Asked by Jul 13, 2016 at 08:10 PM about the 1998 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had many problems at first. I've replace the alternator, the fuse box, the
speed sensor, the O2 sensors, and even the gas cap.  Now the battery light
stays on but is hard to see because it's very dim. Could it still be the
alternator ??

It could be just a faulty indicator bulb.
