So I'm driving down the road and my stereo suddenly turns off.......then my speedometer, rpm meter, gas, and engine temp gauge all turn off............then my headlights turn off.........also, I've noticed a whining sounds coming from somewhere under the hood. After reading some posts, it seems like its the alternator. I am going to go and buy that new high output alternator. Is there a way i can get it done for free from Honda? I have a 98 accord coupe with no more waurantee. Anyway, can someone give me DETAILED instructions on how to replace the alternator? My car is stuck in the parking lot right now cause i had to push it about a mile all the way home.
