    So I have a very odd issue that I have been trying to diagnose with my 2011 EX. I originally discovered that my A/C compressor clutch was bad. I have since repaired it and it continued to work without issue for about 6 months. Recently it began malfunctioning again and it seemed to be due to...

    Hallo Forum, in our italian small group there's a trend on replacing the stock 12v battery with a smaller, lighter 12Ah "Moto Battery". This is intended as a way to reduce the weight and get better mileage, handling etc. The idea behind is that the IMA is doing almost everything and it waste...

    Hey all, recently had some transmission work done on my 2013 CR-Z. My mechanic let me know the 12v battery was discharging so I replaced it with a new one. Everything seemed fine until I noticed the IMA battery no longer charges when I coast. Instead it charges very slowly (+1 Charge bar) when I...

    First off, this has been done before. My setup was inspired by this thread: https://www.crzforum.com/threads/using-the-cr-z-as-a-backup-generator.7545/#post-98562 We just got some nasty ice storms here in the Hudson Valley, NY, and we've been without power since yesterday. I've wanted to try...

    Couple of days back, check IMA light came on. I have been driving since then and that light has not come on again. I have a road trip planned in Feb and I do not want to get stuck on the road, hence looking for advise. Also I noticed that the battery bars on the top left corner go down to 2...

    Hi - I’m a new CZ owner and finding my way with it. I’m UK based and after jump starting failing to start my flat battery, I bought a new one (as recommended by Halfords). It’s a tiny bit too wide as it has a rim around the base.) I spotted a few posts about people switching battery and trimming...

    Hi, Today my 12v battery got low. It won't start the car. I asked my colleague to help me start my car he put the jumper cables on his side wrong way and when i tried to connect on my side it sparked, corrected the cable to start my car but nothing would come on my car's display. Called a...

    Looking at a 90,000 mile 2012 CR-Z, the battery indicator stayed at 6 out of 8 for a 20 minute drive and the ICE only stops when in stationary. Just double checking this is normal before buying the car, anything helps, thanks!

    Got in the car last night, gave me a check IMA system notification. Soon after, noticed its not stopping when I brake to full stop anymore, equally noticed a bit of a hiccup at times when I was on an incline or performing a rolling stop. Lol, thats when He was healthy. So nothing sticking out...

    Hello, I have a ZF2 Auto transmission. Last month, got some rats in the car and the VSA and ABS lights were on. Got that checked with the dealership and he worked on the damaged wirings. Then he had to reprogramed the ABS module. All went well but after reprogramming, the IMA light is on and...

    Hi guys, I own a 2011 6MT CRZ and I think it still has the original battery. If it does, would buying a newer battery (I have seen a lithium-ion one somewhere too) improve the car performance (as in 0-60)?

    Not entirely sure what's wrong but there seems to be an electrical fault with my CRZ. The car alarm goes off randomly from anything between 5 minutes and 5 hours after locking. I've also discovered that when I lock the car using the key fob the lights do not flash anymore to show it is locked...

    Howdy all. I have a 2011 6MT EX that I purchased 3 years ago with 78k miles and now it's at just over 103k. I have never had a single issue until two weeks ago. After accidentally leaving the cabin light on overnight I had a dead 12V, jumped it and went on with my day and jumped it the next...

    Tomorrow I am test driving a CRZ. 2011 UK model - IMA Sport - Silver - 40,000 miles My main question is in regards to the lifespan of the hybrid battery. I've heard they can be expensive to replace out of warranty. What is the average life of the Li-on battery? Also I would like to add a roof...
