Customer Question

While driving, the key detected in vehicle message appears, together with a flashing yellow triangle and loud beeping. This happens intermittently when I hit a bump. Replacing the key batteries didn't help.
JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?
Customer: You mean the 12-volt battery under the hood?
JA: What is the model of your '12 Toyota?
Customer: I have a 2011 Prius 4 standard model.
JA: Are you fixing your Prius yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've taken it to the dealer. They say they've never seen this, and want me to pay $100+ for a general diagnostic. The only other thing I've done is to go online, as I'm doing now.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything else.
