Make sure you are stepping on the brake petal when you push the start button or it won't start up.

The flashing key-inside-a-car means the anti-theft system is working properly. On page 84 of the 2009 Prius owners manual, the explanation indicates that a flashing key-inside-a-car is normal, and is desired. It should extinguish when the automobile is operating. It may be distracting, but it's a good thing!!

I had a wire connector on the front of the engine that had so much tension, the wires broke. I didn't notice until a wet day when the car wouldn't start (and the Check Engine light was on). (The error code was related to an Emissions error.) The connector is located on the engine, front, just left of center. Hope this helps!

you should take the care to the dealer while it's still under warranty, since electronic stuffs are very expensive now a day

SOURCE: the van won't start.
You need to at the very least charge the battery, and worst case, yo need to replace it-a digital voltage meter (they cost $15) can be used to measure voltage, it needs to be at least 12.4 volts, engine off. If it is lower, get someone to remove it, and take it to a commercial auto parts store who will charge it for free, so that they can load test it to see if it is viable.

If the smart key battery gets low to where it won't start the car you can hold the smart key with the logo facing the start button close to the button then push it to start the engine.
