    hi all,

    i have prius c 2014 , it has 52K miles , recently i had checked the battery blocks voltage using obd device ,
    i found the voltage around 13.80-13.96 , its the failure start as the dealer told me ,

    really its very weird and annoying to have this problem so early ,

    please advice what i need to do to have longer battery life as i can ??!

    The best thing I can suggest for long term battery health is temperature control. Keep the battery cooling fan perfectly clean, and use your air conditioner to keep the cabin cool.

    what's wrong with those voltages?

    c has a rep for shorter battery life, imo
