My honda wont start;sit for a few days,find out da battery was low recharge and alternator bad replaced too and start its good but still nothing


Jump start the car and measure with a voltmeter the voltage accross the battery. It should read 13.7 volts or greater with the engine running.if it doesn't it's the alternator or the voltage regulator. If it reads normal 13.7 or greater then measure the voltage accross the battery with the engine off. It should be 12 volts or slightly higher. If those readings are nominal then there is something that is drawing oower when the car is turned off, could be a light or some other short in the electrical system. If you have anything connected to AUX power make sure the voltage is zero volts with the engine off..

2001 hyundai accent possible alternator or wiring issue


the alternator is not charging
that can be from problem alternator , wiring ,fuse , voltage regulator, incorrectly adjusted alternator drive belt or dead battery
best have an accredited auto electrician check it out by bench testing the alternator and voltage regulator and load testing the battery
loose or dirty /corroded battery terminals will also be a part of the problem
if the voltage regulator is integrated with the ECM , you will need a replacement ECM
BUt get the proper diagnosis done first as that will save cash

All of the lights dim when letting off the gas pedal. Is the problem the Battery?


Check the cable connections to the battery. If they are loose or dirty, clean them and tighten them. Check the battery for water while you are at it.

If that is okay, have an auto parts store check your charging system - they do it for free. You could be in the early stages of alternator failure or diode failure.

I had a van that did this for years but was always leery of it.

How to tell if the battery or the altenator is bad


Test the car battery & the alternator supply voltage. If the alternator voltage is around 14 Volts, engine idling and headlamps low beam turned ON, then the battery is bad. After engine stopping, the battery voltage should be at least 12,4 Volts. The battery could be too old and needs to be replaced. If the alternator voltage is below 13,8 Volts then you must check up first time the alternator belt & tensioner pulley. If everything is OK, then the alternator is out of order and needs to be repaired in a dedicated workshop: weared brushes, bad voltage regulator, ...

Low voltage out of replaced alternator


Possible to have bought a bad alternator.... Try another one..Take advantage of the warranty the bad one came with....But have them check the voltage output on the new one so you KNOW for sure....Also consider issues with your voltage regulator and the possibility of needing a replacement. They are relatively inexpensive so that is the good news....More serious issue that could be addressed is a short somewhere in the harness. I would recommend a full electrical diagnostic to make sure there is not a bad ground....If you'd rather not spend a lot, just check all the wires you can visually.....But keep in mind that the voltage regulator is key and you do not want to spike the computer with inconsistent power levels and surges.

Battery went dead while engine was running


Get your alternator checked out or just replace it. sounds like the alternator is not charging the battery on your vehicle. You can take it out and take it to a local kragen or autozone and they will test it for free to see if it is good or not
