Disconnect the 1988 Century battery. Remove the alternator battery. Disconnect the alternator wiring, then unbolt the alternator. Bolt in the new alternator, then reverse the procedure to finish the installation.

To remove the alternator on 1988 Honda CRX the negative battery must first be disconnected. The belt needs to be loosen and the mounting bolts need to be removed as well. When unmounted the alternator will slide off, and a new unit can be replaced.

It's two bolts. There is a top alternator bolt and an lower adjustment bolt. Loosen both bolts enough to slip off the alternator belt. Remove the bolts, and then slide the alternator down and under the car through the passengerside wheel well. Installation is the reverse of above.

it might be a horn relay switch or a wire or simply check related fuses in the compartment.
