Does anyone know how to connect a backup camera to gathers vxm 118vs???? the terminals are different.
Harshana | May 8, 2013 at 9:00 am
This is what Japanese Manual of Insight says with regard to Motor oil “Degradation of engine oil will be severely during the winter.If you drive short distances, the city mainly in the winter , Please be replaced as soon as possible.” (冬期はエンジンオイルの劣化が激しくなります。
は、早めに交換してください。) So our agents over acting to increase the wealth of motor oil importers ???? since we do not have a winter climate…
Kit | May 8, 2013 at 10:38 am

Hi, Anyone knows a place to buy a USB cable adapter for Honda?
Miguel | March 31, 2013 at 8:40 am
I have Honda insigt 2011 model and I experienced “tuk tuk” noise from the engine it can be sensed even after the bonnet closed.
I have one more IMA battery level,indicating on the display is at same level just a below the fully charge level.
Priyantha Appuhamy | April 2, 2013 at 4:49 pm
Any body knows root cause for this issue.
I bought FIT GP1, in middle of junuary, average fuel consumption was 16/15km/l,
one morning suddenly it goes up to the level 22/23km/l and staied around 1 month.
now its slowly degrding, now it is 18km/l. (these situations arise without any concerns about ECON button, I kept always off mode)
Charitha Ekanayake | May 13, 2013 at 10:25 pm
Tick tuck noise is quit normal. It just the exhaus pipe got expansion and retraction due to heat. I could not understand your second concern call me please.
Sarojini | March 30, 2013 at 11:38 am
I read the reviews on TYC cabin filter & all were 4.5-5 star .
The cost would be less than Rs 3000/= in ebay with delivery charges. Has anyone had any experience on this filter ?
Thushan | March 29, 2013 at 8:16 pm
Hi guys plz advice me. I am looking buy a Honda insight. is it good or NOT?
What is the Honda insight battery life time ? wt is d cost?
Harshana | March 26, 2013 at 5:03 pm
Stafford is promoting Motul for Insight for about 3-4 years. But I’ve observed that most of European car brands like AUDI, BMW (320, 520) embeds Castrol logo on the lid of engine oil chamber eventhough Motul is a European brand. So our agents judgement is in question with high priced Motul?
Hem | March 25, 2013 at 4:40 pm
I’m planing to import HONDA FIT HYBRID, NAVI PREMIUM car. Will I have to pay extra tax for the options such as alloy wheel, set up ect.
Harshana | March 26, 2013 at 5:07 pm
Check it with the agents; Stafford, whether it is a standard item for the vehicle. Otherwise, you have to pay additional taxes and levies imposed based on Customs Value for Alloy wheel etc.
Duthindara | March 21, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Harshana | March 20, 2013 at 9:00 pm
Car is good but unable to find properly trained staff for hybrids in here. as per agent’s advice, to trouble shoot, you have to carryout trial n error sessions which is costly.
Kosala | March 15, 2013 at 2:31 pm
Thank you very much for sharing setting up bluetooth. It worked well. Do you have any idea of how to tune the TV, as on my Internavi shows Ch1, Ch2,… when it is scanned. No TV channel is stored after completing the scan.
Sarojini | March 15, 2013 at 7:39 pm
sorry, I have no idea of how to tune the TV. Also if anyone knows the way to set the clock please let us know / post a video clip.

What is the frequency of changing CVT Filter (25430-PLR-003 FILTER (ATF))?? Do it need to change @ every CVT Change?

This is the way to set up bluetooth in Honda Insight 2010 JDM
Gayan | March 13, 2013 at 11:05 am
This is only for internavi models.

Priyantha Appuhamy | March 22, 2013 at 4:19 pm
thanks, it worked for FIT ’11 as well
Dammika | March 11, 2013 at 7:33 pm
Hi All, Have a small problem with my Insight. The two tail lights of my car the last 03 led lights are not working. Checked with Stafford & they said have to replace the full back light as they are unable to repair the circuit. Do anyone of you have the same issue & do you guys know where to repair this.
