They all seem to be shut but I suppose one of the sensors could be faulty. It is a real safety issue for our family. If an owner experiences a failure of the inverter before the vehicle receives updated software, the dealer will replace the inverter assembly with a new one at no charge. They assure me they had only done cosmetic work Right back passenger side bumper , and were not in the engine. Some people will say that you need to have the battery under stress to actually test it, some say that you need to balance the cells after replacement. My 2003 Prius triangle warning light has been coming on along with the check engine light at least once a week, it seems to me that it occurs when it is over 100 degrees outside. I am sympathetic about this.
No drips under the car. Otherwise, direct you attention elsewhere. Consequently, when she took the vehicle for a routing oil change, it was impossible for the mechanic to separate the oil from the oil filter housing. He claimed it was a misfire in 1 cyclinder. The battery meter level was completely dead.
Had car towed to nearest Toyota dealer. Toyota's own mechanic admitted that the repair is financially impractical for customers, yet if the repair is not made, drivers are left without a functional check engine light which is a safety hazard. The mechanic who inspected the valve said it was not closing securely. That it's happening to more and more of the 1st generation Prius' as the mileage gets up there. I figured out I can reset the light if I reboot the system restart the car 4 times at exactly the 4th time the light goes off. These are mainly just informational indicator lights and should not be cause for concern.
This is a big safety issue and sounds like another recall like this. The check engine light is constantly on. With the warning lights on it drives very slow. Appartently there are some new ones with problems. It's a decision that you will have to make. I restarted car about 15 min.
I called my Toyota dealer, a service rep said it was ok to drive as long as the warning lights weren't flashing. The vehicle was not taken to be diagnosed nor repaired. Dealer replaced inverter pump assembly and flushed the inverter system. I am assuming since I bought my Prius from a private party that I don't have any warranty coverage? Turns out it was unidentifiable debris that had melted onto the air flow sensor wires in the air intake box. It should be a recall because it's a common problem for 2nd generation Toyota Prius. They confirmed that the warning had come on, however could not find anything to fix it.
Bang, there it was again. In the future you may want to invest in a obdii code reader so you can at least read and clear error codes on your car s. The wrecker driver could not load the vehicle to tow using the car's power because there were no brakes. All good news, so far. The oil usage slowed down, when I tried using castril full synthetic oil--at the suggestion of a neighbor of mine, instead of the Toyota dealer oil and mobil 1. All electrical functions are working. Thats why the interior lights get brighter when you start a Prius that has a low 12 volt battery.
The contact was able to restart the vehicle; however, the failure recurred six times. Big bucks but he said it was covered under the extended warranty. The city I am in being a driving city, and being a small 5'0, 110lbs female both my fiancee and my parents put pressure for a new-damn-sure-it-won't-break-down car. The place that performed the oil change agreed to look at car and clean the throttle body. At this point the brake system warning light is also going off and on, while the Master Warning light remains constant.
I slowly exited freeway on battery power then turned car off. The dealer claimed that there was oil in the throttle body caused by overfilling and this is a common occurrence with oil overfills on Prius vehicles. Jan 14, 2013 I'm sorry to hear that you've had so many problems. At some point, she said she felt like the engine was chugging a bit, and the check engine light came on. They told me it was okay to drive and I took the car to them to get it checked out upon getting back in town. At the time of the incident it had about 8500 miles on it. Was towed to springfield va Toyota dealership were it was serviced.
