Hya I have jus brought a l reg civic and have noticed that when I put anything on when I am driving the revs drop til it almost cuts out, it neva does cut out but if I have the blowers or the window wipers etc on it seems to happen. Is this a common problem and is there anyway to sort it.
cheers viki

erm ok well maybe a trip to the garage is in order for a specific diagnosis :D
if your feeling technicial and you can get hold of a multi-meter you can check the alternator yourself,

with the car running, u switch the mutlimeter onto volts and put the red probe onto the + side of the battery and the black probe onto the - side, u should see around 13/14 volts reading on the multimeter, anyless and the alternator isnt doing its job :)