Harshana | March 12, 2013 at 10:22 pm
I too have the same issue with my insight & observed it is common for Insights about an year or two old. Try to open the light without breaking the seals coz it seems to be waterproof. But frankly i dont bother abt it since most of the LEDs are working.
Colombo Driver | March 11, 2013 at 12:29 pm
Bottom of the windshield (in the center) there is small panel you can open that and see the number.
Lasantha | March 13, 2013 at 1:11 am
Under the panel you get the chassis number but not the VIN. Someone explained me why I can not find this number. This is because my vehicle is a Japanese made for domestic use and in vehicles for US and Canadian markets, you can find it exactly, where user’s manual describes. You can find VIN, when you scan your vehicle at service station.
Lasantha | March 10, 2013 at 1:48 pm
Hi Guys, thank you all who helps to keep this thread alive. I’m new to this blog and the reason why I’m here as you understand, I bought a Honda Insight 2010 too. Now, apart from the series of questions which I have and out of which for some I got reasonable answers here, I would be glad if you could help me to locate the VIN (vehicle identification number). As you know, this is a unique number for each vehicle. According to the information (from various other websites + on Honda official website – https://radio-navicode.honda.com/) I’ve gathered, I should get it at the bottom of windshield on driver’s side, which of course I couldn’t find. Does anybody come across with this?
Thank you. Lasantha
Amal | February 26, 2013 at 4:55 pm
Has anyone changed tyres on a honda Insight? What are the LRR options available in SL (Dunlop Sp31, Bridgstone Ecopia etc)? I have got 38K on the Dunlop Sp31′s, still have some wear left.
Harshana | February 28, 2013 at 7:42 am
If you are trying to go with exact tire size (175/65 R15), there are only 2 options. ie, Dunlop or Falcon (as per stocks avail @ the time of i changed my tires). Dunlop tires which came with vehicle have a trend of uneven wear due to low density side walls. (if u want more dtails,pls read my previous postings with regard to same subject)
Yohan | February 20, 2013 at 2:24 pm
Is it possible to install a naviagtion software for orginal insight stero?? does anyone know a place where i can fix navigation system. If anyone know the steps to change the clock pls share.
Prasad Thennakoon | February 20, 2013 at 11:26 am
That shop is tech motors. No need to worry. if you request genuine, they will provide you. They offer me CVT fluid 01L for Rs.1800.00 Castrol 10w30 oil 5L can Rs. 3700.00.
Radiksha R. | February 17, 2013 at 5:05 pm
I just had a walk around Panchikawatte looking for stuff for my service and Tech motors said that the engine oil used right now is 5w-30 or 0w-30 because 0w-20 is not available all this time. they said they have got the 0w-20 and that is the recommended oil on the manual as well. can you advice on this???
I know the earlier posts, you recommend the 0w-30, now since 0w-20 do you see Stafford motors or any other going for a 0w-20 oil??? The brand is Motul and the cost for 4L is around 12k.
let me know your thoughts pls?
Fit | February 23, 2013 at 10:02 pm
I used Toyota 0-W20 for my Fit. Service interval 5000 km and cost 5000+ for 4L.
Charitha Ekanayake | February 27, 2013 at 10:14 am
Service manual said 0w-20 because you are locking at a Canadian manual. Also its not suitable for srilanken clement. Try to go to 0w-40 Mobil. It will only cost you around 8500rs. I already had a meeting with the Mobil people they are agree to bring down 0w-30 as well for better price
Thilak | April 17, 2013 at 11:54 am
I had couple of vehicles (TOYOTA and HONDA) both I had to remove my engines and clean due to sludge. It had cost me around 12-15K for the repairs. I had a friend he even took MOBIL to consumer authorities on this matter. The product I used was MOBIL 1 fully synthetic. Guys do not use MOBIL synthetic ..be aware…
just a small tip.. do not use MOBIL Synthetic as its builds up sludge. this is very common in Toyota, Honda and other uropian vehicles. I personaly had this sludge issue and Stafford recomanded for me to go for mineral oil and i got rid of that. Now i use MOTUL 0W 20 fully synthetic so far no issues.
