Question about 2006 Toyota Prius

1 Answer

Hi. I have a 2006 Toyota Prius. There is a blinking light on the dashboard when the engine is off. The light turns off when the car is started. The light is a car symbol with a vertical line intersecting the roof of the car. The manual indicates this light relates to the electrical system. The manual says to stop the car immedicately if the light comes on during operation of the car, but does not say what to do if the light comes on when the car is turned off. Is this a reminder of a need for regular servicing, or an indication of a problem?

As the prius is a computer controlled car it is best checked out by a toyota dealer.(unless you know someone with a diagnostic computer that can read a prius)could be a number of electrical items but i would not like to guess at ONE.

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.

Look in the manual, there are lots of warning lights on the dashboard of a Prius and you don't say which one it is. But, as the vehicle has 2 engines it could be anything.

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!

I have a 1998 NWH10 Toyota Prius. My problem on Start up.


Have both your battery and alternator inspected. Turn it on, disconnect your negative battery cable, if it dies, you need an alternator, if not, then you may want to test your battery for bad cells.

Dash lights go off when head lights are turned on.


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 change a headlight light bulb on toyota prius 2006?


they are usually changed from inside the engine compartment. you should be able to gain access to the bulb behind each headlight bazel. the socket often has to be turned to remove it. be careful not to touch the new bulb with your fingers as that will shorten it's lifespan. you may have to remove the battery if the burnt out bulb is on that side.
