Honda CR-V Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Honda CR-V based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
A faulty transmission range switch can cause a no start condition and Check Engine light (MIL) illumination. Transmission removal is not needed to replace the transmission range switch.
A worn speed sensor drive gear can cause a surge when using cruise control and illuminate the Check Engine light. Transmission replacement will be needed.
On certain models the water pump bearing can go bad and cause a growl type noise from the front of the engine.
A clunking noise heard from the front suspension may be caused by the flange bolts for the upper control arm.
A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.
On certain models a faulty radiator fan motor can cause the AC not to cool properly. Replacing the faulty motor should correct this problem.
The AC idler pulley can fail causing a growling noise from the engine. A new idler pulley will be needed.
