Check charging system and make sure that the alternator is charging efficently and get back to me, because its electrical alternator can be defective especially if its aftermarket.( should be at least 14 volts with car running at idle) Good Luck

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

My Honda 2009 2.0LX2009 model has charging system indicator light flashing. I have changed the battery and alternator but the problem persists

I'm not understanding what you are saying.
The battery should have a rating of at least 500 amps or more.
That is the cranking amps at zero degrees which has nothing to do with the warning light.
The light comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery. So if the light is on something is keeping the alternator from charging, or from the extra voltage from reaching the battery.
You would need to have the charging system tested by a shop with the necessary equipment. And probably not by the shop you are using now.

The battery bulb must be blown out on my 1993 honda accord because it's not coming on when i turn on my car! Rather than tearing my dashboard apart to replace it,Will this cause my alternator not to...

Be sure that Fuse #2 (15 amps) is good. The WHITE/BLUE wire at the alt should have 12 v and when you ground that wire the light should come on. If that checks out good, check the volotage at the battery with engine running, it should be above 13 v, if not the alt is not charging. replace the alternator.

Charging system in 94 accord lx

Where did you buy the Alternator? It could be a defective unit. Chain auto parts stores have a poor record with rebuilds.

Charging problem

Possible solution. It could be the belt tensioner. It might not hold the belt tight enough to have a consistent charge to the battery through the alternator. I had to replace the one on my 91 accord and that solved my problem.

Charging system problem

Possible problems: 1.  Used or rebuilt alternator is also bad. 2.  Improper installation.  Wires not reconnected to the alternator. 3.  Open wire on wire harness leading to the alternator. 4.  Improper belt adjustment.  The belt could be too loose. 
If this is not helpful please provide more information and symptoms.  Answer questions like:  Does your car start? Can you jump start and drive the car long distances?  After jump starting the car, is the battery light still on?  Did you have someone check the new battery to ensure it is a good one?  Are you competent enough to do simple repairs such a battery and alternator replacement?  Answering some of these questions may result in a more helpful answer to your problem.
