  1. Battery Woes

    Dear Honda:
    Dear Honda, I am a 68 yr old retired Grandma who lives alone and frequently babysits for my Grandchildren which includes picking them up and taking them to school etc. This means I need a reliable vehicle. When I purchased my 2016 CRV Touring model, I wanted reliability, safety, and comfort...
  2. 2016 CRV flat Battery Woes.

    Problems & Issues
    I had a wheel alignment & balance done our CRV yesterday, tire salesman said we are checking the charge in the batteries of the vehicles we are working on too, and yours is low. How old is the car, I said not even 2 yrs old yet and 55,2?? kms, I thought he was up selling. He said well keep a...
  3. 2012 CRV battery woes

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I have found the lack of battery life on the 2012 to be quite on issue online, and if this has been covered before then I apologize for the redundancy. I have gone through 2 batteries in the last 3 years and just had to put in another battery today. After some digging here is what I have...
  4. 2016 Touring Navigation System, Woes!!

    Problems & Issues
    I would like to know if there is a software update or barring that an aftermarket replacement for the Honda OEM in dash Navigation system. The extra cost for this system was, in my opinion, wasted. This GPS system is pitiful. Tried to get me to turn into a river one time, a field another...
  5. Towbar installation woes

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Brains trust, having problems with installing a towbar. Bought one second hand, has a plate which says it's for a Crv, 97 onwards. It's a Reece. Mines a 2000. Came with some boots, but it isn't clear how to install. Reece were no help, as they said it is installed by Honda, not them, so cannot...
  6. 6 Disc Changer woes

    Mobile Electronics
    We have an 03 or 04 CRV with an AM/FM/CD/Cassette 6 disc changer. All the CD's load down into the dash unit. Now I show indication that there are two discs loaded. Now every time we get in and turn the key on the player clicks and makes a rhythmic sound for about 8-10 seconds then it gives me...
  7. A/C Woes

    Performance Modifications
    I've always said that my Hondas (2002 and 2004 CR-Vs) were as reliable as refrigerators - well, the refrigerator quit today. Literally - the A/C in the 2002 quit cooling - suddenly, with no drama and while underway- today. No noises, belt is still turning. I know this is impossible to diagnose...
  8. Air conditioner compressor woes

    Problems & Issues
    Help! I really love this car so when the air conditioner compressor went out on my 2004 CR-V I initially looked for another car. Not finding anything at all that I liked, I spent 4k at Honda to have it reparied in 2012. I had 98k on the car at the time so I did not qualify for even a partial...
  9. 2009 thermostat replacement woes. To seal or not to seal?

    Maintenance and Service
    I'm almost at 90k and am going to replace the coolant and thermostat in my 2009 CRV, after ordering it I was surprised to find that it comes with the housing(Honda part number 19301-RAF-004) when I received it. I see that it does come with a rubber seal, but does it require any other sealant to...
  10. 98 Automatic Transmission Woes

    Problems & Issues
    I bought this car about a year ago, used, with about 160k on it and the guy who sold it said that the transmission was recently replaced due to someone putting the wrong fluids in the wrong spots (which, where I don't remember exactly, upshot was the transmission had just been replaced). The car...
  11. ABS woes

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I have an ABS issue. I will be so grateful if somebody could shed some new light on this. Let me explain. 2 weeks ago I replaced the passenger rear wheel bearing because I thought it was the culprit of a howl. I had an automotive machine shop press in the bearing. The ABS light came on...
