    Yes again it shut down while driving in the motorway with CHECK HYBRID SYSTEM on display and a red warning light picturing a steering wheel and a exclamation mark.
    It took two starting attempt to bring back the engine
    The only one thing in common with all the other times that this as happened is the weather temperature,as soon the outside weather is 10 Celsius or less I keep having this problem
    Toyota clueless on my last chat to them.

    ????????????

    How many miles on the odometer? The dealer wasn't able to pull any codes?

    Usually, for such errors, it's inverter related like overheating, etc. Have they checked the inverter coolant pump, engine coolant pump, and maybe the thermostat?
