If the car sits for 24 + hours the battery dies, I have had this happen 6 times now. Called dealer 3+ times, brought it in they first said it was the battery (which we all knew it was not) but they put in a new one they said. Anyhow as you already know this is an electrical issue that needs to be fixed a.S.a.P.. dealer now tells me Honda is working on a fix but in the mean time I have had to have the car jumped and paid for this as well it's a major nuisance I want fixed very soon or want my money back and I will buy another car. This has been goin on since I bought this car Dec. 28th 2018

Vehicle battery was dead after the SUV sat unused for 2 days within 3 weeks and 300 miles of ownership. This has occurred over 6 times in 3000 miles. Battery has been replaced by the battery twice and is now on its third battery. Dealer notes this problem exists on all 2019 CRV's delivered to-date and that they do not yet have a solution.

If the car sits for 2-3 days without running the battery drains and dies completely. We have been told that it is related to an evac test that is performed 5 hours after the car is shut off. Apparently Honda is aware and is working on a software upgrade.

Continual battery failures, batteries go dead if not driven every day. On my second battery and died as two days not being driven. Some sort of parasitic drain?

CR-V

Left car parked for 5 days. Nothing left on but battery was drained. Needed to call a tow truck for a jump start. When vehicle came back on, alarm sounded and all safety systems were off-line. Slowly they came back online again. Only 1,600 miles on it. Also, lock and unlock not consistently working on vehicle. Also noted radar for front and back collision does not work in snow and rain (see picture).

CR-V

  • 154 miles
The battery is repeatedly dead after a day or so if not driven. The dealer says a draw of 0.500 amp was found from the evaporation detection module and there needs to be a software update to fix it. They cannot give me any timeline for this update other than to say "they are working on it". in the meantime, anytime I do not drive the car for a day or two, I need to get a "jump" to get it started.

Purchased 2019 Honda CR-V on February 9, 2019. Drove only twice in the first 2 weeks. Attempted to drive for the 3rd time (101 miles on odometer) on the 2 week anniversary of buying, February 23, 2019 and the car was completely dead! Honda sent tow truck, driver charged battery. Took into Honda today for inspection, they checked the battery and only the battery and said it was fine, nothing more they could do. I would have liked them to check and see what drained the battery. The car sat from Tuesday to Saturday, I would expect it to start without an issue. Spoke to sales associate who said that new cars tend to drain the battery if the windshield wipers are left in the on position. I don't know why that would even be a possibility but if that is a fact it should be corrected.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

On Saturday, February 16, 2019 while driving on a clear afternoon, we went onto the entry ramp for the highway to rt 95 S. the ramp was not straight and had curves. When an attempt was made to apply the brakes to slow for the first curve, they did not respond as they should, they pulsed and locked. At the same time, the digital dash began displaying multiple warnings of systems not functioning including brake, emergency brake, transmission, power steering, tire pressure, lane assist, cruise control, hill assist, , etc. With difficulty we were able to pull onto the grass shoulder of the highway, there was not a breakdown lane in view. We tried shutting the car off and restarting, and the warnings persisted. I contacted Honda assistance and they sent a tow truck. The tow driver stated he had difficulty loading the car because of the brakes being locked. At the Honda dealership, they also could not release the brakes to off load the car.
