    have an 03 civic lx and it wouldn't hold a charge. Had the battery checked came up bad so I replaced it. Then it started dying while driveing and the battery wasn't charging. Put a volt meter on it and it was only putting out 11v. So I pulled the alt. And had it checked, and it came back ok. Checked the fuses and grounds and everything looked ok. Any ideas

    The white wire held on by the 10mm net may be scorched. I can't remember whether or not there's a fusable link on that wire. Check for continuity b/t the positive battery terminal and the alternator output.
