Loss of all electrical power. battery and alternator are good
2002 Honda civic Lx
4dr, 5sp manual
Hi guys, first civic and so far its been great until yesterday.
I was driving at night and all of a sudden i lose all electrical power (dash lights, ac, radio, headlights, everything) for sec, a few sec later same thing happens, car did not stall. I pulled over ASAP. as it was parked it kept loosing all electrical power on and off a few times but the car never stalled. After a few minutes of waiting i started driving again and it was fine. Drove it again today, (about 100 miles) went somewhere and when i got out to start the car everything was ok. Then about 2 seconds after i started it, i lost all electrical power and a few seconds later the car stalled. I tried multiple times to start it but no luck. The green key symbol to the left of the dash is blinks despite nothing else working. Everytime a light is supposed to turn on (like opening a door or attempt to turn on headlight) i hear a clicking noise from the right side of the dashboard. Also when i try to start the car i hear the same noise. Its almost as though the electricity makes it to a certain spot and just stops?...When i try to start it absolutely nothing happens except for that click and the stupid green key light is on at times. I know the battery and alternator are good because like i said it started fine and then it died, and if it was the alternator the lights would die as quickly as they did it would take a while. Anybody have any input? I need the car back on the road ASAP, and i would really appreciate any help. THank you
