2014 Honda CR-V fuse by-pass switch

Many threads have been published on this topic. Here is one more and I hope it helps someone.

As stated in several threads, the 7.5A fuse to be removed, per Honda, is in a bear of a location. Too boot, it is a low profile type, hard to get out and near impossible to reinstall without loosing it (as i did) in the hole under the fuse box.

The following pictures are of my solution. I used a standard profile fuse. Drilled to receive 2 8mm screws, pulled the fuse legs out of the housing to cut the fuse link, attached 2 stakeon eye terminals under the screws and filled the space between the fuse legs and the area between the screws with epoxy for strength and stability. The fused leg wire went to the + terminal of the sw and the ground of the sw was attached to a bolt in the car console, behind the panel used for the sw.

Parts list:

One ATM fuse
2 8mm brass wood screws
2 small #6 or #8) ring stakeon terminals
3 spade stakeon female terminals
1 ground ring stakeon
3 colors of wire (white, black, blue for instance)
1 in-line ATM fuse holder
1 7.5A ATM fuse
Single pole single throw switch
epoxy

I made something similar for my 2006 Saturn Vue which has the Honda drive-train, V-6 engine and 5 speed transmission.

Took me a few hours to put it all together once I had the parts.

VERY convenient and can also double as a theft deterrent.

"theft deterrent"? How so?? Mine just shuts down the ACC power and center display in the "I" key position. No radio when the engine is on.

Different fuses due to different year of auto's.

Mine is a 30 amp ignition fuse located in the main fuse box under the hood. It disables the entire dash and ignition.

The older Honda CRV's were the same as the Saturn Vue's with the V-6 engines back then.

Obviously they have changed the electrical systems and how they operate.
