It might, have you had the battery/alternator checked to make sure they are working correctly. Also are you sure you have everything plugged in like the sensor that controls the light.

That could be, u could be over charging the Batt, :(, i dunno, but look up the specs between the Civic and Acord, im sure the acord has a bigger better alt then the civic :(

Ya I went to my freinds car today, The Acord stock depending on what year puts out alot more, but He has 1 in his civic, then again he Has a sound system that drains his bat and puts alot of stress on his alt, so he needed a bigger 1 :)

96 and up Civics come with a 75 amp alternator while the accord equivalent come with an 80 amper. And the green plug on the back of it, is it pinned the same way as the Civic? But the difference in amperage would cause the ECU to believe that it's overcharging the battery, which it kinda is. I would swap it out and see, but beware of junk yard parts. it's asking for problems with that kind of part.
