Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I would recommend attempting repairs on a hybrid vehicle only if you're properly trained and have the proper safety and testing equipment.

This warning will display for a number of reasons and it will require some testing to determine the cause. The warning is being displayed because the hybrid control module has seen a failure somewhere in the system. The issue could be with the battery, transmission, inverter, the control module itself, cables and connections; literally anything in the high voltage system.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will to be use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting and then testing can be done from there.
