Honda CR-V: Outside Temperature Indicator

If equipped

If equipped

This indicator displays the outside temperature in Fahrenheit (U.S.

models) or Celsius (Canadian models).

The temperature sensor is in the front bumper. Therefore, the temperature reading can be affected by heat reflection from the road surface, engine heat, and the exhaust from surrounding traffic.

This can cause an incorrect temperature reading when your speed is under 19 mph (30 km/h).

The sensor delays the display update until it reaches the correct outside temperature. This may take several minutes.

If the outside temperature is incorrectly displayed, you can adjust it up to +/-5°F in U.S. models (+/- 3°C in Canadian models) warmer or cooler.

NOTE: The temperature must be stabilized before doing this procedure.

To adjust the outside temperature

To adjust the outside temperature display, press and hold the select/ reset knob for 10 seconds. The display changes as shown above.

Select the outside temperature indicator by turning the select/reset knob. The display begins to blink.

Push the same knob to enter this setting, then turn it to adjust the temperature. The following sequence will appear for each: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0 (U.S.) or 0, 1, 2, 3, -3, -2, -1, 0 (Canada).

When it reaches the desired value, push the select/reset knob to enter the setting. You should see the new outside temperature displayed.

In certain weather conditions, temperature readings near freezing (32°F, 0°C) could mean that ice is forming on the road surface.
