Q: Integrated Motor Assist Light coming on

asked by on

If the IMA light is illuminated, in many cases, the system will be shut down to some degree to prevent further failures. Have the vehicle system scanned for any fault codes stored in the computer as there are a couple ways this system can fail. The light can be due to a battery pack that is not charging correctly. The cause for the improper charging must be determined first in order to perform the correct repairs.
