Customer Question
When I turn on...

When I turn on the headlights the screen darkens. Just started this soon after replacing the battery.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

It doesn't go completely off, it just fades. Works fine as long as headlights are not on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2013 CRV

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to fix it myself. I have been trying to find a "settings" adjustment, thinking that when the battery was replaced all settings may have been affected. But I haven't found a "settings" adjustment for this as yet.

It is the display screen that shows rear view camera when backing up; it shows other data when going forward. when you turn on the headlights this display screen fades almost off.

It wasn't doing this until recently. The battery went out and I had a new one put in and shortly thereafter (a few days) it started.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
