I searched but couldn't find what I was looking for. Sorry if this is a duplicate thread.

I'm sure I read somewhere that if you press and hold (or double press and hold?) the Unlock button on the key fob, it will run all 4 windows down and open the sunroof. Not sure if I have to enable something in the settings or if it just doesn't work on the '19s but I can't get it to work.

Any thoughts?

I think it would be a blessing if they removed it from the '19's! Several threads on people engaging it without knowing it on the 2017-18's. No way to disable it.

I have a keyfob case on order so I'm not worried about accidentally pressing the button. There have been a few times in the short time I've had this that it would have been a good option. Maybe they did away with it on the '19s?

Have you thought about reading the manual? It is on page 163.

Opening Windows and the Moonroof with the Remote
To open: Press the unlock button, and then within 10 seconds, press it again and keep it pressed. If the windows and moonroof stop midway, repeat the procedure.

Opening/Closing Windows and the Moonroof with the Key
To open: Unlock the driver’s door with the key. Within 10 seconds of returning the key to the central position, turn the key in the unlock direction and hold it there.
To close: Lock the driver’s door with the key. Within 10 seconds of returning the key to the central position, turn the key in the lock direction and hold it there.

Window auto rolldown & key issues

I have a 2018 and this is a miserable "feature" - it would be great if it is not included in the 2019. You can actuate this by hitting the unlock key and then immediately pushing it again for a few seconds. It has happened several times when the keys were rattling around in my pocket, and customers complain about the car getting soaked in a storm. I bought a zippered key fob holder that isn't foolproof to keep the keys from getting pressed but it does help.

A mystery about Honda design is that if you accidentally press the unlock button as you walk away, the car locks itself (another undesirable feature in my opinion). So, what's it going to be Honda? More security, or more insecure features for lazy people? It seems like these things were done by different departments with different goals. By the way, the weird window/sunroof rolldown feature is shared by many other modern cars.

Finally, I'm not happy that you can't just put the key in the fob into a lock to drive the car when the fob is out of battery (or you got it wet while hiking in the mountains, for example). Now you can be stranded somewhere in the wilderness. A spare fob is $300. These issues, against an otherwise excellent car seriously make me question buying another Honda.

A Google search would lead to it, the one and only Owner's Manual which you can download from here (675 pages):
https://owners.honda.com/vehicles/information/2019/CR-V/manuals
As a new owner you can also request a printed copy (standard owners manual glovebox booklet) of the full 675 page manual. I did and Honda corporate mailed it to me within 2 weeks. However, I keep it as a reference book - no way I (or anyone) has time to read 675 pages!

For the 2018 CRV, if you push unlock and release it and then push unlock again within 10 seconds and hold it, all the windows will come down. It is possible unintentionally to accomplish this indoors, away from the car, when digging around in the pocket where you have the key fob looking for something else, which is not cool, so perhaps the feature was deleted from the 2019 model, but I guess not.

Opening all windows

I just tried it on my 2017 CRV and it worked. Double click and then hold unlock button on key fob. I did not have to do anything with vehicle settings. Thanks for the tip!

The FOB works on a form of near field communication to start the car. In simplest terms there is a coded signal reflector "chip" inside that let's the car know it's near. It does this by reflecting a signal sent out by the vehicle. It also uses this when you lock/unlock at the handle of the door. Only the button functions are reliant on the battery. In short, you can have a dead remote battery, and dunk it in water for days. If it's in the car the car will start. Short of traumatic physical damage like running it over or putting it in a blender it would be hard to kill it with normal use. If you lose it..... Can't help you there.

The following information is in the owner's manual:

If the Smart Entry Remote Battery is Weak

If the beeper sounds and the To Start, Hold Remote Near Start Button message appears on the driver information interface; and the ENGINE START/STOP button flashes and the engine will not start. Start the engine as follows:

1. Touch the center of the ENGINE START/STOP button with the H logo on the smart entry remote while the ENGINE START/STOP button is flashing.
The buttons on the smart entry remote should be facing you.
  • The ENGINE START/STOP button flashes for about 30 seconds.
2. Depress the brake pedal and press the ENGINE START/STOP button within 10 seconds after the beeper sounds and the ENGINE START/STOP button changes from flashing to on.
  • If you don’t depress the pedal, the mode will change to ACCESSORY

If you follow this very very long discussion you will see what is happening. The FOB has a bad design. If you press accidentally the Unlock and then Unlock again it rolls down all the windows AND sunroof. Happened to me 3 4 times once in the rain, both on the accord and crv. It really sucks and Honda should just fix it by providing it as a disable option.
