Question about 2006 Toyota Prius

1 Answer

Dash lights go off when head lights are turned on.

2006 Toyota Prius dash lights go off when the head lights are turned on manually or automatically. Can it be a particular fuse or should I send it back to the dealer for repairs? Your help is much appreciated.

    Hello
    Many thanks for your suggestion. I will have to wait until night fall as it seems to work okay now even when I test the lights, auto lights etc. My wife has taken my car twice now, both times at night, because of this dash problem with her car, so it could be a simple matter of what you are suggesting. I personally have not seen this problem so many thanks again for taking the time to respond to me.
    John

    Well ---- your suggestion appears to have been the problem...DOH!
    That would have been embarrassing to take the care to the dealership for that one.... :)
    Many thanks again.

Your car is perfectly fine. Your dash dimmer is turned all the way down. Your dash dimmer automatically turns on with your headlights. You need to locate your dash dimmer and turn it up.( will be easy to locate with owners manual).

How to turn off passenger side airbag on 2012 toyota prius


Most cars have a slotted switch prominently on the dash to turn it on, off or on an automatic setting (in which it will not deploy in a frontal crash unless there is a certain amount of weight present in the passenger seat measured by sensors). Does your Prius not have that feature? It should, but if not, get out the manual and go to the tab on airbags. If it CAN be turned off, the manual will tell you how to do it. Perhaps it can't be turned off, although that seems counter intuitive to me. I suppose you could isolate which fuse controls it and simply pull it, but I'd bet doing so will also disable something else too. Why do you wish to disable it to begin with?

Toyota Prius 2007 dash lights are all off??


Not to insult you, but are you sure you haven't unintentionally and without knowing you did so turned the brightness control all the way off? If you haven't, and the fuses are good, seems like a wiring issue.

2006 prius - dash (fuel, speed, etc) is dark. car runs fine. is it a fuse?


This car is a 2006 prius at 182, miles on the clock with stock everything,original transmission and engine.Only routine maintanence done so far.It is used as a cab 24/7.It has a toplight and a taxi meter installed (of course)
Here are my symptoms with the video.
When i start the car,the instrument panel (speedometer,gear panel,fuel gauge) does not light up.
Putting the car in reverse , the backup lights wont turn on and the back up camera wont work.
It has a taxi meter and it gets signals from the transmission,it does not charge the right amount for the distance.A ride that costs around $28 would only be around $10 when this problem occurs.

Tail lights when lights are on do not work. Brake lights and blinkers do work. Where is fuse located for tail lights on 2006 Toyota Prius?


SOME TOYOTAS, HAVE FUSES THAT ARE HIDDEN. ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE DASH THERE IS A LITTLE PULLOUT TRAY IT MAY BE LABELED "STORAGE ONLY" IF IS LIKE THAT GET A FLASHLIGHT & LOOK BEHIND IT YOU MAY SEE FUSES BACK THERE. OTHERWISE, THE TAIL LIGHT FUSE HAS TO BE IN THE PASSENGER FUSEBOX OR UNDER THE HOOD IN THE FUSE/RELAY BOX.

Dash warning light not found in manual - hot to turn it off


The flashing key-inside-a-car means the anti-theft system is working properly. On page 84 of the 2009 Prius owners manual, the explanation indicates that a flashing key-inside-a-car is normal, and is desired. It should extinguish when the automobile is operating. It may be distracting, but it's a good thing!!
