Question about 2007 Toyota Prius Hybrid

How do i change the battery in my 2007 prius remote

I have 2 remote's for my 2007 Prius. One works and the other doesn't lock, unlock or set off the alarm, however, when I insert it into the dash and press the start button the car starts up. I noticed that on the remote that works, a red light comes on when I press the buttons. The red light (upper right hand corner) does not come on when buttons are pushed using the remote that doesn't work. Whats wrong?

With your thumb on the Toyota logo gently press the same switch that you used toremove the key while sliding the back plate up. Remove the four screws to get access to the battery. Replace the battery with a fresh CR2032 battery. Put everything back together by lining up the hinges on the fob and the backplate.

SOURCE: The car alarm keeps going off in my 2006 Toyota

Hi,

Something you need to be aware of here is that the factory alarm on your prius only detects doors, this meaning if any of the 4 doors, the hood or the back hatch are opened then it detects this and monitors the door positions, if the alarm is armed and a door is either unlocked or opened unauthorized then it sets this alarm off. You can jump on the roof or ram the car with a dump truck and it will not set the alarm off, the factory alarm does NOT detect impact, it only detects door lock/unlock and door open/close. The only way this alarm will go off (other then if you press the red panic button on the remote) is if a door is either unlocked or opened without the use of a key/remote.
The door entry switches would need to be played around with here and a scan tool with data lists are needed, I have seen some cases where the bolt that holds the door switch to the body is loose and causes this.
The Factory Security system has many customizable features that can be turned on or off or adjusted. The Dealer has the ability to do this for you. I would first have them diagnose why it is setting prematurely. Perhaps the sensitivity is set too high. Have them make the adjustments and see how it goes.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: PROGRAM PRIUS GARAGE DOOR

There was a minor change for mine to work.. see below..

- you must park your Prius close to the gate opener, leaving it running (obviously not in the way of the gate closing)
- Hold the button the the mirror and then push your garage door remote button and hold until the light on the mirror starts to flasyh fast. THIS programs the button on the mirror, but not the garage opener - yet (this was key for me)
- locate the "learning button" on the opener itself
- press the "learning button" on your gate opener and then get back into the Prius within 30 seconds (more time than it sounds) and press the SAME Homelink button you just programmed above. I don't recall how long I held the pre-programmed button, but the light will flash as I recall.
- Then, when working the garage door, you may need to hold the mirror button for a good second for it to work - but I had tried for months to get mine to work, and finally after reading many posts, the above sequence worked on my 2008 Prius with my Lift Master, Security + rolling codes garage opener.

Just - program the button on the mirror with your remote FIRST.. the garage opener will not work.. then use the Learn button on the garage opener and the SAME BUTTON you just programmed.. and it worked great for me. Not programming the mirror button first will not work. Using only the Learn button will not work. You must program the mirror first with the remote, then use the learn button and the SAME button on the mirror. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2002 toyota prius warning light - car with exclamation mark

The light that looks like a car with an exclamation mark in the middle of it is the HYBRID WARNING light (see diagram below) You must scn the onboard computer network to determine why this light is coming on. You also need to scan your computer system to find out why the engine keeps dying. If the hybrid batteries are discharged, they must be properly recharged to prevent serious damage.

CAUTION: Read ALL service and warning lables in the engine compartment before attempting ANY type of service on a hybrid vehicle. The wiring harnesses that have ORANGE connectors are HIGH VOLTAGE connectors and can cause serious injury or death.

DO NOT touch any wiring harness or component that has a HIGH VOLTAGE warning label on it.

My recommendation is to tow the vehicle to a qualified hybrid repair center (preferably the dealer) and get it properly diagnosed and repaired. The high-tech, high voltage systems in this vehicle is nothing for anyone but a trained, certified technician to be messing with.

My Prius will not lock with remote control. Locks apply and reopen immediately in my prius


Check for one of the door-open switches to be misadjusted. If the door ajar lamp is lit, the remote locking system will not work. Also check that a second key-fob is not inside the car. The smart locking system will not allow you to accidentally lock the key fob inside the car and will cycle the lock back to the unlocked position immediately if the fob is sensed by the inside-the-car sensor(s).

2007 Prius 12V axillary battery drains if parked for more than 48 hours. Fuse number 39 has started failing at times and seems related to the battery drain issue.


1. When you attempted to jumpstart the car, how likely is it that you reversed the polarity of the battery cables?
2. Based upon your description, this sounds likely to me. Therefore:
3. Check for blown fuses. In particular check the 15A DOME and 10A ETCS fuses. Check means that you do not just rely upon visual inspection, but use a digital multimeter to measure resistance across each fuse. Also, look at the fusible link assembly which is a 5" long plastic box with clear cover, located in the main relay/fuse box next to the inverter. You are looking for a blown link at the 100A DC/DC position.
4. If you found blown fuses per #3, then it is highly likely you botched the jumpstart. In that case you need to inspect for other blown fuses besides those listed in #3.
5. Once you are 100% sure that no blown fuses exist, try to make the Prius READY. If you cannot, then tow the car to your local Toyota dealer for assistance. It may be necessary to replace the inverter which is easily damaged with a botched jumpstart.
6. Press ******* the brake pedal while you are trying to make the Prius READY.

Good luck.

My Prius 2006 will not start with the remote not in the key hole.


I had the same problem with 2007 Prius.
Before doing the resetting procedure, look under the steering wheel and see if there is a "key" button. Mine had been pushed in,inadvertently during an inspection, which immobilized the "smart" operation. Simply pushing the button solved the problem.
