Question about Honda CR-V

1 Answer

My 2006 honda crv parking lights will not turn off. i was cleaning the car and when i started it up to move it the parking lights came on and cant get them to shut off. I pulled the fuse not to drain the battery. Is the problem in the switch or the relay? could it be that when I sprayed cleaner on the dash and steering column that something got wet and shorted?

I'm currently working on a similar problem with an 02 Accord SE. Honda replaced a whole bunch of relays with multiplex control units(small computers) so it's not as simple as testing individual relays and pulling fuses anymore. Since the wire schematics don't illustrate exactly how they work, it has been very difficult to pinpoint the problem. Unfortunately, your best bet is probably the dealership or find a shop that specializes in auto electric. However, if you are up for it, you might be better off purchasing the MCU's and just try replacing them yourself and save the labor on having the dealer do it. At least for the Accord they are about $50 each, which is what you will pay for 30 minutes of diagnosis work at the dealer. Good luck.

    As a follow up to this problem, I discovered a bad diode on the circuit board for the mutilplex control unit that controls the turn signals/parking lights. I replaced the diode which was less than $1 and the module was fixed.

My crv 04 when i start the car the transmission would not release from park position, i need to use the release to move my tranny to neutral so i can use the car.-

There is a solenoid that releases the shifter under the console. If your brake lights work, it should be getting power because it uses the same switch. It sounds like your park interlock solenoid is bad and has to be replace. Some people just defeat it with a zip tie as the solenoids can be expensive.

start your cr-v and let idle for 10 or so seconds in park. shut it off and check the fluid with in 30 seconds. if you check the fluid running it will read low and get overfilled. level ground is also important.

2006 Honda Element EXP - 40K miles

I have a 2006 Honda Element as well, and mine started making "rubbing" noises when I made a slow hard turn left or right. It had 49K on it. Took it to a dealership and had it looked at. The technician knew what it was right off the bat. The rear differential needed to be serviced. Said the fluid had broken down and needed replacing. $79.00 to fix. CRV have the same problem. Just get it serviced and it should be ok.
