The headlight switch is still bad, but I found a Honda Service Bulletin 04-015 that lists the light switch and connector kit used in the recall. The incredible thing is that the kit is far cheaper than the light switch by itself! I bought a kit at Capitol Honda in San Jose, CA and I was shocked. So was the parts guy. Combots is this weekend and I have a lot of motor controllers to get rebuilt. When it’s all over, I’ll put in the headlight switch/connector kit as well as add a relay to take the load instead of the switch. There have been reports on the Insight Central forum of guys Insight’s having the headlight switch fail a second time. So it seems to me that a standard auto parts store Bosch relay is in order.
The MIMA system for the Insight is really beckoning to me. I have been looking into a kit or a completed assembly. It’s hard to tell what the cost savings are. Here are the cables that I would have to buy the wire for and then fabricate.
There is a fellow named Pred that made the MIMA kit and installed it. Here are his pics of how the joysticks were installed. His integration of the joysticks was very clean! Here is a link to many customers of the MIMA.
