I have a 2008 Honda Civic IMA hybrid, automatic gear car. It

Hi there,I have a 2008 Honda Civic IMA hybrid, automatic gear car. It developed a problem with the IMA battery that I got replaced recently with a reconditioned IMA battery. However, the mechanic who replaced it diagnosed a problem with the gearbox (generator) which affects the working of the IMA battery.I was hoping to get an opinion from a mechanic well versed in hybrids and electricals who can give me a second opinion on this matter.JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?Customer: i haven't but someone else has.. it seems it's not working properlyJA: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I haven't tried fixing it myself... i had a mechanic replace the IMA battery, who used a voltmeter and said that the battery was not getting charged properly, and hinted that the generator inside the gearbox might be at fault.. hence gearbox needs replacingJA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: that's it

I have a Mini r50 cvt 2003. At times when I turn the car on

I have a Mini Cooper r50 cvt 2003. At times when I turn the car on I cannot release the gear stick when after pressing the brake pedal down. When this happens I have to turn the car off and on and this generally resolves the problem.When the mechanism is working, after pressing the brake pedal down, you can hear a definite click coming from below the gear stick and from the passenger foot well indicating that the release mechanism is working. When it's stuck, you can't hear or feel the mechani when pressing the pedal down.Your thoughts please.
