2000 honda accord altenator

I need to know how to change the altenator on a 2000 honda accord. I was told that is not holding charge and eventually it will go out, that was about 6 months ago and it finally has started acting up badly on me. I was a few hundred feet from my driveway when it started sputtering. Earlier in the day my radio which is one I had put in would just turn off and then turn back on. After it was dark outside my lights were really dim and as I was getting ready to turn into my driveway the car started sputtering and my abs light came on. Sitting in the drive way it wasnt doing anything so I turned it off and tried to turn it back on. It wouldnt start it wasnt even turning over. About any hour later I went outside so my boyfriend could look at it and it started just fine all my lights were on just as bright as they normally are. If you cant tell me how to change the altenator where would be the best place to get one at and a manual that will tell me how to. I have an Advanced, Auto Zone, Oreillys, and Napa in town. Thanks

    this very similar probleb happened to a friend of mine. He was driving my 1991 accord when the lights went dim and the engine started sputtering. He was also close to home, so he turned off the headlights, and the car ran a little better. I automatically thought alternator, but, the next day it started right up and ran fine, in the driveway.... I have not driven the car since out of fear of being stranded in the below zero weather we get in wisc. now. Anything would be helpful. Kind of need to get it up and running. ...

I had this same problem and had to figiure out how to do it myself. The alternator is very easy to loosen and disassemble from the engine, but extremely difficult to get out. The engine compartment is very tight, not allowing it to come out. Before you remove the alternator, you should first unclamp the radiator and move it out of the way. This will allow you enough room to remove the bad alternator and install the new one. You can purchase a replacement alternator from most any auto parts store for < $100 on a lifetime warranty. If you follow this instruction and move the radiator out of the way, you can complete this job in about 2 hours. It is very easy and can be done with minimal tools. On the other hand, if you screw around like I did, trying to figure out how to be Houdini and "manouver" the alternator in such a way that you can avoid moving the radiator, it will take you 4+ hours. This method simply won't work. Enjoy....

I have a 1983 Honda Accord LX with the charging system light always on. I have had the altenator checked and it is putting out 14.89 and the battery is brand new but receives no charge from the altenator....

I had this problem about 10 years ago on my 1983 Honda Accord so I traced the wiring and found the problem to be with the cable connector that is near the battery. I removed the battery and traced the cable from the alternator to the connector that is located near the bottom of the battery. I unplugged it and checked to see if all the pins were making good contact. Two of them (the main wires from the alternator output) were deteriorated to the point they actually melted part of the plastic plug. Since I wasn't working on a new car, I simply cut the wires from the connectors, stripped about 1/2 inch of the insulation and installed a large wire nut that made a very tight connection when I tightened the wire nut with pliers. I still drive the car every day and haven't had any more trouble with that issue. It would be a good idea to check all the wires in this connector since one of the smaller ones could be broken at the connector itself.

I have a 2000 Honda Accord with 183,000 miles on it the transmission just started to hessitate before shifting into 2 and 3rd gear. I was told this is common in the Accords and they have a non-recall from...

With that mileage I would find an additive for the transmission. Ask you parts store for the bestt. I cannot mention products by name but there are additives that are quite effective. Might save you some time and give you a chance to dump the car. Do not change fluid that may be the end for sure. Now is the time when you need a little sludge in the transmission fluid. Transmission work on a Honda is not cheap.

Battery light stays on

start engine and get someone to hold rpm at 1500 then disconnect battery and if engine stops replace altenator ,if it keeps going then warning light control is U/S but to repair will nesitate removing the altenator and stripping it to change the brush /regulator unit and this can cost nearly as much as a recon altenator ,if it charges then leave it alone it could run for 50.000 miles or more like this

2003 Honda Accord Check Engine / Maintenaice Requeried

If you brought your car to Honda for service, they probably forgot to reset the maintenance reminder. If you took it to another shop, they probably did not know how to reset it. Anyway, the reset procedure is:

Put your key in the ignition
Turn the key to the II position for a couple of seconds
Then turn the key to the off position
Now push and hold in the odometer reset button
While still holding the odometer reset button, turn the key back to the II position
Hold for I think 10 seconds or so and your maintenance reminder light should reset it self.
