Q: IMA Light on

asked by on

The IMA Light is on in the car.

It sounds like the electric motor battery is not working as efficiently as it should be, and needs to be replaced. I would have the codes pulled on the computer; if you have a P0CA4 code coming up, that means the battery needs to be replaced. A mechanic at YourMechanic can service your battery at your home or business.
