    2014: plugin Prius says depress brake pedal to start.

    The battery was low and we went on a trip. upon our return the car would not start. I replaced battery with a new battery and the same thing so I replaced the brake light switch.

    When I leave the car after I go through the start procedure the car beeps like it should when the key leaves the car.

    Following is a list of things the car will and will not do.

    Headlights will turn on

    Break pedal will power up and move

    Fan in rear of car turns on

    Front and back seat interior lights come on

    Horn

    Emergency flashers

    Parking button illuminates green

    Ignition is Amber



    Things that will not work

    Blinkers

    Running lights

    Brake lights

    Electric mirrors

    radio

    Instrument cluster

    Rear compartment light

    Door locks

    Seat heaters

    Trunk beeps but does not open


    Gas door will not open but car says ready to fuel this stays on until I manually open the door and close it

    Welcome. Sorry. We seem to have missed your post for a few days. Sounds like you might have a blown a fuse or two.

    But with that many things acting up, I'm afraid it could be mice in the wiring. But I hope not.

    That's really interesting. I usually use that brand of bar soap and we like to keep a supply of such things on hand. However, the strong smell of those bars in the linen closet bothers my wife, so we keep the soap in the garage. Maybe I've been protecting my car's wiring all this time and didn't even know it. :D:LOL:
