Question about 1991 Honda Civic
I got a Honda civic dx 99 and I have change the alternator about six time in a week. Having a wired idle problem (idle is going up and down all the way when hot) my obd2 tell me i have error in all my sensor (oxygen, camshaft etc...) due to a drop of voltage to the computer. I tought it was a ground giving false sensor information but about 1 hour the car is running, the alternator is quitting me slowly. I got a rendez-vous to the dealer in 4 days. Understanding i can't repair hard electrical problem for my idle problem, can you tell me if I have to put a 7th alternator to bring it to the garage? It's very expensive for me and i dont want them to make me pay for a new alternator from the dealer (300$). Don't know what is happening :-(. Please help me. Note(recharge sys. verified and fine, battery had good load test, all my sensor are tested and in good conditions)
First of all since you have a hand held i figure you have a volt meter. locate battery wire to the back of your alternator while eng running test output voltage of alt. if less than 13.25v replace ( not with a autozone unit ) actually it should say 14.-16.v im glad you had your battery load tested. lets fix the charging system first of all at that point we will go from there.
