    Well 12v works fine. I think it’s the hybrid battery. She’s live 2 and half hours me. I’m in dc. But she says the 12v is ok.

    She needs to visit a Toyota dealership......and pay the diagnostic fee if they charge one.
    HIGHLY unlikely it will be fixed by Tuesday.
    Most owners......and even many otherwise competent shops don't know how to tell if a battery is good or not.

    There might be a lesson to be learned here about leaving things until the last minute.

    The usual approach would be to use the troubleshooting procedures for each diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in Toyota’s Repair Manual (more info) for 2013 Camry Hybrid cars built for sale in the U.S., RM23F0U.

    Several of the DTCs you’ve mentioned, however, aren’t listed in that manual, which suggests that the diagnostic tool that retrieved the DTCs isn’t compatible with the car, or there has been a mistake made in reporting the DTCs here. For example, B1101, B1643, P1A6F, B2793, and C1009 are all manufacturer-controlled DTCs, so their meanings are not defined in the SAE J2012 standard, but Toyota doesn’t use them on this model.

    P0A80, P0A82, and P3019 suggest a problem with the HV battery, its cooling fan, or related electronics or wiring. I wouldn’t recommend replacing the HV battery or any other parts, however, until the DTCs have been read properly, other causes have been eliminated, and it’s clear what other problems the car might have, which might make it uneconomical to repair at all.

    As the first step, the car should be checked using a Toyota Techstream diagnostic system, either at a dealer, as @sam spade 2 kindly suggests, or an independent shop.

    [Edited to fix (more info) link; thanks, @dolj.]

    Wow. How old is the 12 volt?

    If the car has less than 100k miles, the emission warranty should cover the cat, and might the battery.

    @Elektroingenieur, FYI your (more info) link is broken. My browser reports that it can't open the page "pctsi" because it can't find the server "pctsi".

    The car has 150k miles and the 12v was replaced in late March of 2016

    The car was bought in Chester va about 6 years ago as a used car in good condition. It would taker her 40 minutes to get there. Do you think the car can make to loyalty Toyota in Chester va if it takes 40 minutes from Charles city? Because the car is having issues.

    I’m not sure I understand. If this car is a Toyota Camry, model year 2013, how could it have been purchased eleven years ago?

    In any case, without reliable information about the car and what’s wrong with it, no one in this forum could tell you whether it would be safe to drive, at all or on a specific journey.

    I meant 6 years ago sorry I was thinking of went my car was purchased I guess I got mixed up here. It has the ready up light but all the on the dash are light up it also the battery goes up to green likes it overcharging then down to purple after 2 minutes of drive she’s says and the 12v has 11.9V it’s that ok to drive in?

    One of the codes was about the battery fan needing cleaning. Another for overheating the battery. First thing to check is whether the vents to the battery are blocked.

    All the fluid levels need to be checked. If the codes are correct; the oil is getting too hot, and the brake fluid is low.

    Again.....nobody knows for sure.
    That one piece of information doesn't mean much as far as overall health.
    BUT it does indicate that the 12 V battery likely is BAD.

    Then, there is no good reason that the diagnostic needs to be done at the place the car was purchased.
    Are there any Toyota dealers closer ??

    Given your 11.9 reading, I think you should replace the battery with a new, fully charged one first.
    Most any auto parts store or battery store can help with that.
    Call ahead to be sure they have one in stock.......and to see if they will install it too.

    Likely, but that alone doesn't explain all those codes.

    Have you NOT been paying attention to all the threads that you have responded to about sudden multiple trouble codes........and the quite common cause for ALL of them being a failing 12 V battery ??

    Well that story is VERY common.
    The computers responsible for generating and reporting the codes often don't work right when the input voltage is low.......and thus generate false reports.

    That alone might not explain "all those codes" but the odds are high that it WILL.
    If not all, many.
    And the ones left need to be investigated one at a time.

    Well aware.
    My post was in response to bisco's about the hybrid battery.
