Battery light is on and replaced alternator yesterday Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery? Have you tried testing the alternator? I have nothing to test them with and I’m stuck Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? 2008 Honda Accord Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far? I tried but I don’t know what to do Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? I drove with the light on about 20 minutes to get home. I can get to an advanced auto and have it replaced but it’s like 15 minutes away, I don’t know if I’ll make it

No I haven’tNo volt meterShould I try to drive to advance auto 15 minutes away?
Automotive Expert
you can try, dont use anything electrical and you might make it

I can't get the fuse to come outI already drove 20 minutes with the battery light on to get homeShould I still try it?
Automotive Expert
its bolted in you would need tools to get it out you can yes or just take this to a shop to be diagnosed properly

Why would this happen after replacing my alternator yesterday?
Automotive Expert
hard to say without finding the cause, a educated guess would be a shock to the computer system maybe when the battery was connected

Still not sure what you need?

Have a certified mobile mechanic diagnose what's wrong with your car, at your home or office.
