  1. Does anybody know how to read the current from the HV Batteries?

    Other Honda Hybrids Discussion
    Hello everyone. I have an Honda Civic Hybrid 2008. I want to know how much current is used from the HV batteries when the electric motor is assisting the car at an specific acceleration rate, and compare it with many variables such as speed, time, acceleration and batterie‘s SOC. For that...
  2. Ambient temperature sensor?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I just bought my first Insight. A citrus 2000 with A/C. I've had it a week and a half and 300 miles, and so far, I love it and can't wait to drive it some more. Having said that, the autostop feature is one of my favorites, but through trial and error I find out that autostop is disabled if the...
  3. Yet another O2 sensor question

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    SEE BELOW FOR UPDATED QUESTION I am attempting to correct the P0141 code and have read a bundle of IC posts. Renunergy's post with the GM guide to diagnosing O2 sensor malfunctions is intriguing and I would like to troubleshoot the downstream O2 sensor heater circuit...
  4. DTC Code P1885=Transmission failure?

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    A couple of weeks ago, I made a right turn in my 2001 Honda Insight and accelerated to enter a freeway on-ramp. As I did so, power to the drive wheels ceased and I coasted to a stop on the access road. There was no unusual noise from the transmission. Neither drive nor reverse worked. I had...
  5. DTC P1585, IMA code #30, C.E. code #69

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    After getting these codes (DTC # P1585, along with an IMA flash code of #30 and a Check Engine flash code of #69) on our 2000 Insight I checked the forum for answers but didn't find anything useful. None of the IMA functions were working and both the Check Engine and IMA lights were on, even...
  6. Speedometer Issue

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    So, earlier this summer, about three week ago, my 04 Insight threw a few codes. One of those codes was P0500, or vehicle speed sensor malfunction. I was pretty aware of this issue as evidenced by the big orange "0" where my actual speed should be, and the flashing "D" light. I took my car into a...
  7. Can bad TPMS sensor cause air leak?

    Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    I have a 2010 Insight and the rear passenger-side tire has been losing air. I took it to the dealer and they said the problem is because the TPMS sensor is bad. The problem is that just doesn't make any sense to me. Since when does a sensor have control over air pressure? Can someone...
  8. IMA sticks with thermal sensors

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I'm now reconditioning my IMA pack (2001 G1 Insight), and it happened that: 1. I didn't know about these four sensors and just stripped out their wires 2. All four sticks with them are bad ones, so I need to replace them Does anyone have some guide/photos of how to install them onto new bare...
  9. Park assist rear bumper removal questions

    Modifications and Technical Discussions
    I just bought a 2011 Insight and I'm very happy with it! Big step up from my previous 1994 Mazda. I bought the Comfort model (I think this compares to the LX version) and it has no parking sensors. I'd like to install those and I found ones which do not require any drilling: Look here. Does...
