    I was going to get diagnosis for Brake Pump Assembly from letter earlier this year. I went to start Prius this morning and no power. The plug in doesn't even light up to charge. Had to have a tow truck come to take to dealership. Ironic if it is the Brake Pump Assembly. The Battery warranty ends next year. Anyone else had this problem?

    There is also a second battery..

    Have you ever replaced the 12 volt one? or is it original?
    Hopefully that is all it is.

    yes, it happen to me just a few months ago. get a new 12v as d4d suggests above, and you'll be good to go.
    you need a healthy 12v to start or charge the car.

    not sure where you're going with the brake pump thing though...

    Next time just check the 12 volt battery. And if you need to move the car, or get somewhere, a jumper cable or jump pack will get you going.
