  1. Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    Hello, I'm on holiday and the IMA engine and battery light came on. Just after I started the car on a hill after about a 50 m drive. It's a 2010 Honda insight 225000 km. The 12v battery is 2 years old and got tested at the place I went to get a new one, they said it wasn't necessary. I got...

    I wasn’t sure where to post this, but since it came with my G1 I’ll put it here. Does anyone know what this battery came from? It was in the trunk of my 04 when I bought it, obviously it’s not a g1 pack. And does anyone know if it’s worth anything to anyone? It’s in my way… if the sticks are...
  3. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Greetings fellow G1 Owners, I purchased a 2001 CVT Insight earlier this year and it has led me down several rabbit holes trying to keep it running right. After driving it several months on a short commute my IMA light came on along with a CEL. I have pulled the codes and gotten the following...
  4. Modifications and Technical Issues
    Hello. I'm Aaron. I have a 2000 Manual transmission Insight and it's been sitting for about a year. It only has 101k miles on it. The IMA is completely discharged. I just had AAA put in a new 12v battery but it's not recharging because the IMA is discharged. The car does drive but doesn't...
  5. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hi guys, my 2000 Insight has begun having trouble starting. I suspected the 12V battery which wears out regularly but it is less than 2 years old and after refresh charging it, it always has more than 11.8V. In the past I only had problems under 11V—the crank starter tried to move the engine on...
  6. Troubleshooting and Problems
    I've got about 150k miles on my 2010 Insight. Unfortunately the engine oil plug came out while driving recently causing the car's engine to seize :(. I'm swapping out the engine since besides for 1 TPMS sensor that needed to be replaced, everything else about the car was running fine and buying...
  7. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Hi all, I own a 2000 and a 2001 Insight. I bought my 2000 Insight about 5 years ago. I drove it for a few months, then the IMA light came on. I haven't driven it since. I bought the 2001 for parts for the 2000, but I decided to just fix it and have two cars. I only drove the 2001 home and...
  8. Problems and Troubleshooting
    My 12V battery exploded while my 2001 Insight was idling in the driveway. It took something out in my IMA system because now I have no start assist, no regen, nothing. I still have voltage at my grid charger. Any help to determine and fix this would be greatly appreciated. My OBD comes up with...
  9. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hey guys! 💁🏻‍♀️ I’m new to this forum, but man, I sure wish I found it sooner. I’m in need of some insight for my... insight. Lol. My dad bought good ol’ Cherry Bomb (2001 model) 5 years ago, replaced the transmission and the battery with a rebuilt Bubble Bee battery not long after. Well, she’s...
  10. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hi All, working on my car, today I pulled the IMA battery out and decided to test the current voltage before my grid charger arrives. I think I have to replace #20 for sure, it was never a constant value, it jumped from 1.9-3.5 and read as 0 for awhile as well before spiking to 4.5 and then...
  11. Other Honda Hybrids Discussion
    Hello all I'm having issues with my 2007 Honda Civic hybrid 210,000 miles. Alright to start I bought the car a couple weeks ago, probably mid February. When I first went to purchase the car I noticed that the it had a slow start (0-20 mph) and that the Check engine light and IMA light were on...

    looking for a spare battery to rebuild / condition... I'm located in North East Ohio... may be interested in one somewhere near Charleston SC or possibly Cleveland TN
  13. Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    Hello, I am new to hybrid vehicles that's why I am looking for your advice. I am seeing an option to buy 2010 Honda Insight Elegance Edition. It is only 56000 KM driven so I assume it is in very good condition. My question is about how can I check how much battery life of IMA is left? Like...
  14. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I seem to have (what I think is) a fully charged IMA battery (175-179V when I hook up the Prolong charger or discharger) but it's showing as almost empty on the dash. When I start the car it always shows only 1 or 2 bars of (orange) battery...
  15. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I had posted late last fall in another thread I started about the issues I was having between the transmission synchro's and the battery pack. I had gotten the exhaust leak fixed and it has been fine. The car only has ~117,600 miles on it as I was mostly local driving and a telecommuter. I am...
  16. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I'm in the process of a deep discharge charge cycle. I've ran through it once and am on my second discharge. I'm noticing the battery discharging much slower this time which I'm assuming is a good thing as it should be indicative of a higher state of charge. I'm curious about something that...
  17. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    All, I lucked into a complete Insight Gen 1 IMA battery. All I can say about it is that it has been sitting, almost certainly for 2 or 3 years. Voltage was about 3.25 volts before any charging. I have a 250 mA trickle "grid charger", and have begun charging. Steep slope in the first 20...
  18. Troubleshooting and Problems
    Hi, I am at the point my Insight is haunting me in my dreams. We own a 2012 facelift (wife’s car), which recently suffered un unpleasant event: timing chain jumped and messed up the valves, as expected. Instead of trying to get it fixed, I chose to replace the engine with a unit with 23000 km on...
  19. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Approximately four years and one week ago, I replaced my IMA pack with an 8AH pack from Hybrid Revolt. For the first two years or so it was running well but then I started seeing recals. I bought a grid charger then and have used it occasionally. I have not used it since mid-October and last...
  20. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hi, I have a 2001 Honda Insight, with a rebuilt IMA battery (rebuilt about 4 years ago), and would like to describe some issues I've been having in the hope that someone has some ideas on what the problem(s) could be and how to solve them. Thanks for reading! State #1: After a few short...
