Good evening, my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you this evening.

Does the car/battery die when it is running? If the battery is not charging that means the alternator is either not charging or not receiving a signal to turn it on

it is dieing
my question what else could be wrong other than bad alternator
Mechanic for Acura: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 10 months ago

Okay good to know.

The alternator is turned on when it receives a signal from the engine computer that the vehicle is running and in need of a charge. If the alternator is still good then other options could be a bad computer or faulty wiring, but the majority of the time when this issue arises it is the alternator at fault

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
