Rebuilt salvage 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid, 33 k IMA and check engine lights on all the time with the battery charge fluctuating from 2 bars to full randomly. If I drive it over 100 miles, strange things start to happen with the indicator lights in the dash board. First, cruise control disengages on it's own. Then steering light comes on. Green light by the D starts flashing, then disappears altogether. At the same time, the brake system light comes on. I have had it to the dealer. They replaced the starter battery and positive cable and charged me $500. Still did not fix the problem, then they suspected a short in wiring somewhere (due to that it is a rebuilt car) and said they would have to do disassembly to find it.
I also took it to the auto parts store and ran the codes:
U0110 lost com w drive motor control module
U0111 lost com w battery energy control module
P16d5 TCM INTERNAL CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION(F-CAN CIRCUIT) - from http://www.micro-tronik.com/faultcodes/obdii_faults_p1601_p1700.html
U0155 lost com with instrument control panel cluster (IPC) control module
Thoughts?

Hey FRANCIS88,

This sounds like it can be one of two problems, either yo have loose system ground somewhere, I would check them all, or the main electric hybrid battery is out and needs replacement which is a common problem with that car.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken
