  1. CRV 2017 fob remote start fails by next day. Have to manually start car and then it works again.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    This is weird. This just started a week ago. Ive had the car for 2 years almost and remote start worked fine. Always parking in my driveway. The fob remote start will not start the car by next day (or if car sits for few hours, not sure). But if I get in the car press the keyless START button...
  2. Keyless Entry Stops Working

    Problems & Issues
    I just purchased a 2007 Honda CR-V EX-L and have encountered a problem with the keyless entry remote. I replaced the battery and when I first get out of the car the lock/unlock functions perfectly. However, if I wait 5 minutes or longer then when I go to open the door nothing does...
  3. Gen 2 02-06 rd7 rd5 CRV remote start options

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I'm looking at installing a command start in my 04 CRV rd7. Does anybody know of any plug and play kits on the market? Or maybe there is a t-harness I can buy somewhere for this gen CRV, that way I won't have to cut into the factory wiring (would like to avoid that if I can). Thanks in advance.
  4. Remote door lock mystery

    Problems & Issues
    My 2013 EX's power locks work fine from the driver's armrest button, and will UNlock with the remote--but NOT lock with the remote. I put a new battery in the remote and the red LED is now brighter than it was, but the car will not lock remotely. (They were working fine a week ago, and I put...

    Problems & Issues
    Good morning. New to the forum and I've searched for over an hour and can't find any threads that match the issue I'm having. Hope someone has experienced the same issue I'm dealing with now. My daughter has a 2012 Honda CRV EX with a dead battery. Replaced the battery last night and now the...
  7. Keyless remote programming -- only one of them works!

    Problems & Issues
    My kiddo had her lanyard taken down at the college, and we've had to have a new key made. I've ordered two new keyless entry remotes. Note that this is for a 2002 Accord, but the instructions are exactly the same as any of the CR-Vs, the Civic and the Acura TL we owned. Essentially it's the...
  8. 2018 SRV EX-L Remote starting via FOB

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    HI all My first post so here it goes: I love my 2018 CRV Ex-L but was wondering on the remote start. I have to be within 100' of it to start it remotely. Has anyone done anything to increase the Honda Standard FOB, or if you added something to do it? I see there are a few options I see from a...
  9. 2016 EXL Remote Starter?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I thought somewhere I read that the EXL is already wired for remote starter they just didn't include the transmitter. Is this correct? I see you can buy transmitter online $300. so if I buy transmitter then it will work? or do I still have to take to dealer for setup?
  10. iPhone Remote start options?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I have a 2018 CR-V EX AWD. I have the key fob remote start but am wondering if anyone has added on an aftermarket option for remote start capability through the iPhone? I’ve looked for this on the HondaLink app but it appears it doesn’t come with the EX and only with Touring and higher models...
  11. Remote opener programming

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I bought the new (to me) 2001 CR-V in Sept, the key fob that came with it had a remote opener fob. It did not work so I changed batteries with hopes that was all. It still did not work so I got a new fob which needed programming. I have not been able to get that programmed. I do what several...

    Ok, I have owned the car for less than a week, its already had a radar replaced in the front that was disabling the honda sense features. The remote start while standing in the doorway of my garage (less than 10 feet from the vehicle) does not work. Yep its turned on in setting on the head...
  13. 2001 CRV Dashboard lights and remote for locks not working

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Not sure if these two things are even connected/related--the remote for the lock/unlock doors, all of them, no longer works after I got the car detailed. Thought could have gotten something wet inside the door panel, but I live in AZ with 0% humidity and it has been weeks, everything has dried...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi guys. I've just installed a xtrons aftermarket double din head unit. The issues I had were that I couldn't find any information on the original wiring for the steering wheel remotes. I got them working by process of elimination. I had a sat nav unit on it as standard. Heres a link to the...

  16. 2014 CR-V EX Remote Start Research

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi there, I have been doing some research on this. My CR-V EX AWD key fob does not have any fancy horns and whistles. The remote has an alarm and lock/unlock doors funcionality. Ideally, I would like to use the standard key even it's short distance. I could attempt the installation myself -...
  17. New Member 2015 Remote Start

    Greetings & Introductions
    Ever since our CRV battery went dead and we replaced it, the remote start built into the key, won’t work. The key was programmed at the Honda dealer and worked fine to remote start until the car battery was replaced. Please help.
