    For hybrid cooling parts. Sounds to be the fan. Atleast by guessing.
    I have a V and still no clue where mine is. And I'm sure it needs cleaning.

    Just a follow up to say thanks, and to confirmed that was the issue. Just a dirty fan. It was easy to clean out, and the message hasn't returned. I can sleep easily at night. Thanks all for the help. This would have been so much easier if I had just taken a snapshot of the message to begin with.

    Thanks for the update. You posted this message and I've seen it a few other times on the forums since... so it's good to know the fix. :D

    The battery cooling system is just the vent fan and grill. Clean the grill and check to see if the fan is working. If the grill is clogged cleaning it out will solve the problem. You may need to get the trouble code cleared but it may clear itself once you clean the fan and grill.
