Question about 2008 Toyota Prius

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Toyota Prius which failed to apply brakes at all when I was leaving a parking lot at a very low speed. Although I pressed the pedal as hard as possible, the car did not slow down at all, resulting in my hitting another car broadside. Is this a problem with the computer controlling the brakes?

My 2008 prius abs and brake light came on and the the brakes became very hard and constant beep noise, so how to fix it as its really irritating continuous noise beep.


The ABS system is in need of immediate service. The hard pedal is the ABS/Hydraulics malfunctioning and beeping to let you know. Could be a sensor or module maybe a wiring/connection issue but have it serviced ASAP . A bad vacuum supply to the booster or booster diaphragm can also cause a hard pedal and any could light the warning light.

How do i adjust the brake pedal on my 2007 Toyota Prius


your rear brakes are shot as they are the tightest
the fronts should grab hard when you press very hard
if they are mushy you need brakes bad
you should fell very comfortable that you have great brakes.
when you press the pedal it should feel strong after 1inch of play
mush means your gonna die or kills someone.
have your brakes bled as a service this will allow them to test them for you at same time . thats the limit you can adjust brakes.

Gear noise left front 2008 prius sound like a tire rubbing against a plastic fender but it is not and the faster you go the louder it gets . Even worse when you steer to the right. And quite to the left.


It's most likely a bad left front wheel bearing or possible tire noise, switch the left front tire with the rear tire and see if the noise changes. If not have the wheel bearing checked, it may need to be replaced.

2008 rav-4 toyota brake pedal continues to go down after you stop while holding the brake pedal at a red light.


If you own a Toyota with (BA) Brake Assist, it may be out of adjustment. It is adjustable on the 2010 Highlander and I would guess that it might be adjustable on your Toyota vehicle as well. (Assuming this is actually your problem, you have had it checked out by your service department and they said there is nothing wrong or that it was normal.) If the brake assist is out of adjustment it may be coming on too soon or when minimal brake pressure is applied. This causes a long brake pedal (brake fade or the pedal travels longer than normal before resistance is felt) and/or jerky brakes. As far as the Hill Climb Assist or DSC, this feature is activated when the brakes are applied after the vehicle has come to a stop and then you continue to press harder on the brakes for a couple more seconds. It also comes on if you drive with two feet. If you have your foot on the brake and you press slightly on the accelerator (when the vehicle is completely stopped), the DSC will come on and you will hear the chirp.
