    I recently got a 2011 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5V6 with 100k miles. Right out the gate I had the car serviced and I did a timing belt service as I don't think the previous owner had done it. From day one, the car had a very small oil leak, and it would leave a drop or two on the floor every evening...

    Hi, I would like some advice before I go to a mechanic. I have a 2013 Accord EX with manual transmission. For some background information, I replaced the headunit with a Dasaita 10.2" Android headunit back in Jan 2020 and it has been working like a charm. Needed to give this background for...

    '07 V6, 97K. Way back when, I installed a digital voltage meter where the ash tray (or whatever) is located. While driving around a couple days ago I noticed that it would drop from 14v to 12.5. If I turn the headlights on, it jumps back to 14.3 or so. alternator is spinning fine, no noise...

    Just a quick write up on a recent problem with my 2005 EX-L 4-cyl I suffered. Friday night I was going to a friend's house for dinner and my battery light came on out of the blue while I was driving. When I came to an intersection the car died. It restarted and I proceeded to my destination...

    2013 Honda Accord EX-L, 4 cylinder, CVT transmission, also includes navigation. I recently went to AutoZone to have my battery and alternator tested. They hooked up the test tool and said that the battery was good, starter was good, but the alternator is bad because the voltage regulator test...

    49k miles, this car has been so obnoxious this past three months. >_> Latest issue: Girlfriends battery kept dying, after a few jumps we determined the 6 year old battery needed to be replaced. Got a charging system test again after the new battery was installed, and the autoparts store...

    Hey everyone, So I have a 2015 Accord Sport Automatic transmission and about 105,000 km (65k miles) ever since I've had it I heard this whining noise it makes when reving high or during acceleration. I drove a same year accord which didn't make that noise so it got me thinking if my alternators...

    Looking for some help here. I was driving my car and my dash lights, first the seat belt light, then all right side lights, then finally the battery light turned on. A little while later I lost power to my radio and then all gauges. Finally the lost power and then would start without a jump. I...

    Hey guys, Long-time Accord owner here, but posting on behalf of a friend. About 5 months ago, she went to start her car, and after pushing the start button a few times with no crank, it eventually died. No dash lights, nothing. Car was jumped, a new battery was bought, and it worked fine up...

    Got a whine on cold start last night. After 2-3 minutes of driving it didn't go away, so it's not that "normal" PS whine. Also saw that my voltmeter was reading low, 13.6-13.7 instead of the usual 14.0-13.9 With a 3/8" extension as a stethoscope, the whine comes from the alternator. I noticed...

    So, I have a 2013 Accord Sport 6mt 2.4 and noticed that there are two different models (CVT/MT) for the alternator. I just wanted to inform everyone that you can put a CVT Alternator on a manual car, but not vice versa. The Manual Alternator is rated at 110 amps and the CVT alternator is rated...

    Hi all, this is a strange one! My car drives normal for a while and then all of the sudden the radio acts strange, cutting out, sound like static. This is the first indication that there is a power problem. Next the car downshifts roughly and hard then back up again right away and the red...

    '01 EX V6. Alternator is a reman Delphi unit I bought from a dealer for $$$. It has about 40k miles on the alternator. I had the car parked for about 6 months or so. I have had a few other issues I've been working through since firing it back up (IACV and power steering hardline). Now time...

    Hey guys, I'm new to forum. I've searched everywhere for info on this topic and can't find anything. Sorry if I missed it somewhere on the forum. I am curious if the radiator need to be removed to get alternator out? I just took a quick look at it and its pretty tight in there. Didn't really...

    I have an 04 LX sedan MT, 100,000 miles. My alternator recently failed, I understand this will happen, however I'd like to make sure it's not due to my sound system and if so, what can I do about it? I have an aftermarket deck (JVC KD-A925BT) 2 Polk audio door speakers a Pioneer GM-5000t 760w...
