Unfortunately, the code pertains to a common problem that needs a part to fix. The part is a hybrid inverter water pump. It concerns me that the vehicle shut off. There are two scenarios, the vehicle shut off to save the inverter or shut off because the inverter has overheated. At any rate, we need to replace the hybrid water pump. Then clear codes and evaluate.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I’m calling right now to see who is open today and yes I was planning on fixing this myself unless it is something the dealer should do.
Toyota Mechanic: Daniel Lee, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago
It's a very difficult to do at home cause you need to remove a Sub frame bolt and support it. To access the pump I'll give you instructions.

It might be possible I have the car at my shop. I called Napa and auto zone they don’t show an Inverter Water Pump. They advised its a dealer only part?
Toyota Mechanic: Daniel Lee, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago
I was afraid of that. Yeah If you have access to a shop with a pole Jack. You'll be ok

Here is the removal.

Toyota Mechanic: Daniel Lee, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago
It's pretty straight forward after you access it. Make sure after installation to let the pump run by leaving the key in the on position and top off coolant while in the on position before you start the vehicle. That's it. Thank you for using just answer.

Will you be able to send me the part number tomorrow?
Toyota Mechanic: Daniel Lee, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago
but if is a dealer only part. You'll have to obtain it and your local dealer. By giving them your vin, they'll be able to sell one to you.

Got it! Hey Daniel what about the second DTC C1241? Any info on that?
Toyota Mechanic: Daniel Lee, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago
That should be related to the vehicle shutting off. Let's get it running and do a clear and test drive.
