Disconnect battery, disconnect altenator wire harness. Remove bolts and pull out altenator. When reinstalling new altenator, there should be an adjustable pulley called tensioner pulley that will either have to be pulled up or pushed down in order to put belt back on.

Will alternator off a 92 accord fit on a 92 acura legend


what a hard question... so many things to check
.internal reg, or PCM reg.
Amp output and physical fit. pulley size, type, and clocking. connector type, and pinout., to say the least.

i picked an autostore, at random , and it dont match.
not only that, you risk blowing your engine PCM using the wrong alt.
you never said which car was the donor, so can really answer fully.
my guess the legend.

the legend has an internal reg.
the accord is PCM controlled, a hopeless match
i looked this up, on alldata.com , schematics.

New altenator new battery but battery light stays on and car wont start without a jump and then dies while driving after a few minutes. i drive an 89 acura legend


Hi!!
Your best bet is to remove the battery or the negative battery cable, charge it and drive your vehicle to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar Autoparts store to have your charging system checked. If the engine is running, even if you disconnect the negative battery cable it should stay running, if it dies, the alternator is not working, probably the voltage regulator. If you just bought the alternator, try to take the vehicle to that place so they can check it. If you don't think the car would make it to the auto parts store. Remove the alternator and the battery to have them tested. It is not unusual that an alternator fails when just out of the box. Good Luck!!

I need a radio code for my 92 acura legend vin


You have to do this: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!

91 acura legend


There is a connector under floor mat on front passenger side.
With the car turned off, jump this contactor out and turn the car to on position. After 2 seconds the abs light will blink given you codes.
After you fix the problem, you will need to remove the jumper, and pull all 3 abs fuses. Wait 3 seconds a reinstall the fuses. Now plug the connector back into its holder.
Now start the car, and the code should be cleared.
