Question about Honda Civic
Put the meter in dc volts.in the range of at least 20 volts dc
.. put the red lead in the positive "+" terminal of the battery and the black lead to the negative "-" terminal of the battery.
start the engine and observe the voltage readings
if the alternator is charging fine, the reading should be 13.8 v dc or nearer...
turn on the ac, it should go down to at least 13 volts...
turn the head lights on, and you should have at least 12.5 volts....
if lower than the readings, try to rev the engine at 2000 rpm and observe again the readings,
if still low, you may have a faulty alternator.
i hope i was able to solve ur problem...
pls rate me
