Check engine light came on with ref exclamation triangle and "Check hybrid system" light

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

On

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

Prius 2010

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

It just happened 10-15 min ago.

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

Just 10 min before that light came on bunch of rocks fell off the truck on a front of the car, some even damaged the front windshield.. I'm not sure if it's related or not...

All it is telling me is to check hybrid system
Toyota Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 7 months ago

at this time , You will need a factory scanner or equivalent to run a diagnostic scan & retrieve fault codes from the Vehicle modules and based on these fault codes we can pull up a Pin Point troubleshoot and be accurate on it ,If you do get it scanned ,you can post the fault code back here for me and I can help you further on it and be more accurate .

now the issue started with the rocking hitting , first thing you want to do is raise it on lift and Visual look, there check hybrid system could hv battery, hv ecu, hv charging sensors etc to many to guess at at it , now the car is 2010 and now we 2018 almost that is 8 years and is about time hv battery needs replacement ,but i can not tell you if related in this case hope you understand since i will be guessing if i did ,with rock falling and could have caused damage
