  1. Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 with AT. The radiator fan was no longer working and overheating became a problem. So considering the work to replace one fan I decided to go ahead and replace both while I was in there. It seemed to be a very straight forward process, however, upon completion, the fans work...
  2. Problems & Issues
    Hi there! My experience with my 99CRV has been great, it's 173k mile, changed timing belt and water pump around 90k, and its temperature gauge never move during driving (always around 50%)...until today. It was 90F today and I drove with 2 passengers, uphill bumpy road for a long time with A/C...
  3. Problems & Issues
    I posted it earlier, but I think it was too much info, and that's why I wasn't able to get the answer I needed. So basically, I am replacing my condenser and radiator. And when I have the fans plugged in, I take a lighter to the fan switch to get it to the right temp, and when it's at the...
  4. Problems & Issues
    I recently hit my car into a pole, and have fixed virtually everything now. But after I hooked everything up, I found that the fans weren't turning on, even when the temperature gauge in the vehicle was about 4/5ths full/hot. And I have checked everything in the 'fan switch system', and can't...

    In winter the heater creates hot dry air,do we even need it dryer,well Honda seems to think that we do,In Auto or Manual mode the Ac and rad fans cycle on 2 times per minute, kept track fo 30 minutes. I can see the need to turn on the AC to dry or defrost the winshield but that should be my...

    Replaced the a/c compressor last month. A/c started acting up over the weekend. Sometimes it would cool, sometimes not. Took it back to mechanic. He said, "looks like your car was imported, or bought overseas. I tried to get your fans and they are coming up as foreign parts and costing a...
  7. Problems & Issues
    Hi, I have a 1998 cr-v and I have replaced the air conditioning radiator fan about a year ago by myself. Today I've noticed that it is making weird noises like metal scratching metal. I have disassembled it and found a small metal clip connected on one of its wings. I assumed that this is the...
  8. Problems & Issues
    I have a 1997 CR-V, the fan stopped working so I checked relay's which are fine, I tested the motor by shorting the fan at the fan switch and it works. I changed the fanswitch, and the sending guage unit but it still overheats, and even with the fan always on (shorted). I feel it's overheating...
  9. Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 Honda CR-V and mysteriously both the radiator and condenser fans both quit working at the same time. So if I'm stuck in traffic on a hot day the engine overheats and there's no way I can run the a/c at idle. I've check the fuses in the dash fuse panel and they are good, I check...
  10. Problems & Issues
    I have tested both fans, direct wired to 12v dc, both run. When the car+a/c is running the large fan is on. When the car–a/c is running the large fan is off. When the car is running, and I short the radiator-fan-switch-plug the large fan turns on. Leaving the car on, until up to...
  11. Problems & Issues
    Hi All! I love my 1998 Honda CRV. It is the best car I've owned ever! So here is my story, I'm curious to know if any of you have any feedback or ideas: I was whizzing along the junction between the Baltimore beltway and interstate 70 in pretty heavy traffic, and I noticed that the CRV was...
  12. Problems & Issues
    Looong time forum cruiser, first time post. Thanks to all for the great info on this forum! 2001 CRV - Both radiator fans have stopped working. Does anyone know what sensor(s) or relay(s) controls them, where it's located, and how to test?
  13. Problems & Issues
    Hi... new to the forum and new to CRV ownership. Needed a commuter car to drive to and from work, so bought my cousin's 98 CRV. He had the car sitting in his garage for about 2 years and I finally talked him into selling it to me. Had the car looked at by a mechanic and he only suggested...
  14. Maintenance and Service
    Just some helpful tips info. for the DIY owners. Got a '03 CRV that started overheating at idle and a/c cycling off/on excessively at idle. Found that both fans not working when a/c is running. Unplug connectors to the fans and ran 12v power straight to fans , Both dead! Use Test light on the...

    A limited edition Led Zeppelin Jeep Patriot is being made over in the UK. Limited details about it...but the story is here.
  16. Problems & Issues
    My 2001 CR-V runs great and does NOT overheat. The temperature guage never reads above the midway mark. BOTH fans will come on when I turn on the a/c. However, when the a/c is off, I NEVER see or hear the one that is dedicated to the radiator cooling (the one of the right) cycle on/off. It seems...
