So two years ago i replaced the alt. in my car with a carquest one and it was fine until a few weeks ago. I was driving along and the battery light came on.. I took it to knects auto parts and they told me the alt. was bad so i ordered a replacement from autozone as they were the only ones who could get me one the same day. anyway.. two days later the same problem... light comes on for 5-10 seconds then goes out... I took it to the NAPA here in town and they told me the same thing after hooking it up to their machine while it was still in the car... the alt. is bad.. well this just pissed me off so i ordered one from Honda and installed it today.. guess what? same thing; i'll be driving down the road and the light comes on for like ten seconds then goes out. What could it be? Ive tried wiggling wires to see if i could make it come on again but cant.
