Customer Question
Sis' 2011 Camry hybrid...

Sis' 2011 Camry hybrid wouldn't start a couple days ago - temps -30C, had motor assoc come boost. Turned over ran fine. Yesterday again same thing, used my battery charger/booster, turned over no prob. Today again same thing. Repeated,and went out for a bit came home and tried starting it. It turned over but the yellow caution light is on as well says "check hybrid system"

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The yellow caution light on dash and the message is by the odometer

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

Other than boosting it to start the same as a tow truck driver thats it

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

Hi My Sis' 2011 camry hybid has'nt been wanting to start last couple days - didn't think an issue as it's -30C and colder. Had the motor assoc come boost it the other night, started fine. Yesterday again had to use my booster to start it, and today again. I tried just stating it 1/2hr ago , started but there's a check hybrid message on dash

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Typing is fine, just wanting to know if it's that battery in the truck, or something else thats causing this issue. Safe to drive to dealership like that?
Toyota Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 6 months ago
You can drive to the dealership, yes. This warning may be voltage related but possibly not, the only way to know for sure will be to have the vehicle scanned with a Toyota scan tool, which is the first step the dealer tech will take. Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
