voltage fluctuations?

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Kevin Van Sant, Sep 6, 2006.

  1. I've been noticing what I'm guessing is the result of some kind of
    voltage fluctuation. At first the only symptom of this was when I was
    driving highway speeds at night the lights (headlight and dashboard)
    would kind of flare up a little brighter intermittently. More
    recently I noticed the AC fan doing the same thing. I only noticed
    that while parked with the fan on high.

    Anyone have experience with this before? Ideas?

    the car is a 98 Civic LX AT with only 53,000 miles.

    ELD is the term you need to search for. It has been discussed in the
    last few days. Poke through these TSB's, just for kicks too:

    I just had exactly the same symptoms on our 2003 Accord. In our case
    the dealer replaced the fuse box to replace the embedded Electronic Load
    Detector which had failed. I have no idea if the same thing applies
    to your '98 Civic.

    There is a service bulletin which describes your symptoms and points to
    the voltage regulator. I've sent you a copy by direct email.

  5. I must have missed the discussion. What in the world does the ELD do,
