My Canadian CR-V started to show a series of 13 alarms while we were in Florida in January. The alarms showed in sequence on the dashboard display and like other owners it covered all the driver support systems including adaptive cruise control, lane keep, Hill start electronic braking, awd, emissions control, etc..
I read on this site that disconnecting the battery might work. Did this and after a half mile drive the faults reset and disappeared, but a day later it was all back as it was.
Went to a local Honda dealer in Florida and got them to check the vehicle along with a technical service bulletin (17-064) update. They said they had never seen the problem before and suspected the battery being low. Battery checks determined the battery was ok. Faults all cleared up, but returned three days later.
On return to Canada I went to my local dealer Honda dealer in November Scotia. They quickly identified that this was a known issue, brought the vehicle in and did a full diagnostic check, and determined it was a bad injector on the engine fuel system. (Should note that all the while the system was showing the faults the engine seemed to be running a little rough on idle).
New injectors were ordered (believe these are a modified version of the originals) and pleased to report all systems are functioning properly. Great job by the local dealer.
Had tried to get help from Honda Canada but they were of very little help. Even though the vehicle is over the warranty mileage my local dealer made a superb gesture in paying for the parts and labour in support of a long term Honda customer; since 1998 I’m on my 4th Honda.

Thanks for posting. Interesting that it was an injector problem... I'll add that to my mental inventory.

I agree that injectors would not be the most obvious reason in my view. Which is why it really does take a trained and competent dealer service person to diagnose and repair many of the issues that can arise in modern vehicles.

That said... so much of the electronics is all interconnected in these modern vehicles... all manner of strangeness going on in the vehicle could cause multiple alert lights on the instrument display.

I had the exact problem with the same repair. 2017 CRV w/53k miles. Every error in the book, car ran, but the display was a hot mess of warnings. The dealer got it repaired under warranty, broke a spark plug while diagnosing it, and lost my key. Reprogrammed a new key fob, replaced the spark plug, and replaced the injectors. In some states, the injectors are covered under the power train warranty in other states it is not. In Ohio it was not covered but Honda USA did the right thing and picked it up. You have to ask your service department to make this call to get an exception to the warranty policy, they would have been happy to charge me 900 bucks for the repair. In the end I paid nothing and my car is back in business.

I have the same issue. My dashboard is lit up with error codes. I’m from NS too but I’m having a tough time with Colonial Honda in Halifax. They want $296 just to do the diagnostics. What dealership did the work on your CRV?

It is now reported often enough in this forum.. that we know some 2017s are going to have injector issues. Does not appear to be a large number, but it is being reported by some owners. It seems to be most common around 70K miles, and it is easily detected through OBDII error codes showing fuel mixture too rich.

Any way you slice it.. a new set of injectors seems to be right around $1600 US dollars to replace them. Some owners report Honda corporate covering the cost of the injectors, but labor is on the owner.

I experienced same thing 2 days ago, dashboard lit up with error codes. I have a 2018 honda touring crv. Took to a mechanic and he said may be related to a fuel injector problem. Should take to dealer as car has less than 46k on it. I believe fuel injectors are part of powertrain and hopefully will be covered under 50k mile warranty. Keeping fingers crossed. Love the car. The last car I had problems with this early in the ownership was a 1988 escort. Feel apart at 55k miles. Dumped at 88k miles. Bought another 2 Ford's which also had problems and never looked back. I am now the black sheep of a Ford family. Lol
