2005 Honda CR-V QuestionsRefine by vehicle
97K mileage - My engine ! warning, parking brake, and VSA lights are all on, but we have not been able to identify any issues and the car seems to be running fine.
Only other symptom is the battery seems to drain faster than it should: in summer, 10 days parked = dead battery, in winter, its 3-4 days. Have replaced battery twice. We love the car and would like to hang on to it, but it won't pass inspection at this point. THANK YOU in advance for any assist.
Light came on immediately after leaving garage. Read that I may need to have VSA reset
Dealer says it's the compressor?
All of my cardoors lock/unlock with the driver's side master button except the front passenger door. Anything I might be able to look at before bringing it in and possibly being told it's something very expensive? Thank you in advance for any help.
I do not have a fluid leak just air from around the bottom of master cylinder mounting flange. Is there a gasket between the booster and master cylinder that has failed and needs to be replaced??
My trunk indicator light will flicker on and off when I'm driving but my trunk is closed. Also my dashboard lights have started to fade in areas and on the driver side door the switch to lock the doors will only unlock. It won't lock the doors. Are the problems connected. Should I be worried my car is about to die?
Hi! My CRV has 150,000 miles. I was just told by my mechanic that it needs new front and rear brakes as well as a new head gasket....
Should I repair or start shopping for a new vehicle?
2005 Honda CRV ...significant highway miles including some in high humidity area (Houson)
After body work done, I noticed "engine malfunction" light came on. Body shop employee had driven it approx. 50 miles round-trip with light on (or intermittently flashing) but did not inform me of it - I had to inquire. I told them it wasn't on when I dropped the car off. The insurance company said it's not related to the accident, so won't cover it. After leaving insurance company, the car made a clunking sound, slowed and stalled. They had it towed to the dealer. Code 84-1. Replaced abs and vsa modulator, rocker arm oil switch, & brake fluid at cost of $2,640. After repairs, car has had to be towed back to dealer 2 more times within 4 days due to the same kind of stalling, with panel lights coming on each time. The second time they removed the v-tec solenoid valve & cleaned debris from the filter screen. Yesterday I picked up the car from dealer, drove it 20 miles, and it wouldn't restart after a short stop at the bank. We jump-started it and did a battery check, finding a bad cell. Replaced the battery and managed to drive home (25 miles). Test drove it today and car stalled out again (3rd time) and had to be towed back to dealer! As a side-note, several months ago we had a local "mechanic" install wheel bearings. Could incorrect installation of rear wheel bearings be related to the car's loss of power? Can someone PLEASE help? Thank you!
Problem occures when driven a few hundred yards and remains until car is switched off and then restarted. VSA lighr goes off then but engine light remains on.
I wonder how much Honda and/or its dealers are profiting from their own bad engineering. I just spent $3300 to fix this, $936 was for labor.
