1999 Honda CR-V Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1999 Honda CR-V

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.

A groaning noise from the rear differential heard while going through turns can be caused by differential fluid break down. Servicing the rear differential will generally correct this concern.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

The electrical contacts in the ignition switch may be worn. This may cause the engine to stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin by June 14, 2002.

An improperly routed under dash wire harness could be damaged by contact with the brake light switch. This may result in a blown fuse, which can affect critical electrical components. Dealers will install a 70mm protective, corrugated plastic tube over the wire harness.

Great car, I got 285K miles on it, no major problems. Let's see an American car do that! Liked it so much I bought a 2005 CRV.
