Honda CR-V Problem Report
Honda CR-V AC Not Blowing Cold
The AC compressor may seize resulting in loss of cold air from the AC vents. Often when the compressor fails in the fashion, debris is spread through out the entire air conditioning system resulting in very expensive repairs.
This is a common defect on a lot of Honda's. Honda is aware of the defect and rather than issue a recall is stiffing their customer base for the repairs. This should be a recall. I went into my dealer with literally thousands of pages of printouts of issues with the compressors. They fixed mine, but there are thousands of complaints where customers had to pay. Google it. - Visitor
A/C just stopped cooling from one minute to the next. - Visitor
A/C quit blowing cold air. Loud "banging" sound occurred with a slight smell and "squeeling" noise. Thought something was falling out of my engine. Just happened today, have not had looked at yet. - Gary Andrews
Air worked fine, then just started blowing warm/hot air. - Visitor
ac started blowing warm air. It was working the day before. Took it to the dealer and had to pay 1,200$ to replace the ac compressor. - Visitor
A/C stopped working, blowing warm air. No sounds. Dealerhips, who to this point has done all maint/repair, says the compressor seized dispersing filings throughout the system, requirimg most of the system to be replaced.. Repair estimated to be a little over $3,000.. - Visitor
Started blowing hot air when I started car, ac worked fine when I went into store - Visitor
Will not hold freon charge, light comes on when ac button is pressed and hear the engine load, but no cold air - Visitor
My Honda CR-V 2003 started making loud noise when the A/c is switched on. Took it to the Honda dealer where I get all my work done. I was quoted $4,000 for replacing the compressor after all discounts applied on labor and parts. Before discount, the quote was for $5,000+. Is is really supposed to be that expensive. I am at a loss whether to get this fixed or trade in this car for a new one. Dealer is not very hopeful of any help from the Honda Goodwill repair program. - Visitor
Dealer quotes 3000.00 to fix. - Visitor
blowing warm air for several months -- decided not to investigate as I'm in Maine. Right front started smoking.... thought it was seized brake. Opened up hood, heard belt snap, towed to shop, and now estimated $1,200. just like everyone else. - Visitor

Air conditioner is blowing hot air - Visitor
A/C was on, doing fine, then started blowing warm air. Thought it needed freon and was told it needed a new compressor. Estimate of $900. - Visitor
Air conditioner is blowing hot air all the time now. Good news by having the ac off, gas mileage is awesome. Have not brought it in to get fixed yet after seeing the quotes. Shame, I love this car. - Visitor
ac does not blow cold. - Visitor
car blowing hot air when i turn the ac on.Ac comes on for a minute and goes off - Visitor
Air blows cold when stopping hard or accelerating. Then stops. Can not depend on it when it is needed. Blows cold when it wants. Sounds like the dealer wants $4000.00 to fix with no guarantee. - Visitor
