Customer Question

I have a 2008 Prius. While stopped at red lights the engine is going "on-off-on-off" and then at the green light it feels like I have the choke (from the old days) on. This has been described as a bad "Battery Electronic Control Unit". Typically, how much is the repair cost and is the car safe to drive (sparingly) while I save up the money? Thanks

Clear these codes will they clear completely before you drive it? Then drive the vehicle do all of the codes come back together?
