    Hello everyone,
    I had the check hybrid system stop vehicle in a safe place alert. Checked 12 volt battery and had corrosion on negative cable and post. Remove and cleaned, charged battery and tested, it failed, replaced battery. Code remains. Car does drive but acting lethargic.Car charges and shuts off upon completion. No mph while driving, shows 0 mph.No code seen with a regular scanner. Any advice besides taking to dealer?

    hybrid assistant and torque are other reader apps. all the best and please keep us posted. i hope it is something simple, i wonder if anything in the engine department could throw the hybrid system message, like an o2 sensor or something.

    Any recommendations for a quality Bluetooth OBD II adapter? I’ve read cheap ones can cause issues.

    OBDLink LX will read just about anything. Carista will handle anything a Gen 3/PiP will throw at it. I have both. There are lots of other good ones discussed here on PS as @bisco mentioned.

    Yes, the code is 0129. Brake system control module has lost communications.

    UPDATE
    Well, I bit the bullet today and had my Pip towed 60 miles to the Toyota dealership. Just got the call that they found out the skid control ECU is bad.
    Quote is about $2k.

    Is that the same as ABS? Because, the antilock brake systems usually work independently, and as such, you may be able to drive the vehicle without issue, other than no ABS.
