2014 Honda CRV Breakaway Wire

I was looking under the rather crowded hood today for the steering column boot to run my breakaway wire. I didn't actually see where the column shaft comes through the firewall. I did see a big wire loom with a rubber boot behind the air filter box and to the left. Picture attached. Randy if you see this please advise. Thanks

2014 Honda CRV Breakaway Wire

Donít know if you are directing this question to me. While my handle is Kluffinator my name is Randy.

My 2012 CRV is at the shop at the moment so Iím not able to pop the hood to confirm. Iíll do a bit of research while Iím watching the Dodgers and hoping for a win.

You may need to look up from below to see the shaft.

Thanks for the reply. No different Randy, he has a 2014 and told me he went through steering boot. I was thinking the same thing about drive by wire. Underneath you can see nothing. All covered with plastic panels. Tried that also.

Yep. When I installed my ready brake cable I had to remove the plastic splash pan. Itís not difficult, just a lot of fasteners.

noserider-

Our Honda Fit has a boot that looks like that one, on the passenger side, below the glove box. That's where I took the wires through. Made an x-shaped pair of slits, ran the loom-with-wires through (at a flat angle to the firewall, as it turned out), then terminated on a termination strip. From there over to the driver side under the very top of the dash, for the control unit and access to the rear lights. Used silicone to seal the hole through the boot.

Could have gotten by without the termination strip, but the wires were not long enough, and I didn't want a bundle of splices to cut in case something needed repair or replacement.

The hardest part was removing the heat distribution box and fan, which are below the glove box. I found out later that Honda has a procedure for this.

If any of that applies to your CR-V, I don't know!

I ran mine thru the steering shaft boot which I think is lower down than your pic. Just after the the motor for steering (2014 CRV is electric steering) there is a rubber boot that seals the shaft.

What toad braking system are you using? I don't see any brakeaway wire going through the firewall with mine.

Your breakaway wire (M&G braking) does not go through the firewall. I have a Brake Buddy. I may upgrade one day to the M&G or the Air Force One. I'm still using the equipment that the previous owner sold me when I bought the coach.

On my 2012 CR-V, I poked a hole in the wire loom grommet shown in your picture and pushed the breakaway wire through it to my Blue Ox Patriot Brake

I would use that boot and press a hole through, just outside where the loom is, in the center. I like to use an old coat hangar. Cut the hangar with side cutters, which will leave an angled point. Connect the hangar to whatever you want to pull through and and puncture the bot with the hangar. I like to add a dab of silicone to the hole when I'm done.
