Most auto parts stores will have testers for both your battery and the alternator. A few minutes and you will know the source of your problem.

SOURCE: battery wont charge on a 1983 honda prelude

If the battery is continually going flat, first test that the alternator is charging at least 13.5 volts at the battery. If that is ok check the current drain when the car is turned off. It should be less than .050Amp (50 milliamps) If all that is ok get the battery tested. If its more than 3 years old its likely to have a weak cell and will need replacing.

SOURCE: i just washed the out

For a car to run it must have ignition, fuel and air (for combustion). each of these can be checked easily:

1) If you have a rubber glove or plastic bad, take off the to the distributor (from the coil) and hold it with the glove or plastic material about 1/4 inch from a piece of clear metal on the car body or engine (a bolt works). If it sparks the ignition is ok when you have someone crank over the engine.

2) take the top of the air cleaner off to see if you can confirm gasoline is being pumped when someone cranks the engine. Or, get some starter fluid and spray it into the air cleaner when it is cranked over by someone. If it starts and dies again it is either your fuel pump or it is out of gas. If the air cleaner is dirty try the above without it (replace if dirty).

If the above does not work it needs to be checked by a mechanic.

My 98 prelude wont sttay on.. i replaced the alternator, batterym spark plugs and wires.... everytyme i get a jump it comes on and as soon as i take em off the car shuts off


Well, you seem to have replaced parts that I would have changed in the course of trying to solve a starting/charging problem.
And a tune up problem.

I would recheck the connections at the battery and clean with a wire brush if necessary.

However, the alternator, if working correctly, should keep the car running after you start it with the jumper cables. There's something wrong there, I think.

Battery will not charge. Changed alternator and battery still will not keep battery charged.


The battery may be bad. Most service stations or auto parts stores can test this for free.

All electronic accessories work when key is in


test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

1992 prelude si - battery/alternator prob?


if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work

My honda prelude stalled an now the stater is makins a funny nois and the moter wont turn over wat do i do


sounds like you have a dead battery and possible a bad altenator have the battery checked out and replace if bad. If not recharge and if the car starts have the charging system checked out you may have a bad altenator or voltage regulator probably built in the altenator. Possibly the starter but not likely since it stalled while running.
