Which of the following statements about the high-voltage circuits in a Honda Hybrid is NOT true?

a. All of the high-voltage cables are covered in orange sleeves for easy identification.

b. You should always follow the disarming of the high-voltage systems before performing any service work on or near the high-voltage circuits.

c. There is a main switch on the instrument panel that is used to disconnect the battery module from the rest of the car.

d. There are three large capacitors in the MDM that will take at least 5 minutes to discharge after the switch is turned off.

To determine

The incorrect statement about the high voltage systems in Honda hybrids.


Hybrid vehicles rely on very high voltage so, proper safety precautions should be taken before attempting work on these high-voltages systems. Before performing any servicing make sure that the high-voltage system is properly shut down and isolated from the vehicle otherwise an electric shock, fire or explosion may result. For easy identification all cables are covered in orange sleeves. Also, these systems are so heavily powered thus to avoid any accident when working on or near the high-voltage systems, always use insulated tools and wear safety gloves...
