Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 2004 CRV - the battery light kept flickering, gauges would go in and out. Went and had my battery and alternator tested...and got new battery, my alternator was good. Immediately after putting in the new battery my radio/cd player went dead. That was 4 months ago. Yesterday the battery light started flickering again. Today all dash gauges went dead, by the time I got to my destination my car died and it would not restart...no noise, nothing.

SOURCE: replaced alternator 23days ago, now battery light

if you have or can gain access to a voltmeter, while the car is running without jumper cables on it hook up the voltmeter to the batter posts and see what the alternator is charging at, a good working alt should charge from 13.5 to 15v, i have seen many new parts go bad fast or be bad from the start

OK, try to replace the alternator with one that is 'lifetime' warranted rather than one with a '1 year' warranty or less.

Return the bad alternator to the auto parts retailer, and get a higher quality one.

I've had several bad experiences with one year warranteed alternators, some that were bad right out of the box.

I would say that the alternator is, again, at fault, but this time due to cheaper components causing your problem.

Keep leaning to the alternatoir. Put a digital meter across the b attery with the car running. Should read 14 vdc or higher.

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

System says "Battery not charging"


Hi, your alternator has likely packed up. Recommend you remove the alternator and have it tested at a parts chain. If you need instructions, please let me know.

Alternator keeps going bad - three so far. Battery light flickering off/on now.


You have probably been getting 'rebuilt' units which is not bad in itself but if the rebuilder received a batch of bad diodes they may have these failures until they are exhausted.
But, buddy, you ain't broke my record yet; a lousy Saturn (LAST GM I will own!) bought new, ate SIX (6) alternators in 57,600 miles. That wasn't the worst problem; it ate the auto tranny at 31,000 and dropped a rod cap at the above final mileage.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee intermittent voltage drop, lose electric


I wont list this as a solution, but it seems that working in the area of the alt may have moved around some wiring...the alt may be OK but perhaps an adjacent wire (maybe a ground) is not well connected. Also check crimped on wire loops on alt connectors..they like to corrode at the crimp where it crushes on the actual wire.
