When checking washer fluid, I noticed the fluid was not visible, so I added the proper fluid. As nothing happened, I looked under car, & the washer solution was running out on the concrete floor, as I poured it into jug. Upon further examination, I found pieces of the tubing that had been chewed on, and in some areas, chewed completely through. One of these areas I was able to access via a plastic door, about 12 inches wide, by about 2 inches in height, located under the hood, in the center of the firewall, just below the windshield wipers. I found pieces of tubing in this area, also. Looking further, I found insulation that mice had moved from an unknown area, to make their nest. With some difficulty, I finally received a call from a Honda rep, in California. After about 25 minutes of discussion, in a peaceful manner, I was not offered any solution to the mice problem, as I was trying to get Honda to help me determine where the point of entry was located at, in the car body, that would allow mice to gain entry. As a former auto mechanic, & a structure aircraft mechanic, I planned to make the repair myself. (the insulation movement could be affecting the A/C & heating systems, also). Later, I found both of the wires to the left clearance light had been chewed completely through, wire & all. I later read on a web site, that the wiring insulation was made out of recycled food material, such as the husks from corn, or pods from mature dried beans!! I consider the windshield washer problem a safety hazard, for sure. Other mfg of asian cars could be using food grade wiring. If the mice can't be stopped, they could totally destroy these newer type cars, looking for shelter, with a built-in food supply. This should be considered a fire hazard, also, in my opinion, due to causing a short-circuit in the wiring systems.

Vehicle began resetting door locks whenever vehicle accelerated through 7 or 8 mph from stop. After awhile, driver side front and back doors would not lock automatically and intermittently the driver door could not be manually locked (heavy resistance when trying to flip latch). On a less frequent basis, the passenger side rear door would not auto or manually lock. For last several months the door lock solenoids fire like a machine gun whenever the doors are manually or automatically locked. Some times they all lock, other times one or more of the doors won't. tolerated for many months as dealer wouldn't fix under warranty even though only 1000 miles and a few days past 12mo/36K coverage and didn't want to pay dealer estimated fix at up to 800 dollars. Now starting to pick up grandchildren for after school care and need to fix. Seems this problem has enough complaints to warrant recall?

The contact owns a 2007 Honda CR-V. the contact stated that she attempted to enter the vehicle but the doors would not unlock. The doors eventually unlocked after repeated attempts. The contact also stated that the vehicle would intermittently experience a failure in which it would not shift out of park unless allowed to rest for a long period of time. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop and the battery was replaced. The failures continued to occur. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance. The failure mileage was unknown. The VIN was unavailable.
