vwsb1974 has their car in neutral right now

My new to me 2009 runs out of 10 year 150K warranty on Mar 11 so I have about two weeks left of warranty. I have had the car for about a month now and the battery is showing signs that it is not in the best shape. It does a recal quite often and dose not provide much in the way of power. The IMA light has only come on once when I was backing it off some ramps after doing a valve adjustment. The car was serviced every 5k at a Honda dealer since new. Think i have any chance of getting Honda to replace it before the warranty is up in two weeks? If so dose anyone have any tips or pointers to say when I take it in to have the battery looked at? Car has just over 105K miles on it

My IMA light had turned on, but turned itself off by the time I got to the dealership. The service writer said that as long as the light did turn on, it qualifies for the warranty claim, and true to his word, they replaced my battery.

If your 12V battery hasn't been disconnected since your IMA light came on, the code should still be there even if the light is off. There's a chance they'd take it even if the code has been lost - I think there's other performance data the car keeps which they can look at.

Take it in, and just tell them like it is.

I have not cleared and codes since the light came on so I am hopeful that there is a code stored in for the light coming on. It has an appointment tomorrow so I will let you know how it goes.
