SOURCE: prius warning light is blinking

This is the security indicator light. Designed to alert potential theives that the alarm is active. It is a L.E.D. lamp, and will not drain the aux battery. Nothing to worry about, this is normal. Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa!

SOURCE: 2003 toyota prius hybrid while driving suddenly

Hi. When you have that particular light on, you need to get the power steering motor checked. This is not something that a non-Toyota service shop can check out. You need to take it to a Toyota dealer. They can check the steering motor system, and diagnose exactly what the issue is. Unfortunatly, there is no other way you can check it, as there is not "pump" on the stweering, it is actually a small motor that runs the steering.

SOURCE: I have a warning light on my 2008 pack 5 PRIUS.

That is the light that tells potential thieves the car has an immobilizer. What you describe is normal operation.

Look in the manual for "immobilizer".

SOURCE: What does it mean warning light TRIANGLE WITH SNOW on TOYOTA PRIUS 20 dashboard

Hello,
There is absolutely nothing wrong with your car. It's actually keeping you safe! If the outside ambient temperature is +37F or lower, your car knows this and gives a warning for possible black ice conditions. Lots of people wonder the same thing, next time it shows the warning, note the outside temp to see if it's below +37F.

I hope this info helps!

I don't know what the warning symbol means on my prius dashboard. I assume it means I need a new battery. Does anyone know?


Your owners manual should have the definition of the symbols.
The battery light usually means the alternator is not charging the engine battery, and the red symbol with the outline of a car next to it is a problem with the hybrid portion of the car.
I would strongly recommend you get it checked out by the dealer or someone experienced with hybrid cars.

Warning lights


On a Prius, when the check engine light comes on it indicates a malfunction in the powertrain control system. You need to have the car scanned for codes to see where the fault lies. The red triangle lights because the check engine light is on. The VSC is disabled when the check engine light is on and that light comes on.
Start with having the car scanned.

What does it mean when a waning sign comes up with a picture of a car & an explaination mark? and also a triangle with an explaination mark, both at the same time??


The Prius has electric power steering. The "PS" in a rectangle means that the computer has detected a problem there. The red triangle with an explanation mark means that the computer has detected a problem with the Hybrid System. Usually it is accompanied by red symbol of an automobile. In any case you should take the car to a dealer who can read the diagnostic codes from the computer and determine the cause of the problem.
