Try running the air conditioning, set the temp to 'LO'. Usually keeps it running for a short time at least.

After 8 years of the engine of my 2006 Toyota Prius shutting off when I stop at a red light or any other stopping it has now started stay on anytime I stop. Why would this be happening?


The engine turns on to keep the charge in the battery pack up. Your battery pack is nearing it's end of life expectancy and will need to be replaced at some point. That is why the engine is running more than it used to, the battery pack just can't hold a charge like it used to and the computer is detecting this, thus turning on the engine to keep you going. there is always a possibility that one of the controllers that monitors the battery is giving a false reading and turning on the engine. Unfortunately, it's the drawback to having a hybrid car. The battery pack isn't cheap, but you can find them at better prices if you shop around instead of relying on the dealer to replace it. You might be able to get more specific information if you visit a forum specifically for Hybrids, or in particular the Prius.

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!

My car is shutting off when i stop at stop lights or just stop in traffic. What could be the problem?I drive a Lancer 2002


It sounds like your EGR system is malfunctioning. EGR or Exaust Gas Recirculation is only supposed to be active when your on the throttle or driving down the road. If your EGR system is allowing any amount of exaust gas past it at idle, then it can cause very harsh idle or cause the car to die.

2003 Prius sometimes will not start, engine light comes on. Removing key from ignition, reinserting key, & turning wheel till it locks will then allow the car to start. Engine light stays on for a


I had a wire connector on the front of the engine that had so much tension, the wires broke. I didn't notice until a wet day when the car wouldn't start (and the Check Engine light was on). (The error code was related to an Emissions error.) The connector is located on the engine, front, just left of center. Hope this helps!

A warning light appear with my hibrid prius


I have same engine problem. Triangle signal pop up after I try to start my Prius with a still wet air filter to the car . The engine just run for less than 30 sec. and stopped with the triangle signe pop up. I think this sign will pop up whenever the engine detect certain major function failure. For my case, it was due to retricted air supply to the engine. I have tried Lovebytes suggestion and the triangle sign disappeared with a dry clean filter. My Prius is running good now. This warnig sign may have other implications. Once you try this method and sign still come on. You need to have your car check by garage.
Bellow attach is the answer from Lovebites
