  1. Traded Insights, new insight seems like it drives better, but much worse mpg

    MPG Issues
    So I’m perplexed? I drove your car at the event in Ohio. Before we took off for the test drive you said your car would never go into lean burn. You didn’t have the OBDII set to even monitor AFR, so I had you change it before we left for the test drive. We drove down the street to get on the...

  4. 2003 Insight automatic motor shut off feature

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Auto stop will not be disabled by disconnecting the ambient temp sensor behind the bumper. If the A/C system is turned off the the system will still auto stop. If you turn the A/C on to AUTO it will not auto stop. If you turn the front defroster on it will not auto stop. Scott
  5. Side mirror base (black) re-paint

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I have done several sets of these. I did assembly the mirrors completely. I then sand the mirror base to get rid of the old finish that is bad. I then prime the base part. It depends on the type of primer I’m using at the time on other parts, however there are some good quality aerosol can...
  6. easiest way to remove transmission in junkyard

    Honda Insight Lounge
    Take just the transmission out the bottom. If the car has the tool kit with the jack use the jack to support the engine. Once you get the transmission out you can just leave the jack there. Scott
  7. IMA battery for sale

    Buy/Sell Insight-Related Items
    I actually called Bumblebee and was told it was a 6.5 amp hour battery with a one year warranty. So yes the warranty is until 2020. There was also shipping that isn’t indicated on the invoice that has probably been rolled into the labor. Scott
  8. IMA battery for sale

    Buy/Sell Insight-Related Items
    I don’t know how you get a “BeeMax” battery for the price listed on the invoice? There should be a warranty/security tag on the back of the battery where the junction board and the back of the battery case meet. The battery warranty can be void if the tag is broken and the tag should have a...

  10. 2002 insight AC not working

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    When you turn on the A/C do the cooling fans turn on? We did one on Friday, we could trigger everything from the relays manually, however the system would not kick on. Made sure it had the proper amount of Freon, swapped the pressure switch, still didn’t work. Found a rodent damaged wire, not...
  11. 2000 Honda Insight Coolant Temp Sensor

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    It is very possible that the 1164 & 1165 are related to the bad temp sender. When the sender goes bad it causes the ECU to make the engine run rich like at startup first thing in the morning. This can cause this to cycle many times even when the engine is warmed up. There is a procedure to re...

  18. 2001 Insight Cabin Filter Access/Change

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    The lower plastic part of the dash was there in the manufacturing process of the dash, it keeps the dash from flexing. There is no lower part of the dash to remove, you would have to remove the entire dash. To service the cabin air filter you actually have to cut the piece of plastic. It has...
  19. transmission case removal

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    No, I think you are missing 1. There is one on the black metal pipe up on the side. The pipe then comes off with the pan. Once the pan and pipe assembly are off you can get to the 3 bolts that access the small filter and O-rings. Please report back to help others. HTH, Scott
