  19. Problems & Issues
    While I was in my garage, I pushed the button to raise the tailgate on my 2017 CR-V EXL. As the tailgate was raising, I quickly realized I had not pulled into the garage far enough and the tailgate was about to hit the garage door. I was standing next to the vehicle, so I quickly applied direct...

    Hello, I purchased a factory OEM replacement for the amp. I have the 7 speaker + sub + external amp model (EX-L with Navi). I know the factory amp is located slightly below and behind the gear shift. Can someone tell me how to access the factory amp? I can’t seem to remove the panel/trim that’s...
