  1. Battery Light - Alternator?

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    UPDATE It was the alternator after shop diagnostics, no battery light as of right now, and running great! I did alot of digging on this awesome forum on my issue but this seems slightly different. Here is a summary: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L 190,000 miles VCM Muzzler installed when i bought it...
  2. Pulsating lights (and others) following alternator replacement

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    Hey Guys - first post, so let me know if I am missing something. I wasn't able to find any other posts that seemed to describe the same issue I've been seeing. 2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L, with around 140k miles. We replaced our alternator 2 months ago, and ever since, our headlights, brake...
  3. Intermittent Charge Light

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I have a 2009 EXL with an unusual problem. I have been through three alternators including the first which was the same make and model and lasted at least 25k miles (All three were 11391 Duralast remans). This started at the tail end of the first one. It eventually stopped working all...

  6. Which alternator should I buy?

    2011 - 2017 Odyssey

  7. Alternator and power steering pump replacement questions

    2005 - 2010 Odyssey
    I’m about to jump into replacing the alternator and ps pump. I’ve looked into removing the serpentine belt but I’m not sure all that goes into that when replacing the alternator and ps pump. Can I loosen the belt from above? What do I need to worry about when putting the serpentine belt back on...
