Honda CR-V: Sound Quality Diagnosis

Special Tools Required

Diagnostics CD 07AAZ-SDBA100

Use the following tests to check sound quality.

NOTE: Before beginning the following tests, write down the customer's bass, treble, fader and balance settings, and then set them to their center positions for testing.

Left/Right Channel 10

Do this test to confirm proper channel routing.

1. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07 AAZ-SDBA 100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

2. Play track No.1 (left, both, right channel ID) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

3. The voice should be audible only from the channel or channels when indicated.

Phase Test

Do this test to confirm proper speaker phasing.

1. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07 AAZSDBA 100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

2. Play track No.2 (phase) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

3. The voice should sound centered and focused when it is in-phase.

4. The voice should sound diffused, and have "less bass" when it is out of phase.

Electrical Noise Test

Do this test to check for electrical noise being induced into the audio system.

NOTE: Electrical noise may be caused by outside sources that cannot be prevented by the audio system.

Make sure you remove any cell phones and/or turn off any aftermarket device before beginning this test.

1. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07 AAZ-SDBA100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

2. Play track No.4 (digital zero) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

3. Operate any electrical device that may create electrical noise in the audio system, including starting the engine.

4. Play track No.5 (near digital zero) at a normal', or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

5. Operate any electrical device that may create electrical noise in the audio system, including starting the engine.

6. Play track No.6 (SNR) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

7. Operate any electrical device that may create electrical noise in the audio system, including starting the engine.

Individual Speaker Test

Do this test to identify a faulty speaker.

1. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07AAZ-SDBA 100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

2. Play track No. 30 (steady 300 Hz tone) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

3. Listen to each speaker for poor sound compared to the other speakers. Use the audio unit's fader and balance settings to help isolate the channel with the problem.

Sound Balance Test

Perform this test to identify a faulty channel or speaker.

1. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07 AAZS-DBA100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

2. Confirm the bass and treble are set to the center positions.

3. Play track No.3 (pink noise) at a normal, or slightly higher then normal, volume level.

4. A "static" type sound should be heard through all speakers.

5. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07 AAZ-SDBA100) into the navigation unit or audio unit of a known-good vehicle.

6. Set the bass and treble to the center position.

7. Play track No.3 (pink noise) all the same level as was played in step 3.

8. Compare the sounds made by the two vehicles.

Frequency sweep

Do this test to find rattles or reverberation that may cause a perception of poor sound quality.

1. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07AAZ-SDBA100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

2. Play track No. 13 (sweep from 500 Hz to 35 Hz) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level.

3. Listen to each speaker for poor sound quality or reverberations caused by specific frequencies. Use the voice-over to estimate the frequency that causes the vibration. Use the audio unit's fader and balance settings to help isolate the channel with the problem.

4. Choose the appropriate track from No. 14 to 25 (small range frequency sweep) or 26 to 53 (single frequencies) to recreate the frequency that caused the poor sound quality or vibration located in step 3; this helps diagnose the cause.

NOTE: When you get to the track that recreates the problem, select the repeat function on the navigation unit or audio unit; this helps you isolate the cause.

5. Replace or insulate the source of the vibrations or, if the speaker is the source of the poor sound quality, replace it.

Sound judging

1. In the customer's vehicle, set the bass, treble, fader, and balance settings to the customer's normal settings that were written down before beginning testing.

2. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N:07AAZ-SDBA100) into the navigation unit or audio unit.

3. Play tracks No.7 to 12 (sound quality, midland, dynamics, and imaging demonstration tracks) at a normal, or slightly higher than normal, volume level. Write down the volume setting being used.

4. Listen to areas of the track that stand out as being either very clear, or poorer than other areas of the track.

5. Insert the audio diagnostic CD (T/N: 07 AAZ-SDBA100) into the navigation unit or audio unit of a known-good vehicle.

6. Play the tracks at the same volume level and the same bass, treble, balance, and fader settings as used in step 3 in the customer's vehicle.

7. Listen to the same area of the track that stood out as being either very clear or poorer than other areas of the track.

8. Compare the customer's vehicle's sound quality results to the known-good vehicle's results.

Seek Stop Test

Do this test to check the performance of the audio unit's AM and FM reception. Refer to symptom troubleshooting: audio sound weak or distorted, or no sound is heard from speakers (display is normal) (see page 23-41) before continuing with this test.

NOTE:

1. Park the customer's vehicle in an open area away from buildings, high power lines, or other obstructions.

2. Park a known-good vehicle (same year, model, and trim level) next to the customer's vehicle, facing the same direction.

3. Start the engine in the customer's vehicle, and turn on the radio.

4. Set the FM receiver to 87.7 MHz.

5. Press the "Seek +" button and record the first station that the navigation unit or audio unit locks onto.

6. Press the "Seek +" button repeatedly, and write down each station that the navigation unit or audio unit locks onto until the station recorded in step 5 is reached again.

7. Set the AM receiver to 530 kHz.

8. Press the "Seek +" button, and record the first station that the navigation unit or audio unit locks onto.

9. Press the "Seek +" button repeatedly, and write down each station that the navigation unit or audio unit locks onto until the station recorded in step 8 is reached again.

10. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).

11. Start the engine in the known-good vehicle, and then perform steps 4 thru 10 on the known-good vehicle.

12. Compare the number of stations received in steps 6 and 9 in the customer's vehicle with the number of stations received in the known-good vehicle.
