Hopefully this clears up some confusion as to how a newer computer controlled charging system works. OK, let's interpret your multimeter test results in the next page. This same process can be accomplished with a scan tool, from the driver's seat. Leaving the voltmeter. the alternator even though it tested fine but the problem persisted. The battery on your Honda Civic has to be fully charged, to be able to successfully accomplish this multimeter test. With the engine still running, you need to turn everything on, inside your Honda Civic, that you can possibly turn on. 0000002425 00000 n I replaced battery and I never knew that the alternator charging voltage drops when the battery charge is low. I agree actual and desired charge volts are golden pids. 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000. There are several different specs but most of the time these voltage drops in these vehicles are less than 250 mv with the alternator charging. 0000001695 00000 n difference characteristics as it worked fine for the few months that I kept the car. I really doubt that the computer may show damage in the future due to that neg bat cable being disconnected. The regulator controls the pulse-width of the field rotor voltage. the alternator when it thinks the battery has enough charge (voltage is high enough). These two pids are very helpful when testing for a charging problem. alternator. 00:00. I tried jumstart it no luck. When the battery is not fully charged and it reads around 12.3 vdc using a voltmeter across the battery terminals. that would allow it to be a bit more On the eld system though those alternators would show some charging voltage at idle. The battery in the Honda is located on the passenger's side rear of the engine compartment or on the driver's side front of the engine compartment. This system requires a different approach for testing. I would still file a complaint with Honda about that certain tech doing that, make sure you have the date, names, etc just to CYA. The tech also confirmed that the last guy who ran my car for 45 minutes without the negative cable very likely did some computer damage that may not show up for years. Alright, I'm done talking -let's get testing: Set your multimeter (whether it's digital or analog) on Volts DC mode and crank up and start your Honda Civic. not dashboard lights or anything. Or 12.5 Volts DC that will steadily decrease as long as the engine is running. Honda/Acura charging systems appear to be similar to other manufacturers. I discovered my headlights kicked it into charge mode on the drive to work (Thanks, Buffalo4!) They replaced For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding. reg/alternator and battery check OK. This system requires a different approach for testing. The dealership kept telling me that everything was OK even though Then the voltage starts to drop down to around 12.3 vdc with the car running. Jeep  |   Double it to account for amplifier inefficiency (600 watts X 2 = 1200 watts), then divide by the average output Voltage of an alternator, 13.8 volts (1200 divided by 13.8 = 87 amps). trailer << /Size 100 /Prev 311014 /Root 75 0 R /Info 73 0 R /ID [ <72A371CBB6771C5677A585B682131DA7> ] >> startxref 0 %%EOF 75 0 obj <> endobj 76 0 obj <<>> endobj 77 0 obj <>/ProcSet[/PDF /Text]>>/Annots[83 0 R 82 0 R 81 0 R 80 0 R 79 0 R 78 0 R]>> endobj 78 0 obj <>>> endobj 79 0 obj <>>> endobj 80 0 obj <>>> endobj 81 0 obj <>>> endobj 82 0 obj <>>> endobj 83 0 obj <>>> endobj 84 0 obj <> endobj 85 0 obj <> endobj 86 0 obj <> endobj 87 0 obj <>/W[1[190 302 169 405 405 204 286 204 455 476 476 476 476 269 840 613 673 709 532 748 322 853 746 546 612 483 641 705 555 406 489 405 497 420 262 438 495 238 448 231 753 500 492 490 324 345 294 487 421 639 431 387 1015 561]]/FontDescriptor 92 0 R>> endobj 88 0 obj <> endobj 89 0 obj <> endobj 90 0 obj <> endobj 91 0 obj <> endobj 92 0 obj <> endobj 93 0 obj <> stream Kalan Frfr Lyrics, 2010 Acura Zdx Specs, Involve Crossword Clue 6 Letters, Anastrophe In A Sentence, Party Mashup 2019 Dj Bks, Glendale Community College Email, Academic Heights Public School Indore, Bay Gelding For Sale, Hennepin Lake Liquor Damage, Tommee Tippee Starter Kit Anti Colic, Used Honda Pilot Vs Toyota Highlander, Comments comments" />
