Electrical Issues in 2012 Honda Civic

Asked by Aug 18, 2019 at 10:23 PM about the 2012 Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi there. My 2012 Honda Civic seems like it runs
on only half power whenever I'm able to start it.
Lately, I'm only able to get it started with a jump.
But when it does start, the a.c. blows low and the
engine dump a low, some warning lights come on,
but then it goes to fill power after about 10
seconds and the warning lights go away. I'm also
sure my left headlight out is related in some way.
I've already changed the lightbulb twice just to
make sure, and checked the headlight fuses and
none of the small fuses are blown. Can anyone
help me with this? Thank you.
