    A couple of days ago my 2015 Prius C started showing me the traction console light stuck on, the next day when I started my car up the touch screen was dead, the overhead lights wouldn't work, bluetooth wasn't on, the OBD2 seems to be off (or at least Bouncie isn't working normally) and cruise control throws an error.

    Other than that, the car seems to be running roughly as usual for all the most important parts, even the temperature sensor and climate controls are running normally.

    I'm not good with cars but my budget is really limited after the last year and a half, I was hoping it might be something simple but I don't know where to begin. Could someone point me in the right direction to start looking or the problem or is this absolutely mechanic only thing?

    Thanks, I can troubleshoot computer all day but add an engine and wheels and I'm a bit hopeless ‍♀️

    Buy one of these and use Dr. Prius app to read error codes: Hybrid battery diagnostic and repair tool for Toyota and Lexus Once we know error codes we can explain repairs. In meantime if you disconnect 12v for a few minutes it will reset everything and you might gets some miles in before lights come back on.
