  1. Smart entry does not recognize hands

    Problems & Issues
    The smart entry has suddenly stopped working after 1.5 years on our 2017 Touring (even though the batteries are new). Perimeter lock works walking away no problem, and it beeps like it's supposed to. All the functions on the key FOB work... However, when I approach the vehicle and put my hand on...
  2. Can't pair phone with crv hands free

  4. hands free bluetooth speakerphone and magnetic car holder

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2007 CRV. I'm looking to make hands free calls in the car and looking for a car holder for my cellphone (samsung S9). I'm looking at cd mount magnetic holders. But I'm not sure if this will block items on my radio. And I'm also not sure if the magnets will be able to hold the phone...
  5. 2014 CR-V EX-L, no Nav, Bluetooth / HandsFreeLink / HFL not working at all

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    2014 EX-L AWD without Nav. Bluetooth used to work. Now it doesn't. Video link should show the problem. Previously paired phones don't connected. "Phone" buttons on the steering wheel don't do anything. This isn't a phone pairing problem. This happened shortly after charging a pair of cheap...
  6. Tailgate Hands Free Quits Working After Hitch Installation

    I just had a trailer hitch put on my 2017 CRV and the handsfree control quit working. Up until now the kick to open has been working fine. I had a long discussion with my Honda Service department. The sensor is a radar sensor (not optical) located under the rear bumper cover. You can't see...
  7. Please get rid of the LKAS warning when you take your hands off the wheel.

    Dear Honda:
    LKAS is awesome with adaptive cruise control. My only peeve is that I have to touch the steering wheel every few seconds or else I get the warning message to put my hands on the wheels. My 2017 CRV drives flawlessly on straight roads and makes curves perfectly. On long highway drives, it is...
  8. Hands Free Tailgate Relocation and Trailer Hitch

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I just installed the Draw-Tite Class III hitch on my CRV. I am very impressed with the quality. I read that the hands free tailgate should still work, but I am guessing it is only on the Class II. I need to install the relocation kit for the hands free sensor. Have any of you done this? Any...
  9. Tailgate Hands Free Access stopped working

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    A few weeks ago the tailgate stopped responding to my kick / hands free access. I know it can be hard to open, and it did take me a while to get it right, but it had been working very well for a few months and then all of the sudden it stopped. Is it possible I disabled this somehow? Does...
  10. Improving the hands free mic in a 2015 EX-L

    Mobile Electronics
    Just like for most people, my 2015 EX-L has awful hands-free audio. Has anyone found a way of replacing, improving or bypassing the pair of mics on the surface plate of the stock Mitsubishi NR-244UH radio? I've looked at photos of the backside, but there don't appear to be open connections...

  12. Hands free tailgate?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'm about to take delivery of a '17 White/Black EX-L Navi. Waiting on it to arrive at local dealer. I had looked at all the models, and from a value perspective, that model suited my needs the best. The cost difference to jump to a Touring was just higher than I wanted given the added...

I will post a pic in a bit. Only thing wrong is the trunk latch is...
  14. Aftermarket Stereos and Hands Free Calling

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi all- Looking to upgrade my receiver with hands free calling. The majority of units come with built in bluetooth mics which in my experience (10 years ago) have been poor quality. As in the person on the other end always has trouble hearing me when the car is in motion. For those who own...
  15. Hands Free Problem

    Problems & Issues
    My hands free link keeps going into "private mode" and I am unable to get it out. There's nothing in the owner's guide and nothing can be found on the display. Also, my phone book will not transfer from my Galaxy S4. Since I'm leaving on vacation in a couple of days, it would be nice to have...
  16. Hands Free Link Questions.

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    My wife's Malibu will only connect one phone at a time via Bluetooth. My wife's is setup at the primary so when we're both in her car only her phone pairs. In the CR-V Touring we both seem to connect and the manual says that up to six can be paired. Is that six at once...and why? It doesn't...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, Took ownership of my 2008 CRV, its an EX model (europe) with leather, satnav, rear camera, sunroof, most of the options I can think of but I am not sure whether it has bluetooth or not.

  20. Does my CRV have bluetooth hands free

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, new CRV owner, bought it today, great car, it's an ex with leather satnav reverse camera, sunroof. So it has all the extras but I can't figure out if it has bluetooth hands free. It's got the buttons for it and a microphone in the roof (but could that be for voice recognition). Anyway...
