To reset your Honda CR-V Bluetooth, delete your vehicle from your device’s Bluetooth list and delete your device from your vehicle’s Bluetooth system, then re-enable both Bluetooth devices and re-pair them.
Here are the steps to follow:
  • Press the “Settings” button.
  • Scroll to “Phone Settings” and click to select it.
  • Scroll to “Bluetooth Device List” and press to select it.
  • Select the device you would like to remove.
  • Scroll to “Delete This Device.”
  • A confirmation screen will appear. Select YES to confirm the deletion.
To re-pair your phone, follow these steps:
  • Ensure Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile device.
  • On your Honda multimedia screen, press the Home button at the top left.
  • Press “Phone,” then press “YES” to confirm
  • Once promoted to add a new device, tap “YES.” Select your mobile device from the multimedia screen.
  • On your mobile device, select HandsFreeLink® from the Bluetooth menu.
It’s a good idea to reset your CR-V’s Bluetooth system ASAP, since the hands-free device functions are an easy way to cut down on distracted driving. Avoiding infractions and practicing safe driving patterns with hands-free device usage can even help you lower your car insurance rates with a discount!
