Customer Question
The red car with...

The red car with an exclamation point came on. The check engine light has come on frequently, but the mechanics couldn't find anything wrong. It just comes on and off. But now this other light is on and I don't know why. The car is acting fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2002 Prius

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

No.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I do not believe so.

Did the mechanics pull the codes from at least the engine control computer? Do you have those code numbers?
