    I bought a set of eBay foglights. I was able to wire them pretty quickly. But I don't like the switch it came with.

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    Hi Last week we took our 2005 CDTI Executive in for the recall on the master window switch.

We had not been aware of this issue previously...

  10. Torque converter by-pass switch

    Problems & Issues
    My little '99 CRV could use a few more horses pulling some of our Callifornia hills. While driving the freeway, in order to hold speed while climbing a grade, the car will of course downshift to 3rd gear. Needless to say, listening to the little 4-banger screaming at the top of its lungs is not...

    Problems & Issues
    I had posted in Dec about my wife telling me that her 2010 CRV would sometimes not start on the first try. I had never seen it happen since I drive the CRV infreqently, so have been guessing from her description of the sound if it was the starter or maybe the battery. Well.....we just returned...
