could be the above and/or battery, if its a 2018 on original battery could be draining just enough to simulate a short. Honda batteries should be swapped (personally) at 2.5/3 yrs max regardless of what techs testers or gauges tell youSounds like something is probably shorting out in your steering wheel.
There was a TSB from Honda a few years back that corrected an issue with a limited number of CRVs having improperly deburred metal in the steering wheel that could then cut or short the wiring harness in the steering wheel. I don't know if that is the case with hour CRV, but it would be prudent to have this issue diagnosed and corrected by a Honda dealer.
