I've read through the website but still tons to get through. Y'all know what you're talking about. I can't find anything that directly discusses my problem. I'm holding off with my hypothesis for now because I want to see if any of what you guys come up with matches. I was driving home the other night and had trouble getting the car started. Once it did, the "BRAKE" and battery light remained on. Exiting my workplace I had the "ABS" and the power steering light come on (I think "PSM"). Car still worked fine but was a little harder to steer (for obvious reasons). Once up to speed on the highway I lost all lights except the warning lights and the LED running lights I installed. The headlights, radio panel, and entire dashboard went dark. As an aviator, I thought immediately this was some kind of battery issue and didn't dare stop out in the middle of nowhere where I work as the generator/engine was still working. I had my wife meet me on the highway and trip all the traffic lights to green right ahead of me so I could make it home. The car did NOT shut off when I came to a stop finally at home as I expected that it would. All that being said, what do you think the problem is? It is a 2000 manual transmission Insight, recently replaced 12V battery and original IMA that I put on a tender about every 6 months.
