2006 Honda Civic Hybrid Problems

Problem with the IMA Light on

The IMA light coming on is usually caused by a battery pack that is no longer charging correctly. Replacing the battery pack will turn off the IMA light.

Harsh Transmission Engagemnet After Engine Auto Stop

A harsh engagement of the automatic transmission may be noted after the engine auto stops. A software update for the powertrain control module (PCM) / constantly variable transmission (CVT) is available which may correct this issue.

Vibration From Steering Wheel When Brakes Are Applied

A vibration may be felt in the steering wheel upon brake application. Our technicians tell us that this condition is generally caused by warped front brake rotors. Replacement or re-machining of the faulty rotors will be necessary to correct this issue.

2006 Honda Civic Hybrid Recalls

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Vehicle May Lose Electrical Power

The voltage converter that sends power from the integrated motor assist (IMA) system to the vehicle's electrical components may fail. This can cause the headlights to turn off, the vehicle to stall, or the engine not to start, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the voltage converter to correct this condition. This recall is expected to begin by March 18, 2011. The Honda recall number is R69.

Electrical Short At Hybrid Battery

On the hybrid battery, a terminal that is covered by a rubber cap located underneath a metal plate behind the back seat may pinch and come in contact with the plate, causing a short. Dealers will install a plastic cover attached to a metal bracket over the rubber cap free of charge to resolve the concern.
