    Yes they did but when I shut the car off and hit power again all warning lights are then on and not just the two mentioned, and of course they want it left and a full diagnostics run on it.

    okay, but there were codes then. swing by auto zone and see what their free scan picks up

    A P0AA6 error, you will get some type of leak. It's decision making time when that error comes, to keep the car and pour money in it or to get rid of it. A dealer will charge 3 to 4 hours just to diagnose this problem.

    Will swing by there tomorrow when codes are on if any and update................really thought Toyota would get something on their scan as I had not unplugged it since the warnings came on!
    When driving it drives perfectly with all features working fine (as far as I can tell) AC, lights, radio, gas reading, everything.

    I am not sure what brand HV battery and cannot open to look as I had spine surgery and cannot access it. But the garage (i have used fir years and trust) double checked it when all this started and say it is working fine.

    Thanks for all for input, really hoping I don't have to put the car down as I love this car and we do 200-400 miles a day in it.

    they might have been scamming you. their idea of diagnosis starts with reading the codes. if there are none, they usually say there is nothing they can do.

    My feelings exactly....both local dealers want 150 to diagnose it.

    I might be wrong but I think the case is grounded to the car by the mounting bolts, if some are missing it will not work properly

    what did they charge you for the repair?
    a NEW HV battery is over $2000 plus labor
    replacing weak mods is around $300
    new 12 volt battery around $175
    if they dont have the correct diagnostic equipment they have no idea whats working and what s not.
    most small shops cant work on hybrids correctly

    HV battery was over 2200
    12v did myself
    My shop wont do anything on this problem as they cannot identify the issue,
    which is honest of them not to try and then say they can't lol

    Local garage............how would this effect the issue if the 12v disconnect seems to reboot the issue temporarily

    it could be a defective battery. 12v clears code until computer picks it up again.

    if it isn't a brand spanking new toyota battery, that may be your problem.
    a lot of aftermarket batteries are bad soon after installation. you should go back to the shop that installed it, have them read the codes and explain the warranty.

    vague, unless you understand what is happening. also, many novices think the prius only needs 12 volts.

    you have to understand that the system check is with a small load on the battery.

    Yes...small load reads 12.7and then with engine running it reads 14.6v
    I am not sure where you are going with this? According to another thread on here theses readings are good........is there something else I should know as I am not a mechanic or very knowledgeable about the electrics of the Prius.

    After 38 posts I want to tell you Bisco is our friendly greeter. He is similar to the guy that hands you a donut and says hello to you when you go to the dealer.

    I think it's safe to say after 38 posts you should no longer concentrate your time on your 12v battery and move onto actually fixing this car. There is nothing wrong with your 12v

    I attend to agree about the battery...........also I appreciate any help from anyone but as of yet have not been able to find any advice to work (although I have not been able to get the codes yet so have not been able to supply this for advice)
