I have a 2005 Toyota Prius 96k miles. My vsc light, check engine light, and a circle with a exclamation mark with a parenthesis is on. Also a car with a exclamation mark is on the screen?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is it the hybrid battery or could it be something else.

I see that you requested a phone consultation. I will submit that offer now you would need to accept that then we can discuss this via the telephone. In the meantime if you have a code reader to see what codes may be set in the engine control computer? Any generic code reader will do. Or if you get to a nearby AutoZone number parts store where in most states except California or Virginia they do free malfunction code reads. If you can get those code numbers and post them back I can give you a better idea of what might be going on. I have to step away from my computer I will check back to you.
