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

    The starting battery sounds like it is dying. You can get a replacement battery either through Toyota or auto store. I got a gel battery, which is supposed to last longer.

How to disable Prius back up beep

This is a pretty easy fix.

1. Keep you foot on the break and turn the car on.
2. Press the odometer/trip button until your dash displays the odometer mileage.
3. Turn the car off and while keeping your foot on the break, restart the car by pressing the on button.
4. Immediately press and hold down the Odometer/trip button for at least 10 seconds.
5. While still holding down the Odometer/trip button put the car in reverse. You will hear the reverse beeping. Then push the park button.
6. You can now release the Odometer/trip button and if you keep pushing the button you can toggle the beep to come on or turn off by looking on your dash. It should say "b-on" or "b-off".
7. Toggle it to the "b-off" setting and put your car in reverse and that annoying beep should be turned off.

Where is the fog light switch located on prius 08

I'm assuming that you have the factory fog lights on a NHW20 (2004-2009) Prius. In the US 2004 Owner's Manual, it is listed in Section 2-4, "Operation of Instruments and Controls,""Lights, Wipers and Defogger,""Front Fog Lights,"

My 2008 prius won't start when the button is pushed. It only starts when the key is inserted.

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