    My gf's 02 CRV sat for 3 weeks, and when she started it up yesterday the ABS/SRS/Batt/Brake lights would all flash intermittently. She started it and drove it twice yesterday.
    This morning she tried to start it and it wouldn't start
    It's raining, so I've yet to take a look under the hood, but anyone have ideas as to what the problem could be?
    Sounds to me like a busted alternator (rectifier/regulator), but I don't want to buy a new one until I'm reasonably sure

    If you suspect alternator take it to autozone/orielly, they can check them if you don't have a battery/alternator tester

    Sounds like an alternator...I had an older Civic that did the same thing when the alt. died...just jump it and check the voltage (with a few accesories on) should be below about 13.9

    If you can jump it, jump it and take it to an Auto parts store (Auto Zone, Advanced Auto) and have them user their machine to test it. Could be the alternator or battery, but sounds more like alternator. Good luck.
