    That was it. Thanks. Started rough for about 3 seconds then turned off. Tried again and smoothed out for about 5 seconds then turned off. Now it won't start at all

    Okay jump started battery. Put it in maintenance mode it starts up and sounds smooth for about three to four seconds and then stops instantly

    Check for codes. Check electrical plug in on TB, check map sensor plug.

    I think battery is low. I put it in maintenance mode and won't do anything when I push button. Do hybrid batteries have anything to do with car starting in maintenance mode?

    The hv battery has everything to do with actually starting the gas engine. The system uses one of its motor generators to spin the engine.

    Spoke too soon,!
    Two problems. Hose from blocked twisted and kinked about half closed. Egr sitting right on top of temp sensor putting pressure on wires or my solder job sucked!! Gonna have to remove a bunch of stuff just to fix hose. Damn!! Should have used galvanized pipe instead of coupler from 16 motor! If I have to resolder I'm gonna really be screwed!

    You'll prevail!

    Don't pressure wash after, don't tempt fate!

    Could the 12 v battery be dead. If I change it will it run car enough to charge hybrid?

    If the 12v was dead, you wouldn’t get the message on the dash. Pull the codes and find out what it has stored.
