Question about 2008 Toyota Prius
There are no electronic keys in the car or near the car, but the warning light (car with key inside) continues to flash. The vehicle is in the garage in Park and the power is shut off. I can't find this warning light symbol in the owner's manual. My husband tells me this happens sometimes. Should we be concerned about it? Thank you.
It is not a safety issues . the chip sensor in the car is defective. if it doesnt anoy you dont worry. if the sensor fails to warn you when the key is left inside then you should be concerned.

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)
