    At Last, I got won!!

    Glad you've made the leap into the wonderful world of the Honda CR-V and are enjoying it. It is probably the best car I have ever owned but had to go through a lot of others to finally discover it. The Airbag light may be because it is switched off and you would need to press a button or put the key into a switch to reactivate it? Not sure what the microphone is apart from being able to voice control certain things within the car, but didn't know the Satnav is controlled by this.

  4. Good evening fellow Honda owners. Yesterday I became the proud owner of a 2015 1.6 I-DTec Cr-v and what a wonderful gorgeousity it is. I have two very puzzling queries that I can't locate answers for in the expansive manuals. Firstly, there is a permanent icon on display in the small centre screen that relates to the passenger airbag. Is it supposed to always be on display? Just a bit concerned because the kids like taking turns up front and I haven't allowed it yet! Secondly, the car has the SD Navigation and I wondered what the small microphone in the bottom left hand corner of the unit is for? Thanks in advance and it's great to own a Honda at last!!

    Fitting running boards / side steps

    Thanks Trevor, much appreciated
  6. Sorry to hear about your misfortune....maybe worth ensuring that when you replace the components you invest in a security device to stop anyone from stealing it in the future https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=catalytic+converter+security&_sacat=0
  7. Hi....welcome to the Forum Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Firstly, your car is a 1.3 litre, judging by the cc which if it is lower than 50 (e.g. 1349cc) then it is a 1.3 litre. The Lambda sensors are 4 wire at the front and 2 wire at the rear as the rear does not have to have a heater (e.g. the other two wires are there for that reason). Cheap sensors are okay but get a branded one as cheap as you can. Agree with your sentiment about punishment for the offenders, it's just not on for them to render your car undrivable and make money from it while you have to shell out huge amounts to get back on the road Let us know how it all goes Cheers . Trevor
  8. Cat Burglar nicked my Cat. Neighbours had CCTV of the theft. It happened at 11:30 am, took 40 seconds. Trolley jack and a pipe cutter of some sort. They cut the wires to the lambda sensors and cut through the exaust pipes in front and behind the Cat. The rear cut was through the mid section exhaust pipe so that also needs replacing. OK I have questions that I need help with. Honda wanted over 2K for the parts, (Cat, 2 lambda sensors, mid section of exhaust pipe, and fitting kit.) OEM parts at that price are not an option so I went to the internet. My first problem/question was /is identifying my cars details . Some sites asked for the reg number so that was easy but others had drop down menus with letters and numbers to id the exact model. I only know what is printed on the V5 log book. So can anyone tell me what is missing from this list? Honda. Jazz SE CVT. 1339 cc. Engine number starts with L13A11... . It's petrol and it's automatic. Is this a 1.3 or a 1.4? I am guessing from this forum that it is a Mark 1 but the option I just got from a spares dealer was a 2002 Mk2 Hatchback or a 2002 GD Saloon. If I buy the sensors on ebay the price varies for new ones from £18 to £148 for one. Any advice please? Also there seems to be lots of "Pre cat" sensors and very few "Post cat" sensors. I have bought one of the pre cat £18 ones as I did it by phone and they said it would fit but they didn't have the rear sensor. Virtually all the listings also said "4 wire sensor". When I looked under my car at the cut wires it seemed that one had four wires and the other had only two wires. Any advice on this please? In the mean time I would like to suggest honda made it harder to steal the cats in the first place. I would also like to suggest that the government bring back the stocks and so when these b*****ds get caught they could be put in a public stock and let me have ten minutes of therapeutic anger management practice on them.
  9. Hello other Honda people and particularly Jazz people. I have joined this site as my catalytic converter has been stolen and I found out from the internet that Honda Jazz and Toyota Prius are the most targeted cars. I am going to fix it it myself as the Honda quote was an eye watering £2500 which is about the value of my car. I would like help with some questions about parts and things which I will post in the appropriate place on this site. Please have a look at my posts and PLEASE try and respond to me. Thanks

    Major faults on Jazz Sport

    Hi Ian.....welcome to the Forum That's very unlucky as a general rule, Honda's are very reliable and don't normally suffer from too many maladies. It may just be a Friday/Monday car but hopefully once the dealer fixes all the faults it may be sorted for many years to come with no further issues. Let us know how you get on with it all

    2003 Key will not start car

    If it will not physically fit and turn the ignition lock then it would more than likely require a replacement barrel. If you contact your local dealership they should be able to match one up to your original keys by special order or if not then you would have two keys which is not too much of an inconvenience really. It may be worth spraying some WD40 or similar into the lock and try the key again before committing to ordering parts
  13. I have a Honda Jazz 2003. The keys are not remote but maybe are worn so much that it will not start the car when inserted in the ignition. The key will open the doors though. How can I overcome the problem, do I have to buy a new ignition steering lock?

