    can't find the prius 1 fourm so will start here I got a 2001 that has been sitting since 2014 had a bad battery found a parts car that runs & drives ( 2001 wrecked) took battery out & put in the 2001 & when goes too start just makes a clunk & red triangle pops up, I tried to put a breaker bar on the engine it act's like something is froze up any way to try & spin the transmission over ( which is the electric motor) I think it sat too long, it did run before but battery was bad that's why I parked it.

    The gen1 forum is buried in the gen2 section.

    Obviously it takes years of practice to become so obscure, but @Tideland Prius had a reason.

    The one who cannot be tagged... (except by moderators, I believe).
    Similar to "He who shall not be named".

    The site started when the gen2 came out, and the numbers of gen1s on road meant they were an afterthougt.
