Was this an automated car wash were you had to put your car in neutral and it pulled you through the car wash?

it was
Expert:  scionking replied 5 months ago.

Try turning your car on and off several times. This could be due to low voltage, or it may be because the cars computer saw wheel movement while in neutral.

I cut the car off and on like you suggested... Check hybrid system light is still on
Expert:  scionking replied 5 months ago.

Try driving the car a short distance ( 1 Mile) and then shut off and restart. If this does not resolve the issue a Dealer may have to clear the light, or you can try driving it longer and see if it clears on its own. It may take several drive cycles to clear on its own.

With this check hybrid system light on could this cause any damage?
Expert:  scionking replied 5 months ago.

Based on events leading to the code I think not. However if the light does not clear on its own I would definitely have a dealer look at it to air on the side of caution in case there was an underling problem.
