I have a 2008 HCH (79K), and have just returned from a 9 day vacation (the car has been in our building's garage unused during this time). When we got home last night and tried to go out, the 12v battery light, the IMA light, and the Malfunction Indicator light all came on; none of them have been on previously. I had the car serviced at the Honda dealer a couple of months ago, and they only concern I had was that the battery seems to charge and discharge erratically, so I asked them to check it. They said everything seemed fine, but that the 12v battery might need replacing soon (they didn't feel it needed to be done right then).
Is it possible that all these lights are on because the car has been sitting for 9 days and the batteries have discharged? I left the car for this length of time last year and nothing happened. I have the Honda Care coverage, so I have arranged to have the car towed to a dealer tomorrow (today is Sunday). Any advice or thoughts? Thanks...
Can you recommend a specific
Can you recommend a specific code reader? I've got a 03 HCH with 60K on it, and after sitting for a month, it worked fine the first day back home. The second day, both IMA and CEL came on. Am wondering what to do, while trying to avoid going near the dealer.
Do you know anything about grid chargers?

Just thought I'd share some
Just thought I'd share some experiences...
My wife and I have a 2003 HCH. Had it since day one and now it just passed 190K miles.
The only major issues we've encountered was the IMA battery failure at 85K miles. Luckily my dealer worked it out with Honda corporate to have the entire battery replaced free of charge. Since then, it has been running strong and still going.
The other issue we had was with the check engine light at 100K miles. I took it in to my dealer to have it checked, tech came back and said he found no error codes. Three days later it comes back on. Back to the dealer and got the same answer. A week after that, light comes again. This time, I told the dealer to hold the car and see what they can find. Turns out the check engine light sensor itself was bad. So ended up getting that replaced for $100.
Aside from that, the car has been very kind to us.
Word of advice, follow the maintenance schedule to the mile if you can. I do a lot of the work myself which has saved us quite a bit of money.
The car is nine years old approaching 200K miles and I still get 48 mpg on every tank. It all depends on the way you drive.
