Re: AC Pressure charge question.

Variable from that? I was under the impression that the compressor clutch it was supposed to be constantly engaged when on low rather then doing a start/stop, but I assume now it does then when in...

Re: AC Pressure charge question.

Alright, I will wait till its about that temp to add more. Probably more importantly when it comes to that temp, I will just add a little, drive some and then check psi later because I hate idling.

AC Pressure charge question.

Alright, so I finally got around to charging the low pressure AC, after some mental turmoil it caused me. I used up one whole can, and the with second I believe I put to much in initially, so I...

Re: 12v Not Charging, New IMA pack, new 12v, new DcDc Converter

I think your right in regards to the 12v being new and having a higher voltage, as I have disconnected the battery on numerous occasions only for it to make no noticable difference like what I had...

Re: 12v Not Charging, New IMA pack, new 12v, new DcDc Converter

Oh yes thats right. Speaking of which I have been meaning to ask you.

When I got a new 12v battery, the IMA system did significantly less recalibrations then with the previous ones, however after...

Re: 12v Not Charging, New IMA pack, new 12v, new DcDc Converter

I'm having this issue too but only when it starts up, it will go away after driving for some time or when I restart the car. So this is the DC to DC converter?

Re: Comfortable tire and brake pad recommendations?

I heard a number of bad things about oem pads with honda along with them being quite expensive, so I decided to go with bosch quietcast, which was quite well rated for braking and longevity. I also...

Comfortable tire and brake pad recommendations?

I know the ecopia's do the best mpg-wise, but whats a runner up that has a better review for comfort? The continental trucontacts or michelin a/s perhaps?

As for pads, any recommendations? They...

Re: AC freezes up in hot weather.

Im not certain about residential usage of coolant, but perhaps it would be more proactive to go for a version of r134a that is for hybrids. Maybe this can?...

Re: AC freezes up in hot weather.

Switching to outer air intake has it last longer, but it will still freeze, usually after a 3 to 5hr drive. I am of course talking about 90 + degrees F weather, usually with high humidity. I will...

AC freezes up in hot weather.

Hello all

I dont remember the specifics unfortunately of how this was diagnosed, so here it is.

In hot weather the AC essentially freezes up after hard usages of about 3 to 5 hours in driving....

Re: 12v battery comes on, needs a compression start to "fix"

Well the battery is at about the time it needs to be replaced anyway. And since it's significantly larger, it should last longer even at a degradation. I only got 280CCA in the current one, and thats...

Re: 12v battery comes on, needs a compression start to "fix"

How exactly are you getting the 51r in there? That definitely seems like the way to go, but it is significantly wider and removing the brackets alone does not seem to be enough, and I can't find any...

Re: 12v battery comes on, needs a compression start to "fix"

Well yes, my hybrid battery is basically failed, but why would that also affect the 12v? I know you can run without the hybrid battery technically. My reason for saying AGM is because you mentioned...

Re: 12v battery comes on, needs a compression start to "fix"

Would an AGM battery be less vulnerable to that? I am having this same issue as the poster, and its probably because my 12V is over 5 years old, but the car still starts up strong regardless. I just...

Re: Annoying long pause before CVT engages (2013)

If its anything like the HCHII, that probably means you need to change the CVT fluid more often or maybe needs it now.

AC and fans goes weakrandomly, only in hot weather.

This has happened every summer for two years now. After about a 2 to 8 hour drive, the AC will literally just stop working randomly or very weakly, and this is always accompanied with the blower fans...

Re: Funny issue, 3 codes come up, but go away after restarting car a few times.

The 12V battery is just fine, I can confirm that much, though the hybrid 140v battery is dying unfortunately.

Funny issue, 3 codes come up, but go away after restarting car a few times.

This usually happens in the morning and its getting more frequent. When I start the car sounds normal, but after about 3 seconds, I hear that "tick" when it goes out of charging, and the codes IMA,...

4 questions

Is there any document showing how to do the valve adjustment? I dont think mine needs it, but it cant hurt to check, and it beats paying 200 again like I did 12miles ago.

How do I get that...

Well been aching to ask this, how do I undo the effects of octane mixing?

I decided not long ago in my search for higher mpg to mix up 87 octane with 91 octane and rather then just running the tank with 87 down to like 10 percent, I ran it to 50 and then filled it to full...
