Have just received a recall letter for my '08 Civic 1.8i ES titled 'Honda Civic Hybrid Fusebox MICU'.
At first I thought it referred to the 'HYBRID' Model and it was a mistake.
But no, the stated V.I.N number is correct for my car.
It appears that this MICU (Multiplex Integrated Conrol Unit) controls a number of Electrical systems AND, on locking your car, should then go 'TO SLEEP'!
In some vehicles this is obviously not happening and, if the car is parked up for a reasonable period, the Battery becomes drained.
This has 'NOT' been the case with my car, but I wonder if anyone else may have experienced the 'Low Battery' problem and wondered why this is happening!!
