If it's a 4.2l it is on the left of the vehicle under the power steering pulley. It twists to the right, or clock-wise as you are looking at the engine. Use a 3/8" ratchet handle and possibly an extension.
Good Luck. I'm not sure if you have a v8.

Check your engine oil and break oil weather it is in below low level or full, if it has in low level get an engine oil for your car module and pour it. otherwise go to authorized Hyundai service centre and check for it.

Honda accord 2005 ex battery light turned on right when i turned it on. Can i continue driving it or not

battery lights do turn on with the ignition and go out when the alternator is charging
if it stays on you are running on the battery and that may give you 15 minutes before it stops the engine
do the firstb check and see if the alternator drive belt is fitted and not broken

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing

IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

First my ac fan was not blowing as hard as normal still cooling just not blowing, then two days later my battery warning light came on,10 minutes later while running the electrical system just shut down....

Sounds like the alternator has gone bad. Jump start the car and check the voltage at the battery. You should see around 14 volts if the alternator is working. If you see around 12 the alternator is not charging.

Labor rates and parts pricing various greatly depending on where you are. Your best bet to find the most accurate pricing for your area would be to call some local shops to get some phone quotes.

You can expect anywhere from $300 to $600 to have the alternator replaced at a shop. If you do it yourself you can expect to pay $100 to $275 for the alternator at a parts store.

New battery, partial new alternator but the battery light still comes on at slow speeds?

Usually this type of problem is caused by a loose belt. Sometimes it is an alternator problem, but most of the time a new belt will fix it.

Replacing the alternator

Fig. : Alternator mounting-2.2L engine



(2.2L Engine)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the front of the vehicle, then remove the passenger side tire and wheel assembly for access to the rear of the alternator through the wheel well.
  3. Working through the wheel well, unfasten the alternator brace-to-block bolt, then remove the brace-to-intake nut and the brace-to-engine stud nut.
  4. Unplug the alternator wiring connector, then remove the battery terminal nut and wire.
  5. Carefully release the serpentine belt tension and remove the belt from the alternator pulley. Do not allow the tensioner to snap back into position once the belt is off the pulley.
  6. Loosen the alternator retaining bolts, then support the alternator and remove the fasteners. Remove the alternator from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the alternator in the vehicle and loosely install the retaining bolts.
  2. On 1994-98 models, tighten the top alternator bolt to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) and the bottom bolt to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. On 1999-99 models, tighten the rear bolt to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) and the front bolt to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. On 1994-98 models, install the alternator brace, then tighten the retaining nut(s) and bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
  5. On 1999-99 models, install the alternator brace, tighten the brace-to-alternator and brace-to-intake retainers to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Tighten the brace-to-engine stud nut to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  6. Install the battery terminal wire and tighten the retaining nut, then engage the alternator wiring connector.
  7. Hold the serpentine drive belt tensioner, back off the belt while slipping the belt over the alternator pulley. Gradually lower the tensioner into contact with the belt, then check for proper alignment and tension.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

Fig. : Alternator mounting-4.3L engine


(Except 2.2L Engine)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the air inlet duct assembly, if necessary.
  3. Carefully relieve the serpentine drive belt tension, then remove the belt from the alternator pulley. Do not allow the tensioner to snap back into position once the belt is off the pulley.
  4. Remove the nut retaining the radiator hose brace to the back on the alternator.
  5. If equipped, unfasten the retainers, then remove the brace from the engine and/or the alternator.
  6. Disconnect the battery terminal boot wiring from the back of the alternator, then unplug the regulator wiring connector.
  7. Support the alternator and remove the mounting bolts (usually 2) from either side of the alternator, then remove the alternator from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the alternator in the vehicle and loosely install using the mounting bolts.
  2. If equipped, loosely install the brace to the engine and/or alternator.
  3. Tighten the left or front alternator retaining bolts to 36 ft. lbs. (50 Nm), the right or rear alternator bolt to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm), the brace bolt to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) and/or the brace nut to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm), as applicable.
  4. Connect and secure the alternator wiring.
  5. Carefully relieve the serpentine drive belt tension and position the belt over the alternator pulley, then slowly release the tensioner into position.
  6. If equipped, install the air inlet duct assembly.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.

I hope helps with this. Good luck (remember rated this help).

Yes it could be the alternator, or more specifically your voltage regulator which is part of your alternator. An auto elec should be able to test it
