Good to hear there's been some improvement.

I recommend another 12V reset and charge to full SoC.

Key off.

Charge the 12V battery and grid charge IMA battery for 8 hours.

Do not reset the 12V again.

Grid charge and discharge every oil change.

One last update...

My IMA light has gone out. The code has cleared.

It had been staying off for as long as 20 seconds after first turning on the engine, but on Saturday after Christmas, it stayed off.

This may be because the battery has equalized a bit more, but I suspect it probably has more to do with me having left the grid charger plugged into the battery. When I went to throw some luggage in the trunk for my annual post-Christmas cabin vacation, I unplugged the GC and stuffed it deeper into the corner, out of the way. Whatever the case, the light's out and my IMA is assisting like it did when I first bought the car.

In other news, Bumblebee has very graciously agreed to purchase the replacement IMA I had bought on eBay. If they ever wanted to cement my business in the future, that was the way to do it.

Eli is always looking for core packs, and he'll pay a fair price for them.

Thank you for the follow-up. Glad to hear you're seeing improvement.

Keep a close eye on the SoC gauge. Look for recalibrations. When they start to get frequent, do another charge/discharge cycle OR do one every oil change (1-2 per year).
