2002 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive 112000 miles
After replacing the alternator my car will not stay running. It will crank, start and run for 2 seconds, then immediately sputter and stall. I disconnected the Crank Position Sensor and it starts and runs (roughly, but well enough to relocate the car). Re-connecting the CkPS resulted in non-running. Having a new CkPS plugged in to the harness but not installed allows the car to run (roughly), but installing it in position reverts the car back to non-running. Note: while removing old alternator, the wire inadvertently sparked, blowing the 80 amp battery fuse (or also something else?) And the car sat for 2 days with battery disconnected. Any ideas?
