Question about 1996 Honda Civic
I have a 1996 Honda Civic that blows the Alternator SP Sense fuse upon startup; as a result the battery is not charging & the car runs on battery only... Also of note: The dashboard idiot light for charge doesn't come on to tell me there is a problem... I replaced the alternator & battery recently because I thought they were bad but that didn't take care of my fuse blowing problem... I'm starting to suspect that the Electrical Load Detector has a problem but I'm not totally sure... I scanned the computer with a friend's unit & came up with no relavent codes. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you...
Sounds like a short to ground. Get a wiring diagram and trace the circuit that keeps blowing the fuse...Look for burnt or bare wires...Good Luck!
