    That rectangular message usually (US cars) is the “maintenance require” Notification.

    If there was a problem with the inverter, the triangle of death would surely flash on.

    I kept on driving for few days. At first it displayed engine check, generator icon and antiskid icon. But interestingly now it's ok by itself. I didn't get chance to show it to mechanics.
    What I guessed the cause of problem was that i carried more than 100 kg weight in car boot right on top of the battery.

    I don't know how that would matter. The battery has a very strong case surrounding it. I know..... I've replace mine.

    The OP is in Pakistan. Maybe it's only Japanese-market Prii that are available in Pakistan.

    I do expect JDM are cheaper because of their limitations.

    So apparently, the Japanese market version of the Prius fat shames the rear seat passenger. Who knew?

    Because second-hand Japanese domestic units are what gets shipped to his local market.
    That doesn't sound like a reasonable cause for that warning message. That car should easily be able to carry that much weight in the boot.
