  2. smart key does not always work to unlock driver's door

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have a 2019 Honda CRV EX-L, and the car so far is great. What I have noticed is that the driver's door will not always open when I touch the raised markings on the door handle while I have the smart key in my pocket. Most of the time it works but occasionally the door handle and unlocking...
  3. I love our CRV but can't drive it two and one half miles to work without oil dilution

    Problems & Issues
    Thankfully my Wife works far enough away to vacate the dilution. We just bought our '18 in mid November. I drove it to work for five days in a row. I checked and the oil level rose about 1/8". I made an appointment about it but my wife drove the car to work one day before. The level had...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I have a 2003 CRV EX. I replaced the brake switch and the fuse for the brake lights. Nothing has worked. Can anyone tell me what I am missing?

  7. Automatic Door Locks Do Not Work

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, Recently purchased a used 2001 CR-V for a reasonable price, with one of the caveats being that the automatic door locks do not unlock ANY of the doors.

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have a 2015 CRV LX. If I want to use navigation from my iphone I can't listen to the radio. I have to use bluetooth setting which forces me to listen to my downloaded music which becomes boring on a long trip. Is there anyway to listen to the radio while using my navigation?

  12. Courtesy lights don't work but the map lights do?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    I have a 2004 Honda CRV and the courtesy lights don't work but the map lights do. I could only find one fuse for this and it was ok so is there a relay somewhere? The owners manual is useless and shows a switch for the map/courtesy light which doesn't exist. I have checked all the under bonnet...

    The display unit (HU) in my May 2018 CR-V EXL was flashing, beeping (as others have reported), and the Apple Play stopped working so I took it to the dealer for repair. They said that they put in a new part and it was working fine. A few days later, the display unit went completely black and...
  15. Does CMBS (automatic braking) work at low speeds?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I was inching my CRV toward my wife's Prius, in our tandem driveway.

In her Prius (2017), it will beep and stop the...

  17. The "FIX" Worked.....Or Did not work

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Thought it might be a good idea to start a thread whether or not the "Fix" for the oil dilution / heat issue has worked for you or not. Please try and be sure to have your location / dealer listed

    I have discovered a very strange USB cable situation in my 2018 Honda CRV-EX. Bought the car in Sept but had to wait for the color I wanted to come in. So the dealer loaned me a brand new 2018 Honda Accord Sport for a few weeks. Was using my Samsung S4 Droid in it successfully and it allowed me...
  19. Engine cooling fans don’t work

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2007 CRV that overheats a bit when I get stuck in traffic. I’ve flushed the coolant, swapped out both coolant temp sensors, tested the thermostat. The problem (I think) is that the fans won’t kick in until engine temp is around 212/215 (from OBD reader) and they won’t stay on longer...
  20. AC Blowers Work Intermittently

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey guys. My issue started a month or 2 ago. On extremely hot days 90-100+ my AC blower would die down briefly then kick back up eventually. It cooled down outside and I hadn’t really had the issue since. Now it’s doing it almost every time during the day (80+ degrees now). The morning it works...
