could be a few things, this must be a hybrid, 1st make sure all the tires are inflated properly, the tire pressure will be stamped on the side of the tire, also if it a hybrid it has regentave breaking system which means the more you use the brakes the more power is returned to the battery system, also the higher the alcohol content in the fuel you buy the lower the fuel mileage, what i recommend is to fill the car with the best fuel you can get NO ALCOHOL so you can get a base line on the fuel mileage then try other brands and grades to see which ones give you the best mileage.

Then yiou will be without a screen. The dealer is the only one that can fix this for you.

You have to smash or cut off the plastic knob, and then use a tool to take out the bolt.

Remember though to first let the air out of the tyre before you try this.
It is likely that the tyre was inflated after the bolt had been screwed in, thus the air pressure actually caused the tyre to widen and grip the securing bolt too tightly.

Please refer to the owners manmual on this as well as reading what is below.
Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module

It's not possible to obtain stereo Bluetooth for the 2008 Prius. Toyota did not make this possible until the 2010 model with the navigation package. Actually, if your iPhone 4 is jailbroken, there is a complicated way to trick the car into thinking your music is actually a phone call, and it will force play the music over the speakers as such. But the quality is terrible (mono, not stereo). You're much better off sticking to the AUX cable, even though it does get annoying to plug in every time you drive.

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.
