    How many clicks does it take you to fully engage the parking brake so that if you were to park on a fairly steep incline the car wont roll back if you shift to neutral?

    Does regular/normal use of the parking brake have any effect on the rear brakes (adjust them)? In other words, if someone seldom or never used the parking brake could the rear brakes become less effective and cause higher than normal front pad wear?

    Hi there guys! I just got a 2016 Honda CRV LX, and next to the parking sensor button there’s this button that I still can’t figure out what’s for. I did my best researching Google but no luck. See picture below. Can you guys please help me?

    Hello all, CRV 2018 EX. Is there an actual "Emergency Brake". I'm aware of the parking brake as well as the brake hold. Fortunately in my experience I've never had to use the emergency brake in the past, but going way back, this was actually taught in driving school. Has this gone away? If...

    I have my 07 CRV 5 months and cannot get the parking sensors to work. My CRV is a Sport model and has a number of sensors in the rear bumper but I cannot get them to work. the manual is silent on where the fuse is as that may be the problem. Anyone out there had this problem. Any...

    I was just able to purchase a JDM Rear Parking Mirror on eBay from a seller in Malaysia for $100 shipped. For the last four years, I’ve sourced out some rare (or becoming rare) for my 2001 CRV EX. From Clear Euro Markers, Red Hazard Button, Rear Spoiler, Tail Light Guards, Passenger Armrest, and...

    New to the forum, so hello to all first of all. I purchased a new CRV just a few weeks back, have just clocked up 2000 KM and have started to notice a problem with what I think is the rear left side parking brake - but its a bit of a strange problem. First of all, the problem only really...

    I want to install a Garmin dash cam 55 and I want to use the hardwire kit. Has anyone done it? I'm looking for the best fuse to plug into. Thanks

    Hi, I recently installed a Pioneer navigation system in my 2009 CR-V. Everything is OK except for some features that are disabled (Bluetooth connection, firmware update, etc). According to the Pioneer support department, the reason for having these features disabled is not having one of the...
  11. Dear Honda:
    My parking release gearshift button broke off--just fell into the tray & the spring fell out after I had shifted to park. Still under warranty--that part should have lasted the life of the car. Some internet notes say that when they took the vehicle for repair they were told the dealer shop...

    I have to parking my vehicle on fairly steep slope so I was wondering how to properly engage the parking brake. Do I press the parking brake firmly all the way till it stops or do I stop after hearing few clicks (after how many clicks should I stop)? I notice that it is sometimes difficult to...

    Sometime when I park my 2017 CRV - EX the parking brake gets set and sometimes it doesn’t. I can’t figure out what the difference is. Can anyone provide an explanation?

    I owned a 2017 EX AWD. I just noticed this sound today after parking I stayed in the car for a while and noticed it coming from under the dashboard. After I turned off the engine for a few seconds, this tiny clicking sound comes out. It's not loud, not fast; just a regular and slow clickings...

    I reversed into a signpost pole. By sheer bad luck, of all the places on the bumper, the post hit the very spot where the parking sensor is. Ironically, the parking sensor didn't spot it, and more importantly, neither did I with either door mirror, the rear view mirror or the reversing camera...

    Hi all, my dad has just bought a 2003 CR-V and has asked me to fit rear parking sensors to it. Because it has the offset number plate and exterior spare tyre, I am struggling to find a good place to mount the sensors, so I wanted to ask if anyone who has fitted sensors could show me where they...

    Q; If the Cr V was rear-ended with the brake hold activated would it hold? Or would it apply the parking brake like it does when you unhook the seatbelt with the Brake hold applied. Just wondering, I was thinking about it at a light tonight with a car coming a bit fast up to the rear.
