Insight 2010 - after...

Insight 2010 - after sitting for two weeks, the original ignition/starter battery was dead. A jump start was attempted, terminals were crossed. After that, no power to anything, like a master fuse had blown. The battery was replaced since it was almost 10 years old. Still no power. Fuses checked, all OK. What do I do/check next?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistently dead! No fluctuation.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Insight yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, myself. I've replaced battery and checked fuses.

What has happened is likely the main fuse, It is a 100 amp fuse. When a short like this occurs at the battery , this is the first fuse to blow, It can be bought at most any parts store. I forget if that fuse is held in place withe 2 small bolts or nuts , that you will have to look close at, but in any case, its located under the cover on the small fuse link box that is on the POS battery cable on top of battery. I have attached 2 picture links to show you location etc, It will be fuse #1 shown in the diagram, Here are the links

That fuse looks intact. Is there apart that is not visible that could be damaged?

That is the main fuse. You can see in the diagram everything it controls to include headlighst which do not work, so yes,, I feel it is bad and looking at it is not confirming

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
