    Hello
    My name is Panos and I am from Cyprus. I have a Honda CR-V 2013 petrol model (SHSRExxxxDU-013XXX). I have found this site after being stuck in the sand and having an AWD failure as the rear wheels never rotated even though they had good grip, as the car failed to send torque to the back wheel while in sand. Thank you for all information found here. The Servive bulletins mentioned here have helped me to fix my AWD problem.

    Thanks for sharing all these information with us.

    Welcome Panos. :welcome:
    I am pleased you have been able to fix your AWD.
    It would be good to see your CR-V. Maybe you can add some pictures in the Club Garage.

    Thanks for your welcoming. The fix was a software/firmware AWD update. I have tried again (4 times) in the same spot (beach sand) and the CR-V passed the AWD test.

    Excellent news. Our CR-V owners will be pleased to know the software fix works.

    Thank you. Glad to have found the information here. The Honda Dealer in Cyprus did not find the problem (could not replicate it) and next day I told them about the TSB. Few minutes later they called me and asked me to take the car back for an update (AWD).

    Welcome to the club Panos, glad to hear your problems were sorted :Smile:

    You'll find dealers are very coy about admitting to TSBs being issued, some don't even seem to keep up-to-date with them and until a member prompts them, they're completely unaware it's out there. In this case though, I'd bet on the former :Smile:

    Cheers. Actually in Cyprus there are no Honda dealers. Sorry for the term used. It is Honda Service which is found per main town. The person in charge was unaware at that point in time of the TSBs but he was very friendly and took care of my problems immediately after he was pointed to the correct direction. He read them and immediately called me for a firmware update.

    Ah, I was unaware of that - are they licensed by Honda then or how does it work? They must have access to the Honda extranet to get the firmware updates.

    There is just one dealer in Cyprus :Smile:
    - - - Updated - - -
    The only dealer in Cyprus has these Service points in every main town. I have spoke to the Honda service dealer in Nicosia. Yes they have the latest firmwares.

    Glad that this was sorted :Smile: Sorry for confusing you. My CR-V is RHD as UK (we used to be a British Colony that is why we are RHD) and is made by UK Swindon.

    Because of the British Bases and the sunny 5 star beaches we have a lot of British tourists visting Cyprus.
