The Prius has electric power steering. The "PS" in a rectangle means that the computer has detected a problem there. The red triangle with an explanation mark means that the computer has detected a problem with the Hybrid System. Usually it is accompanied by red symbol of an automobile. In any case you should take the car to a dealer who can read the diagnostic codes from the computer and determine the cause of the problem.

What does the triangle with an exclamation mark inside mean


Hi Mark,

On your particular vehicle, this symbol means low traction. Your vehicle is automatically adjusting power output to compensate for low traction. If the road conditions are not significant enough for this low traction to be a reality, then your wheel spin sensor would likely be faulty.

Refer to Section 3-33 of your owner manual.

What are the reasons for the engine management light staying on


There are way too many to list. The main reason it comes on is there is an emission failure of some kind. I assume when you say engine management you mean check engine light. Or the light with the picture of the engine and exclamation mark or a red triangle in the case of a hybrid.

What does the triangle with the arrow round it mean and what does the triangle with the exclamation mark in mean please


The triangle with the arrow around it is for the wheel speed sensor. The triangle with the exclamation point is for tire pressure. Low tire pressure would set both of these lights off.

{: ) The two triangles you saw is for the StabilTtrak system,, sometimes called the traction control indicator. When you see a spanner beside it, it means the system needs servicing.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the StabiliTrak service light does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.
