My Yellow Insight threw an IMA error today. I expected this as the battery was weak when we bought it a few months ago.

I have an OBDII connector to interogate the onboard computer and the full manuals, the error code is as I thought "Battery module deterioration".

The fix is quote "Replace battery module"

I was hoping this would happen within the 8 year/80,000mile guarantee, which it has, so soon have a nice new battery!

Still drives fine but battery is feeble.

MPG should improve quite a bit with a new one. My wife's Insight is about 10mpg better than mine. 90 v 80 lifetime mpg.

Off to the dealers tomorrow.

Good deal! Watch the 12 volt battery voltage in the mean time, my DC/DC quit running on mine shortly after the IMA light and almost got me in a bad situation once.
