Question about 1996 Honda Accord
96 Honda Accord EX. When I drive the light that indicates the battery is not charging flickers. The car will lose all electrical functions with the speedometer and the tach dropping to zero and the lights slowly dieing. Then car then shuts down. The car acts as if the battery or alt is gone but after sitting a hour or so it will start again but dies rather quickly. I have pulled the alt and battery and both test as good on multiple occassions. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Sounds like you have shorting to ground, check the ignition switch , or melted wires, bad connections,something is causing a short when ignition is forward, could be a radio or any other electrical hook up ,tests with a volt meter will need to be done to check for continuity when there should not be and other
test will need to be done to start to eliminate possible causes
