Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I do not...
This sounds like a "take it to the dealer scenario" to diagnose the problem...
I'll take your advise and go to a Murrays Auto place to get bateery tested. Get back with you. How do I recontact you once done as i am going to go now.
Battery was checked with volt meter and reads 12.5 to 3.3 or so when running. I was told Toyota will do a free computer check which tracks all events, so this is my next step. This issue has happened very infrequently, perhaps 3 times this year. As it is my wife's car, she is nervous about driving as last time two days ago, she got stuck at a shopping mall. We went back three hours later and car started right up.
Prius is back. Battery was replaced after they used a battery tester which showed it was weak. Replaced the battery. Computer at dealer does not show an error code, so can't help there. Battery was original to 2006, so got a long life out of it.
Thanks. We will see if there is any reoccurance of the problem.
