Customer Question
My Prius won't start...

My Prius won't start after replacing 12V battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

I don't think so nothing visible but we haven't checked the fuse I just read about on this post

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Prius?

2008

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

There has been a beeping after shutting off the car the last couple weeks. I thought it was oil change alert but remained even after resetting the oil change light

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

Do you know what that means? 3 beeps I think

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?

Ok thanks I've never done this I thought someone would talk me through my car issue. I think I misunderstood what this was

Sometimes questions asked are just to difficult to address not in person or they are on cars which we know are near impossible to diagnose DIY.
