THE FIX OF THE WEEK MAY 28TH, 2020

Every week, we review new fixes submitted by our Direct-Hit users and pick our favorite “Fix of The Week.” These are confirmed, experience-based fixes directly from technicians and shops. You can find this and over 3.5 million other confirmed fixes in Direct-Hit with a 14-day free trial. This week, our favorite fix is for a 2017 Honda CR-V EX whose battery was draining overnight and the alarm would activate intermittently.

The Vehicle:

2017 Honda CR-V EX 1.5 Liter 4 Cylinder

The Problem:

The battery drains down overnight, and the alarm activates intermittently if the car is locked.

Other Applicable Vehicles:

No additional vehicles reported

The Diagnosis:

The car has keyless entry with a push button ignition. The ignition seems to turn itself on and will not shut off when pressing the button. I also noticed a clicking noise under the dash. We used Identifix to look up any information and found a similar post on the same vehicle. I followed the steps the other shop performed, and it led to a faulty Body Control Module (BCM).

Direct Hit Fixes:

Posted fix on a 2017 CR-V

The Solution:

Replaced the BCM and had it programmed by the local dealer.
