SOURCE: how to change a headlight light bulb on toyota prius 2006?

they are usually changed from inside the engine compartment. you should be able to gain access to the bulb behind each headlight bazel. the socket often has to be turned to remove it. be careful not to touch the new bulb with your fingers as that will shorten it's lifespan. you may have to remove the battery if the burnt out bulb is on that side.

If you want the check engine light to stay off, make sure that the converter is a direct fit, and not a universal. It should work fine then.

YOU REMOVE THE 4 BOLTS BEFORE AND AFTER THE CAT.
ENSURE THE OLD INLET AND OUTLET GASKETS ARE REMOVED AND REPLACED BE FORE INSTALLING THE NEW CAT WITH NEW BOLTS.
ABOUT $800 FOR THE PART AND A HOURS LABOUR.
AN MUFFLER SHOP SHOULD BE ABLE TO INSTALL A UNIVERSAL
CAT FOR LESS.

SOURCE: code P0A93 for toyota PRIUS WHAT IS THE PROBLEM ?

P0A93 is an inverter cooling problem. The inverter is cooled by a dedicated cooling system, which consists of an electric water pump, cooling fan, and radiator. This cooling system is independent of the engine cooling system.The mechanic should check if there is sufficient amount of coolant for the inverter, check if the coolant hose is not bent or clogged, if the water pump / cooling fan motor connections are ok, and of course if both of the cooling fan motors are OK

2006 Subaru Forester with a P420 code. Can this be fixed by replacing a universal converter?


Unfortunately, universal catalytic converters do not have enough oxygen storage available and the code will return quickly if you use them. Asian imports are very touchy about this, Subaru's and Toyota's hate aftermarket universal cats!

06 scion xa po303 misfire code under load


Recently got same code. It's a catalytic converter problem most likely requiring replacement. Everywhere recommends to not go with a generic as they'll only last a year or so and to go with a Toyota original. Cost of total is $1400 from Toyota, around $500 for generics from independent garages. Good news is that Toyota/Scion has 8 year/80,000 mile warranty of catalytic converter so if damage to cat is not user-caused you'll be covered for free. So hurry and call local Toyota dealership/repair for appointment ...

Prius warning lights abs pressure brake


abs concern. abs light. also, red brake light. is this correct? drive axle was replaced. testing for abs codes can lead to a pinpoint test.
once codes are read, there may be a specific area indicated to run tests. since the wheel hub area was where the recent work was performed...i suggest looking at the abs exciter ring for the wheel speed sensor.if the teeth are broken off , and or smashed or flattened. the hub, or the ring attached may need correction. there may also be a speed sensor wire and sensor concern after working in that area. inspect the sensor, its wires, and the connectors that attach it to the wiring. take the result of the code check, pinpoint test, and physical condition of the parts into mind, and decide. report your findings. you will need a good quality DVOM test meter to perform electrical tests. and guided diagnostic from the applicable service manual.

Catalytic Converter Replacement Repair Cost


code p0420 refers to catalytic converter system bank 1 --efficiency below threshold ===causes -- catalytic converter ---wiring---HO2S 2 sensor
The cheapest part to replace is the HO22S sensor so I would do that first. Bump the cat converter soundly with the heal of your hand and if it rattles it needs replacing as it will be cracked internally. Dismiss any tinny rattle as that will be the heat shield loose
The time taken to replace both in an accredited shop will be less than 1 hour so it may pay to shop around and compare prices on the converter and labour costs.

P 0420 code on toyota corolla2004


Hi there:
A code P0420 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Leaded fuel was used where unleaded was called for
  • A damaged or failed oxygen sensor (HO2S)
  • Downstream oxygen sensor (HO2S) wiring damaged or connected improperly
  • The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
  • Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / muffler / exhaust pipe
  • ******** spark timing
  • The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar of readings
  • Leaking fuel injector or high fuel pressure
  • Cylinder misfire
  • Oil contamination

About the possible solutions, some suggested steps for troubleshooting include:
  • Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.
  • Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).
  • Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S), replace if necessary
  • Replace the catalytic converter
Overall probably the biggest mistake vehicles owners make when they have a P0420 code is to simply replace an oxygen sensor (H02S). It is important to do proper diagnosis so you're not wasting money replacing parts unnecessarily.
We strongly recommend that if you need to replace the catalytic converter that you replace it with an OEM unit. Second choice would be a high-quality replacement part. There are many stories in our forums where folks replaced the cat with a cheaper aftermarket one only to have the code return shortly thereafter.

Hope this helps.

This cooling system is independent of the engine cooling system.The mechanic should check if there is sufficient amount of coolant for the inverter, check if the coolant hose is not bent or clogged, if the water pump / cooling fan motor connections are ok, and of course if both of the cooling fan motors are OK.

P3108 is generally loosing communication with the A/C system control module. This can usually be solved by checking the wires and or the converter inverter assembly.
