Welcome to Justanswer, My name isXXXXX am here to help.
You only need to disconnect the battery in the rear and pull the plug at the battery center
This will be a orange plug found in the trunk under the spare tire cover
I have a 2010 prius hybrid that i have to do some welding on. I want to know where i can find toyotas recommended procedure for powering down and then repowering the system after i am finished.
is it possible to get pictures of what i am looking for?
Let me see what I can find
I have to disconnect both batteries, Is this going to cause a problem when i repower the car?
Just pull this plug and disconnect the positive from the battery
The Big battery will still have power just not to the car
Then you will put the plug back in and reconnect the battery
I have done this many times rebuilding these cars
what do i need as far as gloves to pull the plug
They say to always wear high voltage gloves when dealing with the car
I never did but I am not saying you shouldnt
does it matter what gets unhooked first?
does it matter what gets hooked up first?
You can do either one first
The car will not just start shooting sparks like some think just use caution dont be sticking metal inside the battery pack or getting wild with it you will be fine
any length of time that i have to wait before i start cutting the quarter panel off?
I would wait 5 minutes this is how long the battery takes to discharge the airbags systems

I am standing by if you are in need of anything only time we get credit is if accept if pushed I would appreciate it.
do you know where i can find this information in writing from toyota?
Your looking for what information from toyota? How to discharge the system
i have the owners manual and there is nothing in there
Not sure dont have the toyota database but I took 2 years training on toyota hybird systems at my school in wa state
They had a special program which I took just to be on top of this
wish i did
