SOURCE: 1991 Accord LX is not charging the battery properly

You have a pretty good handle on the situation, but you need some help. The battery light gets it signal directly from the voltage regulator on the Alternator. The fact that it is turning on and off is indicative of a problem with the alternator and not the battery. However this is what I would do. First I would get me a little jumper test lead and hook it to the output lead of the Alternator, and check voltage between the Positive battery terminal and Alternator output lead with the engine running at high idle ( 1200rpm). This reading should be less than 0.5 Volts, any higher and you have a wiring problem in your charging circuit. Then take the a resding between the Alternator and Negitive battery post. This should be 13.5 to 14.8, if not you have a bad voltage regulator and you need a new alternator. If all this checks out then check voltage between the Alternator housing and the Negitive battery post, again the reading should be less than 0.5 volts. If higher check all your ground connections between alternator and engine and engine to ground. But since you aren't complaninig about hard starting I would guess this isn't the problem. I'm hearing Alternator. Your local autoparts store can do a load check to conferm this. Good Luck, and don't forget to vote

SOURCE: Dashboard lights and warning chimes.

The computer detected a fault. You SHOULD NOT drive it around with that blinking, or you will regret it. Take it to the dealership immediately and have them pull the code.

Starter ok no blown fuse. all lights working but it wont start. anti theft light blinking fast os soon as you turn it to on. what is the problem.

it is the microchip on your key.. you have to reset the key by sticking it into your ignition and turn it to the run position for 5 mins. at this time the light should stop blinking then turn your key to the off position for 1 sec. repeat six times then your last attempt the car would start guarantee.... notice: as you turn the key to run position the light would blink rapidly for 5mins.. right when it stops turn to the off position for 1 sec.. remember six times..
