New Honda IMA battery installed
Long time lurker, first time poster...
Just wanted to share about my recent dealer experience for any interested parties, since this was the "big" one. '
My '06 CVT with 91,000mi had a complete loss of IMA assist/regen, with both the IMA light and check engine light coming on. After a couple days on internal combustion I got a P0A7F code read for free at Pep Boys. Got all the info I needed here on the forum and decided to try to get a "Goodwill" discounted Honda pack. Buena Park Honda ran their test and a day later gave me a quote of just about $1,400 out the door (down from $3k list). A bit more than I was hoping, but I just wanted it done... Receipt shows 3yr/36,000mi warranty. No mention of BCM or MCM needing to be replaced(they didn't say, and I didn't ask). I've read that these packs may not be 100% new, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I have low end power again!
Car is mostly stock. Pulled EPS fuse, AutoSpeed type intake, Matiz springs, 185 tires (sorry, but I LOVE them).
