Natalya, any new info on your tragic red light ending?

Anywho, hit a new record to work today (warm morning, must have helped!)

I read on Insight Central (can't remember what thread) that you should not switch out the OEM 250 watt 2 filament brake light bulb to a lower watt LED bulb because the IMA system (assist and regen) uses the brake light coming on as one of the parameters to turn assist and regen on and off and without this 250 watt signal it can effect the operation of the IMA system.

I converted all other lights (including headlights) to the lower watt LEDs on my Insight, but I kept the brake lights OEM based on this information. Don't know for sure, but this may be part of your problem.

Also, as an early adapter to LED bulbs, I have always had trouble with LED bulbs that tried to replace any OEM 250 watt 2 filament (brake light) type bulbs.

Mine have not had any issues. Everything works like OEM bulbs did, just brighter and consumes less. When I did some research, everything said that you HAD to make sure to use a CK-type wiring. If not, it was issues galore. That's why I went with the ones I did, specifically said it would do CK and for me, worked like a champ. Natalya, on the other hand, had one blow up on her. Makes me a little worried, but I've left my brake light switch on for extended periods in warmer temps without any issues thus far, but time will tell.

See that pic. The bulbs I am using do both. Not sure how, but they work.

I also used CK-type bulbs. Mine have been in for the better part of 2 years now:

Weird thing happened yesterday...

I reset the SOC by pulling the fuse under the dash. I guestimated where it should go back in and drove off. Everything seemed normal, minus my scangauge was not showing up. After the calibration, all worked normal, but when auto-stop engaged, it got a dinging sound the entire time. Odd... then I checked my MPG. 150! WHAT? Nope, that can't be right... so I pulled the fuse and looked under and put it back in the right spot. Everything was back to normal. Sadly, my tank MPG is now tainted as it was around 77mpg, but shot up to 86 after the few miles on the 150. Weird...

Anybody seen this behavior before?
