Dying Alternator Honda dx 99

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.

what voltage do you see on the battery when the engine is running?
if its a 12V battery you should see around 14 volts when charging.

1990 Honda Civic dx intermittant alternator failure


along with the relay issue they some models have a very tight route for wiring from the battery to the main harness components check very carefully for any tight spots the wires may be severed also check the frame ground from the - battery terminal wire and connection itself. last suggestion do you get lights and accesories when this happens or is everything dead if you do it could be a bad connection to the starter and have nothing to do with the alternator or battery
