While keeping my right foot on the brake I slammed my left foot on the emergency brake. The climate control system turns off and on on its own. Toyota has to replace entire exhaust and catalytic converter because of one small part that rusts shut. After sitting 30-40 minutes, car drives normally again. Turned out to be worn spark plugs. Have not yet checked the engine temp yet.
Paid to have the ignition switch, oil sensor and spark plugs changed but didnt solve problem. Even this 2004 Prius still has the original battery. First visit 2 cylinder problem. After a short interval managed to start car and resume journey. Vehicle was started and shifted into drive.
Update: oil still a little low, but will just monitor for now. I was told by dealer that nothing could be done and I needed to carry oil with me and check level every time I fill up my gas tank. Dealer cleared the code and the car drives perfect again. While my car was being serviced for the recall, I mentioned the problem to the dealership, and there was a tsb out on the problem. See the for more information. Hoses started to get warm after squeezing when the car is running and the inverter coolant pump seems to be working. I repeated the process untill the coolant level didnt go down anymore.
. And gunning it from a traffic light, while not earth-shattering, will surprise alot of other drivers, and you don't feel guilty doing it. Trouble code P0A80 This is the one all Prius owners fear. I pumped the brakes, and nothing happened. Lots of conflicting advice from mechanics and Prius owners who have dealt with this problem. I immediately looked for a safe place to pull over when the car made a series of short dinging sounds and the car was automatically put in neutral and the brake engaged--in the middle of a busy intersection! Any comment will be greatly appreciated! Dealer tried charging me 4400 even though two other dealers had lower quote.
They resecured it with clips. Workshop cleared codes and car started and ran without further issues. My contention is that this second-generation Prius third, if you include the original, which wasn't imported to the U. My first was a 2005. I tried to drive it, but it failed again.
I felt the car tumbling and was aware of the air bags deploying. Battery easily heats to or above this temp during normal use. I trailered it myself, it ran but I didn't know how long it would. Yesterday, I was told by TofD that they would not have the new part until today bc they had to order it from Houston. It's also roomy and dependable.
This resulting in an overheating warning popping up on the car screen. Both are excellent when it comes to performance. I'm always terrified about the next electrical component that will give out. I traded this car in for a 2008 Toyota Prius. So, doing any tests on the old throttle body is a moot point.
The engine started up and began charging the battery triangle and engine light still on. I turned off the ignition and waited about 1 min and turned the car on again. The vehicle was taken into the dealership and they were not able to duplicate the failure. Dealer found bad injector cylinder 2 again. Seems to be burning it.
Moreover, it also have dark windows so people can't see in but we can see out. Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Which shop did you take the car to? This makes me really suspicious, why not? However, the dealer first said Toyota would not pay for it unless the dealer was able to independently verify the trouble, and they were not able to recreate the distressing situation. This is the water pump for the hybrid battery cooling system. The contact stated that smoke emitted from under the hood while driving into a garage at 5 mph.
Car sluggish in this state and has poor fuel economy. He is now on his third set of tires. After doing research, it appeared the problem was with the coolant control valve. I chose to replace with a new hybrid traction battery. I was out of warranty but Toyota stepped up and paid all but 2900 of it as a courtesy gesture after I bitched to corp for a few days. Battery easily gets heated and takes a while to cool, partially due to heat soak, partially due to not cabin. Even so, for the fuel efficiency, the Prius has been worth it to me.
