Also a grid charge isn't THAT hard to do.
Gen-1 Insight IMA code is even easier to clear ... no scanguage needed ... disconnect the 12V battery for 1 minute ... it forgets it had a IMA code ... it will also forget the IMA SoC ... but if you let it idle for a few minutes it will figure the SoC out again.

You could probably stop at Autozone and have them kill the code. I removed my instrument cluster once, my speedometer needed lubricating (żĄ!?). Then I had a well-lubricated but disconnected speedometer.

I guess that was less useful.

Pulling the fuse also sounds easy, but I would advocate actually fixing the problem when you can.
