Question about 2009 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Dealer told me you can't just test the block heater cord (2004 CRV) to see if that is the problem and wants to charge me $130 to check and or replace both the heater and the cord? Is this true?

No. If you can get to it you can test it. If the cord can be disconnected. you can check it with an ohm meter. The heater can be check the same way. If you get continuity it is still working. All you have to do is set the meter on ohms (lowest setting) take the leads and touch them to the cord first.Leaving it plugged into the heater. If you get continuity then the unit is till working. if not then test them separate and see which is bad. If they both test good then check the ends of the cord for corrosion. clean and reinstall, check again they should work

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy 2WD 6 cylinder 4.2 liter engine The car has 150,000 miles and we were told that rear heater leaks and it will cost for the replacement part $1,240.00. Is there a way to repair...

if you are handy you may be able to take out the rear heater core and take it to a radiator shop to test and repair the leak,,,other than that you can probably find a used one for alot less ,last you can do what the dealer suggested,just block off the lines going to the rear heater and just use the front heat...good luck with the repair!

Check engine came on took to garage for diagnotic check

Why not have 1 more scan done by a Chrysler/Jeep dealer. Sounds to me like the garage is lost on this one. Get a quote on diagnosis scan, doesn't mean you have to commit to repairs right away. I've seen more than one mechanic who had a scan tool, but didn't know what to do next when it comes to diagnosis.

2006 Equinox codes kicking out when heater is plugged in in winter

My 05 Malibu has same issue. There is a temp switch in the plug on the block heater cord (raised round plastic protrusion) to prevent the heater working until -18c. I had inadvertently disabled this by replacing the plug on the block heater cord due to no continuity when I tested it (tested it on a warm day before I knew about the switch). However was advised that if I plug in the vehicle on a cold day when the vehicle is hot (example; just arrived at work and it's -20c and want to plug it in for the day) the same fault will occur. Solution. Only plug in after the vehicle has cooled and only when the OAT is below -20c. Not much of a solution, more a of a work around but there it is.
