    i have a beat up 2007 Prius that seems to suddenly be exhibiting the same symptoms.

    I'm driving down the road, i hit a hard or light bump, and the entire dash seems to reboot. my car comes back in Park and i have to lightly hit my brakes, and move it into Neutral.

    If I'm holding the shifter in Drive my car will someone's stay in Drive. Usually I have to stop the car turn it off and on before i can drive it again.

    what could i bump or just that would cause my dash to reboot or reset?

    Look for a loose 12V battery cable.

    it wasn't even screwed on - just pushed up against the boat screw. 2 days and no problem. like my second dog; it's fixed.
