    @*sean* on this website has a joystick for his shifter, I think he has wired the buttons up to some things. I do want to mention, the method shown above, I had to reposition that mounting plate, but in its current location it has been FANTASTIC. I just hold the shifter a little further left...
  2. How to power an Arduino Pro Mini in the IMA compartment?

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Okay I'm someone who has tried to install I want to say 6 or 7 Pro Minis or clones thereof into various Insights in the IMA bay... the best advice I have is don't do it. Go with an Arduino with an onboard 12v --> 5v converter such as an Uno. Buck converters off of Ebay are not the highest...

    If a woman's only worth is her appearance, and the whole society acts that way, it's no wonder most women spend lots of money on their appearances!! Growing up and being told that's the only thing that matters really limits ones interests. Maybe the average woman would be way more interesting...

    I built a pretty elaborate lightbulb discharger with two 50w halogen bulbs and a 300w halogen bulb. What I would normally do was Grid charge pack approx 24 hours Use 300 W bulb to take it down to ~160 volts Use 50 W bulb down to ~100 volts Use 2 50W bulbs in series (now similar to a 25W bulb)...

    I have 2 IMA batteries in question. A: One of mine is sitting on a shelf, been down there about a week, I grid charged it and was about to do the discharge step down procedure but one of my lightbulbs died shortly after beginning and I hadn't had a chance to get new bulbs yet. (I've used it a...
  7. CALPOD clutch switch plus indicator light

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Okay then the issue with your switch is the LED must have a resistor that is too high. Ideally you want a resistor of less than 80 ohms for the LED.

    IDK, if you're just trying to improve your appeal with women why don't you just spend money on very nice shoes, work on your posture, and practice giving good eye contact? Cars -- if you still want economy but a car that looks sharp: 2018+ Accord of any type Generation 3 Insight Don't care...
  12. stick, IMA battery reconditioning, testing

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I have an IMA battery sitting on a shelf in the basement. It's probably not in as bad of shape as most batteries. I have lots of resistors. Are you suggesting it may be helpful it I take 5 400ohm resistors and short half the taps for a certain length of time, and then switch them to short the...
  13. Atheos LTO Conversion

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I saw the fuselinks on page 1, what are they rated for? And these are just going between the modules right? And can I ask are there any other fuses you've added to the setup beyond what was on the OEM junction board?
  14. Atheos LTO Conversion

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Yeah it looks like its time for me to do this. I've been reading other LTO threads and after talking to Atheos at IF 2019 I think this way looks like what I'll try.
  15. Restoring 435k miles 2002 Insight

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Bypass the IMA and see if you can at least get it running on the 12v battery only to begin with. I would take the IMA battery out of the car and run it through a charge/discharge procedure, but some more knowledgeable guys might weigh in with better advice on evaluating and trying to...
