  • 1981 HONDA ACCORD
Hey, my accord runs great, but one day it just died as I was driving it. Ever since the battery light comes on and stays on. I had the alternator tested, its good, i'v tried a few batteries, same thing happens. I can usually drive around the block and then it dies, and it can be started again, but not driven without dying again. I looked at all the fuses and they are all good! I am dumbfounded about what to do. The battery light stays on when im jumping it from another vehicle. Please help me! Thank you

You may end up testing the alternator again. Check the connections very well from the starter to the battery and around the alternator. Look at them well to see if they are corroded, loose, etc.

If you have access to a multimeter AKA Digital voltage meter. Do a continuity test between the battery post terminal on the alternator(the wire on the back that is held on with a nut) and the positive lead of the battery to verfiy that the wire is good. If this wire is damaged, your alternator will not recharge your battery but will test good when you test the alternator.
