Remote is factory installed. Message does not show door ajar and dome lights go of normally

  1. Typically when your remote start shows a lift gate, hood, or door ajar open and you have verified there are no open doors. the message center would also display a door ajar warning. As the two system use the same input switches. being that your cars instrument cluster. shows no door ajar messages or warnings. I would suspect a deeper concern at hand.
  2. Your Tire monitoring system (low tire light) will automatically re set itself after being driver at a speed of greater than 30mph for 2-5mins of driving as long as all the air pressures are set to the correct tire pressure I believe a crv is 32psi. (check the sticker on the door to be sure). I would also recommend that you air them up to a couple pounds higher try 35. as your gauge could be off slightly.
  3. do you have the ability to pull codes?
  4. If you do not I would recommend a basic re system re set at this point disconnect the vehicles battery negative cable wait ten mins go in the car and cycle the ignition w/it off to make sure power is depleted. do this for the remote start fob as well. Reconnect/install both the batteries and re test the systems. also verify that the rear hatch is shut if not already done so.
  5. Feel free to message me back w/any further questions and if any of this has helped please help me by rating my services. Thank you.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
