You can follow the ground from the battery to the frame. Cleaning the connections to the battery and the frame including making sure the frame is bare metal where the ground bolts on will usually fix a ground issue. If your alternator is bad it won't charge the battery. But it won't drain your battery. An easy way to test your alternator is to start the car, and remove the positive battery cable. The vehicle should be able to run off of the alternator with no lights on. Hope this helps

1986 Honda Accord, no power


You have a loose wire or cable, or have blown a fuse or fusible link somewhere. Check battery terminals, connections to the alternator, negative terminal to engine, engine to body, battery to body. A voltmeter is essential for speed and accuracy. A mechanic can sort this out in no time flat. 25316044-dz1fkxf1fwolart5ai0divhk-4-0.jpg

After driving like two hours with the headlights on, my battery run flat and the car stops


I'm assuming,your alternator is not charging your
battery. Use a digital multimeter,or load tester,to test
the battery voltage,while the vehicle is idling. It should
be somewhere around 13.8 volts. If higher,your voltage regulator is bad,if much lower,the alternator
is bad. Good luck.

You need to discharge the AC system and remove the evaporator to replace the expansion valve. No two way about it.

No need to remove the dash
