Hi Laszlo,

Thanks! I'm anxious to see what it will turn out like.
I was planning on using a simple shunt as my amp meter needs it.

Here are the terminals.

Note that the positive terminals are the pair closest to the rear bumper. The pair behind them (e.g. closer to the rear seats) are the negative terminals.
(I should have swapped the DMM's leads for clarity)

Note these terminals are switched by the IMA system, but nonetheless retain some voltage shortly after key-off. Also it will throw an error code if any voltage is on these terminals when you key on!

My harness has relays that sit right on top of the terminal connectors so I can disconnect them before I key on.
Version 2.0 will have the (dis)connect switch replaced by a tiny relay operated by push-buttons so it will be automatically off on startup.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
