    I don't know if this was ever posted. I couldn't find any reference in a search.

    Toyota has directions for getting into diagnostic model in the Prius manual.

    Also, while looking through the manual (on CD) I discovered that there is an in-line antenna amp in the headliner just above the rear passenger door.

    If you just want the engine to idle, you don't really need this -- push
    the go-pedal while powered up in normal PARK, and the engine lights
    and revs a little. If you brake+shift to N *while* it's running,
    it will settle back down to idle and stay running. So for starting,
    revving up, and idling, the normal functionality of the car may be
    completely sufficient.
