  1. Transmission Software Update - Can it be Reversed?

    Maintenance and Service
    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...

  9. Head unit software update details

    Gen 5: 2017-Present 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...
  10. Having update done in MO

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    After a cold spell here and lots of short trips, I checked the dipstick and it was above the orange. Called the south KC Honda dealer and they told me to bring it in for the fix. Half the employees here aren’t aware of the problem or even the arrangements made for me. Very cloak and dagger. If I...
  11. Am confused - I received update letter, but dealer said No

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hello - I have a simple question. I received the letter from Honda for Product Update 18-114 (SW Update + A/C Control Unit) The letter says failure to get the update could be considered lack of proper maintenance. ***I called my dealer to schedule the update and he said I only need the update...

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

    Gen 5: 2017-Present 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...
  14. Quick update on oil delusion

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi guys, 2017 exl with 25k. I had the oil changed 1500 miles ago and oil level has risen and the oil smells like fuel so I’m bring it back for another oil change. I did get a case # from Honda after I stressed my concern regarding fuel mixing with oil and the possibility of the engine vapor...
  15. Successful Navi Update

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I just successfully updated my 2018 Navi system with 2019 maps. I've been a long-time Garmin user so the process was familiar and I'd already downloaded Garmin Express on my laptop. The process was easy, quick, and painless. It took 43 minutes to download the maps via laptop (WiFi) to the...

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

    Gen 5: 2017-Present 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...

  19. Effects of having TSB 18-1X4 Oil Dilution Software Update applied?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present 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...
