Question : I OWN a 1992 2,000cc EFI automatic Honda Accord.

My problem is that after starting my engine, the red battery indicator lights up.

After driving for about five minutes, the battery indicator light goes off.

This has been going on for more than a week. So far all electrical things are working properly.

My mechanic cannot confirm the problem, but only guess that the alternator has to be replaced, with no guarantee that it will fix the problem.

Should I just change the alternator as recommended? What can be the problem ?

Answer : When the charging light takes some time to go off, it means that there is a problem in the charging system, and more likely it is a defective diode. In the past, it was possible to replace the defective diode or the diode block, which has two or three diodes on each block.

Today, most people replace the whole alternator assembly.

Get an automobile electrician to check it out before you make the decision to replace the alternator.
