Hello Guys and Girls,

I wanted to know if my HYBRID HONDA CIVIC 2010 would still start up and run if my hybrid battery pack dies ?

If it gets started and i am able to drive it, will it affect the car anyhow (apart from few MPG less) on a long term ?

Thanks in advance.
N.R.

Does it have a separate starting battery? If so then I believe yes you will be able to drive it. How big a detriment to your fuel mileage will depend on how smart is the charge controller. If it tries to charge a failed battery BAD things could happen.

Your LiPo battery WILL die in 3 - 5 years and 300 - 500 equivalent full charge/discharge cycles. ALL LiPo and Pb-acid have roughly those limits due to internal corrosion 'aging'.

I don't think hybrid batteries are allowed to die -- it would damage them. I think if you leave your lights on, for example, you can run your starter battery dead, but the hybird battery is only for the drive system. Not completely sure...
