I got into some pretty frustrating problems with my 08 Prius over the last few months and I would love any advice. It started off when I went out of town and let my then-partner borrow the car. She accidentally left something on and killed the battery--then in trying to jump it, reversed the polarity. So then wouldn't start at all. We replaced the battery, but that didn't fix it, so my partner replaced the 100 amp fuse. Then it worked for awhile, but it died again after a month or so. It took a jump, but started dying regularly, more and more frequently. So now here we are. It won't start with a jump, all that happened after a 15 minute charge was that the dome light was able to come on very dimly. I think it's entirely possible that the fuse was installed wrong, but I'm also pretty nervous it's the hybrid battery. I'm just trying to figure out if it would be worth taking it somewhere, as I already got another vehicle and the prius is over 200,000 miles (not bad I know but lowers the value) and the body's in really rough shape. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!
