I changed by 51R battery today. The other one was going dead

Customer Question

I changed by 51R battery today. The other one was going dead and we had to keep jumping it for the car to start. Now the car will not start and the display says in Red Letters "BRAKE MALFUNCTION see Dealer" and "Check Hybrid System" can you help?

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Most likely one or more fault codes have set with this issue here after the battery was replaced such as low voltage codes as this will cause this fault here.If you have not had the fault codes checked or cleared out this needs done using either a scan tool that is fully compatible to speak to all computers on your vehicle plugged into your vehicle or a computer compatible plugged into your vehicle.

In some cases all that needs done is to have the fault codes cleared out/erased to correct this type of fault here if low voltage codes have set.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
