Question about Honda Civic
Did the battery go bad or down? Batteries fail if their overcharged, not charged, or dragged down from sitting with a draw on them. The altenater may not work correctly as a fuse may be blown. The big power wire on the back of the altenater is hot all the time the battery is connected. Make sure that it is. The plug that plugs into the altenator one wire hot all the time and the other is on with the key if itdoes'nt do that your on the serch to do that. with a volt OHM meter you can tell if it's charging 14.5 volts running and 12.6 volts sitting with the key off. if the battery is below 10 volts the altanator may be a good one but it's smart enough to not to try to charge a dead battery so it won't turn on. The liklyhood of the battery being bad even with it new is possible so don't rule that out.
