I just don't know if all of the parts are necessary. I had mine done right away, even though there was not a problem. Dealer also tested battery and is good. Any body knows any toyota Prius mechanic shop other than Toyota Dealer in Toronto? I'll try driving it around some more so that I can gauge how bad the damage it! Last week I was driving at 50km, as I approached a round about I went to apply the brakes and they did not engage. Further, the 12V battery must be ruled out.
When I park, however, all of the lights except the! Check it again in maintenance mode in the morning and report back numbers i. Locally toyotas response has been there is no problem you are a one off and you just need to pay the money. It is one less nagging worry to have while you are on a 600 mile road trip. While there seems to be a lot of concern as to what happened, because the car is at 200,000 kms and out of warranty, they are saying there is nothing they can do and that this is an isolated case - which I don't believe it is. In your instance, you may want to refer to your owner's manual which will have information on possibly who to contact.
Brake seems harder to stop now. Also, dealer mentioned that i have a recall for the electric water pump, which i decide to put off until the brakes are fixed first. The dealer told me the only recall was an electric water pump, but i put that off untill i get the brakes done first. Last week, while driving on the highway, as I was accelerating past 70 mph, the red warning triangle showed up on the dashboard and I immediately pulled over onto the emergency lane. I bought the 2007 from my dad when he bought a 2010 earlier this year.
They seldom last that long. This system has a sensor signal check function. For the battery, which do you recommend? To find out more or to opt-out, please read our. There's a good chance that your mechanic can read the codes and set the zero point with his Snap On scan tool, if he has the Toyota add-on. Will Toyota be able to do the reprogramming? It was the only light that came on and it was on for less than 5 seconds and then the light went off when I decelerated.
Any Guidence will be greatly appreciated. It has nearly 200,000 km on the clock and is obviously outside of its warranty. I don't believe i am a one off, googling seems to suggest a lot of people are having similar problems. It is usually the actuator that goes bad. Do i need to reprogram it or is it a plug and play? A battery test was done with the results saying the the battery was in good condition. Any advice is much appreciated.
Any advice on my current situation? I paid 115 for the diagnosis fee today. The accelerator was less responsive when the light popped up. I am new to forums not exactly know how to use them, but I need help. What does your brake fluid look like? Right rear wheel is grinding when brakes are applied. I am holding off from paying toyota as twice now i have narrowly avoided serious accidents or worse due to what I perceive is a design fault of the car.
When the brake pedal is depressed, the hydraulic pressure in each wheel cylinder begins to increase and the wheel speed begins to decrease. I had that gut feeling that the dealer was shady too. Let's say there are 800K 2G Prius worldwide. However, if the hydraulic pressure is held down, the braking force acting on the wheel will become too low. I can not see this part anywhere on internet available either new or used. A good hard brake while in neutral now and then to clean things off is sometimes needed on older Prii, especially if the driver has a light braking foot under normal circumstances.
Go back to him and see if he thinks it is the actuator, and if he is willing to put a salvage actuator in there. The battery is original and test ok during the maintenance mode. It shows on the invoice, performed diagnosis. This allows the wheel that was on the verge of locking up to speed up. The car has 114,165 miles on the odometer, a clean CarFax, and has been maintained frequently over the years. I will check the oil, and have the battery replaced in the morning.
Would appreciate any advice or feedback Cheers Mark Sorry to hear about your mishap s. In addition, please read our , which has also been updated and became effective May 23rd, 2018. Only worry is can toyota or some other mechanic shop put them on and reprogramme? This is the second time this has happened to me. You'll still be able to bring the vehicle to a stop and Toyota states that no accidents have resulted from this problem, but obviously it's an issue that needs resolving. Two weeks later my car is still off the road with the dealership so if anybody would know how I could source a second hand skid control ecu part number 89540-47050 or could even advise if it is possible to get these repaired. I do keep seeing 89540-47100 on Ebay though.
