      I’m wondering if the financial outlay ( at least $2000 ) makes sense given the age and miles of the car . The fact that the hybrid battery and AC are pretty recent make me lean toward making the repairs

        Yes, I understand your position. I hope that will be the end of needed repairs for a while.

      Hi Patrick ,
      Please advise on my 2006 Prius . It has 128,000 miles and needs a new brake actuator and left axle cv boot . .
      In 2016 , I replaced the hybrid battery with a new one and replaced the AC .In 2018 I bought new Michelin tires and had brake pads replaced .

      A new actuator is $1200 .. the cv boot part is $75 or cv axle and boot kit $528 .Labor at a non dealer hybrid repair is $109 an hour .

      Hello Patrick,
      Can you offer any advice or tips on how to separate the CHS water pump electrical connector on a 2006 Prius? Thank you. Peter

      Hi Patrick, I see your name come up a lot and hope you might be able to advise me. I recently had an inverter pump fail on my 05, pump has been replaced, am2 fuse replaced and car now operates again except that the a/c doesn't work. is there a procedure to restore power to the a/c after the inverter has shut it down?

        There is no such procedure. Did the A/C work correctly prior to the inverter pump failure? Does the cabin fan work?

        P0AA6, info code 612 means the ground fault is within the traction battery. Look for a leaking battery module first.
