    The hybrid battery in my 2004 Prius is shot (battery charges and discharges quickly, battery cooling fan on constantly, warning lights, and an ODB2 dongle has codes saying there's a hybrid battery problem). Until that happened the car was running fine.

    I'm in the Boston area and was wondering if there are any recommendations on where/how to replace it. I assume dealers (a) can do it, but (b) are exorbitantly expensive. Are there any other options? And any recommendations on independent shops that can do it?

    not that i recall reading about. try googling hybrid shops. stay away from rebuilds if you can.

    kind of surprising in an area with so many hybrids
