well could be the cable is dry and sticking but 1st check the lock lever. have someone pull the hood release. while they car pulling it make sure the hood lock is not in the lock position. if it is while they are pulling the release grab the hook on the lock and pull it to the open position. A quick shot with oil once a year helps it stay loose also. Check on the body along where the hood closes and make sure you didnt leave any tools there. It happens to the best of us. Working on your car under the hood, put a tool of old part down the forget its there. also look on top of the engine for tools, parts etc.
Hope this helps, God Bless :O)
I believe it's your clutch. If you can shift gears okay with the engine off, but you cannot shift gears with the engine running, (the gear shifter only grinds when trying to shift into first?) then your clutch has worn out. To replace a clutch, the transaxle has to be first removed from the car. I'm afraid you will have to have it towed to a shop or garage.
Take it to Autozone and let them check it to see what code shows up. They wont clear it for you, but you can do it your self by disconnecting the negitive battery cable and reconnect it after 30 minutes.
hows your battery?,for the engine, not the electric motor,Prius,normally dont have any quirky issues with electrics,and behave normally if the car batery is flat,ie...it will behave like any other car if the normal battery is flat or old,check by jumping,(fuse box under hood has terminal for + and put neg(black) on suspension bolt ) 3 each strut top.That should work to see if thats your problem
I'm not sure about that. I'm assuming that you've checked the fuse. There may be a circuit breaker for the top operation as well, and that may have blown (those are under the hood usually, or under the dash on the driver's side). Have you tried cycling the ignition a few times, or maybe a 30 minute disconnect on the battery? That usually puts the car's computers into relearn mode. I'm just throwing out ideas here since I've never dealt with this before, but they're worth trying.
