  1. AC Compressor Failed - Again

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Just a bit of click bait there. It is the second failure of an AC compressor in this vehicle with second compressor lasting around 130K before dying. The first on died around 64K and Honda picked up the tab. This one gave up its ghost this past weekend going out with a scream and a little pop...
  2. Radar failed on 2018 Touring

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Driving at 65 mph in wet snow today (road surface only wet at the time). Warning buzzer went off saying radar had failed with all safety features disabled. Idiot lights illuminated for every every thing. Got home and found front grill frozen. I wasn't doing anything stupid. It was like a rain...
  3. 2014 3 dash alarms, lights stuck on, then cruse failed

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Yesterday the TMPS, anti-skid and steering alarms lit on the dash and tail lights stuck on. I disconnected the battery and, after a few minutes, reconnected it. The tail lights cleared but the dash alarms remained on. I made an appointment with the dealer for this morning. On the way in the...
  4. Failed Torque Converter Seal at 33k miles

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    What would cause a torque converter seal on a 2017 CR-V to start leaking at just 33,000 miles? I went to the dealer for an oil change and handful of warranty items to get repaired (auto high beam issues, drivers side window issues, rattling in the dash, funny smell from the oil and center...
  5. 2008 Cr-V Automatic transmission solenoid crimp failed, can I take off the assembly?

    Maintenance and Service
    My car was in an accident, engine, transmission, and suspension weren't harmed, except that the radiator pushed one of the transmission solenoids off the crimp. These are part numbers 28260-PRP-014 I dont know if it's the poor design of these parts, of they are meant to be break-away like...
  6. Power Steering failed while driving. Hit curb - Honda says not their fault

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All, First post and unfortunately not a happy one. I'm hoping someone here can guide me in the right direction. I used to be a member of a Mustang forum and they had a Ford contact to help with any issues that aren't being addressed at the dealer/mechanic. Hoping this forum has something...

  9. New owner. Need advice on failed A/C compressor

    Problems & Issues
    My girl friend just bought a 2005 CR-V. The previous owner said she had just had the A/C fixed last summer but now that it's starting to warm up we noticed the A/C doesn't work and I found that the compressor is not working. I just found out that this is a common problem and an expensive one...
  10. AC failed, recharge didnt fix the problem (2010)

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, It's been very hot recently. The AC failed this morning. Fan still works, but it blows hot air. I took it to a local place to be recharged, and they filled it with refrigerant, but it was still blowing hot. Given these symptoms, can anyone guess what is the most likely problem? Thanks

    Problems & Issues
    driving down the road and suddenly the engine would just die. four or five attempts and it would start up fine and run fine. 5 minutes later, same thing. and again. i started to recall this was exactly what happened about a 100K miles ago, when i'd found out there was a recall on the...
  12. My 2014 VTC Actuator failed

    Problems & Issues
    I bought my Honda CR-V EX-L 2.4L engine in December of 2013. In February 2014 it made this aweful sound I had never heard before. As there was snow on the ground I thought it could've been ice on the belt. A few days later it was 60 degrees out and made the noise again. I immediately looked...
  13. 98 CRV failed emissions

    Problems & Issues
    Hi Guys wonder if anyone can help. My fathers CRV 1998 just failed the MOT (here in the UK) on emissions at 9%. I changed out the Llamda and the Catalytic converter which has improved things to 5% but still way to much. Car drives well and no MIL light up on the dashboard indicator. All the...
  14. Brakes failed in snow and unusual slipping in the road

    Problems & Issues
    I bought my 201l2 Honda CRV EX in October 2012. Today morning (12/01/2012) it was snowing and I took out the car on Road. I applied the brakes to slow down the car in the traffic signal, but my brakes didn't work. Fortunately, there was no car ahead of me and it was a green light. After sometime...
  15. 2000 CRV exhaust B-pipe flange failed -- need gasket?

    Maintenance and Service
    At the end of August 2012 the flange on the end of the B-pipe rusted off, and the muffler swung down, though fortunately doesn't touch the ground and didn't break the bottom of the bumper. It's sorta odd that the B-pipe flange fails before the pipe rusts through. At first I was going to go get...
  16. 2007 - Power Door Lock Actuator Failed - 2nd Time

    Problems & Issues
    Some have reported this. Is Honda doing anything about it? If you unlock the doors, all 4 doors will unlock as normal, then one door will by itself re-lock. You can look at the door lock switch near the interior door handle and watch the switch move. This is with the car not moving or...
  17. Failed Remote locking transmitter

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2008 UK spec EX model, which has interior ultra-sonic alarms fitted. Just recently, my remote key transmitter failed - battery problem. The key will manually unlock the car, and start the engine - but the alarm is triggered. Handbook says that alarm can ONLY be turned off by the...

    Problems & Issues
    I drive my 2003 (bought Jan 2003) CRV to 176K miles before I trade in to the Honda for another new 2012 CRV. What gave way: * Door will not remote lock anymore. I hear this click noise but it will not lock * Annoying OBD code about emission. It comes on and off. When it goes off, I go and...
