My 2005 hah showed symptoms like the alternator was failing,

Customer Question
My 2005 hah showed...

My 2005 hah showed symptoms like the alternator was failing, then I find out there is no alternator. the car kind of gradually lost power then stopped altogether

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It just happened for the first time last night

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Honda?

There was a gradual loss of engine power also, maybe a little fluctuation, then it just wouldn't go at all

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything yet, I did try to start it but no luck

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is basically it, just the gradual loss of power then it died

The battery does not charge? what does the battery voltage show when engine is running

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Mechanic for Honda: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

Check to see if fuse 18 has battery voltage supplied to it. If there is battery voltage supplied to the fuse, check the fuse box connections to see if the wire from fuse 18 has voltage. If there is no voltage at the wire coming out of the fuse box, the fuse box is faulty. If there is voltage, the wire is broken.

If all checks good, then alternator is bad

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

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

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
