Question about 1995 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Battery light comes on while I'm not driving. As soon as I put on the gas pedal the light disappears. Two days ago the battery was dead, autozone charged it back up 100 percent. I believe the battery is at least 5-6 years old. Should I be looking to buy a new battery?

If the light only comes on when you are at a low RPM but goes off when at a higher RPM the alternator is shot

Changed alternator, belt and battery on 01 sable ls after driving for a short time air bag light and gas light come on and car dies....help?


First thing is to see if the battery needs charging. If it has a full or near full charge, then maybe a loose or corroded battery cable connection is making the car seem dead..
You have to get the engine cranking at a normal rate or speed, to first see if it will start. If you get it cranking and it won't start, see if your fuel pump has failed. Best way to check that is to have the fuel pressure tested. No fuel pressure from a failed fuel pump is a major cause of a 'no start' condition.

I'd take it to any good parts store (autozone, advance, etc..) and have them do a FREE charging system test and load test your battery. Almost sounds like your alternator is not charging or starting to go bad (not charging at full capacity)

The technician should check for a short by putting an inductive ammeter on the positive or negative cable.

If the draw is over .2 A you have a short somewhere in your car's transmission, or accessories, or something.

unhook your car battery for about a half hour. hook it back up and see if the lights are off now. all the codes should reset, drive the car over to autozone and have them test the charging system to see that it is operating correctly. also if your radio is of the anti-theft variety make sure you know the code to activate it and how to enter it.

2001 Jeep GrCh. starts, let go of gas, it stops. Battery not to


Besides the obvious: checking your alternator/charging system. If the check engine light is not on, or it comes on, and after awhile it comes off, then a couple of hours or days later it comes on again it might the crankshaft sensor. It happened to me, and it was a pain in the neck to diagnose as the check engine light had turned off and the computer wouldn't read any codes to diagnose the problem. My mechanic was trained by Mopar/Jeep, so he immediately knew what was happening.

If it is a dead or shorted battery, when the RPM's are up the vehicle will run, and you might notice a loss on power. Once the engine goes to idle and the RPM's come down the engine will die, as there is not sufficient electrical power generated by the alternator to supply the engine. A bad alternator will cause battery problems.

Battery Light remains on when car started, and while driving


The battery light is on because there is a problem in the charging system for the battery, have the charging system tested by a parts store like Autozone, it is free. If the Alternator is defective I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU BUY IT FROM AUTOZONE. Purchase a rebuilt unit from the new car dealer parts, they are much more reliable and the extra cost is worth the money.
