  1. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I just got my oil changed on my 2000 insight with 256k miles. After I picked the car up, the IMA is not working. I have an IMA bypass, because the car doesn’t start with it connected (key issue with a part that isn’t made anymore, can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called). Any...

    Bought a relatively low mileage 01 MT back in June 2020. Only minor regular maintenance required since. Added "full metal jacket" belly pan early on. Recently replaced the problem switches in the dash to make the maintenance minder light work properly again (after being told by dealership it was...

    I'm looking to buy a Know Good IMA Fuse, the small 20 AMP / 30 AMP fuse for the DCDC converter. It's the smaller of the two on the IMA Control Board. HONDA OEM part # is 1C340-PHM-003 but Mine is marked LITTLEFUSE EV4502060H - This number is obsolete. Would like any equivalent that will work...

    So I have an insight without an IMA system working and it says 43.7 mpg and I’m thinking of buying one with everything working but it also says 43.7 mpg. Any idea if it’s the special number for non working IMA?? Or why do they match mpg if one has the IMA system helping.

    I have a 2003 MT Insight that I plan to keep on the road . . . forever. It started throwing codes and engine/IMA lights shortly after I bought it about 10 years ago. Got a lot of help from people on this forum. Brought it to a "hybrid shop," sticks analyzed and ??rebalanced, but ultimately...
  7. Problems and Troubleshooting
    2000 Honda Insight 1.0 Litre I recently rebuilt the battery on my Insight in order to fix an IMA system failure to pass my smog check, however the new battery does not seem to be performing any better than the sticks I replaced. I purchased this vehicle around 2017, it was my first car and the...

    Hello all. I've spent the last one and a half hours on this forum reading up on IMA battery replacements, cells, suppliers and many other battery related articles. Perhaps so much that i am still a little bit dizzy from it! I have the good 'ol IMA issue in my 2006 Honda Civic. A half a year...
  9. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I purchased this car about 8 months ago (2000 model) with a non working IMA. Previous owner already bypassed it to run on gas only. I’ve been trying to get the IMA operable again. Bought a grid charger and done all that stuff and it seemed to bring the batteries back to life. However the IMA...

    Just looking to regain the ability to further diagnose my Insight before I decide whether or not it stays with me. It has been acting up since approx 300 miles after discharge cycling. Not even half a tank of fuel was used before it decided to randomly trip IMA codes, and some days, acts...

    Hello, I purchased my 2000 Insight nearly a year ago, and one of the previous owners replaced the original battery pack with one out of a salvage vehicle. The previous owner gave me the old pack with the car, and it has been sitting in my garage since I brought it home. Is there anyone that...

    I have a 2001 cvt with 142,000. It sat for two days while a heavy storm rolled through, when i went to start it battery and brake stayed lit. I tried resetting the ima and it didn't make a difference. I havent had any IMA battery issues as ive balanced and grid charged it. I drove it with the...
  14. Modifications and Technical Issues
    I was looking around the forum and figured out that since my IMA is toast and my 12v keeps draining, that I am supposed to cut the "green and black" wire to get DC-DC working or something. I also saw cofusing stuff about installing a switch. Please link me to this switch and decribe how to...

    So my hybrid battery died a few months ago but the car kept running, I did some researched and even asked on here and came to the conclusion that the alternator would still function even with the dead battery so I kept driving for a few months and 8000 or so miles. Now all of a sudden the...
  16. Problems and Troubleshooting
    (Car particulars & history posted at end for reference) So after about a year in storage, and a fresh new 12V battery, started up fine (on IMA) with clean (no) DTCs or any other issues, IMA level was down, but recharged nicely. After several days of use & a few dozen miles, persistent MIL &...

    So, every now and again my IMA light comes on (usually after I'm on the highway and using the assist for extended periods of time) and I know I have to get the codes for you guys to be of more help BUT, I have realized I can make the light go away and everything function properly (albeit...

    Hello - I sold my Insight a few months ago (and miss it) and found this in the basement. IMA / IPU / BCM / MCM Wire harness. I originally bought this to use it with an Arduino to bypass my battery, but never needed it. I believe it is from a 2004 or 2005 manual transmission car, not sure if...

    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...
  20. 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...
