What is the IMA system?
IMA is Honda’s name for the hybrid gasoline/electric system employed in the Insight. The IMA system incorporates the electric motor/generator, the battery pack, and a lot of control circuitry that controls when power is supplied to or taken from the electric motor, controls charging of the high-voltage battery pack, and converts the electricity from one form to another.
- My IMA system is an older model, and a couple of cylinders move slowly even though I open the flow controls all the way. Do I need new flow controls?
- I have an AM 43 IMA system with a horizontal cable head on it. Can I upgrade it to an Option 1 Cable Processor Module?
- Can the Insight operate without the IMA system ?