  15. Hi everyone. I have just joined the forum to see if I am just unlucky! I have a Jazz Sport that is only 10 months old. So far.... , the stop start system has failed and has to be reset by the dealer. a brand new clutch fitted as the one out of the factory was slipping badly as it was covered in grease, now the infotainment system has completely failed and I am waiting a new one. my dealer is very embarrassed by these faults and I am losing faith in the car. anyone else had such issues? Should I just cut my losses and sell up? Did not think Friday cars were possible these days!! thanks for any advice anyone can offer.

    Hi Bendybead, I too have just joined the forum having purchased my first CRV diesel 2011 with 103,000 miles FSH. I have owned Jaguar cars before especially with DPF 2.2 engine renowned for clogging and turbo cleaning on replacing the actuator. Like others, did my home work on Honda and engines and overall cars are excellent. I shopped around and like other comments found these with excess of 200,000 miles and rarely came across one with low miles in that age bracket. I researched all possible review sites and test driving sites and rarely come across negative comments (OK maybe on rear seating being a little stiff) but overall excellent choice. With DPF I was told when Jaguar driving was always use the premium diesel and not the supermarket stuff and wonder if Honda would recommend same? I was advised to check Diff oil change and when purchased, notice cornering loud so booked into Honda fixed priced servicing and at £85.00 got the work done and what a difference so maybe check if this has been done. But for reliability, they have a great track record.

    Fitting running boards / side steps

    Below are some links I found on 4x4 Direct website which may shed some light on the fitting procedure Up to 2012 - Fitting Guide (PDF) https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0015/1502/8545/files/Honda_CR-V_2007-2012_Side_Step_Fitting_Instructions.pdf?17907606410955683975 2012 onwards - Fitting Guide (PDF) https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0015/1502/8545/files/Honda_CRV_2012-2017_After_Market_Side_Step_Fitting_Guide.pdf?12855092772702160784
  19. Hi all, Looking for a bit of help. Has anyone fitted running boards ? I have a second hand set of genuine Honda parts and I have downloaded the fitting instructions which seems fairly straightforward. What I don’t have are the templates required to enable me to cut out access holes for the fitting brackets in the plastic underside panels. Can anyone help with this please, much appreciated Rob

    ABS & VSA Warning Lights stay on

    A local garage provided the assistance of their diagnostics machine to reset the VSA (obviously for a small fee)

    Is the ISHIFT the same as the sequential box

    I would have said that is the case

    Very Quiet here!

    Hi Jacques....welcome to the Forum Yes it is a bit quiet on here but I'm not entirely sure it is because they are so reliable, even though they do top the poles for most reliable car, year after year! So how's our CRV been overall....happy with it? cheers, Trevor

    Hi Oliver, thank you so much for the feedback. I'm new to Honda so your advice is truly appreciated. Thanks again.

    Very Quiet here!

    This forum seems to have very few posts and most of what's here, seems to be old. Is this because Hondas are so reliable, folk don't ever have to work on them? Thank you! J.

    Hi bendybead, regarding the mileage you can rarely go wrong with a Honda Diesel. I have a Honda Accord with the same 2.2l diesel and it has nearly 160k on the clock, with others on the market with up to 250k. With some research I’ve found that the turbos are reliable (again my car has the original). Finally the DPF filter will only really block up if your doing short, stop-start journeys, However, a long journey of above 40 mph for 20 minutes should clean it through. I’m not an expert as I’m new to driving so other perspectives might be useful. However, thought I could help I had similar questions when considering buying my own. Oliver. 😃

    ABS & VSA Warning Lights stay on

    It was the N/S/R sensor which was luckily easy to replace and solved this issue and then I just needed a diagnostics machine to reset the VSA. Thanks for the advice
