Hi,


This is second time i have heard damage to inverter and it's again on prius. This might not be due to an accident.The Prius cannot be driven without a functional inverter water pump without risking inverter overheating and potential damage.

If there is a faulty pump, that might damage the inverter.So, he is almost correct that it's not due to an impact. There are so many other factors to consider and he hit the correct spot.

Any further questions, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

I suggest you have a computerised car diagnostic done to read that exact warning light's code and from there you can find out exactly what is causing this.This way you will save money rather by replacing bits and pieces by trial and error.

The Prius come woth a custom built Li-ion battery and there is no way that you can replace it by yourself. It is better to contact the Service centre to get it done. They will get you the original battery and also complete the replacement within a day. The battery is located in a T-shape structure beneath the driver seat and through the middle of the passenger section.

Can't find thermostat housing and how do I change the thermostat.


By the oil filter upper side, remove 2 nuts and presto, YOU got to really carefully because some of the inverter coolant will be drain in the process, refill both radiator and inverter reservoir, run car for half hour stop car wait an hour until gets call and refill again, do this procedure one more time. Dealer guys do not have to do this procedure because they bleed with the scanner activating electrical water pumps.

Toyota Prius starting problem


There's a known problem with the early Toyota Prius (2001 - 2003), when running the engine for a long period of time without moving or when the car is driven only for short trips (short city driving), the Prius might not start.

You have to change the original battery with a 356 CCA which is bigger because the battery is bigger you also have to change what is holding it into place.
