ZSounds like you have a bad ground situation. There is a grd to the engine from the bat and one from engine to the body at the rear of the engine. chk them both for clean tight connections. Good luck. Your baterry should charge between 13.6 -14.2 range.

Replaced the alternator and battery on 98 civic ex, car ran cherry and all of a suddent doesnt want to start, just died on me while driving.


ran cheery, the exhaust ran red hot? LOL.
the engine runs off the alternator not the battery.
so , if the alt is bad,the battery will discharge.
the alt charge lamp glows, did it?

old post,
bad alt, or battery is no good.
try a known good battery , and make sure the
voltage across the battery is 13.3v to 15vdc running.
if not the ALT System is bad, notice I said system.

btw , replaced means nothing to me.
new , used, rebuilt, recycled, , what?

Alternator has been replaced a year ago on my 2003 honda civic & belts as well as a new battery but the battery light keeps coming on. had my battery & alternator checked & came up good, what...


Checked on the car,recently,and by a repair shop--
because they obviously failed to find your issues &
correct


Alternators are used rebuilt parts,so who knows


Back to some shop & have the issue resolved
We can't guess at several items that cause such
a problem


You need a wiring diagram of the charging system
& then go about testing & resolving


We are either never told the entire story here or repair
shops are not given the chance to fix anything, as the
car owner leaves, if their is an money involved ??!!

I have a 1996 honda civic vtec, my battery will not stay charged took my car to autozone, checked the alternator, battery and there both good. what could be the problem why isnt the battery staying...


I not that familiar with the honda civic vtec, but most cars have a voltage regulator for the battery. Many of the new alternators have this item belt-in, but others are separate components. You may want to check to see what your design is for your model.

On 92 honda civic the battery light stays on. Is


No your alternator is not longer working correctly. It could be as simple as a broken alternator drive belt. Open the hood an see if you see any naked pulleys. If the belt is in place then you most likely with have bad alternator. NAPA and Autozone have stores that can test your old alternator. Con comeone into removing it and have it tested. If it is bad get a REBUILT one. A new one will cost a small fortune!

98 ford windstar has battery light on put new battery in and its still on. I put volt meter on battery while car is running and its reading 16 volts


The problem is the voltage regulator is bad. However the regulator is almost as expensive as a rebuilt alternator so unless the alternator as been replaced recently I would suggest to go with the rebuilt alternator.
