Question about 2005 Honda Accord
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.

SOURCE: I have replaced my battery
with the car off using a digital multimeter check the voltage output of the battery. it should be around 12.8 volts
turn on your car (if you can) and then check the voltage again it should now be around 14.6-14.8. have someone turn on the heater blower motor to high and look to see if the voltage goes down when started and then climbs back up. it should . after that with the blower still on high turn on the rear defoster and look for the same scenario. slight drop then return to around 14.5 v or higher. If the response is other than described replace the alternator.

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

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.
Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!
