I replaced the ima battery yesterday with a new 8.5 amp

Customer Question
I replaced the ima...

I replaced the ima battery yesterday with a new 8.5 amp battery. the car ran fine for about an 2 hours then ima light, the check engine light came on and then the red battery light started going on and off as I was driving home. the stereo began to not work and the car stalled once getting home. I read the OBDII code and it says p1448

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

The check engine light jsut stays on. I think the hybrid ECM is bad but I cant tell if it is that or the DC converter that supplies the power to the front battery. I jst replaced the front battery about a month and a half ago

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2007

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

I am fixing it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have charged the front battery for about 4 hours. and I have started the car and un connected the negative front battery to see if it would run and it did

Ok so I was able to replicate the problem again last night. It took about an hour of stop and go type driving without the brights or heater on to get the check engine light, the ima light and the red battery light to come on. It seems like it is defiently something to do with heating of the battery control unit. I dont here the IMA fans kick on at anytime though. I was able to drive home fine with no loss of power to the engine but when I got home the 12 v battery red 12.6 volts instead of the 14 that it had earlier. So on my way home I feel like the IMA battery stopped charging the front 12v battery. the battery gauge light was all the way to the top but I never had any IMA assist on the way home after the red light came on.

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.

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
