  4. 2008 CR-V EX-L Rear Camera Voltage

    Mobile Electronics
    Sorry, me again. After reviewing the shop manual, it appears from the connector K diagram that the rear camera uses 7 V supplied by the head unit. My aftermarket radio does not have a 7 V output so I guess I will use a zener diode or maybe an LM7xxx regulator to drop the 12 V battery voltage...
  5. Honda CRV low alternator voltage (12.35V) at idle

    Problems & Issues
    Hi All, My Honda CRV 2014 battery has just died last week. When looking for how to replace a battery, I learn a few more things about alternator and battery voltage. I replaced my stock battery with Costco Kirkland Group 35 and i could start the engine fine. However, when I test the voltage...

  7. Charging Voltage too low - 2012 CRV-EXL

    Maintenance and Service
    My 2012 CRV-EXL has an alternator/diode issue (I think). If I let the car sit for a few hours, the resting battery voltage is 11.6-11.8 volts. Starting the car in the morning the voltage quickly goes to 14.0 - 14.3 volts. All good at this point, however. After driving for awhile and especially...

  13. Low voltage during driving

    Maintenance and Service
    I am using a voltmeter (combined with interior thermometer) device inserted into lighter outlet of my 2015 CRV Touring. I noticed that sometimes the electric system voltage is measured as 12.3V even when engine starts and some time after. Then it jumps to 14.3V. I thought that if alternator and...
  14. CRV Engine Block Heater works on 240 volts in Europe?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Hi All, I'm stumped. The Canadian bought 2010 CR-V EX 4WD is in Europe with Mom and she would like to know if the factory installed engine block heater will work with 240 volts? Can she plug it in with a Euro plug without having to convert voltage? I cannot find voltage specs in the 500+ page...

    I have one of those voltage monitors plugged into the adaptor on my 2008 Honda CR-V so I can monitor the strength and life of the battery. The battery is new but I noticed that although the car starts and performs strongly, every now and again the voltage drops suddenly from about 14.2 to about...
  17. Altenator voltage regulator

    Problems & Issues
    My wife's 2012 just had the voltage regulator go out at 43k miles. It is odd but i know these things happen. Does anyone know of an alternative to buying the overly priced factory model? A good altenator should run around 100 this one is over 400. i'm at a loss and my wife loves this car.
  18. MAP sensor output voltage

    Maintenance and Service
    I have 2000 CR-V EX. I need to know the MAP voltage output with engine off, key on. Mine is 3.0v, should it be 5v? I'm having a stall problem while the engine transitions from cold to warm.
  19. No Voltage to Stereo

    Mobile Electronics
    Hey, my girlfriend's stereo stopped working before I met her. It didn't do anything except click. So the fuse was pulled, and as long as I knew the car, it had no stereo. Yesterday I installed a new stereo, and put in a fuse, and nothing. No power. I checked the backup fuse under the hood...
