    At first my air bag light went on then the red triangle then the VSC and ABS etc. I took it to the dealer they clear the code and they said they couldn’t figure out what it was and the light never came back on after they drove it. The car run and drives fine. I took the car home and all the lights came back on agai. I took it back to them and now they said it could be an air bag module but they sound like they weren’t that certain and they are charging me $650 on top of the diagnosis of $130 that I already paid them. I don’t know if I should trust them to get it fix and what if that is not what is wrong with it. Pls advise or if you know any repair shop in Michigan I really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to PriusChat!!

    If you took the vehicle to a Toyota dealer and they charged you $130 for a diagnostic, then they should've gave you some paperwork after you paid them. Look on the paperwork for any five (5) digit OBD2 fault codes; examples are: "B1826" or "P0A80" or "C1310".

    If there are no the 'fault codes' (aka DTCs), then they didn't do a diagnostic test on your vehicle, or you didn't get what you paid for.

    Tell them too, you definitely want to see the codes on the paperwork.

    Sorry, didn't read closely, see the diagnostic has already happened.
