Question about 2005 Honda Accord

1 Answer

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. The lights were on and the power windows worked but the car wont restart . The Serpentine belt appears tight. Battery was replaced 6 months ago. I sprayed out the engine compartment a day ago also. Could the alternator be shot?,or the belt too loose? How much should an alternator replacement cost?

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

hi k
im dave
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

SOURCE: Code error P1361 Honda CIvic LX 2002

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.

ck belt tension, then ck alternator output voltage 13.25 at least

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

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!

Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

Radiator fan always engaged when AC is on


Radiator fan is supposed to blow anytime the A/C is on. Thats how you check to see if a fan is working, cause its supposed to blow anytime the A/C is on , but not neccesarily anytime the engine is running.

Aveo radiator fan FUSE


You never replace a fuse that blows with a higher amp one . That's a good way to set your car on fire ,melting wiring etc.... The fan isn't blowing harder ,drawing to much current . lower resistance in the circuit .

Why is all this happening.????? Because you have electrical problems . Do voltage drop testing on the problem circuits , testing with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter .

Where did you fine this fuse for The radiator fan is blowing to hard and is killing the fuse.So went from a 10 to a 15. My service info states it take's a 30 amp fuse . An it has two cooling fan relay , an a droping resistor . Unless your mixed up on your fan's , Heater blower motor fan ? From reading your post , i'd say you don't know anything about automotive repair . Suggest you take your vehicle to the dealer . We know your vehicle better then anyone else .

AC BLOWING WEAK


If your A/C is blowing weak:

1st: make sure you have the fan up all the way, and you're A/C is on the MAX selection. If it's on Normal A/C it will blow lightly even with the fan up as far as it will go - however - if your heater blows strongly, but he A/C on MAX does not - you may need to replace the blower motor (usually installed on the passenger side, on the rear firewall, or under the dash on the passenger side (near heater core).

Also consider the fact that the engine has to work a little harder to operate the A/C pump, as it is having to cool the air faster (on normal); it is recommended that while driving, to run A/C on MAX as the A/C pump doesn't work as hard to cool the air - and does not use as much gas.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

AC works for awhile, then just blows normal air. Some days I turn on the AC and can go 15 minutes, with nice cool air, then all of the sudden it blows normal air. I can tell when it happens, because the...


1. Probably your AC has air inside
2.You have to use vacuum machine to **** the air out from your AC and then fill up ES-22a or R-22, if you know how to do it, otherwise take to the AC specialist to do it.
