Question about 1992 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Need to know why my car would periodically have power fluxuations when driving

I noticed my stereo started to turn on and off, then my car would periodically start to lose power for a few seconds while driving before regaining its power again. This only happened one time but I don't want to get stranded somewhere. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

Agree with the posts you already have recieved , i would also get the alternator charge rate checked , and have the OBD I read as may give a code for this issue bearing in mind that the OBD I was a pretty basic system but useful all the same

First I would check the battery cables and make sure they are tight. After checking at the battery side attachment follow the cables to where they attach on the other end. Make sure they are tight there. Be sure to check the battery cable attachment at the alternator too. Look for broken strands of wire or green corrosion at all the connections. If you do find a cable issue and need to replace,clean or tighten it. Make sure to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery first.

Just from word of mouth I don't know how true this is however, I have heard that alot of European cars are voltage sensitive and all you may need is a new battery. Sounds like when the car runs the alternator will charge the battery giving you correct voltage. This may also be why its periodic due to the alternating temperatures from morning to afternoon etc, the older the battery the harder it gets to maintain amps at start up. Ya never know ifya havent tryed it.

Check Gages light comes on 99 GMC Surban

one of the gauges must a fluxuated enough to have the computer turn the light on,I've seen mostly gas gauges fluxuate,but train your eye where the voltage is in normal mode because it will still look like the needle is up there but it may only be 11 volts instead of 13-14 volts running.

You are correct on checking the sterio, just 12+ and ground to see if it powers up. Fuse 25, in your fuse box should be numbered. If not, just pull them one at a time to see which one got fried.
