13. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

Does the A/C condenser fan run on high? YES-Check for loose wires or poor connections at PCM connector A (44P) terminal No.5. If the connections are good, substitute a known-good PCM, and recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away, replace the original PCM.

NO-Repair open in the wire between the A/C condenser fan relay and the PCM.

14. Remove A/C diode B from the under-hood fuse/ relay box.

15. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

16. Measure the voltage between the A/C diode B 2P socket terminal No.2 and body ground.

Is there battery voltage? YES-Go to step 17.

NO-Replace the under-hood fuse/relay box.

17. Using the diode setting () on a DVOM, check for current flow in both directions between the A/C diode B terminals No.1 and No.2.

Honda CR-V. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Is there current flow in only one direction? YES-Replace the under-hood fuse/relay box.

NO-Replace A/C diode B.

A/C Compressor Clutch Circuit Troubleshooting

NOTE:

1. Check the No. 20 (7.5 A) fuse in the under-hood fuse/relay box, and the No. 36 (10 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box.

Are the fuses OK? YES-Go to step 2.

NO-Replace the fuses and recheck. If the fuses blow again, check for a short in the No. 20 (7.5 A) and No. 36 (10 A) fuses circuit.

2. Connect the HDS to the DLC.

3. Start the engine.

4. Turn on the A/C.

5. Check the A/C CLUTCH in the PGM-FI Data List with the HDS.

Is the A/C CLUTCH on? YES-Go to step 7.

NO-Go to step 6.

6. Using the HDS, confirm the following values in the PGM-FI Data List at idle.

Honda CR-V. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Are all the values within specifications? YES-Go to step 7.

NO-Troubleshoot the value that is not within the specifications.

7. Remove the A/C compressor clutch relay from the under-hood fuse/relay box, and test it.

Is the relay OK? YES-Go to step 8.

NO-Replace the A/C compressor clutch relay.

8. Measure the voltage between the A/C compressor clutch relay 4P socket terminal No. 1 and body ground.

Honda CR-V. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Is there battery voltage? YES-Go to step 9.

NO-Replace the under-hood fuse/relay box.

9. Connect the A/C compressor clutch relay 4P socket terminals No.1 and No.2 with a jumper wire.

Honda CR-V. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Does the A/C compressor clutch click? YES-Go to step 10.

NO-Go to step 19.

10. Disconnect the jumper wire.

11. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

12. Measure the voltage between the A/C compressor clutch relay 4P socket terminal No.3 and body ground.

Honda CR-V. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)

Is there battery voltage? YES-Go to step 13.

NO-Repair open in the wire between the No. 36 (10 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box and the A/C compressor clutch relay.

13. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

14. Reinstall the A/C compressor clutch relay.

15. Jump the SCS line with the HDS.

NOTE: This step must be done to protect the powertrain control module (PCM) from damage.

16. Disconnect PCM connector A (44P).
