    Had it checked out at Toyota today, they tried to reproduce the problem but failed. They did diagnostics on the battery (whatever that means) and said all is well.

    I guess I'll chalk it up to being normal after a steep down hill with lots of regeneration and parking!

    MPG's are excellent, I get 60-70mpg on my way to work and about 50 coming home (uphill).

    With something like a tech stream can I program the cooling fan to come on earlier? Or are they more for monitoring rather than changing things in the car?

    i think you can, but not positive. scan gauge can, iirc, so tech stream should be able to do anything.

    Hybrid Assistant is android only. I use iPhone but have an old android phone just for the Hybrid Assistant app while driving to monitor the hybrid system and manually turn on the battery fan. IMG_1509.jpg
