    So I cant seem to find any information anywhere on this so: when changing the battery on my civic, do I need to reset the BMS or Battery management system (if there even is one) or can I just replace the battery like for like and away I go??

    Hi all, I checked on Civinfo's wiki on flat battery to troubleshoot battery drain. The wiki said that the normal drainage is 0.02a after initial connection. When I first test my car battery for amp (parasitic current), it was 0.55a at the start but after few secs, it came down to 0.05a. I...

    Hi all, I had the dreaded leech battery drain which after some rather strong Googling I discovered is often attributed to the HFT (I didn't even realise I had this as it has never worked since I owned the car). Last night I nipped out to the car and disconnected the HFT, thinking I had solved...

    My FN2 is on the wobbly at the moment. The other day in a queue of traffic the car cut out on me and even the hazard lights wouldn't come on! After 15-30 seconds the car "woke up" again and started when I pressed the ignition. On the same evening the VSA came on and wouldn't go off and the car...
