Oh, I like that one
May I add a couple of things. If you succeed in getting it started with a jump, that pretty much tells you that you need a good/new 12v battery. But there are other things to think about.
You can probably get a quick indication that the IMA battery has been bypassed by just taking off the two bolts that cover up the IMA battery master switch - right on top of the big box in the rear, under carpet. But you need to verify this with the link samwiche pointed you to. If the IMA is not bypassed then driving will just run the 12v down again!
And, by all means take off the air cleaner box and look at all the ground wires down there.
There is a meet of the Mid-Atlantic Insight Owners Group on May 18, at Gambrill State Park near Frederick, MD. Put it on your calendar. There are always lots of technical folks you can share with. Drop me a PM with your e-mail and I will add you to the notification list. Check the Mid-Atlantic thread in the "socials and events" section near the bottom of the forum page. Hope to see you there.