Ruwan | April 18, 2013 at 6:51 pm
It is not the Mobil-1 the problem , it would have been using Fully synthetic oil in a non frequent driving car( <2okm/day).
Motul is also fully synthetic so be careful. Best thing is go for Mineral oil and it is less costly as well.
Chaaritha Ekanayake | May 13, 2013 at 10:36 pm
Again guys oil is used based on clement that you using the car. 0w-20 is for colder clement. Also I know that some of the oil company’s try to get the 0w-30 monopoly. Don’t worry it will not last. I already talk to some oil company’s and they agree to bring down oil for much cheep. Use 5w-30. Honda recommend both of this oils
Harshana | May 16, 2013 at 1:23 pm
Charith, B careful, as per my knowledge, both Mobil & Motul are imported by 2 separate entities which belongs to the same group??
Mahesh Mendis | February 16, 2013 at 12:05 pm
i brought a honda civic hybrid recently and want to decide on the correct engine oil to be used.
i m a low milage user and it usually is about 1750 km/ month if the synthetic oil can use for 10000kms then i can run my machine around 6 months once engine oil is changed. But what is the lifetime of synthetic oil? is its less than this time, then I may have to change it prematurely.
Further, what are the suitable natural oils available in th market what will be the prices of these two types ( total overall price considering the durability against the refilling price)
please can somebody advice me on this matter.
Thanks for all who share info here including HONDA hybrid service team.
One other problem – Stafford motors is not working on Sundays – can somebody in Stafford can think of extending the service like the other operators do.
HCA | February 19, 2013 at 9:49 am
The best oil for our climate is either 5w-20 or 5w-30. The 0w is not effective since there is no winter here and the coldest possible ambient temperature is well above 0 celcius.
so what you should focus on is the SAE parameter which is 20 or 30. now this is also temperature dependenat. If the ambient temperature goes very high your 20 grade oil will not be that useful. therefore 30 is the ideal SAE for our climate. I have used Mobil 5w-30 in my civic and its very good. i only change my oil every 8000km.
but if you’re price concerned you can go for Toyota 5w-30 oil which is about half the price (but semi synthetic) and go for a 5000km or less oil change interval.
Gayan | March 7, 2013 at 3:01 pm
we are recommended fully synthetic oil for 10000km or 6 month which ever come first. any way u can use SAE 10W40 for low mileage like 5000km. Now we are opening till 4 o clock on Saturdays.
Harshana | February 14, 2013 at 5:07 pm
Does anyone has any experience with Hybrid Motors Lanka or Davis Peiris Hybris Centre ?
Charitha Ekanayake | February 12, 2013 at 12:52 pm
Guys there is a software update for civic and insight hybrid. But what it basically dose is decrease the usage of the battery. It will make your IMA light comes on to a weak battery slower but the problem is not going to solve. Instead your fuel economy will go down and your pulling power will be much more less. Be advised if you want to do this.
Harshana | February 12, 2013 at 10:44 pm
from whr cn we obtain the said update?? and associted costs thereto?? insight central talks abt the updates which provide solutions for the symptoms i have mentioned in this blog which my insight have for abt 6 months.
Chaaritha Ekanayake | May 13, 2013 at 10:38 pm
sorry harshana call me. i can do it 0718682744
Prasad Thennakoon | February 12, 2013 at 11:01 am
Yes, you can bring all required things from out side. Auto mirraj is ok. I also did like that before 2 weeks. There is a shop @ panchikawaththa near to the HNB or commercial bank. it’s not hard to find it.I will try to give you that shop’s name.
HCA | February 13, 2013 at 1:55 pm
Thanks Prasad, Much aappreciated if you can give me the name of the shop..
I hope they have genuine stuff at a reasonable price?? how much did it cost you??
I checked mobil oil 5w 30 price and its about Rs10900 for 5L can… is this correct??
isn’t there any similar oil from Caltex which is cheaper???
Radiksha R. | February 20, 2013 at 11:08 pm
the name of the shop next to com or hnb is Leela motors… but they dnt have engine oils as of now.. only cvt oil.
