P1600 AND P1433 CODES

I have a Honda Civic Hybrid 2004 and my check engine light came on and stayed on for a day. I had the codes pulled and reset and it came back as a 1600 and a 1433. The check engine light came back on yesterday all day and then today when I got in my car for lunch it was not on anymore. I called the Honda Dealer to find out if it was a problem and he said he didn't know and I would need to bring it in. I want to have an idea of how much its going to cost before I take it in. Its going to cost be $125 just to run the diagnostic on there. There have been no adverse affects on my car's driving. Any clues or thoughts were I can get a better understanding of the codes? At Autozone it said for P1600 it is "Loss of Kam Power; Open Circuit". The P1433 code said A/C refrigerant temp. circuit low.

    Do you have the ness. technical mauals to fix this based on the code definitions, if not take it to the dealer, but here is what I know, your AC cycling switch may have stuck open, this would be the P1433, the P1600 is loss of the computer keep alive memory circuit, this could be a loose connector or connector pin at the computer, or the computer may have an internal fault, check these items first before anything else.

Engine code P1600 and P1449


Hi:

The P1600 code is usually a IMA fault, and the P1449 code is a battery deviation fault.
Both are usually early warning of some sort of hybrid battery issues.
You need to have a system tech give the hybrid system a good look over, but most likely your IMA battery pack is most likely suspect

Honda civic hybrid code p1433 and p1600


The P1600 is a generic OBD II code. It just means that a more specific code (Honda) has been set. To find the specific code you have to take it to the dealer or have a Vetronics Mastertech scan tool to get the actual code. The P1433 indicates thats the the main battery contactor or the by-pass contactor is staying active when it should not. Using an Actron pocket code reader will only read generic OBD II codes. Hope this helps.

Honda civic 2004 check engine light is on can't get it to turn off with a hand held code reader. Reader says there are no codes in the hand held. but the check engine light stays on?


Futher diagnosis may be in order. If there truly is "no Codes" you need to find out why the computer is turning the light on. I would have the dealer or a shop that works on a lot of Honda's look at it.

Codes P1433 and P1600 on Civic Hybrid


those codes are thrown when there is a momentary hicup in the electrical delivery from the battery pack. clear the codes and drive it, if they dont come back you are all good, it they do come back then you most likely have a corrosion issue between the battery monitor system and the battery
