    2007 prius. Hi. I was trying to get through a patch of snow and the anti spin or whatever kicked in about 4 or 5 times in rapid succession. Then 3 dash lights came on together. Red triangle, brake and check engine. Sometimes the brake light goes off for a few miles but it comes back on. The other 2 lights are constantly on. I used an OBD reader at the auto store and it showed no codes. Thoughts and suggestions welcome. Thanks.

    You need a better scanner or have a dealer diagnose it. Toyota's Techstream is the end all be all but is about $2k for a legit system. There are illegal hacked systems available at the usual online places.

    Welcome to PriusChat!!

    Many prefer to use a "mini-vci" cable (20 usd) and techstream (dealer technician software) installed on a windows device, others may use a less robust option, like a OBD2 bluetooth adapter with an App like Dr Prius or Hybrid Assistant.
