Question about 2006 Honda Odyssey

Open Question

Odyssey alternator Battery light stays on. Thought it was old battery issue. Replaced it and light still stays on. Measured the new battery when van is running, it was around 12v. Obviously, charging system is not working. Before replacing the alternator, please advise steps to eliminate other possible issues that could cause battery not being charged. As you know alternator is expensive. I want to be sure it is the problem before I spend big money. Thanks.

Sounds like a short to ground. Get a wiring diagram and trace the circuit that keeps blowing the fuse...Look for burnt or bare wires...Good Luck!

Have you checked the alternator fuse? The regulator needs power from the fuse to turn on the alternator. The old alternator could have blown the fuse.

SOURCE: My battery is boiling and smelling. Is it a faulty battery, or is my alternator causing it to over-charge the battery?

You need to replace the battery to start with. you cannot test the charging system with the battery the way it is or you will get a false reading. Once you replace the battery, you can then test your charging system to see if the alternator is causing the problem. If its charging more than 14.8 -15 volts, its too much and you will need to replace the alternator.

Have an 07 f350 Ford pick up 6.0L power stroke .batterys replaced . Alternator replaced . Dash battery light still stays on no charge .soure voltage gd to alternator ,and plug . Reads gd voltage to si


I would try the regulator, there is a few tests to see if the alternator is charging, use a multi meter and check the b post on the alternator and earth and see what voltage it is producing, check all those sort of things and you will find the problem, make sure the battery terminals are very clean or they won't accept charge as well, hope this helps

Charger is not charging


Charger? you must mean the alternator. It has to put out at least 13.8 volts to charge a 12 volt lead acid battery. There are 3 diodes in there and a chip called a diode trio. Did you replace the voltage regulator? While you had it apart you needed to check the stator (the wired cage that is fixed and the rotor which spins. If either is black in color instead of copper it is fried.)
The best thing to do for that van is get a replacement alternator from one of the parts houses and make sure you get one with a lifetime warranty! They are very hard on alternators as the under hood temp is so high.

Have new battery, why is battery light still on?


Problem could be the alternator ( battery charger), seems like it doesn't charge battery.
You can test it With a DC meter , with your van Stopped mesure DC voltage (should be around 12 V) , when running should be around 13 V (Depending on the regulator) .
Hope this help you to fix your issue

My van looses battery charge. Just put a new alternator, and a new battery in, and now the alternator is not charging the battery . What could the problem be?


Before the alternator was replaced it was important that the charging current was measured with an ammeter to confirm charging.It is possible that the rectifier/regulator to the alternator is faulty.This electronic control unit determines the charging current.Please check this unit in your car for failure.Check this link for tips.

Have changed out the Alternator and battery with new ones. Battery will still not stay charged. Thought it may be a Voltage Regulator issue is that the only other thing it could be?


MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY CABLES ARE CLEAN AND TIGHT.MAKE SURE YOU ARE GETTING GOOD GROUND AT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.IF BATTERY CABLES VERY OLD REPLACE THEM.IF ALL IS GOOD ALTERNATOR HAS LOOSE B+ WIRE AND FIELD WIRES CONNECTIONS MAKE SURE NONE OF WIRES DAMAGED AND ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT NOT LOOSE SLIPPING.IF ALL GOOD YOUR ALTERNATOR HAS THE WRONG AMP AMPS TOO LOW HAVE WRONG ALTERNATOR. OR YOU HAVE FAULTY ALTERNATOR.

My 2006 honda odyssey won't start...2 days ago I replaced the battery thinking it was this issue...The van won't click over to start...the VSA and ABS light comes on faintly..could it be an alternator?


it sounds like that, if after installing the battery, it ran and started good, then this tells me it run until it drained the battery, so this tells me theres a charging problem, make sure the belt is on and then take a good look at the alternator and battery connections,then check the alternator output to see if its charging, it should put out 13.5 to 14.5 volts with engine running, if it doesnt then replace battery,you can also check for power at the alternator and other tests but i dont want to confuse you, a good thing to do is when removed just to double check have the parts store test it for you, it sounds like a bad alternator, hope this is helpful, good luck.

Battery Light issue


Did you have the old alternator bench-tested before buying another? Same for the battery? Have to ask if the light is actually the battery light or check engine. GM lights will come on for periodic maintenence, as reminder.

Hi,

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
