All running lights, dash lights and headlights on my 1998 Honda Civic LX flicker/surge when the car is running

hey Trenna.. well I'l try to be as simple as possible and take my time communicating with you until we can get a handle on it.. Normally this problem comes from the alternators rectifier circuit. Basically it controls the conversion from ac current to dc current. and the dipping lights suggest its dropping power.

now these lights get their power from the ACCESSORY system which is the same as what the cigarette and the factory radio gets its power from.. Follow so far ??

so now we have to look at 3 things..
The amount of power going to the system, (the alternator should always be pushing around 13.5 volts)

The kind of power AC/ DC.. (its always dc but if the rectifier or regulator is broken some ac will leak in)..

and for a short circuit in the wiring for the accessories.

can you get your son in law to double check his wiring and find the missing cigarette lighter wires, and also if he has a Volt meter to check the amount of current coming from the alternator to the battery while the car is idling ??

i know you said your not a car person so we will need some one to help out with all the testing work..

Btw the SRS light is the air bag click system located in the steering wheel. Its what triggers the airbags in case of an accident. Normally from constant turning these wires get broken and the clock mechanism needs to be replaced.

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.

Clean battery cables and battery posts. If that does not work you probably need a new battery.

Flickering lights

In some 1999/2000 Cougars the wire between the battery and the voltage regulator(altenator) had a resistance reading that is too high. Ford has issued an TSB 00-25-6 that has instructions on how to replace this wire. The part # for the replacement wire is
1S8Z-14A411-AA. I'm in Michigan and a local dealer found one for me in South Bend,IN

Flickering lights alond with the engine!

it sounds like the voltage regulator is is integrated into your altenator so you will want to have your charging system checked

Hi .....EF fford falcon , the alt light comes on , light go dim , dash gauges go to zero , the lights buzzer goes off , and will stall the engine , if you jump start it , it may go back to normal, and...

Sounds like the alternator needs replacing or a loose wire/cable.Check the starter and alternator wires/cables are securely fastened.Also use a multi meter to check wether your alternator is providing enough power to run the electrical system,should be producing no less than 12.8 with all lights etc switched on.
