    Like one month ago i got the message “check hybrid system “
    Same day i got “ P lock malfunction when park “ with a non stop beep
    One week after i got the abs light on and a circled sign and a slip light too
    And the last week t GOT THE STEERING WHEEL LIGHT ON TOO
    SO NOW ITS HARD TO MOVE THE WHEEL
    i take it to different places no one knows what’s wrong with my car
    I take to the dealership to do the diagnostic and they say that they do know i pay 140$
    And they say that i have to pay 470$ for another diagnostic , the say its may
    I find a problem with the water pump and i changed
    And I thought its the engine ECU
    I changed and programmed but its not that the problem
    One of the mechanics told me its maybe one of the ecu

    Yeah. I'm thinking "check that first." Pretty bad dealer, though if they didn't figure that out.

    I have a Mongoose Pro cable. But need to pay $55 to Toyota for the diagnostic software.

    Last time I tore down the Prius v I used that to find my problem when I put it back together. I have a battery tester I can help you test it...

    The pothole is possibly very important information that you should have mentioned in the first place. Which ever wheel(s) hit that hole you should check the surrounding area for electrical wiring damage. Then check fuses as a short may have blown the fuse(s)....
