Hey everybody! My Insight has been doing very well with the grid charger; the IMA light has come on maybe three times in the last 4 years and the grid charger has brought it back to life. But yesterday I had almost a full charge and suddenly the IMA light came on and the bars drained in less than two minutes. No indication that the car was trying to charge when brakes applied.

We charged the battery pack today, but did not do the full process of draining and recharging. The charge is full but there is still no indication of charging when the car is in use. I expect that the charge will drain if driven; so far it is still in the garage. The codes we have gotten indicate P1447 and P1449.

Any suggestions? Investing in a new battery pack seems counter productive.
