This problem started about a week ago and progressed very fast. I was driving home (car had been running about 10 mins @ approx 50mph) I started up a large hill and it almost died. I kept patting the gas. Didn't seem to help completely bug kept it running til I found a spot in the pedal that it smoothed out. But if u pressed any harder or any less it would almost die again. Then just a few days later I left it running for maybe 15 mins bc of the cold temps, and started to pull off, that's when the dash lights, radio, radio lights, headlights all start to flickers. Then the engine starts to stumble, gauges then drop to 0, and finally everything dies. I try to restart and its like the battery was dead(the battery was replaced with an interstate about 3 weeks ago and alternator tested good at that time). Upon jump starting the car I noticed the CEL, along with ABS light, and battery light. Disconnect jumper cables and a few seconds later it dies again. If the disconnect the alternator or ig ACG fuse then it seems to do a lot better(at least runs). I checked the DTC thru my scanner and live feed on my computer. I have never seen such a list of stuff I've never even heard of and I been working on Honda's for 10+ yrs. Codes like C1703,C0001, C01<D,B2TAE,ROR. And the more common codes:P1157,P0340,P0141,P0498. The car has never had a CEL on for more than a few days b4 a problem was fixed. I've owned the car for 7 years and never had any issues until now. What on earth could be the result of such chaos with my car? What should I check or look for? PLEASE HELP!!!
