2010 Toyota Prius ABS, BRAKE and SKID light all came on

Customer Question
2010 Toyota Prius ABS...

2010 Toyota Prius ABS, BRAKE and SKID light all came on while driving down the free way. Prior to this throughout the day there was a hissing or barking sound when I would apply the brakes. Also, there is a constant every five second grinding noise that sounds electrical, like something is trying to turn on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

ABS, BRAKE and SKID light all on

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

No took it to the firestone and they said my brakes were fine but that Toyota should see the car immediately to diagnose ABS?

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

That's it

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

you need to have abs system scanned and retrieve faults , but sound like the brake booster is leaking internals from the diaphragm is what that hissing sound is , what you say if you get close to brake pedal and press it , do you hear the sound from inside the car at pedal

Please let me know

Thank You

my VIN number is ***** included in this recall. VIN is JTDKN3DU3A0221831
The recall range is A0001044-A0067875what now?
Toyota Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 6 months ago

it does not matter , you still have to check that

these numbers not always accurate

if the booster is ok then you need to scan it and get fault codes and we can pull an exact troubleshoot or we will be guessing and end up throwing parts at it ,

the fact you hearing a grinding noise , also could be the abs pump is activating prematurely , is it cause of pump defective or abs wheel sensor or a yaw sensor to many parts involved
