I have been thinking it would be fun to meet with another Gen 1 owner and chew the fat.
I acquired an un-tested core IMA battery off ebay for two hundred bucks probably close to two years ago. Took the thing apart, and then lost interest. Hey, the IMA light wasn't illuminated on our 2003 HCH1 yet. So a couple months ago after the IMA light coming on and off a few times, getting all...
