    I have a 2004 Prius with 120,000 miles. Engine light came on. Code reader indicates 'Control Module' $7EA and $7EB. Has anyone seen these codes and know what they mean? Any help would be appreciated...

    Thx

    Those DTC apparently are corrupted as they lack the correct format. A correct DTC will have an LNNNN format, where:

    L = P for powertrain, C for chassis, B for body, U for communications, as examples
    N = a hexadecimal character; 0-9, A-F are acceptable values

    Those are typically ECU addresses...... 7EA and 7EB are response addresses HVECU and the Traction Battery

    // ECUs
    // -- request/response
    // -- 7E0/7E8 for ECM (engine control module);
    // -- 7E1/7E9 for TCM (transmission control module).
    // -- 7E2/7EA for HVECU (Hybrid contol module)
    // -- 7E3/7EB for Traction Battery
    // -- 7E4/7EC
    // -- 7E5/7ED
    // -- 7E6/7EE
    // -- 7E7/7EF
