civic vti AT / electrical poblem?
« on: May 31, 2017, 09:05:14 AM »
Gurus,
good morning!
I just bought at 99 civic Vti/AT 2 wks ago.. i have already drove it as far as clark without issues, dry weather. But last night, it was wet, the car seems to be okay but when im about 100mts from home it suddenly looses power (it was a 2 hr drive). Its more like loosing electrical charge. Since its AT, i had to "N" then rev, then "D" until i got home. I shut off the engine then gave a few tries, it failed to restart. All the lights are seemingly week, at least what i saw in the dash lights. I rested it for about 1-2 hrs and tried again. It did start like normal.
I thought it was an alternator issue, but if it was, i could no longer be able to restart it. right?

Just to elaborate more, it was a 2 hr drive (Mkti-cavite), wet weather, AC on all the way, stereo on, fogs on. Batt is a 3 wks old Champion MF 1sn.

Whats your thoughts guys?

thanks,
1st time AT user, 1st time honda user..

Did you check the battery condition?

You might also want to replace all the ground wires and have the grounding points re-done.
