  2. CRV 2011 Mysterious interior water Leak

    Problems & Issues

  5. Mysterious Dome Light Behavior

    Problems & Issues
    My recently-obtained '01 CR-V LX has an unusual problem with the dome light. The light does not come on when any of the doors are opened with the switch in the middle (DOOR) position.
