Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Electrical loss of battery charging

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

Get the charging system looked at to verify that it is charging good. Some vehicles will flash both during a alternator issue.

Honda Accord 2003 Battery blink and steering jam


When your battery light comes on while your car is running, it indicates that your charging system has stopped functioning (as least while the light is on). It is recommended that if that happens, you should immediately turn off any electrical loads (AC, heater, wipers, radio, etc.) that you can do without, and get to a place where your charging system can be checked. The engine will not run for very long with the battery not getting a charge.
Hope this helps you understand the problem.

i think there was a re call for this car & there was a problem with ignition switch. i was searching on other forums for the fix. i got a fix that there is a problem with ignition switch. so just try & replace ignition switch which would not cost u more than $100. Try it & post if your problem is fixed. Also if u have any othr solution then also fix this problem.

It sounds like the Belt Tensioner is not Holding the Belt Tight Enough. If the Belt is not Tight enough it will Not allow the Alternator to Charge the Battery and will Cause the Problem Stated Above. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Battery


You may have a light staying on somewhere in the car, that is almost always the cause, lighted vanity mirrors, glove box light, truck lights, You also need to fully charge and test the battery.
