On this 2008 Prius C1310 code means there is a malfunction in the HV or hybrid control unit. There are multiple problems that can cause this code to set in the VSC system this is basically a default code shutting down the VSC system because that system needs critical information from the hybrid computer for regenerative braking and so on and to apply the brakes in correspondence to what the vehicle skid control computer is trying to do. You need a scan tool that will access the hybrid ECU and the engine ECU to find out what the subcodes are in those systems.

Would a POA93 coolant level warning cause all of these lights to come on. Red triangle, brakes vsc and check engine.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Just got it back from the shop and did not think to check that sick they were meant to top off the fluids.

Yes that is correct anytime there is a malfunction in any of the other subsystems it will cause all these lights to cascade and come on all of the systems need information from one another. If they top the coolant off and the codes are cleared and no warning lights are coming on you should be good to go. If you need any other detailed information regarding this issue feel free to reply and I will get back to you otherwise if you have not done so please do not forget to rate the assistance I provided you today at three or higher and a five would be awesome thank you.
