I agree with the above. Comments on forums are usually made when things go wrong. People rarely post up when things are going OK.In a forum that people who have a problem with their car will gravitate towards, you are going to hear about problems. Huge masses of Honda owners that have not had a single problem by and large will not be in this forum.
I am an exception and not part of a SILENT and satisfied majority as I joined HRVForum as an HRV enthusiast. Have 17k on a 2016 without a single problem or even an annoying noise.
Hi, did you resolved the problem?? i have that problem .I had the same problem. I bought my Honda HRV 2017 brand new in April 2018. I bought this car because I will have to start doing a long road trip at least 2x per month, and my brothers who are mechanics recommended Honda as they are supposed to be very reliable (Have always had Nissans...no problems wihatsoever; traded them in after 12 years each).
The first time I tried to make the trip (2 months+after I bought the car) the red "PARK" light starts flashing along with a "P" in a circle in yellow and the engine light symbol. I had to abort my trip (which I was trying to put together for months, and could not get going because all the folks involved had different schedules and very busy lives). Finally got it together and started out on our trip, was very disappointed as we had to turn back about 60 miles into the trip as the lights would not go off. I took it to the Honda dealership the following morning and they said it was the gas cap that was loose. I don't believe it as I filled up on Thursday and this happened on Sunday and I drove the car every day in between, but for short trips of maybe 30 miles max.
Honda said they ran tests and found nothing wrong with the car. I am very worried about trying to do this trip again. Any help will be appreciated. I guess they reset it because the lights went off.
i had an 2016 HRV and had the same problem. At first the Honda dealer reset my computer system and they also talk to Honda Manufacture experts (cost me extra $$$). Then after we replace the battery everything is fine. It's a strange problem.Hi, did you resolved the problem?? i have that problem .
Maybe I can shed some light from a dealer's perspective. I was a former dealer technician (not for Honda). The repair process is very bureaucratic now, and technicians are relegated to being flowchart readers and part swappers. They want us to follow the manufacturer's approved and published diagnostic procedure. I have a feeling it is largely for legal purposes. Reading a random Internet forum would be highly discouraged.Today I get a call saying we have found the problem it appears to be a wire that was either corroded or torn... yeah ok so who the hell would have torn it since the only people under the hood of my car is them! same dealer repairs my car as the one I purchased it from... Anyhow the mechanic that was assigned to me starts of by saying "good news we found the problem and you can have your car back today... bad news you will need to pay for the 3 hours of diagnostics!!!! REALLY!?
The OEM battery is barely adequate at best. That's one spot they try to keep the cost down. Mine lasted 75k miles, but I drove 50 miles at a time, almost all on the freeway. Once I started driving locally (2-3 miles at a time), the battery died a few months later.While it is possible the battery has gone "bad" due to the short drive nature of my deliveries... the battery in the Fit has always lasted 3 years with the same driving conditions (unless I let the car sit for a few weeks/months). I've only had the HR-V for 9 months.
I broke that habit, put the HR-V in park, let it roll slightly before activating the EPB. But, unless there's some sort of tension somewhere, it doesn't really make sense to me for this to trigger the issue.
faulty switch, it wasn't providing the correct resistance.
So you didn't take it to the dealer because the lights turned off? I suggest recording it on your phone and showing it to a service tech at the dealer.I own a 2018 Honda HRV (Ex) with less then 19K milage on it and I am having issues with "Electric Braking System".
The “Electronic Braking System” light came on along with “Break” red light flashing on 24th Dec. On 25th the car sat on the driveway. Then on 26th I turned on the car to take it to the Honda Dealer in Burlington, and the brake lights were gone. They again came back on the 27th while driving. I pulled over and turned off the car and turned it back on. The lights went away, but they again came back on after 10-15ish minutes.
The electric braking system kicks in at inappropriate times. Hence resulting in my HRV to slow down (braking) on the highway all of a sudden. Then dropping down to around 10mph the car starts picking up speed, and the feeling of the car braking goes away.
I haven't even owned this car for 6 months and I am having electrical breaking issues.
