  2. hi and welcome, worth a try putting up on the facebook owners pages too, but as you mentioned, we cant get far with pointing you in the right direction without a pic of the car or reg.
  3. Last week
  4. Hi. I'm looking to buy a mark 8 Civic and in the photo ads I can see a button on the dash saying CD/Aux. I would like to play music on Spotify through my phone and a 3.5mm cable directly through the head unit, is there an aux in connector on these vehicles that takes a 3.5mm cable and if so where is it located? Thanks. David.

  6. Thank you kindly I'll try that
  7. Quite possibly it is a worn DMF then
  8. Hi Dave....welcome to the Forum I suppose it is down to personal choice with engine and transmissions but I would highly recommend road testing any variations to make you own decision. Unfortunately, some car reviews are personal opinions rather than true fact so it is worth looking at it independently. Most Honda's nowadays are completely trouble-free but always worth getting a good warranty with the purchase just in case
  9. Hi, 7 months later my car still does this, I've just put up with it, been to garage they said to change the whole clutch and dmf, i have a rattle on the passenger side when clutch is pressed in it goes away. Was told it's the throw out bearing. Apparently there is a little fork mechanism rattling. Really annoying put gonna ignore it until it falls apart
  10. Hi Trevor,yes,a very sensible suggestion that...will do.
  11. Hi....welcome to the Forum The 3rd Generation CR-V ran from 2007 to 2011 and was facelifted halfway through production From 2011 this was then referred to as the 4th Generation, which was also facelifted later on.
  12. Hi...welcome to the Forum You have used quite a good diagnostic process so far and it looks like everything is normal except for the SatNav face playing up. If it were me, I would pull the fuse for the SatNav / Audio and see if the power drain still occurs. If not, then chances are it is a fault unit and needs replacing.
  13. Thanks for the feedback, fitted some aftermarket bulbs to a CR-V a couple of weeks ago and got them from eBay for around £12 each and they worked fine.
  14. Hi....welcome to the Forum I believe there may be additional audio settings in the system, found this before on earlier generation CR-V and it was a different setting for SatNav than it was for Audio....just got to play with the settings or refer to the extensive manual
  15. Hi, We own a 2009 Honda Crv EX 2.2 diesel car for a year now. A couple of months back we've noticed the car battery went dead twice on us so we decided to invest in a new one. To our surprise 2 weeks later the new one went dead too! So we swapped the old battery (thankfully didn't get rid of it!) and charged up the new one (also double checking nothing had been left on inside the car). After 3 days when opening the car door, I strangely saw the sat Nav fascia was stuck half open (like it had a power surge) and low and behold, battery dead again. All becoming a bit like groundhog day now, so decided to get it booked in with the mechanics for the following week. Meanwhile, new battery back back in.. On the 5th day the sat Nav fascia went berserk when car was started and driven - lifting up and down or getting stuck... Really weird! Fast forward a few more days and the mechanic can see nothing wrong. He has checked the voltage, the alternator, had the sat Nav out, car running with CD playing to see if it acts out.. Every combination... But it has been fine with no obvious faults...The sat Nav fascia didn't even glitch! So it's left the mechanic quite perplexed in the 2 hours. Funnily enough as I drove back home from the mechanics the fascia started doing it's thing again! Typical! 🙄🙄🙄🙄 Most likely the new battery will drain down in 7days again, so there obviously a parasetic drain somewhere surely!? Anyone who has been in the same predicament or has any expertise of what might be the problem please let me know! P. S. Myself and hubby are not car savvy in the slightest, so please bear with us if we struggle with questions... Things may take a while to Google! 😅😅😅 *Please see video link below... https://youtu.be/3xGENQPsFZ8
  16. Hi, our car has just recently developed a problem, the steering wheel switch stopped selecting manual when pressed, my wife uses it frequently to utilise some engine braking when going down hill. The switch normally cycles round three functions , then it only cycled two functions and now it does nothing. It must control a relay I assume but can find no information in the haynes manual. Any ideas please? Steve.

  18. Hi.....welcome to the Forum I have heard this too and not surprised as Honda have always been way behind on any multi-media system updates. I think with the current situation then you may have to wait a little longer until a newer version comes out
  19. Unless as you say they are using the USB as an AUX source rather than the traditional small round plug of old
  20. Hi...welcome to the Forum It's all to do with the EURO emissions and how much CO2 they produce, so even though they are more fuel efficient they do actually pollute more. For the small difference over the year I would just go with the one with the best economy and claim back the increased cost that way
  21. Great result and excellent diagnostic skills to find the fault. Any chance of posting up a photo of the affected area of the fusebox in case anyone else encounters the same issue. Thanks
  22. Hi.....welcome to the Forum Great looking car, and has a great stance on those wheels. Not sure whether you may need to source the correct wipers through Honda on this one. If you try to negotiate a trade price then the cost won't be too astronomical Good to have you onboard

  26. Hey, I used to have a 53plate accord 2l i-vetch sport and it had a fab sound system as standard. Someone told me it was bose, however there were no branding tags to suggest that.. I now have a civic type s and its pants in comparison. Does anyone know what the audio equipment was used in the accord? I've tried to google but cant find anything concrete. I'd like to replicate as close as possible into the civic. Tia
