  1. removing the orange dipstick tip

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I would like to remove the orange plastic tip from the dipstick in order to make it easier to read. It is nearly impossible to see the level when the oil is fresh since it almost seems to "climb" up the tip even with the dipstick held down or horizontal. Of course the new oil is transparent...
  2. The Orange Tipped Monster

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    No, this has nothing to do with a politician. This is about the infamous dipstick used in the 1.5 liter turbo charged engine that exists in most of our CRVs. Over a year ago I began posting about what has become a “Sticky:” issue that shall never be mentioned anywhere else. I know that there...
  3. orange light around ignition stuck on

    Problems & Issues
    The orange light around my ignition is stuck on and it's wearing down my battery in cold weather. I've closed and locked the car and come back 30 minutes later to check and it's still on. Frankly, I don't care if I have to break it, break the light, or remove the fuse (if it's separate from...
  4. Orange

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I know this might seem dumb but after having an Orange Fit that I dearly love, I will never have another color car. It just makes me happy every time I look at it and I can easily find it in any size parking lot. SO...I'm seeking a Honda CR-V as I now need an AWD vehicle. Having trouble finding...

  9. Only One Orange Cluster Light Works

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 CRV EX purchased about 10 days ago. (105,000 miles) While driving at night I noticed only one of the orange lights on the instrument cluster comes on. It is at the top of the speedometer. The Visteon parts diagram shows these as a #7 which I think is a 3 watt bulb. After hours of...
  10. Orange Battery Light-03 CRV

    Maintenance and Service
    Just got a call from my daughter who is away at college that the orange battery light is staying on. It is not blinking. Does this indicate a bad battery or a problem with the charging system? I don't have a manual here at the house.:(

  14. Orange Peel Paint Job

    Dear Honda:
    Picked up a 2007 EX-L 4wd w/ NAV 2 weeks ago. I really enjoy the vehicle. While polishing it with Zaino (great polish), I noticed what a ****ty paint job it had and could see "orange peel" beneath the finish.
  15. Orange dash lights

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, I can only speak for myself. Had I of test drove the CR-v at night, I never would have bought it with the color of the dash lights! I have changed them to blue & thanks for making that much harder in the 06's vs the Gen 1's... anyway I know it's minor as the rest of the CR-V rocks!
