Electrical problem 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 120000 milesI already got a new battery and alternator installed plus a new Electronic Load Detector (ELD) but the battery light stills stays on. Everything is good and charging, its just that light wont turn off. Can someone point me out in the right direction before I tear up the wiring from the alternator to the fuse panel under the dash, to the computer and finally to the indicator light in the dashboard? Thanks in advance.

There are some wiring connections that need to be confirmed. Here is a guide to help you do some testing along with a alternator wiring diagrams so help you see how the system is connected. https://www.dearteassociazione.org/articles/how-to-check-wiringThere is also three fuses that run the systems as well.https://www.dearteassociazione.org/articles/how-to-check-a-car-fuseCheck out the diagrams (Below)Please let us know what you find.

Engine Performance problem2002 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 150000 milesMy battery light is flashing on my car. What does this mean?
You need to go to a well known auto part store such as O"Reilly Auto Parts or AutoZone and have your battery and alternator tested for free. That is usually an indication that either your battery or alternator is failing.
You need to have your charging system checked out could be the alternator is on its way out-causing the light to come On.

Electrical problem2002 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 123000 milesJust to lay the groundwork, I have put 3 alternators in this car, 2 of them in the last year. The first one was done by a garage, I did the other 2 myself. After the first one, I noticed that while driving my battery light would occasionaly flicker and would stop flickering once I turned my headlights on. This continued until I replace the alternator after it and my battery went bad. The next time I replaced the alternator and batter, no flickering, but the set-up only lasted me about 9 months before I had the same problem, drained battery. I have now put a new battery in again as well as a new alternator. The alternator I just replaced tested fine, but the technician told me the issue I described (Car dying while driving) was indicitive of a alternator issue. I am getting tired of replacing batteries/alternators and am wondering what the underlying cause of this might be.I do have a dead power window on the drivers side, which I read, if shorted, may be slowly draining off my battery, however, this seems unlikely to me. I did pull the fuse, but the battery died prior to putting in this new Battery/Alternator.Not sure what else I can do here, new battery cables? In between the second alternator and this one, I had service done at Honda to replace a cracked motor mount and control arm bushing. I didn"t mention this issue, as I thougt it to be resolved, but their diagnostic didn"t come up with anything irregular.
