Transmission System problem and Blind Spot Warning System problem

3000 9
I have a 2020 Honda CRV-Hybrid. At 5000 miles the car showed both a Transmission and Blind Spot Warning system problem came on. The dealer said they fixed it but the car is now approaching 12,000 miles and the same thing happened again.

Has anyone else had this problem?

First I’ve heard of this issue. Sounds like a trip back to the dealer is in order. What did they say was the fix was the first time?

They changed the transmission fluid. What's really crazy is the car continued to drive ok though the blind spot indicators did not come on when cars passed me. The first time it happened I happened to be close to my Honda dealer and took it directly there. Once it was turned off and restarted the ready to drive message came on rather than the transmission and blind spot warnings

Also, this time it is a Sunday so I drove home with no problems. I'll take it to the dealer tomorrow

I took it to the dealer and there was a different code that stated "excessive clutch slippage" Since they couldn't reproduce the problem, there was nothing for them to do. Both times the messages did not come back on after turning the car on and off and the car drove without problems.

Has anyone else had this happen where a warning message comes on but then goes away after turning the car on and off? It seems to me this must be a software problem rather than a hardware problem and like, often is the case with a computer, the problem is solved by turning it off and on.

Sorry to hear of your problems. I have been reading this forum for some time now and there are several times where people suggest a "Hard ReStart". My understanding (and I am not even close to being a mechanic) is that you unhook the battery and wait for 10 minutes to hook it back up. Apparently this help to "restart" the system and correct some of the software issues -- like a cellphone. May I suggest that you look into this further and hopefully it will help --- other than that I wish you a good day.

My problem with the transmission and Blind Spot Warning system problem came on again. I pulled over and restarted the car. There were no warning indicators on the restart and my transmission and blind spot indicators were working. The last 2 times I took it to the dealer and they did a transmission flush and said because it is an intermittent problem, there's nothing else to do. Still looking for someone else who has had this problem and maybe knows what's really going on with my 2020 CRV Hybrid

Seems that after so many trips to the dealer for a major problem such as a transmisssion and that it appears it can not be fixed -- time for lemon laws to reviewed. If you take it to the dealer this time I would also follow up with a call to Honda USA and open a case about the problem and that the dealer can not fix it.

What exactly did they fix at 5000 miles? Sounds like they need a "do over".

Anyway.. warranty is in full effect.. so head straight to the dealer and have them sort it out for youl

Is there any actual issue with the transmission though? Or is it a bogus indicator or a flaky sensor? We have not been presented with enough info to determine so far.. so kind of early to start squeezing the "lemon law" clause here in my view. Not every difficult repair cycle requires lawyers and lemon laws.

Besides... lemon laws vary by state/province... and have specific terms and conditions, which honestly Honda generally will pony up to a troubled owner BEFORE any actual lemon law trigger happens.

Basically, the dealer has done what the code told them to do but hasn't found a problem. They then told me that it's an intermittent problem and that if it happens again bring it back to check out again. I've notified Honda of America and provided all the details and asked them if it's their policy to allow for intermittent problems without fixing them. I also suggested that the system throwing the problem codes should be checked out.
