  1. Frozen windshield washer fluid

    Problems & Issues
    My windshield washer fluid wouldn’t pump out. Service department said it was frozen. Thawed it out and put new washer fluid in. Now it is frozen again. Service department said it just needs to thaw out. It is near 0 degree weather here in Michigan. Is anyone else having this problem? This has...
  2. display stuck in on adjust clock

    Problems & Issues
    I have a new 2015 CRV (5,000 miles); I think it is an LX but in any case it is the basic model. The display is frozen on the menu screen, highlighting "adjust clock". When I put the car in reverse, the backup camera live view does show but in drive or park the display defaults to adjust...
  3. 2006 CRV has frozen washer fluid

    Problems & Issues
    My wife accidentally bought the summer blend (+32°) washer fluid and apparently it froze solid. It's been at or below 0° here this week. I have a garage but it's not heated so i doubt that parking it inside will help much although I intend to try that when she gets home again. Driving for a half...
  4. Frozen Tensioner

    Problems & Issues
    I'm trying to replace the Serpentine belt on my 04 CRV. I can't get the tensioner to release. I'm pulling on the wrench towards the front of the car and it won't budge. I sprayed it up front and back and will try again tomorrow. If this thing won't release is it possible to remove it with the...
  5. Side windows frozen shut from ice

    Problems & Issues
    Is there anything to apply to the window channel to prevent this from happening? I'm not talking about heavy ice, just below freezing weather after a rainstorm.
  6. Frozen door locks

    Problems & Issues
    I have 3 CRV's, 1998, 1999, 2000. Every year when it gets cold (under about 20 degrees F), I have to battle to get doors unlocked in the cold mornings. It was around 12-20 out today and I spent well over an hour trying to unlock both front doors on my 2000 CRV. I had to crawl in the back...
  7. Removing frozen bleeders

    Problems & Issues
    I have used pneumatic impact wrenches of various sizes and peak torque in the past to remove stubborn fasteners. They either remove the screw or break it. A friend is having problems removing a bleeder screw on his Honda. He maintains that whether you use a constantly increasing torque, using...
  8. Frozen locks in winter 2001 CR-V

    Problems & Issues
    This has been a recurring problem for me over the years. Is there any solution for this problem? I am only 5' 3'' and enter through the back hatch, start the vehicle, then use pliars to open all of the locks. What a pain in the butt. And YES, I tried to open the locks manually from the...
