Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #2

Something popped and smelled and then the power windows switch on the driver size is not working. Even the manual lock is not working too. Right now I have to lock and unlock from the passenger side. I think this should be in the recall for electrical problem. I saw one post on this issues as well for this Japan made model too. We need to contact all the 2004 Japan made CRV to see if this is widespread.

Update from Nov 10, 2014: I have the same problem as the blog #17 from Garden Grove California. Please help each other and let Honda knows about this and have them fix the defective power switch for the Windows and door.

I'm just reporting the faulty door lock that doesn't work with the remote. Had new battery and remote replaced, but that's not the problem and using the key is getting annoying. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired nor was the manufacturer notified of the defect problem and the mileage at the time of failure was 109,594
