Re: Failed IMA Battery Owners!

I'm back, now at 103k and the ima light is on. I just disconnected the front battery and the light is off. My questions, and I'm sure they've been answered before. How long can I do this? I don't...

Re: Failed IMA Battery Owners!

I'm confused, you're out of warranty but the dealer replaced the battery for free? You want the old battery, why? My IMA light came on at 92k, went off a few hundred miles later, and I'm now at...

Re: whats needed to convert from a Hybrid?

Re: Youtube video of my car going over 100,000 miles on original battery

This is GREAT news! Thanks for the info. Could you tell me when your ima first came on? I baby the hell out of my car and my ima came on at 92k and went back off fast. It was a p1449, I believe. ...

Thank you. 210K on your 03!!! Wow, are you on the original battery? I'll run naked through my neighborhood if I can get to 200k on my original battery.

Re: Failed IMA Battery Owners!

Hey Harold,

No the light it still off, it's been off for 5,000 miles now. I hope it stays off for years and years, but others on here have told me it's a matter of time. The warranty department...

Re: Failed IMA Battery Owners!

Please tell me you were under warranty, my battery went out at 92k and they told me it would be $2400 to replace. That is usually would be $3200.

Re: Bad surging/lunging at slow speeds.

I went into today and had this service done (bulletin 07-049). They flushed the tranny fluid three times and the surging/lunging is gone and fixed for $0. Now, they did tell me I need a rt. axle...

Re: IMA Light Dash Picture, Please Explain

I'm confused, do I need to reset the IMA system even though my IMA is off ? How would I reset it anyway? By rebuild, you mean replace? Sorry for my stupidity.

Re: Bad surging/lunging at slow speeds.

I had the lunging at 38k and an EGR valve replacement did the trick. But now at 95k I'm getting a weird judder from a dead stop accelerating to any speed. Do you think this is the tranny? Do I...

Re: IMA Light Dash Picture, Please Explain

This is great news, I'm now over 95k and the light has been off for about 5k miles. If the battery did recalibrate itself, do you think that it can remain healthy for another 100k? I live in...

Re: Buying a 2003 HCH (need help quick!)

Dude, not only are you buying a salvage car, you're buying a car that has a history of transmission problems and early battery failure (mine went out at 92k). Stay away, far away. 9k for a salvaged...

Re: How long can you drive w/o IMA/Battery?

Can you tell me if your car is an ULEV or SULEV? I don't think the ULEV will get a battery replacement up to 150k in CA, I think it has to be a SULEV.

Re: IMA Light Dash Picture, Please Explain

My car is running just as it was before the light came on, I'm thinking I'm going to wait it out and see how the car does. The battery shows no signs of degrading.

Re: IMA Light Dash Picture, Please Explain

Thanks for the help, I'll check out cleanmpg. My battery did lose a lot of charge quickly today after stopping for some groceries, but it charged back up quickly after driving for a while.

Re: IMA Light Dash Picture, Please Explain

It's the IMA light, it's on like donky kong. Honda looked at it, I need a new battery but the battery is acting like everything is just fine.

IMA Light Dash Picture, Please Explain

Car is on Auto-Stop, I have 56.7 mpg on 455.4 miles and a good deal of gas left, my IMA battery is full. How does the IMA light figure into all of this?

Re: Failed IMA Battery Owners!

It's very strange, the IMA light is off and the car is driving great. I'll keep the board posted.
