Dear All,
I need your support on some issues which I'm currently facing since day one of my purchase. I live in the Middle East and have purchased a brand new Honda CRV 2019.

1) The vehicle center top dome light works but it is actually supposed to get dim gradually and automatically go off once I get inside and switch on the engine. However, the lights only get illuminated when I open the door and remain continually on and I dunno why this problem exists. I tried changing the setting in the three stages available, however no use.
2) When I turn on the ignition I start playing the audio (MP3) from my USB the track plays properly however after approx 2 minutes the track display screen info becomes blank and stops playing that particular track. I initially thought that there was an issue with the USB device so I purchased a brand new one to confirm but the same issue exists. After I manually start/resume playing the track again it always works fine. This same issue happens even if the track continues from my last playing time after I return to start my car. I have observed that this track playing from the USB issue is repetitive after turning off and on the infotainment screen. (Attached photos 2 & 3)
3) Is there any way to update the Firmware and software revision of the built-in infotainment system.
4) Is there any way in which we can view the photos of the albums on one single screen by swiping across using the built-in infotainment system.
5) I noticed that the setting to view/check the oil level isn't available on the instrument panel.
6) After I turn off and turn on the engine I observed a shutter kind of noise heard whenever pilot in an aircraft activates its breaks and releases the parking brakes. This similar noise is also heard whenever I engage and disengage the parking brakes.
7) Twice this week, I have noticed a flaw in the infotainment system after starting up the engine and driving. The infotainment system gets hanged up initially and displays a black screen. Even the lane watch image doesn't appear, in fact, nothing shows up. However, during the second instance, I found that the system started responding but was painfully slow to respond. (Attached photo 1)

Sadly not familiar with Bahraini Honda dealerships - I do know more about Al Futtaim out of Dubai/UAE - they're one of the very best. But alas, you arent there so thats no use.

Given you say your car is new - theres a lot of issues you raise - I'd take it back to your dealership and go thru each fault with them first.

I've got a '19 and it's been problem free except for a little weirdness with the infotainment system. But it always fixes itself.

Check the manufacturer tag on the driver's door frame. Where and when was it assembled?

I checked and found that the vehicle was manufactured in the USA but it doesn't mention which plant in the USA.

I have looked up my VIN number info online & found that the vehicle was manufactured in East Liberty plant in Ohio, USA.

Weirdness with dome lights and radio are almost always caused by a faulty body control module or the wiring/contacts of the system, any manufacturer's car. But it's for the dealership to take care of. Assemble good documentation of the conditions the issues pop up over a few weeks/months and give them the exact description when you take it to the first service. Inform them well in advance so they can prepare for the extra warranty hours.

Regarding your Q6: it's very likely you are hearing auto parking brake on/off. Most new cars do this. Unless you have a manual handbrake?
