2003 Prius Hybrid System Warning Light

The red light with the car came on last year(2007). So took it to a local dealer and I can not remember what they fixed. Well, low and behold, it happen again 1 month ago. Waited till next morning to go to dealer, and the warning light magically disappeared. So I turned around and life continued till today. Bang, there it was again. What's going on? All electrical functions are working.

    My 2003 Prius triangle warning light has been coming on (along with the check engine light) at least once a week, it seems to me that it occurs when it is over 100 degrees outside...unforutnately I live in Texas and it is always over 100 degrees. With the warning lights on it drives very slow. If I pull over and wait 10 minutes then it goes back to normal but the warning lights stay on.Could this be an overheating problem? It only has 50,000 miles on it and gets regular check ups. Thanks.

    My 2003 Prius did this and it was the Hybrid battery, $2500.00 dollars and about eight hours I was back on the road again.

My Toyota Prius hybrid warning light has come on three times in eight years. If I turn the car off for 20 minutes, the hybrid light is off but the check engine light is on. After a while, the check engine light goes off. I think this problem is related to moisture somehow entering the hybrid vent on the driver's side. All three times this has happened, the weather was wet. Kevin Cardiff

I have a 2003 Prius and the big Red triangle came on and the gas engine won't start up. I could only move with electric power. After several attempts at various things, our dealer in Tysons Corner, Va said it was the ECM (electronic control modual). Big bucks but he said it was covered under the extended warranty. He put one in. Seemed to be fine. Two weeks later same thing. Long and short of it was he put three in before it worked right. Appartently there are some new ones with problems. it has been working fine since. Vernon

The red triangle w/exclamation point happened on our 2007 Prius. Turns out it was unidentifiable debris that had melted onto the air flow sensor wires in the air intake box. That debris caused jumbled signals from the sensor, causing the computer to be confused enough to give up and shut us down. Could have happened to any car with an air flow sensor feeding a computer control system.

How do u wired a prius hibrid gear box?

Posted on Oct 23, 2008

These lights can come on for a multiple reasons, and they never indicate to you, the driver, which one. Among the reasons I've found are:

Oil level too low.
Oil level too high.
Brake fluid too low.
Radiator fluid too low.

My daughter has a 2006 Murano, and has had the same problems.
Replacement Tire Pressure sensors are available from e-bay online, but when the first one of hers quit, I found out from the dealer that the computer loses track and must be reset. I would not replace any wheel sensors just yet.
Where we live, the Nissan dealer wants about $150 to reset the computer and turn off the "flat tire" light.
Recently, a local tire store has offered to do this for free.
I took my daughter's car in to have the computer reset.
The store manager says they cannot reset Nissans or Toyotas, only the dealer can.
So, my daughter is living with the "flat tire" light.

I'm sorry to hear that you've had so many problems. I had a 2007 Aura and now I have a 2009. I love them and will likely move the Buick Regal when the time comes. Any how, I don't have an answer per se, but a bit of experience with a similar situation. Has your passenger seat been wet or otherwise 'stressed'? I experienced a similar problem in my 2007 and the problem was with the pressure sensing mat in the seat bottom on the passenger seat (between the cover and pad).

I have a cusomer with a golf gtdi the gear box is stuck in reverse, the problem seems ti be internal rather than a cable or linkage issue. Has any one else had this problem?


It may be the plastic linkage at the tranny were the cable connects. I ran into this problem last year. Everything looked OK until I took a gamble and bought a new skift linkage kit from the dealer. low and behold the plastic part was broke even though it did not look as if it was . Replaced it and fixed the problem. Hope this helps.

Dont be worried at all. The battery temp sensor isnt very important, most cars dont even have them. The only thing is you will have that light on. Good luck!!
