You are just learning. Honda designers had to find something that would even fit in that little bitty space. Many auto makers use other brand's products for different reasons; Size, performance,life expectancy. TV and radios are now throw away. - buy another. Cars may be that way one day.
1.5 hrs.about $100
around 14-14.5 volts
You will have to use an Easy Out to remove the old broken bolt.
Autozone says it's an 80 amp alternator. I don't know if this is the max it should put out or the average. I'm guessing the max.
My advice is to charge the battery with a battery charger before starting the engine. You will be putting a heavy load on the alternator if you allow it to charge a dead battery. This could damage the alternator.
Have you drove the car around? Sometimes it takes the alt. awhile to "kick" in. Say around the block twice?
The most likely cause is the voltage regulator in the alternator. Modern vehicle voltage regulators aren't serviced separately, so you would just replace the alternator. That much voltage can boil the battery. Typical alternator output should be around 14.5 volts.
It SHOULD put out between 12 and 14. If you're getting 18 it means your voltage regulator is fried. Less than 14 and the alternator itself is cooked. Either one requires a trip to the auto electric shop to fix.
Loosen the upper and lower alternator mounting bolts. Turn the adjustment bolt on the lower left-hand side of the alternator. You should only be able to bend the belt 90 degrees at its longest run, in the middle. When done adjusting, tighten the upper and lower alternator mounting bolts.
There are a lot of issues one should look for before buying a 94 Honda Accord because no company is producing this kind of product any longer. Therefore, checking the engine is one of the most important issues.
before you do anything with the alternator, make sure to unplug the battery. Then unplug the cables going into the alternator. There should be two. For the belt there is an engine part called a pulley - lift the pulley upwards to loosen the belt and take it off the alternator. Next you can unscrew the bolts attaching the alternator and take it out.
It should put of 13.5 to 15.5 volts. The alternator is an 80 amp alternator.
Take at least 5 days if you've been on it for awhile.
A starter/alternator repair shop should be able to get an external regulator that can be installed on the rear of the alternator.A starter/alternator repair shop should be able to get an external regulator that can be installed on the rear of the alternator.
IT SHOULD BE UNDERNEATH THE CAR BEFORE THE MUFFLER(ABOUT THE CENTER OF THE CAR) JOSE
Yes, they should be interchangeable.
Yes, it should.
To change the alternator in the truck, first disconnect the battery and then disconnect a plug that the alternator has on the right top of the alternator. Then there is a red cover that has a bolt and then unscrew that and then there are two more larger bolt, one on top and one on the bottom and then it should come out. But before you do all that take off the belt. Thank you

First, remove the negative battery cable. Then remove the wires off of the alternator then the bolts that hold it on and then remove the alternator. The schematic for the serpentine belt should be on the fan shroud. If not, draw one before removing it. Don't rely on memory.
there should be two major bolts to the alternator one to losse'n up the belts and the other to release the alternator to the mount. loosen the belts first and then remove the belts.. after this it should be easy to replace the alternator
Yes, they should fit.
About $370 in Minnesota, with a new alternator.
The battery light is for low alternator output voltage. Try testing the alternator output using a miltimeter and if its less than 13 volts your alternator isn't putting out what it should. If it has low output check the belt tension and all wire connections before replacing alternator
usualy if the alternator is not defective then its the battery. you should start by cleaning the battery post. then you could check the terminal wire that runs from the battery post to the alternator. if thats not it you should check the ground on the alternator.
