  1. 1999 Overdrive Switch

    Problems & Issues
    My O/D switch quit working. I tested the switch on the console for continuity, none! So apparently I need to replace it. Problem is..Honda discontinued it and the Park Pin Switch which should also be replaced at same time. Park Pin seems to be fine tho..So not worried about that. What I am...
  2. Overdrive disengaging.

    Problems & Issues
    I am having a issue with my 2003 CRV automatic transmission. While driving in the interstate at cruising speed and backing off the gas & coasting a little the transmission downshifts to 4th gear (way too soon for a downshift), Any Ideas???
  3. 01 Honda Cr-v OverDrive issue

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    I have a 2001 Honda Cr-V with an OverDrive issue. When I start accelerating the OverDrive light turns on. The button for the OverDrive does nothing to set it back to normal. As I accelerate more the RPM goes higher due to the OverDrive. As I'm driving the OverDrive turns on and off. Any...
  4. transmission issue (TC staying locked? or staying in overdrive maybe?)

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    test drove a 2000 crv and everything was fine. The drive home was also just fine until I was nearly home on a 45mph road. A light was red so I was slowing down but then it went green. I was down to maybe 25-30mph and as I pressed the gas pedal I was greeted by a shudder vibration feeling...

  6. Overdrive shifts in and out by it's self. The O/D button does not work.

    Problems & Issues
    Our 2007 CR-V will start out ok but suddenly will shift out of O/D then back again randomly. The button to control the O/D does nothing. Sometimes it will go out of O/D and stay like that until I turn off the motor and then turn on again. Latter it will start do shift in and out again. Today I...
  7. Shaky bumpy ride in overdrive at low RPMs

    Problems & Issues
    Hi guys, My 2001 has a quirk: sometimes it shakes to the point the dashboard starts rattling. The feel from the motor reminds me of when the AC compressor kicks on (slight resistance on the motor, slight rumble/growl sound), except more severe. The shaking only occurs under the following...
  8. Specific Towing How-To?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hi All, I'm moving across the country next week after I get married. I have a 2007 CRV 4WD. UHaul put on a hitch and I'm towing a small trailer full of stuff. I have already read all the posts about US vs. UK limits and should you go over the limits and yadda yadda yadda, so that has nothing to...
  9. RPM erratic while in overdrive

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I am new to this club as I have just recently acquired a 2002 Honda CR-V EX automatic all wheel drive vehicle and love it. Since I am new to the Honda world, and this particular vehicle, I wanted to ask about an RPM issue I have noticed while driving along in 'overdrive'. My...
  10. 2001 Engages Overdrive Gear Way Too Early - CR-V EX, AT, 68k miles

    Problems & Issues
    Good day, all. We recently bought a used 2001 CR-V with 68,000 miles about a week ago. Test drove fine. Drove home fine. All was well. The other day, I noticed that it shifted into overdrive gear way too soon. I did a drain and fill of the tranny fluid myself and what came out was pretty badly...

    Problems & Issues
    Our 1999 idles at about 3200 rpm at 65mph in fifth.Every other manual tranny car I have had idled around 2200 rpm.Is this common with the CRV or do we have a problem?
  12. 2010 CRV Overdrive and SHIFTING issues

    Problems & Issues
    I just bought a 2010 crv and it has 2000 miles on it. I have owned a 2003 and 2008 crv prior to this. I also own a 2008 accord v6. I am disappointed with this truck. When I roll around a corner at 5mph-10mph and push the accelerator, it doesn't want to down shift into second or first gear to...
  13. Overdrive? Not there on 2010? Dumb Question...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    So, here goes a stupid question that I thought I might ask here instead of trying to figure it out... my apologies in advance! If my poor memory serves correctly, my old '00 CR-V used to have an "overdrive" button that you could disengage when you were going up steep hills, etc. I don't see...
  14. Overdrive won't downshift

    Problems & Issues
    Good day, I have an 01 CRV. After the car has been running for a while (about 30 minutes, or less when it's warmer out), the overdrive won't downshift when I slow down. I have to either stop completely, or floor the pedal, or turn the o/d off to downshift. And I end up driving around with...
  15. 98 CR-V not shifting into Overdrive

    Problems & Issues
    I know there are a few discussions about this, but my 98 CR-V (Auto Tranny) won't shift into overdrive. It will sometimes after driving on the interstate for quite a while (20 miles or so) and it seems like the colder the outside temperature, the more likely it won't shift. I have changed the...
  16. New owner: Overdrive?

    Performance Modifications
    Just picked up my 04 today, and (having a senior moment), I cannot recall whether the salesman told me Overdrive is better on or off. I've driven stick-shift cars for the last 30 years, so I don't even know for sure what Overdrive does (and doesn't do). I do a combo of highway and non-highway...
  17. 1998 Overdrive Problem

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 1998 CRV 2-WD, automatic transmission with 77 K miles. A couple of months ago, the overdrive gear would not engage until the vehicle was running a while. I had the automatic transmission system flushed and fluid changed at a Honda dealership. The fluid change did not correct the...
