      Hi Eric, Prodigyplace recommended I contact you with my dilemma.

      need inexpensive way to diagnose (c profile picture). regular obd2s have not produced any codes. checked engine oil (someone said it maybe the cause) and it is perfectly fine. Checked the battery 12 V, also fine.

      How do I go about diagnosing this?

      Error goes away for few m minutes after 12V battery is reconnected but come back after few minutes.

      1. My brother in Albuquerque NM bought a 2002 Gen 1 with 120,000 miles on it 3 weeks ago. He loves car and so far no problems but he is worried about HV battery failure. To ease his fears, would you know a good Prius shop in Albuquerque, OR would your shop rebuild a Gen 1 battery if he shipped it up to you? Could,you give a ballpark as to what such a battery rebuild would,likely cost?

      I tried to call you a few times and there's never an answer. Do you have limited hours or an office number I can reach with questions about my battery?

      NortTex,
      Can vary. Sometimes it's a bit unexpected.
      I'd say post the question on the main forum and see what the group thinks.

      Hello
      Do you know or what are the indications(signs) of a HV traction battery about to fail?

    I have worked on hybrids for over a decade and was the first independent mechanic in Madison to work solely on hybrid vehicles.

    Besides working on cars in my shop I provide mobile service and can even ship hybrid batteries anywhere in the country.

    I also enjoy helping to bring the hybrid car community together. Organized the annual Hybridfest and Green Drive Expo events for 7 years in Madison,WI and San Francisco Bay Area. Still run the annual InsightFest for Honda Insight owners.

    I also founded and run the local hybrid car club since 2004.
