I expect that you have an oil leak that is dripping/running on to the exhaust. The burnt oil will smells a bit like rubber. Check for oil leaks that are higher up on the engine. (Valve Cover gasket for example).

Diodes are simply electrical current gates. Current passes through them in only one direction. If current is fed in the reverse direction, poof., there goes a diode. You are getting a feed back from a short with a hot wire or another componant. Chk the body to engine ground strap. usually at back of engine and screwed to the firewall. A diode is not a fuse. It is a one way gate for electrical flow.

First of all: Ground your car till you fixed this problem! A short can cause a fire and, believe me you can't stop it!
Next: check the complete wiring for the seat first, then remove the seat and check wiring and switch inside. After that, check the motor(s). If there is no problem with the seat and the wiring in and to the seat, remove the dash board (you need to remove it complete! This will take a day, if you don't do this every day). Use a wiring diagram and check the wiring for a short or broken wire. The electrical system is not as simple as it was in the later 80' . Cars with ODB systems uses wires not only for a special system, like power seat. The same wire can be uses to activate other systems so it is not easy to find the electrical cramlin right at the point you think it have to be! Searching for a short can cost you days or, in some cases weeks.

Hi there! Check out this link.
this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

could be turbo ,but the problem is its a common rail fuel injection system and this throws up another problem and that is its VW which from 2005 uses encrypted software so it is difficult to find the fault .change the fuel filter and see what happens if problem persists then its either a bosch diesel specialist or the dealer .sorry for no qiuck fix
