2002 Acura RSX 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
So a couple weeks ago my car would not start, I would jump it and then the car was fine
Couple days later same issue, jumped car it was fine
At this point I turned OFF MY SUB AMP, a week passes and then my SRS light comes on
Couple days after that I take my car to the repair shop where they tell me the SRS light is on due to improper voltage going to it and that my voltage was all over the place in the car and that my ALTERNATOR needed replacing
I replaced it and a couple days later, car wouldn't start, took it to repair shop again and after some testing they said battery is not holding a charge.
The battery is an OPTIMA yellowtop deep cycle and was covered under warranty
Was my alternator never the problem?
Could it be normal to be "all over the place"?
Do you think the shop is trying to cover their mistake?
How can I confirm alternator was bad?
Could the alternator have been all out of whack voltage wise for years?
have the same problem?
