Check IMA, check charging system, check engine
I've seen a lot of posts about issues with the IMA light coming on and was hoping to get some help from anyone who has had the same issue.
I bought my 2011 cr-z MT last March. After about 2 months the battery died and I had to have a jump when I was leaving work. After that the Hill start assist and VSA wouldn't work. Everything else was fine and since I didn't like the hill assist feature it did t really worry me.
Last week when I was driving home from work the check engine, check IMA, and check charging system all lit up. No battery power while accelerating, no charge while breaking. I ch caked the fuses and the fuse for IMA2 was blown. Replaced it and everything was fine...for about 12 hours.
I've replaced the fuse twice now but it always breaks after about 20 miles. I'm planning on taking it in to the dealer where I bought it but I'm pretty sure the warranty expired last month-I didn't get he extended because I'm poor. If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears!