HCA | February 11, 2013 at 10:56 am
Can anyone help me in finding a good auto spare parts shop for Genuine Honda stuff?
I’m approaching a 40k service and I want to buy
5w-30 engine oil
CVT fluid etc
but don’t wanna get ripped off by Hybrid Motors or stay the entire day queued up at Stafford motors and pay 10k extra. So i’m thinking of buying the above from a shop and taking my car to Auto Mirag/Carepoint or a place like that.
Anyone knows where I can buy Genuine honda parts at a reasonable price and does Auto mirag allow to bring your own oil/ filter etc for a service???
any help would be great!!!
Ruwan | February 13, 2013 at 9:59 pm
Yes most of us do it like that and save 10k or more, Try Tec motors at Panchikawatta , you will be able to get most of the said items from there
Nipun | February 8, 2013 at 4:33 pm
Any one has Honda FIT hybrid 2011/2012 user and service manuals? Please let me know if you have.
Mangala | February 8, 2013 at 9:18 am
what is HMMF error ??
Ruwan | February 13, 2013 at 10:15 pm
It means you have to change your CVT fluid.
R.Priyantha | February 7, 2013 at 9:33 am
I have Honda FIT GP1 hybrid, could you please share user manual / service manual / repair manual..
Radiksha R. | February 5, 2013 at 2:33 pm
Hi Guys, I got an error sign with the steering wheel on the display today morning and couldn’t turn the steering wheel on the vehicle. The display switched on after a while turning on the ignition. I red the book which said the EPS is malfunctioning and to take it to a dealer. Do you think it’s safe to drive the car to a location? or should i get some help to come home? I can turn the steering wheel but it’s very hard.
Harshana | February 6, 2013 at 8:07 pm
As per the symptoms your EPS has got disabled or malfunctioning. Therefore you have to put an extra effort when steering like the vehicles don’t have Power Steering. (i had the same experince with dead 12v Battery).
Hence, drive with care and got it solved by a knowledgeable technician as soon as possible.
Radiksha R. | February 7, 2013 at 6:31 pm
Thanks I got it sorted…. It’s embracing but apparently a rat has bitten off the wire that connects to the EPS socket. Sheesh… I’ve had vehicles for the past 20 years without a problem i don’t know how this could happen now. But i realized the engine guard on the front has ample space for a rat to stay during the night unlike other vehicles. I need to do something on this… thanks again for the help!
A very special thanks to Chartiha who advised me on this. Appreciate your support in this regard.
Prasad Bandara | February 2, 2013 at 9:54 pm
Dear Charith/ and Honda users,
Does any one have experienced or analyzed the performance of Honda insight 3 (Ze3) JDM versdion. This car has 1.5cc engine (CR-z engine), although Sri Lanka version is equipped with 1.3cc engine. I found new model provides more head room at back seats and suspension has improved. All the external options are seems improved. But it says fuel performance is bit less than the 1.3cc ze3. I am planning to buy a car from Japanese auction, but i am seeking some user/ expert comments prior to my purchase. If anyone have any practical experience with ze3 (1.5cc) at Sri Lankan roads please share me your ideas. thanks.
Charitha Ekanayake | March 28, 2013 at 8:59 pm
i need little more time for that. but i think ze3 will suite our country best. iam getting a test subject for that in near by days.
Harshana | February 1, 2013 at 9:40 pm
How can we check whether our engine is IVTEC or not ???
Charitha Ekanayake | February 5, 2013 at 12:53 pm
Well it’s vtec but not ivtec. it has 2stage vtec.
Harshana | February 24, 2013 at 9:23 am
Is thr a way to identify Vtec or Non Vtec engines? Mr. Kusumsiri @ Stafford told me Non Vtec hv 8 plugs n Vtec hv 4 plugs only???
Charitha Ekanayake | March 28, 2013 at 8:51 pm
well IDSI engine has 8 spark plugs. that’s true for Honda fitarea.in hybrids its a modified idsi engine. it uses vteh to optimize the efficiency on the engine. some Honda cars use vteh just to give more power
