You can replace and or fix it. Before you proceed make sure that there is no open or short circuit in the fuel gauge system.

Some cars have a second fuse box under the hood near the battery. See if your car doesn't have one of those.

SOURCE: Toyota Prius 2008 - Transmission or or fluid?

Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.

Why did my 2006 prius shut down while I was driving it

You should check to see how many "bars" of fuel you have left. A common issue with these is that the fuel sending unit goes bad, and will show you 1, 2, or 3 bars while the car has no gas. You may have run out of fuel. Even if you put new fuel in, some Prius models need to be reset by a Toyota dealer in order to make it driveable again. In some Prius models, the whole fuel tank would need replaced as the sending unit and tank is all one whole assembly. Some allow you to just purchase a new sending unit. You do also have a chance just paying a dealer for the diagnostic and having them reset the system for you. You will just have to remember to not let your "bars" get down to 2 or 3 bars. Hope this helps.

Fuel gauge lights up when empty but cant read fuel level how do i fix it

You need to decide if the tank sending unit or dash gauge is at fault.
The way to do that is remove the wire to the tank sending unit, and ground it out.
The gauge should rise to full.
If not, the gauge is bad.
If it does, then the sending using needs replacement.

Toyota 4 runner gas gauge is stuck on full.

The solution to your problem most likely is the fuel gauge sending unit which is located on the fuel pump in the tank. SOMETIMES, the fuel pump and gauge are sold separately, but chances are, you may have to replace the whole assembly. Which is actually good measure, considering that you'll have the tank removed, anyway.

I hope this helps! :)

Fuel indicator

OK, your fuel indicator is wired to a sending unit that is located inside the fuel tank. this assembly is part of the fuel pump assembly. the fuel indicator sending unit is housed in the same assembly as the fuel pump. The fuel indicator will not function properly if there is a bad ground or, if there is a fault within the sending unit. there is a floater device attached on this assembly and, it raises with the fuel level and lowers when the fuel level is low, sending resistance signals to the indicator gauge on your dash board. these signals can be disrupted if the ground is corroded or, if the sending unit is damaged. In most cases, replacing the sending unit will fix this issue. if the fuel indicator is stuck on the full mark, check the ground. if the fuel gauge is laying on empty all the time, replace the sending unit.
