Im trying to diagnose a problem with the electrical on my Crx. the car runs fine with the headlights off, but once you turn them on the problems start. Symptoms: The clutch pedal sparks when it contacts the retraction spring. The temp gauge goes immedialty to hot The lights throughout the car dim and flicker and often cut off for a sec. What ive tried: I made sure my main grounds were good and they are. Check the white boxes the ground for the headlights, and resanded their contact points on the chassis. Other: I found that if i put my test light on my temp gauge metal casing ( aftermarket mechanical style) It will light also, and it is not supposed to have power at all. I hooked my test probe and im seeing that no matter where on the engine i touch ( metal like the intake mani and stuff) the probe lights up... thats not supposed to happen right? As i said all my problems happen with the headlights on, with em off the car functions flawlessly. Please help me out here, im stuck on this and need an experts help.
