Hi honda_man18,

You need to check the charging rate at both alternator and battery to see if the alternator is providing the correct charge and if the battery is getting the charge. A bad wire connection could cause the problem.

Regarding the dash lights, with ignition ON, are all dash lights showing and do they flicker or disappears when you try to crank?
