Orange triangle sign is called master warning light. When this happens get your car be scanned with the help of diagnostic computer to get to know the problem in any of the systems.

This the hybrid master warning light, which means the system has detected a malfunction, there are many causes that turn the light on, there are about 24 computers involved, the best advise I can come up with is that you have the toyota dealer check this and diagnose it, this may also still be under the powertrain or hybrid vehicle warranty

SOURCE: 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 toyota prius 2008 suddenly start showing little red triangle and green car display on the battery diagram gone red from green please any body knows about it..


I had the same problem, Check the inverter coolant pump.
Most probably , the pump must be not working.
How to check the coolant pump?
Closer to the inverter , there is clear plastic bottle filled with red colour solution.
Now open the lid while on start and check whether the water is moving.
If the water is not moving , then definitly the solution is to replace the coolant water pump.
I hope you can correct it.
good luck.

A warning light appear with my hibrid prius


I have same engine problem. Triangle signal pop up after I try to start my Prius with a still wet air filter to the car . The engine just run for less than 30 sec. and stopped with the triangle signe pop up. I think this sign will pop up whenever the engine detect certain major function failure. For my case, it was due to retricted air supply to the engine. I have tried Lovebytes suggestion and the triangle sign disappeared with a dry clean filter. My Prius is running good now. This warnig sign may have other implications. Once you try this method and sign still come on. You need to have your car check by garage.
Bellow attach is the answer from Lovebites

What does it mean when a waning sign comes up with a picture of a car & an explaination mark? and also a triangle with an explaination mark, both at the same time??


The Prius has electric power steering. The "PS" in a rectangle means that the computer has detected a problem there. The red triangle with an explanation mark means that the computer has detected a problem with the Hybrid System. Usually it is accompanied by red symbol of an automobile. In any case you should take the car to a dealer who can read the diagnostic codes from the computer and determine the cause of the problem.

You will need to have this light reset with a scan tool, it is stored in a non-volatile (stays in memory with or without battery voltage) memory. Have the dealer check the cause, better than a tow bill.

2003 Prius Hybrid System Warning Light


My Toyota Prius hybrid warning light has come on three times in eight years. If I turn the car off for 20 minutes, the hybrid light is off but the check engine light is on. After a while, the check engine light goes off. I think this problem is related to moisture somehow entering the hybrid vent on the driver's side. All three times this has happened, the weather was wet. Kevin Cardiff
