PS sign indicates problem with power steering. most likely is has electrically assisted steering and needs attention. may want to contact the dealer to make sure it is not under a recall before pursuing any further. the Prius cars have had alot of problems recently.

I don't know about hybrids, but on most vechiles, you check power steering fluid with engine running.

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.

could be as simple as you need power steering fluid, which intels you may have a leak, or it could be a bad pump. add fluid, see how long it stays in there, check every day andmore. if it doesnt last a week of driving then you have a leak somewhere. if it does but the problem persits, its the pump

This violent shaking where you can stop it by holding the steering wheel in my experience is due to a BAD rack and pinion. Replace rack and that will solve this problem. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

2003 toyota prius hybrid while driving suddenly warning light come on with PS sign on then steering become hard.


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.

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.
