The alternator light comes on when idling. If I step on the accelator, It goes off. Is my alternator going out? Could I put the alternator on my 1987 crx SI on my 1987 crx DX?

This is either a bad belt as in loose or worn. Or internal voltage regulator inside your alt if this fails alternator replacement is required
