Question about Toyota Prius
It keeps draining the start battry
SOURCE: Toyota Prius starting problem
There's a known problem with the early Toyota Prius (2001 - 2003), when running the engine for a long period of time without moving or when the car is driven only for short trips (short city driving), the Prius might not start.
You have to change the original battery with a 356 CCA which is bigger because the battery is bigger you also have to change what is holding it into place.

your owners manual should show all of the symbols and what they mean.I tried to get one to look at it but no luck...they should be in the manual though

Hi. When you have that particular light on, you need to get the power steering motor checked. This is not something that a non-Toyota service shop can check out. You need to take it to a Toyota dealer. They can check the steering motor system, and diagnose exactly what the issue is. Unfortunatly, there is no other way you can check it, as there is not "pump" on the stweering, it is actually a small motor that runs the steering.

On this would be alot easier on a lift, on the front of the trany theres a fill and drain plug,the top one is the fill, remove the plug and the trany oil should be 0- 5 mm from fill hole, MAKE SURE CAR IS LEVEL!, add if needed, is fluid is needed have car checked for leaks, when installing plug replace gasket with new one and torque to 29 ft lbs.hope this helps,note; make sure to use toyota fluid type ws only.
