He was able to apply the brakes in order to stop the vehicle. In retrospect, this has happened on at least 4 occasions since December 24, 2009 and I just assumed that during the bout with my injured leg that I was not adequately placing enough force on the parking brake. When I released the parking brake and let off the brake pedal I didn't know the car was stuck in neutral. In my opinion this is nothing short of miraculous! Fun fact: a fully charged 12V battery that is not currently being charged should actually measure 12. Keeping the electronics running while the car is parked is the main load on the 12 volt battery.
I don' t know of any world in which a car moving on its own while in park is normal. When the ignition was turned back on the power returned to the accelerator and we continued to the Toyota service center without further incident. The manual makes it appear that 1 this lever is easy to find and 2 you can pull it up. However, accessing the 12 volt battery in the rear trunk is easy. Luckily, I was able to stop before damage to propert or human injury occurred. The coil wire may corrode at the scratched portion. Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead.
First try only the malfunction indicator lamp went on. I am lost and I love the car and would love it more if Toyota did something about this 12 V battery not staying charged more than 8 days if the car is not used. It may have been due to a loose oil pressure sensor. . Does it have an aftermarket stereo for example? Finally, after all the tinkering for 15 minutes, my car finally turned off.
I felt the car was getting a bit sluguish after the lights came on and then noticed the mpg started to go down. Toyota headquarter is standing behind the date on their warranty. Any way to turn that light off easily? They are aware of the complaint. Went past gate tried to break and couldn't stop tell I floored the break petal. It's bad enough that you got into your Toyota Prius, pressed the Power button, and nothing happened.
Pull on that fabric tab to open the toolbox lid. The nearest dealership or mechanic that would know anything about a Prius is 2 hours away. I open and closed my door without success. The culprit is most often a bad or low charged 12v Auxiliary battery located in the right rear on the trunk. Parking Brake problem 3 My 2010 Toyota Prius would not start after a brief 45 minute lunch with friends. There's a jump starting block described in the owner's manual, and it is under the hood. I powered it on then tried to put it in drive.
I applied and re-applied my parking brake without success. I had two coworkers in the car with me; they got out and pushed the car out of the way to a flat location. But should this happen so easily?? Elected to try to get it patched or welded instead. This had almost caused me an accident by running into the back end of another car. This is a pretty good tutorial.
Then the rivet will be easy to remove. I stopped the car on the ramp, turned the engine off and restarted it. If your battery will not take a charge is is bad. They even provided a rental car. You can check the state of charge of the high voltage battery by looking at the Energy Monitor screen. I both heard the sound of the motor engaging and visually processed that the car was moving.
I can remember the exact date it started. I did have it towed in the 85 miles to the dealer. This is a switch that won't let the vehicle start if it isn't in neutral or park. I don't want to push my luck again. Headlights did not come back on but we were able to use the high beams.
