    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    We do care but are frustrated with the site owners because our already long list of requests for changes has been largely ignored so far. This can be added to the list but don't hold your breath for a change.
  2. OBDIIC&C Gauge Volume 2

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Both could or should work, or could be made too. I haven't looked at or used that code/option for years so you can try it, if it doesn't work we would then have to look at the code to find out why.
  3. Code reader App for OBD-II?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    It depends what you want to read? If you only want limited mandated generic OBDII engine stuff then apps like the above and torq etc will do. However if you want Honda deeper diagnostic info and IMA codes and subcodes then you need something better.
  4. LTO "Lithium" battery conversion thread

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Terminals was easier for me on the BCM Interceptor as I am always fiddling around with them. The BCM fooler voltage tap connections are designed for wires. So pitch was not relevant to me. Re Fooler connections have a look at the bottom of the board. If you don't use J13 for the battery +...

  6. hch2 newbie voltage problems & fault codes

    Other Honda Hybrids Discussion
    If you can come up with a decent IMA pack from your tinkering and spare packs, then along with a new 12V battery most of those codes will probably go away when it's all installed. My advice would be. If you have spare HCH2 IMA packs then cycle them on the bench without disassembly several...
  7. Turbocharged Civic Hybrid

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    With a spoofer device based on my HCH1 IMAC&C control you could probably retain the IMA system.
  8. Lithium replacement with A123 ANR26650 modules

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    We knew that ;)
  9. Lithium replacement with A123 ANR26650 modules

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    LOL It took several IC geniuses over a day to wire up Tims car. OK we could have done it quicker if we had prepared more and had everything.
  10. Starts w/o IMA - then with IMA, does not charge. P1570, P1446, 58 (low charge code).

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    This is your problem. You have old/dying cells or sticks with very high self discharge that do not like sitting. So every time you go back to the car the IMA is hopelessly out of balance. I suggest build/buy a charger/discharger and do some proper very low IMA pack voltage cycling. Charge it...
  11. GTS8650 LTO Conversion

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I'll think about this, we may well need to revisit the resistors with some nice new 1% tolerance types. You seem to be only just in the allowable P1576 voltage differential zone so something is a bit wonky. They should be closer together..
  12. GTS8650 LTO Conversion

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Yes but what did you set it too to cause that?
  13. GTS8650 LTO Conversion

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Please post what the Bvo & Mdv voltages read when you change it..
  14. Ima battery lethal voltage

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    The BCM is highly unlikely to be bad. So forget that for now. Your 12v battery is struggling and your earth leads are probably bad. Read up on here about all that. Make yourself a simple IMA battery charger and 60w light bulb discharger. (Research on here) Cycle the IMA pack 2 times properly...
  15. Autostop problem!!!

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    The symptoms are def indicative of a blown under dash IMA fuse or you have put the fuse you pulled back in the wrong place ;) Pull the cubby hole out and using the diagram on the back and the workshop manual make sure you have them in the right places. Check each IMA related fuse with a meter...
  16. The BCM Replacer Project

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    BCM Replacer Generic Firmware update. 190917. This update is for all users.. The attached firmware file must be renamed .hex, it is not a pdf! The user manual will be updated when we/I get time. The configuration defaults however are for a (5 module 10 tap Nimh setup) Adjust all the...
  17. Honda Fit LTO BCM Boards

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I must have got confused when starting the other thread and didn't realise/know about this one. Please move all discussion to the other thread now though as it has more updates, and we don't seem to have a merge thread moderator function anymore :(...
  18. GTS8650 LTO Conversion

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    Interesting. Bvo and Mdv are too far apart... I need to check some stuff. Please go into BCM Replacer menu 1 and note the value shown for "4 Voltage Hack 0-100% " Change it up or down by 1 unit and see if the Bvo voltage changes. If it does try and get it nearer to what Mdv is showing...
  19. P1449 78 advice

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    Have you removed them all from the case? You def need to do that to check for electrolyte leaks. Accurately check the lengths of all the sticks as well. Discard any that are more than a mm or so longer than the orange ones or show signs of heat shrink stretch or expansion. IMO You would be a...
  20. Ima issues

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    First we need the IMA codes.. Blinked out properly using the procedures on here. Then we can advise. Sadly if you have bought unknown sticks from Alibaba you might be in for a rough time. :(
