    Hi all are there any good apps to check the high voltage battery block levels?
    I have used Dr Prius and got the following results.
    Which blocks look worrying, at 32 secs and 39 sec are where I try to accelerate but the car hesitates.

    Torque and Hybrid Assistant are also capable of monitoring the HV Battery, but the app you are using is going to provide you with your best hybrid battery Intel.

    Did you perform the specific battery test(accelerating and then decelerating )?

    I tried to, I was in traffic, and only at 32 secs and 39 seconds I was accelerating briefly.

    A large empty parking lot is good.

    The way the reported values are bouncing around, I would expect that you have corrosion problems on some of your connections, as well as possibly some bad modules. You probably need to open up the case and take a look (or have someone else do it).

    This was accelerating and braking and accelerating and braking again on a straight road.

    What result did Dr. Prius interpret for you?
