Thanks for posting

Did the dealer make a recommendation as to what needs to be done, did they tell you to replace the hybrid battery/

The code is for a malfunction of the battery pack, usually an uneven cell voltage detected by the computer. The dealers do not repair these batteries even if only one of the 14 cells is weak. There are some shops or vendors online that fix these or offer an exchange unit for far less than the $4000 or so for a new one from the factory, you'll have to do a little research on that. It would also help if the dealer gave you a printout of the battery health including individual cell voltages.

Just a printout of the code ... just worried it could be link to something else... Can it be the 12 VOLT in the back
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 10 months ago

Are there any other codes besides the C1202? What did the dealer recommend to you?

Not with the one they attached... I did have another code before I brought it in but I had my converter services and fluids drained. THE Car is running just running hard...

Y​ou can have the 12 volt battery in the trunk tested but I don't think it is the problem, It sounds like you're going to have to get this battery replaced unless you can give me some more specific information and it sounds like that dealer is not to co operative.

The dealer wants to charge me $6k... I get replaced by someone else do you know where I can sell it, possibly

D​o a goggle search for you area, search for "hybrid battery exchange" shops.
