Default Throwing codes

My 97 civic is have some sort of issue. i was driving it th other day when the check engine light turned on then the speedo died. I was tring to get home then all the lights in the car started to pulse, and then the tach dies. I get it home and figure its the alternator. i had a friend check why the engine light was on and it said ELD high or ELD low. i cant rember the code. I have a new alternator and i drove it the day after i get it back and then the spedo dies and now all the lights are looking dim. was the alternator the problem?

Check your ground cables. Sounds like you have some oxidation on the terminals. Do not drive like that. Low power like that can burn out electric motors. Fan blower, Wiper motor, and it can fry your ECU.

problem has been solved. apparently in the wiring harness that goes underneath the intake manifold had rubbed my speed sensor bare and caused all the problems. I got a new altenator any how.
