    Tried an unsuccessful search. Has anyone found a diagram of what the dashboard symbols are. Specifically, I have a yellow light on the extreme right of the MID next to the red word "brake." Can't find anything in the obtuse owner's manual.

    Sounds like the parking brake is on. There is a light and the word "brake" on the far right side of the display when you haven't released the parking break.

    No that's not it. The yellow light stays on after I release the brake (the word "brake" goes off.

    You're joking right? The manual goes to page 608. Thanks.

    My PDF verion of the 2010 Prius Manual goes to p. 616. This is the version that contains the corrected minimum octane rating (87), not the incorrect one (88.) I believe it was issued in January, though I could be mistaken.

    The paper manual probably has a different page count, but I rarely refer to it anymore, as it sits in the glove box and I spend more time on my laptop than in my car.

    So no, I am not joking. Sorry for the confusion.
