    I drove the prius to N Hollywood and had the aux battery changed. At a hybrid car place there. Dove it home and so far so good. I'll see what happens in the am when it's been sitting overnight. Had taken it to pep boys first but because i had cleared the codes there was No info.....
    So far it had burped the triangle of death both times while we are having cold wet weather. Rear defroster and heater running as well as windshield wipers and lights.....will see what tomorrow brings.

    probably average in the heat, but there iare many factors involved. i get 8-10 years out of them.
