Here is how to disable Assist/Regen when you don't need it, such as when you are trying so keep from depleting the battery charge on long hills, or when you don't want background charging, or when you are going downhill and don't want to regen.

Take the 2 wires from the clutch pedal, run them thru a toggle switch and you're done, now anytime you don't want to use assist or regen, just flip the switch and IMA is disabled. :idea:

Hi, I just installed the clutch switch as described in this thread on my new 2006. It does disable regen, but unfortunately not assist. Maybe the software or hardware on 2006 model year cars is different. Any suggestions for an alternate to disable assist? I live on top of a steep hill and would really like to be able to turn it off.
