    Hi all,
    I have come across this article very interesting, suggesting that Toyota Prius inverters (2010 - 2014) might cause problems in the future or why some Prius owners might have problems with their inverters (fault codes: P0A94, P324E, P0A10 & P3004)
    Those inverters issues might cause serious safety issues while driving.

    It suggests also that the software update fix is not working and why the Inverter need to be replaced. The article suggests that Toyota is minimizing the issue because of the costs of replacing it versus just the software fix.
