  1. Doors not locking after hatch opened.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have noticed that my passenger side doors are not locked and it appears to happen after I have opened the hatch, closed it and walked away from the vehicle. When I return and not touch the front handles as they are set to auto open the front doors and I do have the key fob with me, the...
  2. Windows opened inadvertently by FOB

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I came back to my 2018 Honda CRV and found all the windows partially rolled down as well as the sunroof. Based on investigation, if the FOB unlock button is held down, the windows and sunroof open. This was a surprise to me as I did not expect this feature and it happened inadvertently...
  3. Alarm Sounds on 2008 when Driver Door Opened after Ignition Shutoff

    Problems & Issues
    I did a bit of searching before posting, so I *think* I might know what is up, but want to be sure - wife's car, and I am on the hook for fixing. I replaced batteries in both 2008 CRV key fobs. Switched to the backup fob because the graphics were still readable. Now when vehicle ignition is...
  4. Programming fob so that all doors open when drivers side is opened?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I have a 2016 Touring CRV and I was wondering if there is a way to program it so that when I open the driver's side door by grabbing the handle, that all doors will unlock. When I touch the passenger side door to unlock all doors unlock, but only the driver's side door opens when I touch that...
  5. 2005 – Ceiling light does not work when the doors are opened.

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    Just picked up a used 2005. The ceiling light / dome light does not come on when the doors are opened or when the doors are unlocked. It comes on when switched to ‘on’, but does not operated when in the center ‘door activated’ position. It does not come on when the tailgate is opened (but the...
  6. Dome light doesn't work when door is opened

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Is it a fuse that I have to check? We just picked up the car two weeks ago and haven't noticed until now. Dome light works when I switch it to on and will turn off when I put it to off. When you I put on (door model ON), light does not go on.
  7. Tailgate always detected as opened

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I'm having an issue right now with my 2010 CR-V EX and I'm looking for help/guidance. The problem is that the tailgate is always being seen/detected as opened in the instrument dashboard/cluster. The car icon in the middle is showing that the tailgate is open, but it's not. Since the...

    The following incident took place one night recently, as my wife was leaving work. The temperature was in the low teens or single digits.

  9. 2001 CR-V interior light does not come on when doors are opened

    Problems & Issues
    Does anyone know what causes the interior light in my 2001 CR-V to not come on when doors are open? It will work when it is in the on position. I even switched it with the cargo area light unit that was working fine when tailgate was open and that didn't work up front either. So it isn't the...
  10. 2001 crv: Horn blows when doors unlocked or opened

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I'm a new member and would like to thank you in advance for any assistance. I have a strange problem with my horn. When I use the remote or the key to unlock the doors, the horn will blow constantly. If I re-lock the doors or turn on the ignition, it stops. When the car is running...
  11. I miss having a rear window that opened independently of the gate itself

    Dear Honda:
    I miss having a rear window that opened independently of the gate itself, as it did on my old Gen I CR-V. It was so much easier to get gear out of the back without worrying about the dogs making sneak exit - or having the other stuff crammed in the back making an unplanned exit as well! (on...
  12. Water drips from Tailgate when opened - 2010 model

    Problems & Issues
    I've got a 2010 CRV with the same problem described in this thread. Whenever it rains, water from the tailgate when opened drips straight down the middle onto me when loading and unloading. Does this happen to anyone/everyone else? It looks like there is a TSB and repair kit for the 2007/8...
  13. Use of opened 2 yr old DPII fluid?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi guys, I have been learning a lot from you all and I want to say thanks. I have the majority of an opened quart of DPII fluid left over from my last 2x change of my 2006 CRV rear diff. I am wondering if that should be discarded or could be used during my next 2x change? It takes about 2 years...
