2008 Honda Civic IMA Battery Issues
The car usually starts will a low charge (2 to 4 bars) regardless of charge at the end of the previous trip, especially if more than 12-24 hours has passed. After a short time (2 miles or so), the charge indicator will increase several bars to full charge in a few seconds (see it at 6:24). Then, not shown on the video, after another 2 miles the charge indicator will drop back down to 3-4 bars and begin charging again. Originally, the charge seemed to always stay in the 5-7 bar range and I almost never lost power due to having to charge the IMA battery(maybe a few times per hear in mounting driving or something). Now, every trip involves charging the battery nearly half the time. On a trip like this in the past I would get 38-40mpg. Now it is closer to 30. 72K miles This trip was just over 8 minutes on flat roads.
