#1793 of 2218 2004 honda cr-v A/C problems
Sep 19, 2010 (5:19 pm)
Just wanted to post my disappointment and dismay with Honda CR-V. I just replaced my A/C system for the 4th time, (luckly the the 2nd and 3rd times were free due to still being under warranty from the 1st time) each time the quotes from independent shops and honda dealers have ran from $3000-$4000. This isn't cheap. And i'm tired of having to replace the a/c system. We live in the desert and this is a needed system. I'm ready to trade in or sell this massive waste of money.
Disappointed with Honda.
#1794 of 2218 2007 A/C Whistling
Oct 08, 2010 (3:08 pm)
Hi all, been trying to read through the posts here. Have a 2007 CR-V with 22k miles on it. The car has been making a loud obnoxious whistling noise nearly every time the AC is on. It doesn't happen constantly or every time, but it does. I have taken it twice to a dealer and they can't find anything wrong with it. I am now 8 days out of warranty and I am hearing from a mechanic friend it's probably the compressor and/or extension valve. I can't afford to fix this problem outside of warranty. Is this normal under the 3rd gen CR-V? Who is everyone filing complaints with?

My 07 whistled and of course Honda claimed they were unable to find any problem. My AC went out at 48K and I just had it repaired at an independent shop. In your case, I would be taking it in to Honda again and really play up the the severity of the symptoms. Have as much prove as possible that the condition existed during your warranty period and shortly afterwards.
Remind the dealer that you have had AC problems during your warranty and that THEY were not able to find or repair them. Now the symptoms are getting worse. Ask them straight up if they are going to cover an AC repair since the AC has been reported twice under warranty. If the AC whistle has been accompanied by any other strange noise, be sure to mention that.. When your AC fails, you will be able to show that the problem started during your warranty period and progressively worsened before the failure.
#1796 of 2218 Problem with A/C and Heater blower
Nov 01, 2010 (7:02 am)
The blower on my A/C and heater until isn't working. I will turn it on and nothing will come out, or it'll work for a few minutes then just stop. Does anyone know if this is expensive to fix? I've never had that happen to me before. I own a 2005 CR-V.

Sounds like it might be a resistor in the heater switch. Have you tried any higher speed? Usually the slower the speed, the quicker these resistors blow out.
Not expensive I don't think if that is the problem.

I had my blower stop working about a year ago on my 2002. The shop said it could be the blower motor or a smaller part (transistor maybe). They said they wouldn't know until they got in there. Well, it was the smaller part and it was not expensive to fix. I know it was well under $100.

Yeah I tried everything. I hope you're right and it's not expensive! Thanks so much!

That's great to hear! I hope mine is that inexpensive also. I know that once I drive on the highway I can feel some air, so it just seems like it wants to work but something is blocked or losing power. I appreciate your feedback!
#1801 of 2218 Any Updates on Class Action Lawsuit?

Does anyone know the status of a class action lawsuit against Honda re: the 2004 CRV A/C compressor problems?
