The car had Castrol oil in it when I bought
It's not necessary to stay with the Castrol brand for the life of the car, although, some technicians say that it's good to stay with the same brand to reduce sludge.
Just make sure the viscosity is right for the weather conditions when you have the oil and filter changed (and lube).
I have my oil changed at Walmart or Sears and I just ask for their Supertech or featured oil, and my Cadillacs seem to run fine on that oil.
Good luck on your oil changes.

When the car is turned
I think you'll find it has always been doing it, but you may not have noticed.
It is perfectly normal and is nothing to worry about. Just means that the immobiliser system is working

Warning light on 2005 prius is on...what might
Hello. The warning light indicates that one or more trouble codes can be read by doing a scan of your vehicle's computer. AAMCO repair shops and some auto parts stores now do these scans for free. Otherwise, a dealership will charge $50 and up. Many times, the only problem is a faulty report or a faulty sensor as opposed to a real issue. When you have the scan be sure to tell the technician to clear and reset your computer. This will remove the warning light, that way if it appears again you know you have an issue. Joe

Can I drive my car home ( 50 miles) with the brake
You sure can, but you might be chancing creating a life threatening situation. That light will go on when the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir gets low, as it does eventually even on normal cars. Check the level of the brake fluid. It is probably low, so got some more fluid from Checkers, Auto Zone, or whoever, and fill it to the 'full' level. The light probably will go out. If it loses more fluid on a frequent basis you have a leak somewhere and have to take it to a competent shop and have them find it.
Best of luck!
