Honda CR-V Transmission Questions

  • My Honda is flashing its green light on the d shift lever occasionally. I pull over and stop the motor and restart and it goes away, for a while, then comes back later on. Has anyone had this experience with their car, or know what the problem is or the remedy is. I would greatly appreciate some help here, thanks

    Read The Fine Manual = RTFM. Flashing "D" light indicates something that is mentioned in the Owners Manual.

    Owner's Manuals are usually the best starting place when looking for information.

    P.S. You will need code scanner to determine what the actual problem is.
  • At least once a day, the lever sticks in Park. Only after jiggelyng a few times it disengages. Foot always on brake pedal, tried turning ignition off and restart w/o success. Any ideas before I take it to dealer? Thank you

    Did you try to pull the lever toward you before shift down from D to 2?
    Below is the cut/paste of 2001 CRV manual ...

    Replace the fuid using Honda ATF fluid only. Drive a little bit, replace again. Drive a little bit, and replace again.

    When you replace fluid once it only replaces about 30% of the total fluid in the transmission.

    My 98 crv needed a transmission repair. The car drove great but the 2nd gear was slipping. After the rebuilt transmission (a Precision product, I believe when I was verbally promised Honda parts), the car shifts late with an increase in engine rpm. It is not much but very noticable and makes the job unacceptable. My mechanic, who said everything was good before the work was done including the engine, tried to tell me that the engine had an issue now and that ALL Hondas shift late. How can we resolve this in the best interest of all parties concerned? Please help me fix this.
  • I just got the same problem with my 2003 CR-V yesterday. The dealer wants me to bring in the car to fix the Transmission Solenoid with an estimated cost of around $450.00 + tax. Where can I go to get code scanner to determine what the actual problem is without walk blindly into the dealer shop?

    2000 CR-v Initially it started intermittently. I would put in my car keys and realize that there was no electricity running through my car. The electric locks would not work, either with the key control or door switch, the ignition switch would not turn on, no lights, nothing. Then within minutes I would try again and everything was back on working perfectly. However, this last time it hasn't turned back on. I had taken it to the dealer and they could not figure out what the problem was. :cry:

    Try draining the rear differential fluid and replacing it 3 times with driving in tight circles for 5 minutes to work the fluid in.

    Make sure you use Honda DPF or DPFII only!!!!!

    Wasn't there an ignition switch recall? Check if it was preformed, by registering with Honda Owner's link foud on www.honda.com. You will need to have you VIN handy.

    The transmission in my 99 CRV with 140K+ seems to be in need of a rebuild. We can drive it by starting off from stop on 1st gear, then manually shift to 2nd or drive at that point, but it will not down shift . Also does slip out of gear completely if you leave in 1st gear too long. Fluid has been replaced and has signs of transmission damage (metal flakes and gunk). Someone told us that rebuilds are not a good idea on the CRVs and we would need a manufacturer's rebuild. Has anyone done a rebuild on theirs ?
  • blueiedgodblueiedgod Posts: 2,803
    Are you talking auto or manual?

    You can't downshift into 1st when the vehicle is moving. The 1st gear in the manual CR-V is very low. You can only shift into 1st when standing still.

    What kind of fluid did you use to replace with?
