    So my prius started doing this 3 weeks ago. I would turn it off and then sometimes itll turn itself back on in accessory mode. One time i turned it off and sat in the car for like 10 minutes, it turned it self back on. Doesnt happen every time but it does happen often enough its messing up stuff like resetting my miles meter in the energy monitor and sometimes itll turn off my AC when it turns it self back on. Heres a video

    Try to turn off the smart key system and only use the key in the slot. If you take the key out it can't turn back on? So it's just peeping? Or does it still turn back to ign-on?

    Just a guess. The power button is physically or electrically sticking. So it thinks your holding the button down?

    Basically what the test on my previous post is testing. If control unit sees the button pressed without the key in it peeps. If it's a problem with relay control unit etc. it will still power on.
