    i did that and it read 14.5 volts any other suggestions would help thank you

    Then it may be a bad (poorly contacting) ground. Check battery ground- clean and retighten, check the engine to frame ground, check the engine and computer harness wiring ground-this ground might be on top of engine. If no help, a shop may be needed to run diagnostics on the charging system.

Alternator may be wearing out. Have the charging system checked. Put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running, lights on, heater fan on. If voltage is less than 13.5 volts, you probably need a new alternator.

Recently bought a 99 CR-V. Had it tuned up and fixed almost everything. Runs very smoothly. One remaining problem is engine going dead while driving or just won't start after parking. Dash lights flicker...


Old post.
same here, there is only 2 paths (besides wild $$$ guessing)
1: yes, do scan it, if the tool goes dead (comms down) the ECU lost 12vdc power. (the CEL goes dead to , just key on, if no power to ECU/PCM.
2: or diagnose the no start.

what is flicker?, the dash lights come on key on to tell you power is ok and all things running them thinks they are happy,
some cars have immobilzers, and it does flicker at IMMO mode.
blocking you.
be specific on lights. what lights to what.
the operators guide is free, and shows each light.

Battery light comes while driving


The warning light comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery. The alternator would need to be checked when the light is on.

SOUND LIKE ALTERNATOR,FIRST CHECK ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT MAKE SURE BELT NOT LOOSE AND DAMAGE AND BELT TENSIONER BAD,CHECK THE ALTERNATOR WIRES FOR DAMAGE.CHECK ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE WHILE ENGINE IDLING SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE REGULATOR FAILING. FIRST TURN OFF RADIO IF YOU DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY TO REPLACE ALTERNATOR BECAUSE THAT WILL KEEP YOU FROM LOCKING OUT RADIO AND LOSING THE PLAYING CODE.
