So I was having problems being heard while using HFL. Everyone complained that I sounded very distant and that I could not be heard very well, even when I leaned in closer to the mic. Did some research.. and experimenting and this is what I came up with.
The Navigation unit in the CR-Z has a diagnostic mode (meant for techs to use as trouble shooting) but has the ability to set the mic sensitivity for the driver.
Step 1: With the car running and in park, Simply press and hold the Map, Menu and Cancel buttons down for about 5 seconds and you will see this screen:
At this screen select the "Detailed Information and Settings" Tab and you will see this menu:
On this Screen select "Functional Setup" and you will see a screen that looks like this:
At this screen press the talk button on your steering wheel controls and talk in a normal speaking voice from your normal sitting position. It will record your voice levels and adjust the microphone sensitivity level accordingly. For example, the lower you voice appears on the sensitivity meter the more it will turn the mic sensitivity up. Afterward, press return until you are out of this mode. The people you call should now be able to hear you much better when using your HFL and also the the Navigation unit will better understand your commands.
Note: I highly suggest you do not tamper with anything else in this menu, this is for techs and advanced users and you could change something that would prove harmful!!!!
Sorry that I have no info for non-nav units but being I own a CR-Z with a NAV I was only able to test on my own vehicle. So please if you have a non nav unit and find any info to add to this post... Please do! :hi5:
Anyone know where I can find a replacement for the drivers side?
It seems a lot of us have had this problem. I went to get into my car and it completely broke off.
Now I have to get in on the passengers side :(
Edit: sorry for the lack of space bar in the title
Hey guys, new to the forum. I just bought a 2011 CR-Z and the fog lights are broken. I’m looking to order the 09-11 civic fog lights to replace them but need to know if it matters if it’s the coupe or sedan model.
Also does it matter which trim?

My drivers seat was ridiculously squeaky. Every slight movement it would squeak from the bolsters to the back rest.
It was the seat foam rubbing against the metal frame. So whenever I went over bumps, pressed the clutch it would squeak.
I stripped down the seat and covered as much of the steel...
I've been looking through the forum for pictures showing safe locations to jack the car up at and most of them are either blurred out by photobucket or dead links that have no pictures attached to them. I'm not looking to jack up the middle lift points in the middle of the front...
