2016 CR-V Touring

I have been a Honda owner since 1974 and have nothing but praise for the make. I am somewhat puzzled over the issue my 2016 Touring is plaguing me with.

This problem can happen whether we been driving for hours or simply overnight, the vehicle won’t start and needs a jump. While we have a Halo pack which is a multi function unit which will jump the car it is driving us crazy.

The fob eats batteries as well and we had the car brought to Honda Service and the battery shows it’s fine and all we were told was we don’t drive it enough. I can’t accept this as an answer since checking out the problem shows it has been around since 2013 with the Accord when the keyless system was used.

Does anyone else have this issue and if so how was it resolved? Thank you very much in advance for any solution to this problem since I’m 100% disabled and my wife drives me to all my medical appointments and needs and she is afraid to drive the car without me there since she doesn’t really understand how to jump it if needed.

Thanks, yeah I know a battery could be reaching its EOL at 3 1/2 years but they did a stress test and said it was fine. My fobs battery was fine but my wife’s went through 3 batteries in 5 weeks, then I gave her mine and the battery in it dies in 3 weeks, that one I believe is the communication from the vehicle to the fob or vice versa.

I just can’t believe a keyless entry system should be this problematic in this day and age, regards.
Hey Bud, I hope you've resolved your issues.
What's your location?
I currently live in a southern state and I just found out that the heat kills batteries faster than the cold winters from NY.
I would just replace the battery.

Regarding the fobs, maybe the batch of batteries is old, I'm just saying.
I replaced the batteries on my TV remote control three times in one week, at the end it was an old batch of batteries. The batteries were new but about three years old.

Good luck with your issues and let us know and you solve them.

Also, if you have a credit card like Capitol One, it comes with a road side assistance included.
