You need lots of resolve:

You need to REMOVE the side panel of the cargo area. Remove the lip of the cargo area that sits under the door. Then, unscrew the grommet nut as this will catch on the side panel. Pry the lighter socket out and seperate the connection. Then, gently start pulling the side panel free (left side) from floor to window to back door.

This will expose the whole left side of the cargo are (about 6 square feet in total). Voila. Closest to the cargo door, down low, taped to the existing wiring is the plug connector for the trailer. down on the floor is a plug for the hole that you need to pull out. When you put your wiring through, connect the connector and replace all parts. As you go through the process pay special attention to the parts, there are a few places you need to remove clips that hold parts of the panel in place. Patience is key.

I'm pretty sure Honda wouldn't be happy about owners doing this under warranty...took us 1/2 hour but we are pretty handy and not afraid of the warranty...if I had to do work like this by paying somebody just to maintain the warranty, I'd be broke by now...

I'm wondering if you figured this out yet, given that your post was some time ago??

Trailer light issues

Hi Donald,
It sounds like a wiring issue. Double the wiring to your connector on the vehicle. Also check the wiring on the trailer connector. I have seen many trailer that are wired to ground through the ******, this of course will cause an intermittent ground and flickering lights. you only need four (4) wires... One for a ground, One for running lights, and Two wires for brake and turn - one wire for the left and one wire for the right. You can also find the proper pin wiring for vehicle and trailer on the internet. Cheers. I hope this helps. John

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv

I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.

Have you checked the fuse for the tail lights which should be located on the side of the dash behind an access panel on either the drivers side or passengers side. If you open the door you should see the panel.

Have a 2005 petrol Honda CRV and the "lights on" warning buzzer has ceased to function. The handbook does not indicate which fuse might have blown. Any help on finding it would be appreciated.

Not a honda lover but its probably easier if you brought that to a shop or check under the dash board drivers side. I dont think its a fuse or relay but a little bell. Now u describe it as a "petrol" Crv if its right hand drive I would presume its located near the fuse box near the foot panels of either the drivers or maybe the passenger side. Its should have a plug attached to it. If this doesnt help buy a repair manual located at the dealer of a local parts store.

I have a 2003 GMC 2500 HD. The left directional and left brake lights don't work on the trailer plug. The plug itself is not the problem and all lights on the truck work. HELP

Strange as it might seem, I had a similar problem with my 2003 Sierra 2500HD. All lights on the truck worked fine, and all lights on the trailer worked fine with the exception of the right brake light. I chased all the obvious possible reasons, (blown fuse, shorted wiring, etc). It turned out to be a sticky relay in the flasher unit in the dash. It is located behind the fuse panel on the left side of the dash, and is accessed through a hole behind the lower panel under the steering column. I removed the fuse panel cover and the lower plastic panel under the steering wheel and was able to remove the flasher unit. I ordered a new one but before I installed, it I checked the old one. The plastic cover comes off easily. There are two small relays for the trailer lights and the one for the right side was stuck in the off position. I freed it up, using a toothpick, gave it a spray of conatact cleaner and re-installed it. It is working fine now. I kept the new flasher unit as a spare in case the problem arises again.

Your problem may not be the same as mine, but at least you will know where the $100.00 flasher is located!

Hope this helps,

If you release the holders on the sides of the glovebox (when it is open) the glovebox will hang down, and you will see a removable black panel behind the glovebox...remove that panel, and the cabin filter will be behind it.
