Default Manual IMA Control HCH1 IMAC&C

I have developed manual IMA Control for the HCH1 hybrid.

It's like Mike Dabrowski's MIMA for the insight but much cheaper and simpler to install.

Details and videos over on Insightcentral.

I can't post links here as my messages get sent off to an admin for moderating and never appear on the forum

Lots of videos on my youtube profile "retepsnikrep" "imac&c"

I'm also after a tester to try it on an HAH Accord Hybrid. But i need to see the service manual before I can confirm it might work. Anyone have one in pdf they can send me to peter (at) solarvan.gotadsl.co.uk

Just an update on this. We are now testing the ability of the device to block the forced regen signals that accompany a failing battery. We are also testing the ability to block assist requests so those with weak batteries can spare the battery and drive with assist disabled without causing error codes.

Sadly all the beta tester places have now gone though.

Default New Software V11

You can do quite a bit more to protect the battery and or cycle it a bit to try and improve it.

Here is a summary of the button/unit functions in the V11 software.

* Button/Device Functions. *

We have three buttons and four different lengths of button presses.

<0.5s = Short press for Up/Down Buttons [SP]
<1s = Short press for Cancel Button [SP]

0.5 - 3s = Medium press for Up/Down Buttons [MP]
1 - 3s = Medium press for Cancel Button [MP]

4 - 5s = Long press [LP]

6 - 8.5s = Very Long press [VLP]

Each button has the following functions.

Assist (Right/Up) Button [Red Led]
Short press = Inc Assist Level or Dec Regen level (Assist has 4 steps/clicks) 25,50,75,100%
Medium press = Max Assist
Long press = Toggle Assist Battery Protect Mode. Limits all Assist request to ~12A
Very Long press = Toggle OEM Assist Enable/Disable

Regen (Left/Down) Button [Green Led]
Short press = Inc Regen Level or Dec Assist level (Regen has 5 steps/clicks) 0,25,50,75,100% [Note the first click activates IMA load balance mode.]
Medium press = Max Regen
Long press = Toggle Regen Battery Protect Mode. Limits all Regen request to ~6A
Very Long press = Toggle OEM Regen Enable/Disable

Cancel (Middle) Button
Short press = Cancel any Manual Assist/Regen or Cruise Control Mode
Medium press = Activate Cruise Control Mode. (Target Speed = Speed when Cruise activated) (Flashing Red/Green Led)
Long press = Toggle AutoCancel Assist/Regen <5mph Mode. Default is ON
Very Long press = Toggle IMAC&C Enable/Disable and reset to program defaults

Sounds tricky but it's only four connections behind the glove box then away you go.
