Ok. Newbie here with a 11 insight. 250k. Runs great. Bought it 2 days ago. Second day I went to start it and the battery was dead. I checked the battery and it is only putting out 10volts/60amps. I replaced the battery with a lawnmower battery in the mean time to get her running until I get a new stock 12volt. The lawnmower battery is producing 12volts at 300amps. Plenty to start the car. My issue is now all my dash lights are on. Check brakes system,traction control, antilock all on. The car still runs fine but will not auto stop at redlights anylonger. What can I do to reset this thing.

Get the new 12 volt battery in there and report back.
I will look for some old threads that might help you out.

Replaced battery left unplugged for 30mins.. still all my lights are on. Car starts and runs fine. Battery pack seems to be working fine. I have no auto shut off at stop and those lights I mentioned

Sure that will teach me about my car and save money.. so helpful
wasn't being a smartass only stating what I'd do in your circumstances,if you've tried to reset everything etc and still no joy ,honda would be the logical next step don't you think?

Actually the next step is to check all the fuses that relate to the abs system. I just found some info online.

Just a update if anyone cares. All hondas abs lights will trip if the battery dies. You either have to take it to honda for reset. Or jump pin 9 and 4 on obd and do a little dance with the brake and key. I found a YouTube video on it.
