I have a 1996 honda civic vtec, my battery will not stay charged took my car to autozone, checked the alternator, battery and there both good. what could be the problem why isnt the battery staying...


I not that familiar with the honda civic vtec, but most cars have a voltage regulator for the battery. Many of the new alternators have this item belt-in, but others are separate components. You may want to check to see what your design is for your model.

My car is cranking but the other day I tried to crank it and it turned over but would not start. I noticed that it might be the battery, I took it to auto zone and they charged it to 100 percent I put it...


the battery light coming on usually indicates that the alternator is not charging.to check charge rate, check voltage on small terminal at rear of alternator with engine running, should be 13.5 -14v. check at battery if unable to reach rear of alternator.

1991 honda accord will not charge alternator test good


1st check and make sure you have a good ground on the battery. Check the battery. Make sure it passes a load test. It is possible that the battery is not holding a charge. Make sure all alternator connections are connected.

Sounds like a charging system issue. Just because the alternator itself tested fine doesn't mean it's getting power to the car and battery. Charge the battery and start the car (with everything connected normally, including alternator). While car is idling, disconnect the battery (negative post wI'll do). If car dies, there's a problem with the alternator wiring/harness. Once the vehicle is running, the alternator should provide plenty of power. Check voltage at battery (from alternator) and should be around 14V. Check alternator fuse.
Could be the voltage regulator in the alternator going out, which would need a new alternator.

(Battery No Charge Message)


Yep.... the tired old battery may have cooked the alternator. If your lucky , maybe it is just the belt. Could be loose wire , or dirty connection on back of alternator too.
Alternator should not be THAT expensive , and an 85 caddy should be easy to get at alternator.
If a mechanic has quoted you lots of $$$ , check with another mechanic. Stay away from chevy dealership , or any dealership for that matter. They waaaayyyy overcharge. If their book says it is a 2 hour job , thats what you pay for , even if it only took them 20 min.

Charging System issue!


I had a simular problem, and I have worked on cars for 37 years.
In my case it was the ecm. I tested and tested, come to find out, at higher rpm's, (when car is being driven), the ecm caused the voltage regulator to stay in a high charge situation, which burnt up the alternator, changed it, and was fine.
I'm not saying it will work in your case, but you tried everything else.
