2005 Honda Civic Hybrid - Replace Regular Battery

My wife owns a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid The dealership keeps telling her that the car battery needs replacing. I'm wondering is it needs to be replaced with a genuine Honda battery, or can we just buy a cheaper battery from an auto supply store.

Also, we live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and are looking for a repair facility that will work on hybrids that is not a Hpnda dealership - looking to save a little cash!

Thanks

If it is the regular car battery that starts the engine you can put anything in. But if it is the Hybrid battery you are stuck going to the dealer.

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

My 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid alarm system is no longer responding to the remote control after changing the battery in the remote control. Any ideas on what might be the problem.


Try locking and unlocking the doors with the key to see if it will reset the security system.
It is possible a relay could cause this...there are many relays and computers in this hybrid system

Just a simple question: I'm looking at a 2005 Civic Hybrid versus a 2006 regular Civic. I'm leaning toward the hybrid for gas milage, but one mechanic was Very Wary of a Used Hybrid ..."all the hybrid...


it sounds more like that old adage....how long is the piece of string.... i don't think you can ever predict if something will last longer than others, you might buy the hybrid and drive off the forecourt only to have it brake down 2 miles up the road, and vice versa with the normal civic,or they could be looking at 10000000 miles.. they are to be honest just as good as each other, obviously the hybrid is better for the environment and cheaper running cost, but just as all honda's they are both very reliable, i truly think you should toss that coin of fate and see what side it lands, either way your a winner..hope this helps...sorta lol

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
