Climate works for a while then stops and blows warm air, even hot air occasionally. Then may work again next time I start off for a few minutes or an hour or so. regassed still the same. no diagnostic codes. Recharged A/C blows cold then hot after a few minutes. Condensor radiator blocked with dirt and sand. Can't exchange sufficient heat, so freon overheats and pressure switch cuts off compressor. Pressure washed condensor and radiator. Now OK!

The sensor in the truck was not detecting that the hatch door was closed, so it my lights were always showing that the trunk was open. As a result, my key fob would not lock the doors (because it won't lock if it senses a door is open). For whatever reason, shutting the door was not depressing the plastic arm enough. I "repaired" this by gluing a plastic furniture pad (the kind you would put under the legs of a chair or table to protect the floor) to the arm so that closing the trunk door would depress it enough to turn off the sensor. So far so good!

Having never used oil between oil services suddenly the CRV needed 800ml of oil after 5000km since the previous oil change. The shop looked for leaks etc and found none. Topped up the oil and the same oil usage occurred over the next 5000km. I have now switched to Mobile 1 Synthetic High Mileage oil in the hope that the oil seal swelling component in the oil will help with the usage. The dealer said that at 245,000km the oil usage is normal.
