    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Welcome! Battery wise recommend a grid charger and dis-charger and should extend the battery life. Hybrid Automotive.com is a good start and have everything cheaper then some other sites. Anymore questions, I'll see what I can help you with, but there are a broad array of people in here with a...

  6. Randomly losing electrical power, car shut off

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    tryingbe is the guy with the know how. He's helped me quite a few times. The computer charges and idles charging depending on rpm and load, if you cut the wire then it will act like a alternator and keep a constant charge.

  8. Randomly losing electrical power, car shut off

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    Well, I'd start with the obvious, Clean battery connections and any wires coming from or to the battery or ground connections. Inspect the ground straps in the engine bay, and all bolts pertaining to. Charge the battery fully, and do a battery load check and make sure the battery is fine. That's...
  9. NEED PART NUMBERS FOR O2 SENSORS-2005 5SPEED WITH AIR

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    I'm a technician myself, owned my own shop for over 10 years, and if you had 3 mechanics look over and couldn't tell u definitively that your cats out, in my opinion they aren't very good. It takes a simple laser temp gun and a helper to check Cats to know for sure if they are bad. But for you...

    I work at an Auto Plus Pep Boys, and Monroe shocks and struts had a recent transformation with materials and companies. They are having some issues with the seals and such. But rememeber, MONROE SHOCKS AND STRUTS HAVE A LIFE-TIME WARRANTY, so take them back and get new ones. I have processed a...
  12. Vibration at shut down

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    More of a convenience, but common problem that they got a code that says the 2nd and 3rd o2 needs changed so figured while I was down there to do it. The NTK's by NGK were only $39 for the second and $66 for the third off Rock Auto, so not bad. The most expensive one is the bank one cause its a...

    HondaInsighter06 Thanks :)(y)
  14. Vibration at shut down

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    It's not terrible... time consuming, not terrible though. The rear bolts are easy. The front bolt interferes with the exhaust, so I had to unhook the exhaust isolators and pry the exhaust out of the way enough to clear the bolt so I could change it. While I was down there, and exhaust...
  15. Vibration at shut down

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I had a vibration kinda like that when I first got it, and it was my lower rear engine mount, kind of a pain to find with a lot of research I did on Ebay, got a refurbished one (they had old mount and pressed in new bushing) and was cheaper then all the others, $62 item # - 264358723582 manual...

    jime Thanks for your time, I just went with Hybrid automotive as you have listed and bought a grid charger, super cheap on there, half the price as Mike's! Thanks! Just couldn't see spending a grand on a charger, thanks for the link! :D

    jime Thanks Ill take a look. Did you post setting or anything for the reconditioning process, Id like to give it a shot. tryingbe This whole post was about temp bypassing battery and how to temporarily. You whole last post was permanent, which was completely off the subject of what I was...
  19. Want to pull IMA batteries out, recondition, and still be able to drive car... possible?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    10-A-SEE ME Do they make lithium batteries for these? Where and what we talking price wise? Mario Tryingbe has a setup looks similar to yours. I don't see a difference, but you both get different results with ima light and such. Yours is out and he states his is on. And do I still need to cut...

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I want to be able to remove the battery pack itself, pull all 20 batteries out, recondition/replace bad ones, and still be able to drive daily back and forth. Possible? I seen some people have bypass boards, but cant find anymore. Plus, I only want to do it for a few days and re-install the IMA...
