    The IMA light comes on whenever there is a problem typically with the IMA (integrated motor assist) battery for the Hybrid operation. This can be cured by software updates sometimes, but can also be an indication the IMA battery is a problem. If you have never had the IMA battery replaced, it is long past its life expectancy at 9 years. Good luck!
