Normally, we don't have to go through tricks to get the idle stop to work...It seems that a few have discovered a scenario where it doesn't work, and a have helped the group by posting a way they figured out to get it working again.Okay, can anyone explain to me why an owner has to go through any type of tricks to get the idle start/stop feature to work? I know it is new feature, so are we writing this off as a system bug? Has anyone got a real answer from Honda?
If I understand it properly, if one's hood has been opened wile the engine is running, then the idle stop may be inactivated. If this is the case, then the "tricks" are a way to get idle stop to work again. Perhaps this is a bug is Honda's software, and "perhaps" Honda will address, it, but I doubt it.
The whole point of the "tricks" is to help those who want idle stop to function in their CR-Vs, and it is not. If yours is working then it doesn't apply to you.
