What's up with my Honda hybrid?

Hi there,

I own a 2012 imported Honda Fit Hybrid. On extended journeys, or if the air conditioning is on for an extended period, the IMA light comes on. It always turns off after the car is turned off and on again and doesn't impact on the car's performance. I bought a cheap Bluetooth scanner but it cannot detect any engine codes. I had a new battery put in but the light still comes on on occasion. Any ideas?

Hi John,

One known issue in those hybrid Fits/Jazzes affects the relay for the air conditioning compressor clutch. It can lead to battery discharging, etc. Might be worth investigating that.
