05 Honda crv lx awd gets lousy mpg 10 to 15mpg mix driving Honda dealer claims nothing wrong PS had new stereo and small power amp prof installed could this be the problem please help very disguisted?
If you do a lot of stop and go drving, ie..city driving, you will get poor milage. Second Opinion I would go to another dealer for a second opinion--and then take that back to your dealer. My '97 CR-V, with almost 100,000 mi., still gets 21 mpg mixed driving. first the amp has nothing to do with it, the only way you would get that kind of gas mileage , you would have to floor it from light to light. i dont know your mileage, maybe its time for a major tune up, but alot of things can lead to poor gas mileage, dirty fuel system(injectors,filter) bad spark plugs, dirty air filter, low tire pressure,also using cheap gas, all can play a part in poor gas mileage. My Humble Opinion... I also have an 05 CR-V that was getting pretty crumby gas mileage. I managed to do a few changes that seemed to help a lot. First and foremost I had my tires checked. They needed some air and an alignment. Then I replaced my air filter (this is an easy do it yourself project). Then I replaced both cabin filters, also a nice do it yourself project. My local dealer was going to charge me $250 to replace the cabin filters. You can find a good video on You Tube showing you how to do it yourself for about $25. Now I have no way of knowing if everything helped to improve my gas mileage, but before the changes I was getting about 18 mpg. Now I get about 24. A HUGE difference with such high gas prices. Good Luck!

Hey Josh==Clean the battery cables first on both ends. Then check the starter solonoid. Also make sure there is a good ground between the engine and the body. GoodluckJoe
What could be wrong with a 1994 Honda Civic that idles up and down from 1000 to 2000 rpm when stopped and gets hot after about 10 minutes of driving?
Answer . You are most likely low on coolant. Bleed the cooling system after you add coolant to get any air out.......
1992 Honda Accord wont start I just had to replace my main relay. My car wouldn't start either. Now it starts every time I turn the key.I have a 1989 Honda Civic. When it g…ot hot, it would not start. I also replaced the main relay, which I found online for like 30 dollars, and replaced it myself. It was very easy to do and I have never had a problem since.

\n. \n The computer knows \n. \n. \nIf the check engine light is on, that means the computer has set a code, a number, that will need to be read by a diagnostics unit.… Some places like Autozone may still do it for free. Once you have the code, you then need to determine what part is setting the code. For example you may have a code for low fuel pressure. It could be the fuel pump, or it could be one fuel injector, it may be all of your injectors, it may be a blocked fuel line so as you can see the problem is usually linked to a series of parts and the way to determine which part is failing is by testing the parts. Some of this can be done without electronic equipment and some cannot. You may have a blocked fuel filter. I suggest you start with a new fuel filter which is a maintenace item anyway if you haven't replaced it, and possibly a new air filter as well. If you engine is starving for air it will run poorly as well. These 2 filters should be maintained regularly. It takes 3 things for an engine to run, fuel, air and spark. Go get your codes read and then determine a path to finding the problem step by step.

Your Honda CRV 2001 sometimes stalls out at a stop sign when the brakes are applied what could be wrong and potential fixes Thanks for any help?
Engine stalling when applying brakes is usually indicative of a leaky brake booster. The brake booster uses and stores engine vacuum while driving to assist your braking effor…t (power brakes). When the booster's air diaphragm is leaking air, applying brakes causes a substantial vacuum leak in the intake manifold, causing the engine to stall.
Well, mine is an '02 and there are two screws at the bottom of the trim that surrounds the radio and climate control. Then there are four bolts holding the radio in place, one… at each corner. You may have disconnect the harnesses for lighting and climate contols to get that whole trim piece out of your way. Hope this helped.

Go to your library and get the Chiltons book for your car
It's a warning sign to the owner "The transmission oil is low, or it needs to be looked up A.S.A.P...
First - as basic as it sounds, check the coolant in your cooling system to make sure it is at proper level. Then - after the engine has been running for 10-15 minutes look at …your dashboard temperature gauge. If the needle is very low down on the temperature scale your cooling system theromstat may have gone bad and it is stuck in the open ('fail-safe') position. This does not allow the engine coolant to warm up properly for either optimal engine performance or warm the coolant enough to deliver heat to the cabin heater.

Honda radios have a security feature which prevents their use if they are stolen. This security feature is activated if the radio is disconnected from the battery (I.E. batt…ery in car replaced). There should be a security code in your owners manual. Enter the correct code, and the radio will work. If you don't have the original owners manual, (or you can't find the information), you will have to go to a Honda dealer. They will have to verify ownership of the car/radio and can then look up the code.
In Honda CR-V
First: Check the owner's manual. If you're lucky, sometimes the dealer or former owner will have written down the security code number somewhere in the manual (inside the fro…nt cover, or on the page that describes the radio operation, are favorite places). Also check the interior of the glove compartment - sometimes the dealer will affix a sticker containing the radios serial number and/or security code, there. IF NOT: You will need to retrieve the radio SERIAL NUMBER . On SOME radios you can do this by holding down both the number 1 and the number 6 buttons simultaneously as you turn the radio on. If you have one of those radios, the serial number will appear in the tuning window when you turn it on. IF NOT: You will need to loosen the radio and slide it far enough out of the dashboard in order to read the serial number off the plate that is affixed either on the back, or the bottom, of the radio case. When you have gotten the serial number - either call the Honda Customer Service 800 number, or stop by your local Honda dealer and give them the serial number and they should be able to give you the anti-theft security code for your radio. WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU WON"T FORGET IT! This will happen every time the battery is disconnected or goes dead.

COMMENT: You are asking for probably more trouble and expense than it is worth to do it. The wiring and electric motors and the actuating mechanisms for all doors would have t…o be installed, and then wired up to the vehicle's electrical system. I'm not saying it can't be done - but it would hardly be worth the time, trouble, and expense.

I bought a used Honda CRV LX 4WD. And the cigarette lighter was notin there. I feel there is no cigarette lighter in this model.
