Question about 1989 Honda Accord 4 Door

1 Answer

Dies and has trouble starting.

The battery light came on while driving, the car started to show the signs that my batter was dying. Cd player stopped, windows wouldn't roll up or down, clock went out. The engine light came on soon after and while I was driving, if I let of the gas very softly, the car would 'studder' and jump, but would act fine if pressed on the gas. I came to a stop light, while sitting the car just softly died. I checked the battery and there was acid leaking out. I cleaned the acid off and the car started right up. I drove a little ways down the road, came to another stop light and the car died. Had to jump it to get it started. i kept gas going while stopped and the car didn't die. I let the car sit over night and then started it in the morning, and it started right uip. but i'm afraid of driving it. Can anyone help me at all?
(its a 2 door, if that matters.)


Thanks

Set timing mode 1995 cadillac deville


Depending on the trouble codes, it may be the ECM. (computer)
You can have the car scanned for codes or attempt it yourself.
The "set timing mode" is the section of the computer program that you access to change the base timing. It should not show up on the display unless you access it.

Kia rio 02 died while driving down highway


The battery is only use to start the car, once the car is moving the alternator takes over and charges the battery. I sounds like the alternator is bad. You take the alternator to Napa, Auto Zone or Advance auto part and have them check it for you.
