2005 Prius: I...

2005 Prius: I replaced a blown engine, making sure all hoses and electric connections were done.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

The car has 150,000 miles and is an automatic. Before I replaced the engine, I could hear the engine turning. trying to start. The triangle with exclamation point light appears on the dash as I try to start while holding the brake. On the information screen in the left upper corner, I get an orange box with the outline of a car with a line down the middle.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Toyota?

It is a Prius. VIN JTDKB20U257051693

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

Yes, I have replaced the engine.

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

Brake light stays on in the dash. I don't get the zero before mph. I get the check engine light and a round symbol with an exclamation point in it. ABS light is on and the traction control symbol is lite. Start button has an orange light. Green on parking brake light.

Thanks for posting

First check the 12 volt auxiliary battery, voltage must be 11.8 volts or above.

If the HV was disconnected by removing the orange service plug be sure it is locked on when putting it back.

12.57 volts battery 7 months old yes the orange plug is in and lock. the parking brake light and now blinking,and saying the parking brake is not engaged. Are all the connector different ,which one would be for the starter.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 7 months ago

T​he orange plug is installed with the lever pointing out, then the lever is pushed in then the plug has to be pushed down, sometimes this last step is not done or forgotten, I just need to be sure that it is locked on correctly.

I replaced the HV battery last Feb the plug is in correctly
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am a fairly competent mechanic-doing most of my auto work for fifty years-however I have never worked on a hybrid. Simple answers like, have I checked the battery, cover things that I do just from past experience. What else could cause the engine not to start-the engine does not even rotate and the engine did rotate with the blown engine. Please call me. Here is my cell phone number(###) ###-####
