Question about Acura Cars & Trucks
Alternator went bad. After replacing the Alternator everything except CD changer works.
If the battery was disconnected you will need to enter the radio security code to get it working again, see the dealer for details.

You might want to follow the wire(s) that go into your alternator are properly connected. If you have a bad connection on either side it will cause it to cut in and out and fry the coils in it.

djn, I believe you have some accessory that is on when the key is in the off position.
Check to make certain glove box light is not on when the glove box door is closed and the trunk light is not on.
If you have an aftermarket radio or any added accessories make sure they are not wired direct to battery voltage.
If all that checks out, disconnect the battery negative and connect a test light between the battery and battery cable. If the light is on you have a drain in the electrical system. Leave the light connected and begin removing 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, that will tell you what component or circuit is draining the battery.
Last resort, you may have an alternator drawing the battery down.
Good luck and let me know.

Having worked for an Isuzu dealer I have seen this a lot with aftermarket alternators from places like auto-zone, napa etc. For some reason they will do strange things in these vehicles. The fix was to get a Isuzu alternator. We did have good luck with Beck Arnly alternators also. We also had a local rebuilder repair some with good luck too. If all else fails get a used one.

SOURCE: cd player says bad disc
Before you go and spend all that hard earn money, buy a CD player cleaner at Radio Shack, or The Source if your in Canada.
I believe there in the clearance bin most of the time for $4.99 if it's your lucky day.
Good luck and hope this helps.
