  2. Carplay no longer works

    Mobile Electronics
    I've used Carplay since I bought a 2018 ExL and it has worked perfectly. This week it simply stopped working. When I plug the Iphone into the correct usb port, the phone indicates it is charging but Carplay does not come up on the CRV screen. I have tried several different USB cable including...
  3. Keyless remote programming -- only one of them works!

    Problems & Issues
    My kiddo had her lanyard taken down at the college, and we've had to have a new key made. I've ordered two new keyless entry remotes. Note that this is for a 2002 Accord, but the instructions are exactly the same as any of the CR-Vs, the Civic and the Acura TL we owned. Essentially it's the...
  4. Wireless Android Auto on 5th Gen CRV - it works (kindof)

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hi all, I've been doing a bit of research and have extensively tried out two different approaches. My favorite is Approach 2 below, using AAGateway. It is stable enough to use on my daily commute, though it isn't "get in your car and leave phone in your pocket" stable yet. This guide will...
  5. AC works but Buttons not switching option choices

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    CRV 2010- original owner Good day-did a search and did not find this. AC is working fine but seems to be stuck on the front feet or combo with feet, nor MAX condition. I don't think duct tape, WD40 or blow torch are the answers. Yes I do have thief insurance but, not that...

    Hi there. New to CRVs. Ive had my 2008 EX for a couple of months now and suddenly the roof shade thing (moonroof?) Has stopped. Only the rear half will retract and the fron half has gone saggy.

  7. Only Driver Door Power Lock Works

    Problems & Issues
    So I've been dealing with this issue on my 2000 for about two-three weeks now. The remote and button in the door will only lock/unlock the driver door. The boot cover seems to be fine, don't think it got pinched or anything. Could this be caused by a fuse or relay? I haven't had a chance to look...
  8. Android Auto works really well with Android 8.0 (Oreo)

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I had a lot of problems using Android Auto on my 2017 CR-V Touring. The head-unit was usually very stable until I plugged in my Samsung S8 running Nougat (7.0) with Android Auto. Then, it would refuse to answer incoming calls, get stuck and need a reboot. Researching the issue, I read that...

  10. 2011 rear washer sprayer works but not the front.

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi All, On my 2011 CR-V, only the rear spray washer works. Not the front. Front and rear wiper works. As far as I know, there is only one washer pump motor, it sprays for the front and back. Voltage in one direction and it sprays the front sprayer. Reverse the voltage polarity and it sprays...
  11. OK Google Detection Only Works Once

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Car is a 2017 CR-V AWD Touring. Phone is a Samsung S8. I've had the car for about three weeks and it has roughly 600 miles on it. Up until a few days ago, I was able to say, "OK Google" and interact with Google via Android Auto in all the ways you would expect. For example, finding a location...
  12. Collision mitigation works – I avoided head on car

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I was driving in South Texas and when a car traveling towards me entered my lane. Alarms started popping up before I knew what was going on and CRV started to slowed down quickly. I will try to post video (two front and back videos) of it here and include a photo, too.
  13. BlueTooth Works Fine but, No Siri?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hey, all. I have a 2016 CRV LX and, like the title says, my BT works great with one exception. Nothing happens when I hold down the button that's supposed to summon Siri. So, I can't easily change playlists, respond to texts, pull up maps, or do any of a number of other useful things while I'm...
  14. A/C only works in cool ambient temperature

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi folks, My air conditioner only works when the ambient temperature is below 75 degress (estimate). I've checked the coolant reservoir and the coolant level is between the max and low lines. I checked the two relays under the hood in the fuse box that control the fan and compressor and both...

    Hi! So my passenger side rear brake light does not work when I brake, however, it does light when i lock the car (when the lights flash). Obviously the bulb is fine and from a visual inspection, the back of the bulb looks okay too. anyone know what's going on? I'm guessing a wiring issue but...
  16. 2011 CR-V bottom brake lights not working - center works fine

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I just failed inspection today. My center brake light works, the others don't. I checked the bulbs, they are good. The horn/brake light fuse is good. I found a post in Honda Pilot forum where there is a little black box near the spare tire, and there's a connector going to it. If that...
  17. CRV Engine Block Heater works on 240 volts in Europe?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) 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...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I uploaded a short video today demonstrating the 2015 CRV Touring's Collision Mitigation Braking System myself and trying different techniques. I hope it'll give people a good idea of how the system reacts in real life.
  19. Despite critics, Honda's OEM remote start works great for me

    Dear Honda:
    I was in Woodridge, VA this past weekend and I had to get into an icy cold car in a hurry. Man oh man. So I called Hendrick Honda and was ecstatic to hear they had the parts and had an opening. They installed it, gave me a quick hands on tutorial (3 min) and off I went. Works from the 2nd...
  20. 02' CR-V - Left Hazard/Turn Signal works but not running lights?!?!?!

    Problems & Issues
    So several months ago my front driver's side upper turn signal/running light went out. I replaced the bulb but noticed that although the running light function still failed to work, the light would still illuminate for the turn signal/hazard function on that side. After doing a little...
