Thanks for postingHave you checked the condition of the 12 volt battery in the trunk or has ist been replaced recently?If the battery is not the problem please visit an auto parts store like advance Auto Autozone etc and have the engine codes read, they do this at no charge in most states, let me know what the engine code numbers are.

Thanks for the reply, I realize that it is a hybrid, I'm just asking you now to have the diagnostic codes retrieved from the computer so I can better help with this and maybe come up with a solution.
