  1. Transmission Software Update - Can it be Reversed?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    My 2013 CRV was having a transmission issue. It makes this strange "crumbling" sound when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. Strangely, it only happens once after starting the vehicle, then it goes away. Doesn't matter if the engine is cold or hot. For example, if I go to get gas, when I restart the...

  6. Head unit software update details

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I had the head unit software update completed this morning. There's a ton of questions about it so I thought I would post some facts on how to get it and some of the changes to the system. Question 1: How do I know that I need it? You must have a specific repeatable problem, which is ONLY...
  7. 2017-2018 CRV Software update and A/C control unit replacement

  8. What effect did TSB 18-1X4 Oil Dilution Software Update actually have?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I’m going to give this Poll thing another shot in spite of having past polls being either shut down or not having any helpful results. Honda admitted to this problem more than two months ago and some people have been able to get the fix for almost as long. So I have a feeling that more than a...

  10. Did having TSB 18-1X4 Oil Dilution Software Update applied effect your Oil Dilution?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I live in an area with temperatures that seldom go below zero Fahrenheit but I do have the oil dilution problem year round. But since I live in Pennsylvania, I probably won’t be able to get either TSB-114 or TSB-124 installed until January at the earliest. I doubt that the A/C Control Unit...
  11. Effects of having TSB 18-1X4 Oil Dilution Software Update applied?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Lets change the meaning of the last the poll question On 11/14/18 I read the Genesis post stating that his FIX did not stop oil dilution. Since the Genesis vote in this poll was for No effect on gas mileage and no effect on performance Since I can't change the question on the poll. Lets...
  12. Software Update

    Dear Honda:
    I would love to learn of a software update that would allow me to close the windows and sunroof from outside the car by holding the lock ridges on the door handle, or the lock button on the "key." My '07 BMW has this very useful feature.
  13. Software Update or Torque Converter? (2013 CR V LX AT)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello fellow CR V owners! Just purchased a 2013 CR V LX AT, 112'000km's. Noticed that in shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear (40km-60km) that the transmission shudders. I can especially feel this on cold days. After contacting my dealer, apparently the software update and trani fluid flush had...
  14. Updating Software/ Firmware in '17 CR-V

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I own a 2017 CR-V Touring and have been reading that Honda has fixes for some problems by updating the firmware. I'm not experiencing any real problems however some fixes seem to speedup functions on the screen etc. Will the dealer do the upgrade even without any obvious problems to report?
  15. 2017 CRV Software Upgrade

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello. So I go into my dealer for my first free oil change. Being in IT and knowing the head unit on this car is running a VERY old version of Android I just asked if there was a software upgrade for the car. I love Android Auto but it is a little glitchy at times so I figured I would ask...
  16. 2016 CR-V EX US Model - Software in Europe

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi guys, Since a bit more than a week I have a great CR-V 2016 EX with infotainment system, coming from the States. Since using it in Europe and having an iPhone, most of the apps aimed for this vehicle ask for US-registered AppStore account, hence seem not to be available for installation with...
  17. Headunit software

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    The new Odyssey and upcoming Accord have a headunit with new software, and presumably hardware, that has a much quicker response. What is the consensus on when this will carry over to the CR-V? Not until the mid cycle refresh?

    Problems & Issues
    Bought my 2017 CRV Touring March 28. Since then I have had two computer crashes, four false warnings on the display screen to "BRAKE," two low tire pressure warnings, and eight instances of my car trying to slow down and stay behind a car in a parallel lane that is no threat to me. I took it to...
  20. Android Auto software not up to date?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    First time I've had android auto in the car. Loving it so far. However, when I was setting up options on the android auto app on my phone without it connected to the car, I noticed it was showing texts I had with Textra, I know textra has just recently updated the app to be compatible with...
