Question about 2003 Toyota Prius
My 2003 warning light frequently goes on after going down a long hill. The dealer has tested, and thinks that it is related to the traction battery being overcharged or overheated after a long hill. Doesn't seem to affect performance and the the problem clears up after turning the car on and off several times. If you have no power when you accellerate, it suggests that the electric motor has cut out some how, until the problem is cleared up. Would be interested in finding out what your solution was.

I had the same problem. I unplugged the relays from the fuse/relay box under the bonnet. (Top left side) and replaced them. The problem disappeared. (2001 Prius 109,000 miles)

I had the same problem. I removed the relays from the fusebox under the bonnet/hood (top left side) and then replaced them. All working OK now. Sometimes I have had a problem when I start the car (especially after rainy day) the petrol engine immediately dies and I can only drive in electric. I have found that if I turn the ignition off and then restart it and immediately pump the accelerator it makes the engine run OK. Hope this helps.

Hello. Welcome to FIxYa. Please allow us to assist you.
The ( ! ) light is your Low TIre Pressure warning light. This indicates that you have a low tire, or combination of tires that are not at the factory specified inflation presure..
We would recommend that you get the tire pressures inflated to the factory specs; the specs are on the driver side door opening area
