  1. Missed factory connector for trailer hitch harness on a CRV ‘18

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    Hello, * I'm from Paraguay, South America. I decided to install the original Honda trailer hitch and harness. I bought both and on the weekend proceeded to the installation. With the trailer hitch I had no problems and I was able to follow the instructions step by step. When I try to...
  2. '98 To '01 Harness Adapter For CRV LX Radio?

    Mobile Electronics
    So I bought a very nice used '01 OEM radio and CD player for my '98 CRV LX thinking it would hook right up to the harness plug because it is same generation but it doesn't. Is there an adapter that will plug into the '98 harness plug and plug into the '01 radio/CD player? Honda dealership says...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hi guys I bought a fog light kit for my 2016 crv LX since it doesnt come with fog lights. The front covers are easy to pop off and installing new lights is easy, however I can't figure out where two power cables are supposed to go. First of all here is the link to the kit i bought...
  4. Curt C56370 trailer light harness

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    Just installed the Curt C56370 light harness. I did not see in the written instructions, or the installation video, a ground wire installation. I presume a separate ground wire is not necessary (grounding is thru the factory connector). Test light shows running, brake and signal lights all...
  5. Flexible harness body to drivers door 99 CRV

    Problems & Issues
    I am working on a million problems with the 99 CRV owned by an offspring. The latest is inoperative electric door locks on the three non-driver doors. Found that the problem is broken wires in the flexible harness that connects the body to the drivers door (not the driver door harness itself)...
  6. Extra Wire Harness on 2000s CR-Vs

    Mobile Electronics
    Hello, I own a 2006 CR-V and am replacing the radio. I understand the utility of the main wire harness, and am comfortable (hopefully) working with that. But I remain a novice. I do not know what the small white connector on the image below is for. What does it control? What term should...
  7. Trailer Wiring Harness

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Saw I could buy kit online for 30$ and install myself but the wiring would have to sit under cargo mat by the spare tire. If I take it to the dealer will they mount the plug directly into my bumper so I don't have to worry about hiding the loose wiring or will they do the same and tuck it under...
  8. Re-installing the factory stereo- where can I get the wiring harness?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi, I'm trying to install a OEM CD/CASSETTE stereo from a older CRV (I bought the stereo used so I'm unaware of the year, between '01 ans '03 most likely) and I'm having trouble finding the wiring harness needed to install it. My current CRV (a 1999) had its wires snipped to install a...

    I have a 2018 EX-L FWD. Wanted to purchase a trailer wiring harness but was told only AWD came with the harness connector. Contacted e-trailer who contacted Honda. The connector is there on all models but it is hard to find and get at.

  12. harness wire

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all! I had some "rodent damage" in my car where they chewed through some wiring. At first I was told by the dealer that the whole thing had to be replaced 4k and that electrical tape would not be enough to save the frayed wires from further issues. I then found out my car insurance would...
  13. Wiring Harness Release

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    I'm trying to change the starter in our 2007 CRV. I cannot figure out how to get the wiring harness off that sits under the intake. I can find one tab that pulls up, but it seems opposite of what I would need to loosen it. Regardless, it doesn't have any give even when I pull the tab up. It...
  14. Drivers door harness

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. My dad has a 54 plate CRV which needs the drivers door harness replacing as there are problems with the electric windows working. I believe it was originally one of the faults that it was recalled for as all of the wires had obviously caught light at some point and are all melted. Think the...

  16. Wiring harness across all models

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Is the wiring harness the same across all models? I am looking to add fog lights and didn't know if the wiring was already run by default for the auto light sensor. Is the wiring there if I want to swap out the driver seat for a powered one? Will the powered seat fit in an SE? Tia, Andrew
  17. Battery Harness Restraint Bands

    Problems & Issues
    I recently replaced the battery in my 2013 CR-V LX, and broke a pair of harness restraint bands that sit atop the 2 posts of the battery hold-down plate. I can't find them in on-line parts diagrams; the dealership is lost based on my verbal description; and I even stumped Honda customer...
  18. 2009 CRV mouse chewed through transmission harness wire

    Problems & Issues
    I had the check engine light come on along with the flashing D on my 2009 CRV recently. I bought a ODB II code reader and it came up with code P0843. I bought the replacement transmission switch (28600-RCR-004) and when I went to replace it I found a mouse nest and the wire was completely...
  19. First Gen Door Wiring Harness Question - Black wire broke

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all - I've had a number of wires break off at the wiring harness at the drivers side door. Usually I remove the door panel, splice a new wire onto the one that broke off, find the same color wire inside the door panel, then cut and slice the other end of the new wire to it. This has...
  20. 97 Clock wiring harness

    1996-2001 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 1)
    Can anyone tell me for certain that Honda made provision for a clock wiring connection for 1997 even though the Clock was not production available until 1998 ? I'm wondering if the wire is there if I remove the cover ? Just thinking someone out there has tried this, hope so. David g.......:cool:
