    Hi Mike,
    I am purchasing a 06 mt with mima on it. It has two joysticks and the current owner tells me one of the joysticks needs replaced. Do you sell these or have a suggestion as to what and where I should purchase what I need?
    Thanks. Jack

    Hi Mike...I'm a new member...I've owned my 2001 CVT insight for about a year....I believe I'm the 3rd owner...133K....of course the IMA is acting up....Do you know anyone near Cape Cod that might have a new battery that I can pick up. The two companies that are listed...Bumblebee and Revolt are OR and AZ...any place in this area or a contact person that might be of assistance. Thanks for your time...totally enjoy visiting your sites and blogs. Cheerios, Ronnie

    I'm interested in you Grid Charger that you have on 99mpg. How much would it be to get my hands on one of them?

    Hi Mike!
    I am a very new Insight owner (just bought a 2000) and so far I really love the car! I am very mechanically inclined and somewhat electrically inclined and would like to build your Insight grid charger. I have a copy of your drawing and I think it might be the latest revision and was wondering if you could tell me the PN of a few items or where I might buy them?
    The 47 ohm resistor and the 6.8 ohm 5W current indicating LED.
    I bought a Super Brain 989 thinking that I should pull the pack and balance/test the individual cells (which I may still do) but after getting a little better understanding of the Nickel Metal Hydride batteries I think in my case it might be best to go ahead and build a grid charger and use that to balance the individual cells at one time? What do you think???
    Thanks you very much for your time.
    My first 1000 miles I got 64.2MPG then I installed a Rostra cruise control and over the past 300 miles I am now getting 73 MPG!

    Hi Mike, My IMA light has been coming on. 141,00 MT. Unk if new or replaced battery. I pulled the 12v and brought it up to 20 bars 3 times. Now I'm trying to drive it at least 20 miles a day and ensure it's charged up before shutting it down...huge hit on gas mileage I spoke with Better Batter and they said they also sell a grid charger for $200 but only with the better batter. I'm wondering if you are in the works of building more chargers. Randy

    Hi Mike, It has been a while since we last comunicated. You pointed me in the right direction last time, so I hope you can again. I have a 2001 CVT that auto stop will only work when climate control is shut off. Any suggestions?( Ambient temperature is not the factor, same in 55 degree weather as in 20 degree) Thanks, Bud

    Great points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t write on blogs much in fact, this may be my first post, I don’t think the term “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader. Cheap Nike ShoesIt’s not your fault really ,cheap supra shoes but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90of us that enjoy reading the content ..
