    Thanks everyone for the help! I think we're in the clear for now and I learned quite a bit more about my 2009! Much appreciated!

    This is false, the ABS pump does not pull power from the HV Battery. It pulls power from the 12v.

    There is 0 risk of a bad ABS pump (which it sounds like you don't even have) damaging the HV Battery.

    Could it damage the 12v? Sure. A bad Accumulator pump will constantly cycle sometimes with the car off, which will discharge it. But there is ZERO risk for Hybrid Battery damage.

    As far as diagnosing a bad Accumulator... here is a Video showing my Brake Accumulator functioning normally. (0:17-0:35). This video is from my personal 09 Gen 2

    here is another Video showing Brake Accumulator failure. this video is from another Gen 2 Prius that shows Brake Accumulator failure with an in-depth description in the post of what's happening.

    Seems like you have things figured out but thought this info might be helpful.
