  2. Hello, First post here. I'll introduce myself fully but I need to get this sorted. Had my CR-V for about a year and I'm loving it. On Saturday the Car cut out while stopped in traffic. All electrics went so no hazards or steering. After 5-10 minutes it all powered back up and started as if nothing had happened. It then happened again on Tuesday night when I pulled into my drive. 11 minutes timed this time. Then restarted. I've had it with an auto-electrician today. No errors showing. Not even registering that it has been powered a loss of power. Battery, Fuses, Clutch Checked. Not sure about Ignition Switch (Not sure how this works with keyless entry/start?) I'm taking it back tomorrow but unless it cuts out when they are in it i'm not sure how they will find the fault. Obviously pretty dangerous as I drive country roads in the dark. Any suggestions? Anyone heard of this with this model? Driving around the country for Christmas so need to get this fixed! Thanks for any help you can provide. James

    Hello members .

    I just wanted to meet like-minded owners of the early CR-X as I’ve just acquired a nice original version and wondered if there are any meetings I can attend next year. Andy Cooke

    Replace radio

    Hi Julian.....welcome to the Forum I have a 2007 model CRV and it has the upgraded head unit with SatNav but saying that it is not much use with respect to technology compared to what is available in the aftermarket. I have considered changing it to a double-din unit, either X-Trons or even better a Japanese unit (Sony, Panasonic, etc)....far better technology and functionality with SatNav and other features, handsfree phone calls, Bluetooth other devices, WiFi, etc. Here's a link to a company that provides aftermarket solutions: http://www.iceboxauto.com/honda Let us know how you get on with this issue and if you do replace with an aftermarket unit then let us know which one you go for. Cheer . Trevor

    New member after all these years

    Hi Malcolm....welcome to the Forum The Accord will eventually, like most other cars, become a classic and if in great condition and the fact that you are looking after it so well in its golden years, then it will surely realise some value over time. Either way, its a wonderful thing to have to tinker with and fettle to keep in good working order. Feel free to post up a photo of it on here if you like. Cheers, Trevor

    2.0 i-VTEC MPG

    That would be a shame as the only other option would be LPG which would be cheaper to run the car on but would take some time to recoup the outlay

    Headlights not working

    Hi Craig....welcome to the Forum That is a very odd one, and probably best looked at by an auto-electrician if you have already checked everything through yourself. I cannot personally think of anything else to check if you have already gone through it all. Let us know what you find as would love to know what the problem was Cheers Trevor

    You don't need to remove the turbo as you run it through with it in situ. There are several different kits available so worth looking to see which one suits you best. Let us know how you get on with it

    Fitting parrot

    Hi Andy....welcome to the Forum Sorry, can't be of any help to you as it would be something quite specific that either someone who has fitted one in the past or someone who works in the car audio industry may be able to help you. Good to have you onboard Cheers . Trevor
  15. Not an ideal situation but at least for diagnostic purposes then it is what needs to be done. I would ensure that all lights (including boot light) are switched off and if it does go flat again then I'm sure they'll quickly find the fault

    Try some glass glue (not superglue as when it hardens it can crack glass) or otherwise you used to be able to get mirror self adhesive pads (not sure is you can still get them) Try Halfords to see what they have in stock

    Jazz owners handbook

    Just purchased a 2008 (57 plate) Jazz for my niece but there was no owners handbook in the car. Does anyone happen to have a spare one they don't need? Thanks.

    Disabling Alarm on CRV 2016

    Hi SimonUK...welcome to the Forum Do you have a screenshot photo of the page in the manual so that we can decipher the process of disarming the alarm (I assume you mean the ultra-sonics monitoring the interior) Cheers, Trevor

    Warranty claims

    I have to say that the technology used in Honda SatNavs and other onboard systems is way outdated compared to some other manufacturers....an area in which they could do with investing in.

    Hi All

    Hi willyh and welcome to the Club The CR-V is a superb car but I have to say, so is the Jag as well....definitely a lifestyle choice though. I love my CR-V for the pure reliability and available space inside and the comfort and..... Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor

    new crv satnav terrible

    I agree. the satnav as supplied in my brand new CRV top of the range 1.6dtec in January 2018 is crap. New roads in Lancashire as not on the database. The system also does not include traffic cameras as all stand alone Garmin systems do. Like you I an sticking to the Tom Tom which is a much better system. Pull your finger out Honda and get this sorted!!! I've never had trouble with Tom Tom in bad weather. Oh, if you want a MacDonalds - they are indicated!
