This booklet has been prepared to help emergency response professionals identify Honda gasoline-electric hybrids and respond safely to incidents involving these vehicles. Generic Information for All Honda Hybrids : Identifying a Honda Hybrid Gasoline Engine Electric Motor 12-Volt Battery Underhood Fuse Box High-Voltage Battery Module High-Voltage Battery Box High-Voltage Cables. Emergency Procedures Vehicle Fire Submerged or Partially Submerged Vehicle Preventing Current Flow Through High-Voltage Cables Best Method for Preventing High-Voltage Flow Second-Best Method for Preventing High-Voltage Flow Extricating Occupants Moving or Towing a Honda Hybrid. The easiest way to identify a Civic or Accord hybrid is by the word HYBRID, which should appear on the right or left rear of these vehicles (see model-specific pages for exact locations). During start-up and acceleration, an electric motor, located between the engine and the transmission, provides assistance to the engine. During braking and deceleration, the motor acts as a generator, recharging both the high-voltage battery module and the 12-volt battery. A fuse box is also located under the hood on the driver’s side of the engine compartment. Removing the main fuse from this box may be required in some emergency situations. To improve aerodynamics and fuel-efficiency in the Insight, most of the high-voltage shielding under the vehicle is behind smooth metal paneling. When the ignition switch is off, electric current cannot flow into the high-voltage cables.
