This system is computer controlled so you must have the dealer test it with a special scanner to determine the cause of this.

SOURCE: Will not go in reverse.

Sounds like an internal trans problem,but first,all of the external diagnostic checks need to be performed.Check fluid level,scan for diagnostic trouble codes,look at clutch volume indexes in the data stream,and also look at the input and output speed sensors to make sure they are functioning,as well as the command gear from the computer,and the PRNDL switch.The big tip thats an internal problem is the Reverse problem.Reverse is purely mechanical and hydraulic controls.Electronic malfunctions usually don't affect Reverse gear.

SOURCE: car wont start

well i don't know if this applies to the prism, but let me give you my own experience. I had a Toyoto Camry. Every morning, especially in the wintertime, i experienced the same "clicking noise" In the beginning, i couldn't permanent fix, but what i did to get the car started was to pump the gas pedal, and then usually it would start.

Later, I went into get it serviced, and they said that the battery was getting old, and needed replacing. I replaced it, and the problems went away.

SOURCE: car won't go in reverse

If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.

Transmission won't shift out of 1st and service engine light comes on. goes in reverse and park. goes in drive , just will not shift.

Hi Cindy, As the engine check light is coming it is indicating a problem. Have a diagnostic scan carried out and let your technician determine the actual fault. It could be something to do with the state of engine tune or a defective speed sensor, but may also be a problem with the gearbox. Regards John

Engine failure

When a catalytic converter is coming apart on the inside, it can restrict air flow and power, and it usually happens or gets worse when the vehicle has been running long enough to generate a lot of heat. Once it cools down, the symptoms can completely go away until you begin to drive it again. It's one possibility.

99 mercedes-bens c-230 wont shift out of drive

There is a safety device that operates off of the brake pedal that maybe is not working properly. When shifting transmission depress brake pedal. Try this, depress brake pedal as far as it goes, turn key to off position as if you are goig to remove, while pressing on brake try shifting transmission to park. I hope this helps.

Where do you check the transmission fluid

It's synthetic fluid and there is no dipstick , transmission sealed.
How to check fluid:
Warm up engine , raise vehicle on the lift with engine runing on park position , unscrew drain plug (don't warry it has tube in there ), if you see fluid coming out for 10-15 sec.- level is ok.
If nothing coming out - level is low.
There is a filler tube in front of the transmission with the red cap and red plustic sealing clamp.
If you able to take clamp out without braking it , you can reuse it after.
Fill transmission through filler tube with engine runing
and trany on park position , till fluid starts runing from drain plug , reinstall drain plug , reseal filler tube.

2003 Prius Hybrid System Warning Light

My Toyota Prius hybrid warning light has come on three times in eight years. If I turn the car off for 20 minutes, the hybrid light is off but the check engine light is on. After a while, the check engine light goes off. I think this problem is related to moisture somehow entering the hybrid vent on the driver's side. All three times this has happened, the weather was wet. Kevin Cardiff
