  • 60 miles


The contact owns a 2014 Honda CR-V. upon turning the key in the ignition switch, the instrument panel gauges and all the warning lights flickered. The contact stated that the key hesitated to start the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the ignition wiring harness connector frayed causing a loss of connection to the computer or instrument cluster. The technician stated that further diagnostic testing was required in order to determine the failure. The vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 11V004000 (electrical system). The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 60.

My CRV started making grinding noises with ignition in Sept 2014, approx. 6 months after I purchased it from kings Honda in cincinnati, oh. During routine service at kings Honda I inquired about the grinding and was told that " it was the vtc actuator in the crvs and this was a known problem to Honda." The service manager told me that Honda was issuing a recall for the problem soon. I haven't seen a recall yet and I want this problem fixed while my car is still under warranty. Please advise on what further action I need to take. Thank you

First thing in the morning on cold days, sometimes a grinding sound occurs when starting the engine that lasts about a second. It doesn't happen every cold morning, but it happens fairly regularly on cold mornings. I see that many people have complained about this problem and Honda has not developed a solution. This problem needs to be fixed to ensure no damage is occurring to the engine.

The contact owns a 2014 Honda CR-V. when the vehicle was started, there was an abnormal noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. In addition, the contact stated that the vehicle failed to accelerate over 20 mph and all the warning lights on the instrument panel illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The technician stated that rodents were chewing the harness wires. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer on February 4, 2014 where it was diagnosed that the crank sensor and harness wires needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired and the manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 3,000.

During cold winter months there is a grinding noise for about 2 seconds when first starting the vehicle, even in garage. Taking to Honda dealer this week. Looking at all similar complaints online, I am not expecting much to be done. Seems Honda is aware of this problem on crvs but can't diagnose"?????"!!!!

I started my car with the remote start and a little over ten minutes later went out to clean off my car and I didn't want my car to turn off when the remote start timed out so I put my key in the ignition and turned it so the car would stay turned on while I cleaned off my car. As I was cleaning off my car I heard the doors lock with the keys in the ignition.

The TPMS warning light has been coming on since not long after the car was purchased new. We are told by the dealer that the latest software upgrade has been installed. Annoying, useless light. Constantly re-setting.

The tpwl comes on at various times & is not a reliable way to monitor tire pressure. Every time the light comes on, I check the pressures & they are all at 32 psi. The light is useless! this has happened multiple times & now I ignore the light.

The tpm went on indicating low tire pressure. Dealer check: All tires ok, reset tpm. This has happened many times since, it's back on as this data is being entered. A search on-line indicates that many 2014 owners have the same problem (one web site: ). this is a safety issue because owners can't trust the tpm system: Is a tire going flat, or is the tpm malfunctioning żagain. This is only for 2014 (and newer?) years when Honda went to a new system that monitors the rotational speed of wheels rather than actual tire pressure. Thanks

Traveling on trip to California from Arizona and the tire pressure system monitoring light came on. We pulled off as soon as feasible possible and checked pressure which was correct. Happened to me twice since then and both times the pressure in all tires was correct. Looks like a lot of other people have this problem as well.

Leaving for 4 hour vacation drive; as we were about 60 miles from home the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) low-tire light illuminated. We proceeded to pull off at a safe spot, examine the tires, check the tire pressure and found nothing wrong. The vacation ended there as we turned around and came home because we can no longer trust this vehicle. The TPMS light has been coming on since day one! originally I suspected the pre-delivery tire check and calibration was missed so I performed it myself. The light came on again and I took it to Honda who found no problems and acknowledged the condition stating we are working on a re-programming of the computer 12/2013. The light continued to illuminate until I couldn't take it any more and called Honda usa again who magically said we have a fix. Back to dealer who installed a vsa modulator control unit software update for different driving conditions 6/2014. Light illuminated again 8/19/2014 as stated above. Called Honda usa, took to dealer today for vsa repair kit fit usa 13-040. This seems fishy as it is a repair kit for a Honda fit not specifically for a CRV. Time will tell but we can not trust this vehicle as I am handicapped!

Rapid and uncontrolled deceleration of the vehicle in an unsafe manner while driving.we were almost hit by the following car.we lost of all instrumentation, all of the warnings lights indicate failure, speedometer, tachometer, airbags, vsa, brakes, ABS, etc.. the car has been repaired 4 times. #1(4/4/14) replaced vsa module and bleed brakes+ reset codes, #2 (4/8/14) replace 2 wiring harnesses and verify connections+ reset codes, #3(5/8/14) measure all can buss voltages & drive with meter+ reset codes, #4(6/10/14)dealer thinks they have found a loose ground & replaced ECM/PCM module+reset codes, drove a couple hundred miles then returned. The loose pin may have been from replacing the harness and removing connectors multiple occasions. Vehicle has been in for 30 days of service combined. In 1857 miles the vehicle has failed 4 times. You have no speed indication while driving during and after the event. Feels like the brakes come on or car is forced into low gear throwing passengers forward and causing following cars to evade the car. There are many error codes during these events. After shutting the car off and restarting car multiple times all indicators will return to normal except for the check engine light. We have pictures and video of three of the events.

Tire pressure monitor systemp (TPMS) light come on every few miles. We had reseted it 50 time by now. All speed & temperatures. Dealers serviced this problem 3 times so far. Checked everything out ok. Customer forum mentioned a vehicle stability control firmware "vsa/ABS software update" & "sb#14-006 update". dealer applied firmware update May 8. but TPMS lights still came on. Problem not fixed by the firmware update.

Tire pressure monitoring system has not worked properly since before I took the vehicle off the lot. Despite multiple checks, the light does not seem to stay off and has no relationship to the actual pressure of the tires. The tire pressure itself seems fine. I had the dealer conduct a software upgrade on 3/30/14 and the light has been on three times since. The dealer is suspecting that cell phone interference it a possible culprit.

TPMS light is on again for about the 5th or 6th time since I purchased the vehicle 3 weeks ago. Have attempted to reset per the vehicles manual, put car in park, turn on, push the TPMS button, will flash twice and then drive for 30 minutes at a speed of between 30 and 60 mph. I did this and apparently the vehicle still did not calibrate. New car, totally frustrated especially to see that there are so many complaints regarding this issue. I will take to dealer again tomorrow morning.

Have owned my Honda CRV 2014 for 2 months and the low tire pressure warning light has come on 3 times. Dealer does not admit a problem with the car but does not permanently correct the problem either. Has Honda acknowledged a problem here? I see many other owners have the same problem. Some body make Honda fix the problem!!!!

My Honda CRV was broken into while on vacation in Florida. I was only about 300 feet away from the car but was not notified by the alarm. I came back to see glass all over the floor, my personal belongings gone from the car. As a previous owner of a newly purchased Honda Odyssey, I felt that the car had alarm as the key has remote lock and and unlock functions and the car even sounded a familiar arming sound when remotely locked. When I went into a dealer in Florida to inquire why the alarm did not work, they told me that the car had passive alarm, which means that the alarm should sound if the glass is broken. Upon returning to New York, I went to the dealer where I purchased the car and they told me the car has no alarm, and that the familiar sound is just to indicate to me that all four doors are locked! at no time during the sales transaction was I told that the car has no alarm or that I needed to purchase an alarm.
