SOURCE: 2009 prius battery dead (we think). No lights, very dim check eng

Yes you can slowly charge the battery in the truck,but make sure the battery is disconnected first,make sure you unhook the neg first then the positive,and when reinstalling it hook the positive back up first the the negative you want absolutely no sparks.I have also had to jump start these vehicles at that battery and had the owners drive them 50+ miles and they were fine after that.For those cars it is recommended that they have to be driven or started for a length of time every day or two.I would call your local Toyota dealer and find out for sure.

SOURCE: I just bought a 2006

the tail light issue could be just bad bulbs, check them with a meter ,, also, check the sockets for power to each contact point,, normally if the brake lights and flashers are working, the tail lights should too,, as far as the dash lights have you installed an after market stereo? If so a common problem is a wrong wire got grounded,The harness from the car to the factory radio has a wire for the dash lights that shows up as ground with the light off. When the lights are on the wire is 12V+. Check to see if you connected the ground from the new stereo to this wire. The radio will work perfect but everytime you turn thr park light on the fuse will blow...and the radio will continue to work. There should be a ground wire in the harness as well, ensure you connect the ground from the new stereo to this wire. there is a 15 amp fuse that blows, check them with a meter rather than by sight

SOURCE: What does the warning signal PS in toyota prius means?

PS sign indicates problem with power steering. most likely is has electrically assisted steering and needs attention. may want to contact the dealer to make sure it is not under a recall before pursuing any further. the Prius cars have had alot of problems recently.

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.

It's the turn signal switch behind the wheel down the column. You'll need to pull the steering wheel off to get to it. Very common to go out. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XUjOumBkISo

No interior lights come on when doors are opened. Very dim instrument panel lights.


theres probably a switch off to the left of the steering wheel (probably some sort of wheel looking switch for the brightness)

you could have a dimmer switch problem that may need an adjustment or replacement.do you hear the switch click when you try to change from high to low,if not than these could be the problem.the switch is located on the top of the steering colume and the base of the colume under the dash.if you work the dimmer switch on the colume and put your hand on the colume under the dash you should be able to feel the rod that pushes on the switch.follow the rod down and it will go to the dimmer switch.there are 2 5/16 bolts that hold it in place that if you loosen them and push the switch up towards the steering wheel it will move it so the rod won`t have to move as far to change from low to high.if this is not the problem and you don`t hear a click then its usually a switch replacement.

Ford ranger 1998. no illumination readout for channels and clock.other lights work on radio.iS THIS REPAIRABLE?


Please don't take this as an insult, but have you adjusted the dim switch that you can adjust the brightness of your dash lights? I have a wheel on my dash that you can turn up or down the brightness and right after I get to the brightest is turns on the dome light. Are you sure this is not your issue?

Good Luck

Yes dim the light panel. Their should be a small knob somewhere on the dash on the left of the steering wheel that you turn to increase or decrease the brightness of the instrument panel.

Digital dash very dim


There should be an adjustable dial for the brightness somewhere around the steering wheel dash area...it's probably turned way down and just needs to be set to the preffered brightness.
