Good Morning. I am Kevin.

This is a normal Willard battery for a Honda Civic LXI 1.8 V-tech engine. No thermos involved.

Ah, you have posted in the HVAC section, you probably should be in the Automotive. Let me see if I can get a moderator to change that for you so you can get an answer from a qualified Auto Tech.

Good luck with your car.
