2005 Honda Civic Hybrid Q&A

2005 Honda Civic Hybrid Question: below is the problem

Today my wife bought 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid (automatic transmission, mileage=220k) and she found that: 1. The IMA light is on 2. The check engine light is on 3. The battery charger light is on 4. The AC in the car does not work. (I turned it on but no cool air comes out) 5. The Battery on the right side of IMA ( I think that it is the indicator of IMA battery capacity) is TOTALLY empty. 6. Maintenance due light is showing.. Are these problems results of weak battery? can I buy a bettery at Junkyard? -
Answer 1
FIRST ..Bring the VIN # not the car to a honda dealer and ask them to run a VIN status report and give you a copy.You need to have ALL systems scanned , not just the 'check engine' and 'IMA'.DO NOT MESS WITH THE IMA BATTERY UNLESS YOU GET THE FACTORY MANUAL!!!watch out for the orange wires.ALL the problems listed may be as simple (sort of) as putting a NEW properly rated (not an overated ohmygodthisissobigit'lllastforever battery).Go back to my first statement.....VIN status....make sure all updates were done (some may not be free now if time on warranty extensions(by honda) have expired.DON"T do guesswork. A remanufactured IMA battery is between $3&5K.Hope she got the car cheap , or that the fix is cheap.good luck.If you have trouble with the VIN status or have questions about it please reply. -
