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.......
Answer . \nThe easiest answer to this question is "www.installdr.com", there is a complete .pdf including diagrams on how to install the stereo for a 1992 prelude.
Answer for 2002 CR-V anyway . I have a 2002 and I don't think the 2003 is much different. It's the easiest thing in the world to install and the kit was only around $80 and that was air shipped from japan. You just get a little green module about the size of a pager and 2 remotes in a box. In …the center console in the dash, where the caddy is, that little pocket actually comes out after removing a few screws to reveal the wiring of the car behind it. (The instruction manual that comes with the kit has pictures of how to do this.) You simply clip the module to a matching colored plug, replace the console panel and your done. I used the manufacturers kit to do this and it took me about 15 minutes total to complete (and I'm a girl). I'm not sure it's the same with an aftermarket kit. \n. \nGood Luck! (MORE)
Answer . what you do is look on the sides of the stereo and look for like slots or holes near the right and left side and there is a tool that you will need to get to stick in their that will make it able to slide it out. if their are small round pin holes try and stick paper clips in the holes …to release the lock. otherwise if that doesnt work you should take it to circut city or a stereo place and just have them pull it out for you for a coupla bucks.

1998 Honda CRV Lx noticed a rattling sound under the front driver's side Could this be the struts It only rattles when you go over a bump in the road?
Answer . I have a 98 ex that did the same thing, and it was a broken cover on the strut. It broke off around the top of the mount and the tube was just rattling free around the strut inside the spring. This was on the front driver side. The rear pax side strut is also leaking, so I will be replac…ing that one as well. Not looking forward to pulling the springs again. (when we puchased this vehicle, it had springs that were all lowered 1.5 inches, probably leading to the strut failure. I replaced all the springs and should have done struts at the same time. Had we only known we would not have purchased an altered vehicle. Buyer beware!!) Good luck.. Answer . I had the same problem, and it turned out it was a sway bar link. I really noticed it over bumpy roads.. Answer . There is also a recall on some years - check with dealer for applicability to your vehicle. The recall states a rattling noise when going over bumps is caused by the upper mounting bolts on the front struts. (MORE)

Answer . \nThese have the armrest between the front seats that hold cassette tapes and a bunch of stuff. Clean out this storage armrest and notice the door on the bottom of compartment. Using a regular screwdriver - remove that small door. Also remove the cup holder and it's door (cup holder jus…t lifts out) Then remove the ashtray. Remove the two screws that are on bottom of armrest below the door and there is one more screw before armrest can be removed. It is at the front/top where the cup holder was, behind the shifter. You do not need to remove the screws below on bottom where cup holder was, just the one screw along top front edge.\n. \nLift off armrest piece. \n. \nThere is one screw behind where ashtray was and two screws on top corners in back of shifter. Once those screws removed the plastic dash piece around the radio will unsnap and move aside to expose bolts that hold in radio along bottom/rear of radio. (MORE)
97 dodge ram aftermarket stereos internal amp gets very hot after 10 mins then sound fades out. Passenger side wires have been diconnected and stereo is working fine. Whats the problem?
if you dont have the speaker on the passenger side hooked up and you still are using the radio that is your problem. When the radio sends out the electical pulses to the speaker and there is no speaker there fot the current to go the current will then go back to the radio and fry the amp. You could …blow the amp out of your radio if you dont hook up antother speaker to the wires.. You can change the balance setting on your radio and move it totally to the driver side. you will lose the speaker in the back on the passenger side but you will have fixed the problem. (MORE)

Well if you have a stock deck the first thing you need to do is make sure you buy a dash install kit with the after market deck you want to install.

Answer . you may have to cut the panels.... also. Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a professional shop manual available to make copies of for FREE...make the time to take time to read up on your vehicle, and work like the PRO'S! Good luck :) . … You don't need to cut the wires at all, I just got mine installed in 5 minutes with the adapter speaker plug, I got them from Amazon for 16 bucks but you save a lot of time and you don't mess the wire system of your car with the black tape and stuff..

