@R2D2: I have replaced the bulbs to the OEM. I do not have any additional wiring in the car. It still is the same :(

I forgot to mention one more observation. The voltage variation issue is less frequent when you have the AC on.

apk_net : Few questions

1. Do you see the voltage variations only when the car is idling or when the car is being driven?
2. Do you see the RPM go higher when the AC is turned on?

Typically when the AC is turned on the timing of firing is changed to generate more torque.

Check the following

1. Is your idling very low compared what HASS would set it to ?
2. Check to see if the alternator belt for slippages
3. And as Shom suggested check the rectifier of the alternator.

[i have been using my ANHC last 16+ months now, i do not think this is an serious issue worth spoiling the mood]

I would second Star's observation, opinion & suggestion here.

There is absolutely no need to panic on this as there is no issue at all.The car is performs & as far i know there is no fault, since the car is made like this.

I see the voltage variation when the car is being driven.
There is not a considerable change in RPM when the AC is switched on.

The idling is as per Honda service. No change there
As mentioned earlier, the service engineers at Honda service center have checked the belt and even had replaced the alternator to test. No change in behavior.

Apk,
i would again suggest you that nothing would be wrong with the car. Just keep your self cool about it. I wouldn't suggest further diagnosis, since you may end up with unwanted problems which even the dealer may not be able to help you sort out sometimes.

So please go ahead & enjoy the ANHC.
