Honda Accord Euro Alternator
This Honda Accord Euro from 2006 would not start. The vehicle was broken down at the customers house. I inspected the fault firstly by testing the battery, which was at 6volts well below what is needed to run the computers and a far way off starting the vehicle.
With a jump start pack connected the vehicle started. I tested the charging system to find the alternator had failed.
I replaced the alternator with a new OEM standard unit. I avoid the ebay specials out of China as they have a habit of failing long before they should. The quality of some of these unknown branded aftermarket parts are not up to standard, therefore I use known quality brands only. This allows me the confidence to offer 12month/20000km warranty.
After the install and the vehicle is up and running again, I recheck the charging system – It is now charging at 13.9v , Perfect.
All this done at the customers house at Carrara. The advantage of a mobile mechanic over a workshop. No tow truck, no hassles, just the vehicle fixed.
