Well... I made a decision that uninstalling my system was out of the question. So I decided to be as informed as possible before bringing the car into Honda. I wanted to know how many amps the system draws and compare it to the allowable from the battery. When I called, the national Honda information had no idea how many amps were officially allowable.
I called the manufacturers and determined that my receiver required minimal amps. The amplifier has a curcuit breaker that trips at 30 amps. This didn't tell me what was actually being drawn.
So I brought the car to AutoZone and had them hook up the car to the battery meter. With the car not running I turned on the stereo at high volume to read the draw. I then turned on the A/C and the headlights. The total draw was 20 amps. However, when I first turned on the head lights it spiked up to 31 and then back to 20. I can't recall, but I think the lights were about 15 amps, leaving the stereo to be only 5 amps.
I brought the car into Honda and they immediately called me back and said I had a bad computer and that they would replace it. I asked what could have caused it and they said perhaps it was bad from the factory. I'm excited that everything is covered under warantee and I should have my car back soon.
My question now is, is it likely the stereo system could have caused the problem? I certainly don't want the computer to go bad again and have Honda look for other answers.
