    Press the button for the hazard flashers, which should force all four turn signal lights to blink on and off. Do they work now?

    If they do not, check the following fuses: 10A HAZ, 10A GAUGE. "Check" means that you find the fuse in question, remove it, and test continuity by using a multimeter set to the ohmmeter position. Do not rely upon visual inspection.

    Sometimes you need the wiring diagram for the car to be able to troubleshoot it.

    There may be some relays in the system.

    Is it the fob or not? I've checked today with mine (SKS on):

    Without fob in car:
    Red immobilizer warning light is slowly flashing.
    With opened door the red open door warning light occurs.
    Trying to start results in a single beep and the yellow no key warning light lights up for some seconds.

    With fob in car:
    Red immobilizer warning light is slowly flashing.
    With opened door the red open door warning light occurs. With fob in slot in addition to open door there is a beep-beep-beep-... 20180105_173248.jpg 20180105_172956.jpg

    When you said you checked all the fuses, most cars have more than one fuse box. Did you check the one on the inside of the car under the dash on the left side of the steering column? Watch the second part of this video and it will show you where it is. I never saw mine and I owned my Gen 2 Prius for 10 years.

    Interior Fuse Box Location: 2004-2009 Toyota Prius - 2005 Toyota Prius 1.5L 4 Cyl.

    There is a third fuse in the luggage compartment also.


    This says 2008-2009 and I don't know if there is any difference than yours so check your owners manual.
    Toyota Prius Second Generation (XW20; 2008 – 2009) – fuse box diagram | Auto Genius

    I would assume all this information is in your owners manual, read it.

    Sorry for ghosting. UPDATE: after having my Prius for 9 months the Toyota service center gave up and left me with a $3,000 bill and a car that doesn’t work. I managed to negotiate my bill down to $700. Sold the Prius as is for peanuts. Worst experience ever.

    Hmmmm….. reading through this thread again makes me believe this is all an AM2 fuse ….

    Acrid smell (inverter cooling water pump burning up)
    Loss of dash and display....
    only the door ajar and the car/key symbol...

    Been several times that people think they checked all the fuses, but missed it......

    Everything points to ICWP and AM2...

    wish I had known that earlier, but most of my ICWP experience has occurred after this thread started..
