It could be that you bought a bad alternator. There are a lot of companies that are rebuilding them that don’t do a consistently good job. But if you bought your alternator from Honda it should be OK. The alternator on your car and on most cars made after 2000 is controlled by the engine computer so problems in the charging system could be originating there or anywhere in between. Because of this, repairing a charging system problem should include a computer scan for trouble codes. You can have this done at your convenience by contacting Your Mechanic. They will send a technician to your home or office to check out your car’s charging problem and let you know what it will take to solve it.
