    You've already done the expensive part, maybe you can allow the dealer or specialist to bleed the brakes for you? You can get the technical info for DIY at techinfo.toyota.com

    I take it you are getting these codes some way other than Techstream? (Hey, Swype on my phone knows the word Techstream!) You are listing only codes from the brake/skid ecu, but two of them are repeater codes saying it knows there are some hybrid system codes over in that ecu. You should read those, which will probably reveal the issue.

    Any chance you disturbed anything in the hybrid system while doing the work? Traction battery service plug, perhaps?

    Thank you for the replies. I did the expensive part yes, and just about ready to tow it in. thing is i know for a fact ill get a call saying... well were in about $500 and we cant figure it out. want to keep going. $$$$$$$$$ thats every call i ever get when i bring something in.

    I followed a guide to do the installation. i was pretty careful with everything. Was not all that hard.

    i started with the 12v and then unplugged the hybrid battery switch plug. and it went all back in easy. double checked all plugs.

    right now im trying to read a users post on how to get tech stream working but its a bunch of crap...... Im pushing this thing outside where it can sit out of the way i guess.


    I dont understand by chnageing the abs pump this prius will not start up green in ready mode. A tech said there is something else going on..... car was fine prior i could drive it with bad brakes. now orange safe mode.....

    Just went to try Toyota tech stream again. After downloading old Java driver's.

    Didn't work again. Slam the computer shut. Pulled mini vci. About to walk away car turns on with no lights drives runs and brakes great with no lights .... Explain that..... Cause my head hurts so bad right. Now...

    You could have a glitchy mini-vci, you pulled it and engine starts up, coincidence?
