ok i am having one last problem and it is getting on my last nerve. ok finally got my civic running and now it is not holding the charge to my battery, i took the battery to sears and they checked it out and they said it is ok to use, took the alt to the local shop and they put it on there machine and it was reading 13.9 is that normal? and is that good enough to run the car because when i put the volt meter on the battery it was saying 12.65 when it should be at 14 right? could it be my wiring harness is just shot(at the shop they chopped it up pretty badly) should i get a new harness and call it aday? let me know i want to be driving my civic no later then may 15th please help me out!!
