Customer Question
***** ***** 01 prius...

***** ***** 01 prius no start nocrank with code 3125. installed used inverter.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

No other codes. 3125 comes right back once try to start. the ready light comes on for a second after clearing code when trying to start.

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $20) to post your type of question to Toyota Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Ok,no hurry.

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The P3125 code indicates you have a short in the inverter. This is a very common code when the inverter is faulty. Sadly, this sounds like your replacement inverter is faulty. I would not be surprised over this. There are a lot of inverter failure these days on this particular unit. I would seek out a replacement inverter that was known good. Sorry I do nto have better input, but this code is pretty clear. The inverter on this car is faulty.
