2000 Margarita MT
I had an appointment at the local Honda dealer to have my brakes replaced and tires rotated and by the way my IMA light just came on 2 days ago. AFTER doing the brakes and alignment, they told me that despite replacing the IMA battery 5 years ago, my Motor Control Module (MCM) is bad and constant deep cycling has caused that IMA battery to fail. This also means that the 12V battery is not always getting charged and the car will leave me stranded if it isn't fixed. I've had this car for 20+ years, so was ready to lay down another $3000 for another IMA battery but the saddest news is that Honda has discontinued the MCM; there is no fix. Should I find someone to buy my car for parts, or search for a 2000 MCM and a mechanic to install it? Where should I start to do either?
