  1. 04 CRV - Installed New Radio , Now car overheats due to fan not working !!!

    Problems & Issues
    I installed an aftermarket Radio/DVD player in my 2004 Honda CRV. For the installation I used an aftermarket wiring harness/plug so I didn't have to cut any wires. The problems I am experiencing since the installation are: - Car overheats because fan not kicking on. - Power door locks not...
  2. Remote Starter Incorrectly Installed

    Problems & Issues
    Hi Everyone, Last weekend I was driving my 2013 CRV toward the highway and noticed traffic up ahead. I proceeded to step on the brake to slow the car and my CRV immediately shut down. It was practically impossible to control anything. I glided over toward the side of the road because...
  3. Red Tango's Ebay Roof Rack Installed

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I just finished installing roof rack (ebay around ~$50). a word of caution for future installer. Front one is "longer" than rear one. (I installed the rear one in front and when I tried install front one in rear, it was too "long") Measure them, front one is bit longer.

  5. Tow hitch -- where to get it installed?

    I am looking to add a bike rack and thus need a hitch receiver. I have gone through some old posts and they seem to indicate u-haul as a good place to buy and install hitch. 1. Is that still a good place to get hitch? 2. Are there any that would be more hidden than the other? I kinda have...

  7. Installed gentex compass/temp mirror! what wire to tap off for 12v power?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I just installed this mirror and I am assuming that I tap off a 12v supply line like the rear view wiper. I do not have a test light and was wondering if someone knew what wire I would tap off near the fuse box to get power. This is for a 2011 CRV. There are 2 harnesses located near the fuse...
  8. Installed compass/temp mirror, where to tap off fuse?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I installed a compass/temp mirror in my 2011 CRV. Which fuse box should I tap off? The one under the dash or in the engine bay? I need to tap off a line that has power only during ignition and it seems like an accessory or rear wiper might do. Thanks
  9. OEM CR-V Parking Sensor installed not compatible with my vehicle

    Problems & Issues
    I recently bought a 2013 Honda Crv 2.0L 5WD Auto, originating from Thailand. My Honda agent ordered and installed for me the CRV parking sensors. They did an excellent job with the install but the sensors do not work. Honda claims that the sensors fitted are not compatible with my model of...

  11. 2014 CR-V Gentex 50-GENK40A Auto Dimming mirror with Homelink installed

    I studied the previous posts, especially the 2012 install by carfanatic. It really inspired me to try this myself in my 2014 EX AWD CR-V. I ordered the parts 3 days ago (got...
  12. Kenwood ksc-sw11 subwoofer installed

    Mobile Electronics
    I just installed a kenwood ksc sw11 all in one amp/subwoofer in my 06 crv, I always say im gonna take pictures along the way but never think about it while I'm installing. It was a fairly easy install, I ran the wires under the passenger side carpet and the subwoofer is under the passenger...
  13. Anyone installed a Thule Hullavator on their factory CRV racks?

    Biking, Camping, Hiking, & Kayaking
    Has anyone investigated these? My guess is that it would not work because it would put too much torque/sideload on the crossbars? My factory bars are only rated at 75 lbs. I get the impression that the 75 lbs rating is the total for both bars, not 75 lbs each. I can't find any specifications...
  14. Curt Class 3 trailer hitch installed on a 2013 CRV EX-L

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I decided to go overkill on the hitch since price difference was minimal. What I will say is, it is not that easy to install overall. The bottom plastic cover was removed and a rectangle cut out (there are measurements given as to where to cut). The hitch was the easier part. The wiring was...
  15. Honda Factory Installed Security System

    Mobile Electronics
    Guys, I am trying to figure out if my 2013 EX-L AWD CRV has a shock sensor built it? Last week My system went off and nothing was open/opened up. The manual does not cover that detail? :confused:

    Wahoo!! i finally got my sharkfin antenna installed. the local dealer charged me 1 hour, $82.00. there seemed to be a lot involved, i would not recomend this for the average diy'er. i used an acura rdx antenna, tech said wiring harness was a lil shorter than original but usable. sharkfin...
  17. Wow! Cost of dealer installed trailer hitch.

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I want to carry four bikes so a roof mounted rack is not an option. My local dealer wants $393 (USD) for the trailer hitch and almost $600 for installation. :eek: Time to look for a third party hitch/installation and any recommendations are appreciated. I'm venting first and will now search this...

    Hey crv owners, I used to be on here a lot a long time ago, haven't been on here for a while but still taking good care of my 06 SE. Finally decided to upgrade my radio yesterday.

    Hi, Now that the weather is warmer I put side moldings on my new CR-V (EX - red pearl, AWD) The job went well with the biggest problem being removing the protective films on the adhesive strips. I like the looks and now I wont have to worry so much when parking the vehicle. I did notice that...
