  1. Do we really have to scrap her?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    You dont need the battery to drive the car daily :) You will get reduced MPG and power but it will still be perfectly driveable. I've been driving around with the battery disabled for a number of months now with no problem!
  2. Loss of power

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    background charging can feel like you're dragging a loaded trailer sometimes :rolleyes: The clutch switch is essential for that but even with it engaged sometimes the battery will background force charge if the computer thinks its necessary
  3. How to Completely Remove Your IMA Battery

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    eq1, I've felt this limp mode and Balto is absolutely right. And it makes a very big difference in a car where every horsepower makes a difference. The 5500rpm limiter is a SOB when I'm trying to accelerate on an onramp and need to wring out 2nd gear to the max before shifting into 4th (3rd...
  4. Totaled Insight

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    These little cars are a hell of a lot more stout than they look. Honda worked some magic into its aluminum body design. I can personally attest in three separate collisions in Insights that they are extremely rigid.
  5. 1st Gen for big/tall guy?

  9. WTB Battery junction board

    Buy/Sell Insight-Related Items
    I'm looking for a battery junction board from an Insight. I can pay monies or do trades with parts from a 2002 MT Insight I'm parting out. Let me know what you have and how much you want for it. I can do a 'core' exchange as in I take your known good part, and I'll send you my part that I don't...
  10. What did you do to your G1 Insight today?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I've been hemming and hawing a lot about the cars stereo. I repaired an Eclipse CD5444 I pulled out of an Echo a few years ago and today I plopped it into the Insight where an Alpine CDE-125bt or something used to be. Anyway the Eclipse does have better sound to my ear than the Alpine so I think...
  11. Want to make the most comfortable insight possible

  12. Resurrection of a Red 2001 5MT

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I beat mold in my car with hydrogen peroxide, scrubbing, and a blast of ozone from a 10,000mg/hr ozone generator that was sent straight from Shenzhen

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    The car's maintenance since he bought it is impressive, seems like he wanted to keep it for a long time from the work he did. edit: :rolleyes:
  14. Can't Resolve this P1644

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    Is there a quick and dirty test procedure that you know of for the contactor itself? The MDM is known good from the red car so it's some other kind of devil in the system making it throw that code
  15. Can't Resolve this P1644

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    I snagged a blown 7.5 fuse under the dash. Thanks for the recommendations again ! When restarted the car gives p1443 and p1438.

    So these cars didn't come with Honda blue coolant from the factory?
  17. Total noob looking for help on first G1

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    That posting is now gone. Wonder if dude ended up buying it. I bought the red Insight with a lot of problems and a bad IMA battery for $2800 back in 2012 so its interesting now to see cars with far fewer miles and fresh batteries going for about that price. If fuel gets expensive again, they...
  18. Why not vent the top of the IMA pack?

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Would you relocate the MCM and BCM to do this modification?
  19. Old IMA battery for lean burn/auto-stop only?

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    Disclaimer: Don't take IMA advice from a guy with an inoperative IMA system that he can't fix! vv Your battery could probably benefit from a gentle grid charge 'soak' at 350mA, and then at least one proper deep discharge, followed by another gentle soak charge. The logistics of doing such in a...
  20. Can't Resolve this P1644

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    I'm at the point where the junction board is one of the few parts I haven't changed out wholesale. Sadly I don't have one to swap in.
