Check the compressor relay fuse. Not sure what you mean by HAC.Which fuses can prevent A/C operation? The blower fan works.
Also, what does the HAC fuse protect?
I would bet you 10 bucks it's the compressor clutch. I would have that checked. This was a big problem for 07-09 and looks like it might be for the 10's as well.Thanks for your response wlong!
Sometimes it blows warm air, sometimes cool, and sometimes cold. I'm suspecting that since the problem is variable that it's a sticking relay. Probably the compressor relay? Not sure how to check that other than to tap on it and see if I can hear the compressor kicking in and out. I'm wondering if there are other relays that could be the problem. ?
So the fuse, labeled in the manual as HAC is the fuse for the main blower for Heat and A/C. Hence HAC. Should have figured that one out I suppose.
Ha! Just what I suspected! Thank you very much! It's working fine right now. When it goes out again I'll get a new relay from VIP for 6$. Or I'll pick one up next time I go by there.I would bet you 10 bucks it's the compressor clutch. I would have that checked.

Your symptoms describe it to a tee. If it's the clutch which I highly suspect you may get some help from Honda.
On our 08 they extended the warranty to 100k and 7 yrs.
Google CR-V A/C problems, you'll see tons of listings describing your problem.
Ours went last summer after working off and on for a couple months.
Maybe. Do a little research on the Internet and see what you come up with. If I remember correctly most of the total failures were pre- 2007 models but I could be wrong. I also read somewhere that road salt, dirt led to the failure. Since you're in Maine I'm sure there's lots of road salt. The 2010's are probably Ok since I read that Honda did some re-engineering on the compressor post 2005.$3000?! Whew! Do I need to worry about my 04? We have 2. 2010 and 2004. I picked up a new relay at VIP and it's in my glove box for that next time the A/C goes out.
