Top 20 2008 Toyota Prius Questions & Answers

Check your hybrid drive coolant reservoir for coolant level. top off if needed using only Toyota coolant. Also common for the auxiliary water pump to fail. I think there is a recall free replacement. Check with your dealer if your car is included in recall.

Yours may be different but on my 2007 prius I found out that the rattling or clicking type noise came from the dash rubbing against another piece of plastic somewhere up by the windshield. I just lived with it.

the cruise control limits have been exceeded
the rad speed drops going up hill, the transmission shifts , that exceeds the rpm so it drops back the gear s shift again and the cycle is repeated
nothing really wrong , just incorrect driving practice
good practice is to turn of the cruise control when going up hills that puts the control outside parameters for the operation

You will need to remove the touch screen module and have it repaired or replaced, no other solution to this failure.

It would need to have the engine running and have an exhaust leak to cause this, it is an unheard of problem in the Prius. Was the car parked and running when this happened?

1 check the 12 volt battery
i have replaced 3 car batteries on my 2001 Prius, purchased in 2001 15 years ago,
that small battery is the primary battery for all onboard computers and must have 11 volts when starting, I noted a poor response when that battery gets week.
2 check your codes with a scan tool or take it to a shop who will read it for free. Note all codes and write them down
codes that start with P3000 and up may indicate something wrong with the Hybird system, common codes like P3011 - P3019 indicates a faulty battery pack.
once I got a P011 and P013 with the master warning was on. It was time to replace the Hybird HV battery. 188,500 miles
hope this helps

This could be related to the alternator not working as the electric system fails. How does the car run? If it is rough then it could be engine trouble, otherwise alternator or electrical drain.
