Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Hello, i was checkin the honda out today, i noticed that when i hooked up the positive terminal on the batt, it got very hot. also the relay for the dimmer was buzzing. any ideas?
If the positive terminal got hot there is an electrical problem. I believe that you have a problem with your starter the Bendix or the solenoid is stuck. I would recommend you have the starter checked or change. Also if there is a problem with the alternator if its damaged internally you would have the same problem. First check the positive battery cable as it leaves that battery and make sure that it is not exposed meaning the insulation is broken and its not touching the body or any-other metal part of the vehicle. Just take your time are trace the positive cable it will go to the starter and the alternator and the fuse boxes. Also try disconnecting the alt and then try to start the vehicle it can be at fault. Get back to me for more help. Good Luck
