2008 Prius, malfunction Indicator Light is on. Why? Possible fixes, costs??

Check your hybrid drive coolant reservoir for coolant level. top off if needed using only Toyota coolant. Also common for the auxiliary water pump to fail. I think there is a recall free replacement. Check with your dealer if your car is included in recall.

Why Pius "initializing" after 12V reconnect?

There are some systems which are kept alive as long as the auxiliary battery is connected. If the battery is disconnected the idle speed control valve learning value will be initialized and symptoms like loud rattle from the hybrid trans axle assembly could be heard.
Always perform the idle speed learning procedure if the auxiliary battery is disconnected for any reason.

Hello, the first thing I would recommend that you buy a repair manual that shows step by step instructions, with illustrations I can't do that here. You'll need some common metric tools and a voltmeter, there are high voltages involved and you will need to wear insulated gloves rated at least to 1000 volts DC to prevent severe injury or possibly death.

The actual replacement is not that difficult:
Disconnect the 12 volt auxiliary battery
disconnect the orange service plug on the hybrid battery and tape the connector on the battery
remove the rear seat and the seat back braces
remove the trunk carpet and the spare tire cover
remove the two orange cables going to the front
measure dc voltage at the terminals where the cables were removed there must be less than 1 volt.
remove the 12 mm bolts that connect the battery to the body including the torx bolt
slide the battery back and have someone help to lift it out.

P3000 and 3004

its a prius. take it in,
lost of things to go wrong with any hybrid, due to huge complexity.
if serious DIY, and feel compelled to get shocked on HV?
then read the FSM buy it ran read all the pages on 3000
and on how not to get shocked and killed. do so , dont guess
study the book.

or go there, first google hit for 3000, read this ?

could it not just be, that you didnt follow the battery swap instructions
in the FSM then trip these/
reset them and see if they come back.

P3004 - Power Cable Malfunction 130 HV Battery Malfunction. When HV battery voltage becomes lower than inverter voltage
131 Power Cable Malfunction. When main fuse is blown out, service plug is disconnected or limiter resistance is cut off
133 HV Battery Malfunction. When inverter voltage sensor is malfunctioning or limiter resistance value increases

I have a 1998 NWH10 Toyota Prius. My problem on Start up.

Have both your battery and alternator inspected. Turn it on, disconnect your negative battery cable, if it dies, you need an alternator, if not, then you may want to test your battery for bad cells.

I briefly disconnected y battery yesterday and

some other garages can diagnose this problem m8 but its not wise as there not used to the system there gonna charge about 70pound to look at it, how old is the car? it might still be under warrenty, it should not have done to much damage though.

It won't start, the lights are dim and I cannot remove the key fob.

is the car battery flat,not the battery pack thats behind the back seat for the hybrid motor,as prius get flat batteries like a normal car if yo leave something on or because its 5 years old,I work for Toyota in Australia and thats usually the only issue but people get stressed because theyre hybrids,but get a good battery dude rehearsed in Prius to change it not backyard eddy

Don't worry yet might just be a service reminder.
Google " 2005 prius warning light " the first page will show a link to where you can find the owners manual that covers all the warning lights.
