2002 Odyssey EXL (146000 miles)
Dash lights (doors open, seatbelt, etc...) intermittently come on (flash) for a couple of seconds when accelerating. This only happens when no accessories are in use (i.e - it does not occur if my A/C or headlights are turned on).

Has anyone had this issue? Does this sound like a battery/alternator problem or a short?

thanks for any input.

Upon further inspection - charging system, doors, and break lights turn on at the same time. Looks like the alternator according to the tsb.

It does not appear to affect the voltage output. Does this problem get worse over time? I can live with lights flashing periodically if nothing else happens.

Good Advice - the battery and alternator test good, but I am going to replace the alternator just in case things get worse. What a strange malfunction.
