Many thanks to Peter Perkins for fitting a charger to my 2002, 93,000 miles MT Insight. The dreaded IMA light had come on and the charge indicator was behaving erratically. Following Peter's instructions I discharged the battery completely, the recharged it which made a big difference to...
I have a 2002 insight I am parting that was in a wreck. I also have additional parts from a second car that was deiced.
2 sets of electronics for the cars.
2 hybrid batteries, one set up with one of the revolt charging harnesses.
2 drive trains.
I'm in the northern California SF bay area and I'm looking to buy a used grid charger for around $175-260.
I know Jeff Sloan has 'em for $350. I'm trying to get something a little less expensive.

I love the look and feel of the old Insight, 2000-2005.
A local dealer has a deal on one and this week end and will most likely purchase it.
It has 68,000 miles and a one owner and the dealer says the batteries were replaced recently under a "recall", and they have about a 100,000 mile...
Will the life of the IMA battery be affected by an irregular usage pattern, in the 2nd-gen Insight?
I am thinking of buying an Insight, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea in view of my usage pattern, which is as follows. I will drive a few miles one day, then not use the car for a week or...
