Selling my 1st Gen insight
Excellent condition, but a very weak high voltage battery. I bought it 6 months ago as a fun extra car; it was a one owner Seattle car before me. I got about 4 months of trouble free ima driving before the ima light came on.

I did the following this summer:

New indexed spark plugs
Engine oil and filter change
Air filter changed
New oem Honda transmission fluid
A/C recharge
Daewoo matiz rear springs, 1/4 turn cut for stock ride height
Gazmatic rear shocks
New 12v battery
New cabin air filter
New rear engine mount
Rebuilt oem radio
Cleaned EGR plate
Replaced ground straps
Installed Mechatronics 2.5 amp hybrid battery cooling fan
Installed Maxx volts el1 grid charger

It seems that it needs a new high voltage battery, and this is what broke me. I’m moving soon and don’t want to replace it. I like the car, and it’s in excellent shape overall. I’ve averaged around 55mpg in mixed driving without trying since I’ve had it. Everything on it works. I have two keys and one fob.

what is the little red light atop the steering wheel trim? I have one also on one of my G1s but haven't a clue what it's for.

It’s for the alarm I believe; and there should be a little black button on the left side of the steering column that I think disables it temporarily

Very curious Ensight. I have two y2k MT cars. one has the light and button the other doesn't. Since these cars came with few if any options might it be something else??

Sounds like an aftermarket alarm.

Or could be a light for a clutch switch….
Not sure where the switch would be… check around under dash.

I think you’re correct Willie. Maybe Scott will comment - as he no doubt knows the details.
