    My prius performs fine expect weird problem happening only at higher speeds, usually anywhere over 50 MPH.
    Engine shuts off, I get check engine,hybrid system kicks in and I have to immediately drive into shoulder lane to turn it OFF and then then back ON in order to drive way.
    This problem never happens in the city driving conditions. Codes would disappear after day or two unless I go onto highway again.

    When the hybrid powertrain starts failing the first symptoms often do tend to appear primarily at freeway speeds. Also sometimes the error codes from a problem in the hybrid battery pack can first show up as error readings in the inverter / powertrain... How would you like to proceed? Are you looking for a good price on mechanic to do the work, or do you want to do the work yourself?

    how many miles on her?

    what are you reading the codes with?

    did you get the inverter recall done?

    is there movement in the fluid reservoir?

    have you checked the 12v health?
