One way or the other. I am sure your information is correct! however. I have had many occasions where the car would not start right away when i did have this issue. When I had a Multimeter to it. it once read 9.3v after letting the car sit in the on position for 1 minute it read 10.6v and I was able to start the car. If indeed the MCM is in control here how could this phenomenon be explained. I understand the MCM controls the DC-DC converter. However, I am fairly certain the MCM will not turn on till the BCM allows it to. Which is why we have to disconnect the BCM to allow the DC-DC converter to push a constant charge. and as for the 62 amps. That is the number I have from the Honda Hybrid Battery Guide as the max output. This is not to say this is what will put out when in this situation. Only a reference. and to be honest I did not think about reading the current when I had this issue. One more thing. Running a sub, the blower and with dash lights on. I was able to leave my car engine not running during a double feature drive in theater. I lost two lines on the IMA but had no problems starting. I am sure if I did not have the key into the on position my 12v battery would have been dead. 32-38ah battery. I am not attempting to discredit you. Only to inform you of my past experiences. If you have an explanation to this I am all ears. However, I think we are getting a bit off topic here from the original poster. And feel we should start another Thread on this topic and see what we come up with!