What could be the problem when you hit the brakes on 2000 Honda CRV and you hear a thumping noise in the rear?
Answer . Loose rear lug-nuts, bad wheel bearings, worn suspension bushings/struts, bent control arm, loose/damaged brakes.
\n. \n Answer \n. \nIt means that the computer has detected a condition, has stored a "problem code" and wants you to use a code scanner to find out what's wrong. Code scanners are available at auto parts retailers. You can usually borrow, rent or buy them and retailers will often help you fi…gure it all out in hopes that they can sell you the part.\n. \n Answer \n. \nA Check Engine Light could mean hundreds of different things. The only way to know for sure is to use an OBD 2 code reader. Every car since 1996 has a port for this, usually on the driver's side under the dash. The reader can be had for around $100, but you'll also need the repair manual for your vehicle ($20-$30), so that you know what the codes mean. Both of these can be obtained at an auto parts store. Unfortunately, even having the code(s) may not tell you exactly what needs to be repaired or replaced. It may just tell you where the fault lies, narrowing the list of possibilities down to 5 or 10 (if you're lucky). Not trying to sound grim, but the fact is that a dealer or other repair shop will have a much easier time of finding the problem than you will. And for the money you'd spend on the reader and the manual, it'd probably be a wash anyway. But if it's an easy fix, then you may be able to handle the actual repair yourself. \nAs an aside, if you plan on doing your own repair or maintenance work, you'd do well to buy the repair manual anyway. It'll show you how to do everything from oil changes and brake pad replacement to taking the entire car apart and putting it back together again.\n. \n Answer \n. \nIf you scan the code yourself you may find that it's something as simple as an oxygen sensor. If that's the case, the computer will specify which oxygen sensor has failed. Of course, it may indicate that something else has failed, but in either case, your auto parts retailer will help you figure out which part has failed. At least give it a try yourself first before you pay a dealer to fix something that could be easy and inexpensive to repair in your own garage. (MORE)
\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 settin…g 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. (MORE)
Answer . \nCheck to see if there is power at the fuse and then test the hot for fuesable links and contiuity.I think there is a couple. make sure sure power is coming out of the fuse box switch check everywhere. Good luck
Answer . \nif its a factory radio, then the fuse box...\n. \nif it's an add on radio, you'll have to trace the power wire to the fuse box or battery\n. \nd
Answer . Try powering the stereo up with jumpers to a power source. If the stereo still won't work with direct power check to see if it might have a anti theft stereo. If no then replace the unit. If it works with jumpers then look for a break in the wire or a bad fuse. Easiest fix in this case w…ould be to run a new wire from the fuse panel, (key on power) to the stereo. These cars are known for stereo problems, my daugher has an 1989 929 and the stereo dies for days and then works if someone turns it off by accident instead of just turning off the volume... (MORE)
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 effort (power brakes). When the booster's air diaphragm is leaking air, applying brakes causes a substantial vacuum leak in the in…take manifold, causing the engine to stall. (MORE)

You installed a new battery in your 03 Honda crv now the express driver side WINDOW feature doesnt work?
If the question was referring to the operation of the drivers side window - then, the answer is that it should not have had any effect on the operation of that switch at all. Altho I don't like coincidences, I suppose that it is possible that the switch may just happened to fail at the same time the… battery was replaced.. The AUTO function has to be reset. . 1) Start the engine. Push down on the driver's window switch until the window is fully open. . 2) Pull back on the driver's window switch to close the window completely, then hold the switch in that position for a second or two more. . If the power windows don't reset, then have your Honda dealer check them out. Bikerbc . (MORE)
The Haynes Repair Manual states, "Honda CVT fluid." I would imagine that there may be an equivelant commercially available product. Check with your local auto parts store.
It is a warning that the vehicle's computer senses something wrong with your transmission. Have it looked at immediately or it could cost you BIG bucks.
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. (MORE)

06 Honda crv - it shakes horribly when you accelerate. Tires checked and they are saying it could be the transmition - Could this be - It only has 26k miles - Help?
I'd have a decent mechanic check the engine mounts and transmission mounts. One or more of them might have failed which could cause the shaking you describe.
take out the old one buy a adapter for it cost like 10 bones at walmart it will hook up to what u all ready have then u can hook in a new one if thats what ur asking
Yes it's safe to drive but it will be very difficult to steer. Only drive it to a place to replace it or home if doing it yourself. They are relatively easy to replace. If you can do a brake job you can replace a pump. Just get yourself a Haynes manual.
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. battery in car replaced). There should be a security code in your owners manual. Enter the correct code, and the radio will wor…k. 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. (MORE)
Trouble code P0845 means: Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor/Switch B Circuit. You will need a mechanic to troubleshoot this problem.
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 front cover, or on the page that describes the radio operation, are favorite places). Also check the interior of the glove compa…rtment - 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. (MORE)
COMMENT: You are asking for probably more trouble and expense than it is worth to do it.

I'm not saying it can't be done - but it would hardly b…e worth the time, trouble, and expense. (MORE)
Yes, UNLESS the belt pulley is frozen and doesn't revolve (i.e.: freewheel) easily. If the compressor simply does not work properly, or is out of Freon the activation switch will not turn it on.

Unable to respond. Prices of vehicles, as with the prices of ALL goods and services, vary widely depending on what country you are asking about, and even between the areas within the country. Your best bet would probably be to try a car-buying site.
Honda CRV cars can be found in your local area Honda car dealers. To look for local dealers, simply just go to their website and type in your zip code. The website is very accurate and will tell you your best options of which one to go. Have fun car shopping!
One can purchase a new Honda CRV at any Honda Dealership. To find a dealership closest, go to Honda's site, and enter one's zip code. The closest dealerships will be listed. One can get a price quote also.
There are many places to purchase a 2005 Honda CRV. Your local Honda dealer may have used Hondas for sale. You could also check online auction sites such as Craigslist or eBay but if you use these sites be wary of answering ads that seem "fishy". One of the best ways to buy a used car is from a p…rivate seller that lives near you. Check the local newspaper for ads or keep your eyes open as you drive around town. Some of the best deals on used cars are from private owners. (MORE)
