  2. 2009 CRV Weird Starting but then No Power Issue

    Problems & Issues
    Thought I would post and see if anyone else has seen this/has any idea what problem is. I went to start CRV, it started to crank and then instead of turning on, all lights on dash everywhere went out and cranking stopped. Sudden and almost like battery was dead--but it's only 2 months old. I...

  4. 2017, weird noise from inside dash

    Problems & Issues
    So there is a very odd sound coming from my dash. It only starts at 40mph- and gets a little louder the faster I go. Turning/hitting bumps does not affect the sound. It makes the sound with the a/c turned on or off. It almost sounds like the sound a VCR would make...people riding have said...

My car was parked outside in the Chicago winter for over three weeks. Since my return, I noticed that when I am braking especially at high speeds, there is a...
  6. 06 CRV Ex AWD, brake sounds weird if the car slips on snow?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    It's been snowy recently and sometimes when I press the brakes and if it's slippery, the car will not stop. But what's concerning is the weird noise the brake makes, it's hard to describe but it sounds like something is rubbing about something. I don't hear anything in normal dry weather when...

    Have any of you noticed a weird noise with HVAC system in 17/18 CR-V’s? I’ve noticed a metallic sound that kind of reminds me of a fan blade hitting the cage as it rotates.

  14. Weird map light issue in 2007. Solutions?

    My passenger map light does not turn on when any of the vehicle doors open, but will turn on if I press the map light itself. The driver side map light and dome light turn on when any of the vehicle doors are open. Can't be a door jamb switch. The bulb and fuse are obviously fine since it...
  15. 2000 CRV weird issue

    Problems & Issues
    2000 crv ,290,000 miles . When I take off from a stop the car shakes/vibrates pretty bad until you get to about 25 or 30 mph. I notice it way more when I am taking of and turning left as opposed to taking off going straight. Memory doesnt recall if it does it turning right or not.

However, It does NOT happen once the car has...
  18. Weird squealing sound when in reverse

    Problems & Issues
    I know that it’s very common for Honda’s to “whine” I’m reverse however this isn’t that. This started yesterday and it happens when I go in reverse and I’m not touching the gas or break. So say I’m on a hill the sound will be louder. Then it will stop as soon as I step on the break. It’s pretty...
