Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Prius. It started blowing battery cell. I replaced 3 in the drive battery. Then 1 more. Toyota told me I needed a new drive battery. I got a dorman from car.id installed it, would only start and shift into gear once. I drove it. Then it would not. Code for bad controls module. New different drive battery, same, but codes for bad inverter converter . Help pleaseūüėÄ

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Never but new from dormam

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Prius yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I just described what I've done

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it's setting a code for the inverter then most likely the inverter will need to be replaced, but it would depend on the exact code. Testing of the high voltage system components may be required to determine exactly what is wrong.

What P codes are currently setting?
