what could be causing this
I have a 91 prelude 2.0 si and the battery light came on and i replaced the alternator it didnt want to start at first
but when it did start it fan fine i let it run for a while and the battery light shut off the next day the car died and
wouldnt start again when i got it home i fiddled around with the coil wire leading to the distributor and it started
but the light was back on
how old is ur battery?
Waranty ran out two weeks ago
ur battery has water in it & that could be low or it may jst need replaced. how are ur battery cables? alot of times they can become corroded & interfere w/ working correctly. U can clean off the corrosion w/ some coke jst slowly pour it on the corroded bits. It'll eat through the corrosion, I knw it's sounds strange but it works. try that & we'll go from there =)
Checked corrosion it was clean then replaced battery checked the grounds replaced spark plugs the car started and ran but the charge light was still on and when i shut it off it didnt want to start again but when i messed with the wires to the battery and alternator it started again then i let it run and shut it off again and it wouldnt start
if you keep wiggling the wires, it sounds like a loose connection. get a voltmeter and check the charge of the battery when the car is off and with it running. then check all wiring and connections
I agree w/ Jonathan
