Question about 2001 Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Honda Civic, the dash lights and head lights flicker, pulsating but staying on. The battery is charged and there doesn't appear to be a short or loose ground wire? Could this be the Alternator/Voltage Regulator

Bad alternator/voltage regulator or your car may have a body ground sensor, it will need to be checked with a computer to get this one diagnosed properly. Headlight switch may be the problem itself, lots of moving components in them now days.

I have a 2000 honda civic dx 1.6l and when i drive down the road and come to a stop all my dash lights and head lights flicker


Sounds like a bad diode in the voltage regulator. This will cause fluctuations in the DC voltage. The faster the engine goes, to less noticeable the fluctuations will appear. Have the alternator/regulator checked and serviced as necessary.

Recently my Honda Civic 2005 dashboard, head light started flickering. When I hit breaks paddle the dashboard lights dim. Please help.


bad 12v DC battery power feeds, this is called {Power Distribution
so can be lots of reasons.
1: corroded battery lugs tops the list and are checked at every service point. skipped this?
2:loose or bad fuse to HL.
3: corrosion at any related connectors. (12v side or ground side)

after an inspection passes, (ask) we wip out the DMM meter
turn the dial to volts and find it. easy.
very easy. ask)
if all this is unclear, go to the man, the ASE mech, (badge on sleeve)

pS: dash dimming means lost PARK lights too.
so is more serious,, or more closer to battery this fail.

The red light flickering could be a diode fault within the alternator. Pulsating could also be a fault with the alternator or a faulty ground/earthing point for either the battery or the harness. If your drivebelt tension is fine, its more than likely the alternator. Hope this helps...

Sounds like you may have bad battery make sure your battery is getting the charging voltage of 13,8 volts or higher check it with a volt meter and see if the alternator is working right I've gotten bad alternators one can never be to sure than elminate that problem and move onto the battery make sure its good. it should have 12.6 volts or higher after it has been fully charged or you think its charged . than last check your relays and your fuses make sure there all working good luck
