Question about 1997 Honda Civic

1997 Civic elecrtical problem?

A fewweeks ago, during a bad storm, my car alarm went off in the parking lot. I was able to disable it remotely. When I went to leave, the car woudl not start right away & the alarm had not reset, and my clock & radio had lost their settings. (The car has seemed a little noisy since then). This morning, the same thing happened - car would not start right away, and radio/clock list settings. The car did not start right away, but the alarm sounded even though it was "off". After I go tthe alarm **** up, the car started.

Is this a bettery problem or something else?

Help?

All alarm issues aside, the radio losing its settings would make me go and clean the battery cables.

Where is the Parking Lights+ wire on a 97 Civic


You will need to find out the color code of the park light feed wire from the headlight switch. Then, you should be able to locate the wire behind the drivers side kick panel as it junctions and splits there to feed the front and rear of the car.
