HONDA has a fix- I THINK! I just got a call from my dealership today (finally) and my car is going in Wed. to have this software update. So hopefully this actually solves the problem. I will give an update if it really helps. I will have to let it sit this upcoming weekend.

Service Bulletin 19-039 (dated 3/29/19) addresses this issue. It is a software update to the Evaporative Emission System computer. Applicable to EX, EX-L and Touring models. Take your car to the dealer to have this update installed.

We got a call from our Dealer today too. I was beginning to think they forgot about us! We haven’t decided what to do yet because three people on the page link I gave above had worse problems. They are getting their cars looked at again.

I'm having the same problem on a 2019 CRV. Going in in 2 days for software update. Hoping that it doesn't cause any other issues. I'll report back if it does.

National Honda Customer Service technician strongly felt bulletin 19-039 addressed the issue. I am taking my 2019 CRV, EX- car in to the local dealer tomorrow, June 14 and keep my fingers crossed. Also, be aware of the Steering Wheel Control and SRS Subwire Recall ... bulletin: 19-062.

I am considering to buy new 2019 Honda CRV EXL but not sure because of above feedback. Can you share your inputs - has the issue been resolved for you guys ? I have to make a choice between 2019 Honda CRV EX/EXL or 2019 Nissan Rogue SV/SL

I had service bulletin 19-039 for my 2019 Honda CRV-EXL done 10 days ago but disappointed that the service manager at Chapman Auto, Tucson did not even know about it and seemed to not take any interest. Same with 19-062 Steering wheel recall. It was ordered 10 days ago by service manager but a phone call on the 8th. day to parts stated that it had never been ordered. Honda USA customer service stated that the update hardware(steering wheel) is available now or will be available at the latest the end of June, 2019. I have not experienced any further problem with the battery discharge but still too early to give a credible answer. I still think about buying a portable, hand held charger with a Li battery.

Bought a 2019 new CRV honda in Jan 2019, from Burns Honda Marlton NJ twice I've had battery replaced despite the new software update. Battery replaced May 27 and July 10, 2019. They said it was a dead cell. Was told the first time it would be okay and now they are saying that the same. I don't think that they care. The problem still persists .It should be some legal action taken ie class action suit or lemon law. Replacing battery and software update did not help. Winter is not here yet .

Boy, Honda is in trouble, First with hundreds maybe thousands of their 1.5 turbo engines dumping RAW gasoline in to the oil, then this! With all these dead batteries on NEW cars! People will start buying American, like Ford and Chevy.

My CR-V EXL battery drain issue was fixed after installing the PCM software update as recommended in the service bulletin 19-039. I have put car without use for 34 days, but no issue discovered. It looks like PCM software update fixes the issue.

My 2019 crv battery has died twice, even after the recall update. It cannot sit more than 3 days. They suggested I get a Jump Start kit or make arrangements for someone to come and start it when I'm out of town .....really!! UNACCEPTABLE. It is new and I'm not standing for this. I will get a lawyer or whatever I have to do, up to includiing a new car!!!! Right now I hate this vehicle and would not recommend a Honda to anyone.

Complex, intermittent problem + ill-informed and ill-trained service advisors = a headache and a dead car for me. 2019 Honda CRV Touring Battery found dead Nov 15th after sitting for 5 days in the garage. Car purchased in September. Parasitic load TSB as well as other recalls were applied 6 months before purchase. Ironically, two weeks after purchase it, it sat for 7 days @ the airport and started right off. Nov 16: Over the phone, a Chapman Tucson Service claimed that the TSB for parasitic drain didn't apply to my VIN. November 20 car in shop @ Chapman Hoda in Tucson. Service advisor blamed the battery & replaced it under warranty. I'll let it sit 2 days this weekend and report back. Chapman Tucson's service advisors claimed to have seen many dead batteries on the 2019 CRV. That notwithstanding, my initial service advisor when I brought the car in argueded that TSB didn't apply to my CRV...UNTIL I SHOWED HIM THIS WEBSITE A SMARTER ADVISOR THEN PULLED THE HISTORY WHICH SHOWED THAT IT'D BEEN APPLIED 5 months before I bought the car.

Please read the following thread from the beginning. There are many, many posts regarding the battery problem. https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t84281_ds1000311? sntEmlId=2691151973#msg953400

Purchased a new 2019 crv yesterday. Took it home and 1 hour later it would not start. Had it towed back to dealer. Thanks for the post, I “informed” my dealer about the bulletin. Hopefully that will work.

I have the same problem.the car is totally dead.it starts with a battery booster but all the information on the dash are wrong and not all there.Big mistake to sell my F150 for this piece of garbage. This is the second time with this problem.They replaced one part by the starter button.not reliable at all.I am afraid to drive it
