I have disconnected the aux battery and it will not reset the codes. Took it to Autozone and erased all the code but the IMA still stays on with the battery light. The assist gauges do not show anything. they do light up with the key is first turned on.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

I see no one has posted any help with this here.In some cases this can be due to the info you may be looking for may be difficult to obtain or the correct person that can help may not be online.'

This may be due to an internal electrical fault with the battery itself.It may have a short or damage to it to where the rebuild did not work to repair it and it may need to be replaced.This will need to be tested further to see if this is the cause of it needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

the battery is good. It has 153 volt out of 156 volt. there is a negative contactor in the battery module that is not picking up and not allowing the voltage at the High voltage terminal. Not sure what controls that contactor and why the electrical system is not seeing the battery. Need in depth help
Mechanic for Honda: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

I apologize for the delay as I had to leave in a hurry yesterday and couldn't get back here until now.

Are there any issues with wiring or connection at the battery or leading to it?Has this been checked?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
