  1. Parasitic Draw for Dummies/2012 CR-V

    Problems & Issues
    Can someone direct me to a resource that explains how to locate and repair a parasitic draw on a Honda? My battery will lose its charge If I do not drive it every day. I took it to two mechanics and they ran the tests and replaced the battery and some some relays and the problem persists. I have...
  2. 2017 CRV parasitic battery drawn

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    My 2017 CRV Touring couldn't get start after sitting in the garage for about 1 week; the battery is dead. I couldn't even open the door with the remote key. There are quite a number of USA owners encountered this problem and got it fixed; it is a software update. The reason is the VSA...
  3. Parasitic Battery Draw (Dead Battery)

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    To all fellow CRV owners, please take note of this as more than likely you'll be hit by this. My 2017 had 1800 miles on it. Ready to leave on a trip. Was not happy at 4pm. This SB was issued on June 14, 2017. Think Honda would contact us? Check your VIN if you're in the range they perform a...
  4. Parasitic drain on 2004 CR-V. Does this generation have problems with the AC relay?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I'm starting to see signs of my second new battery biting the dust in the past six months. In threads about the newer model CRV's, an AC clutch relay is culprit, and replacing the OEM part with an alternate seems to fix the problem for good. Do the second gen CRV's have the same AC...

    I've been having an ongoing problem all year with a slow, hesitant to start battery. I did replace the battery, also a brand new starter. I was still having the issue. Had various places look at it - battery perfect, alternator perfect, starter perfect. I was having the issue that a lot of...

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    Hello all, sorry that my first post is a cry for help :) I am trying to solve a frustrating issue with my wife's Gen 1 1996 CRV. There appears to be a parasitic drain on the battery. It takes a few tries to start - doesn't make the clicking sound but just struggles and then on the third or...

    Having a real pain with my 2007 CR-V EX. Over the last 6 months it will randomly fail to start as the battery has gone flat, I have replaced the battery thinking it was just the age of it, however since then I have still had several flat batteries after the vehicle been stood for a few days.

  8. Parasitic draw - 2010 CRV

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I have this 2010 CRV EX with a parasitic draw. The battery will be dead in 2 days if the vehicle is not used. Battery is not the issue! I tracked the parasitic draw to the "back up" fuse. When I remove this fuse, the draw disappears. If I remove the fuse I lose remote door locks, radio...
