I've had it for a month now. It's OK. But last night I parked my CRV in a large shopping center parking lot to return and find all the windows down. So needless to say I'm not that very impressed with Honda. When I found out Honda has known about this problem for three years and refuses to do anything about it, I'm even less impressed.

I found the reason on here and other forums, so I thought I ought to join up just in case someone finds a cure.

Carabiner on a belt loop.

In triple digit ambient temps the remote start/windows open really helps cooling the car off. I really like the feature.....never thought of it as a problem/defect. Common sense would dictate that any buttons on a key fob can get pushed when the fob is stuffed in a pocket/purse. I doubt Honda is the only manufacturer with this great feature.

Welcome! Get yourself a key fob cover on Amazon and enjoy the car!

The little things are naturally bigger on a new car. It's like obsessing over scratches. Are you planning anything fun with it?

Do you have the same animosity when you butt dial your phone too??? Because that is effectively what you did with your Fob here.

You may not agree, but Honda does not see an issue here.... and it is working as intended. It's a deliberate feature on the Fob.... and it is possible to jam the button on your Fob in your pocket or purse and trigger the event.

Personally, I do feel they should let the owner turn the feature off in the vehicle settings if they choose to... but that's the limit of any needed action in my view.

Get a Fob cover, as suggested above, and put the Fob in a separate pocket or (or if a purse.. a separate pocket) and eliminate accidentally holding down the button "butt dial" fashion.

All the covers I find do not stop the problem of accidental actuation. If you have one that is otherwise please let me know.

True, but it isn't covered in the owners manual and I don't keep the phone anywhere near my person, like in a pocket. I have a lot of respect for ionizing radiation and cancer.

There's a hat for that.
