Where Did All the Warning Lights Go?
Hi. I have a 2007 Prius, 114,000 miles.
My car won’t do ANYTHING.
• Two days ago - Spent 30 minutes in a semi-gridlocked traffic jam yesterday when my car beeped (once) and the following warning lights came on: Master Warning Light, VSC, a yellow (!), and the Malfunction Indicator Light. I went through the Service Reminder Indicators process; lights went down to the Master and the Malfunction, but now the Hybrid System Warning Light was on. Drove to O'Reilly's - tester read POA93. The inverter coolant was on the low side but nothing else visible.
• Yesterday - Went to see how the car was looking and guess what? No warning lights whatsoever.....like this was all just a full moon thing?
• Today – Tried to start the car and ALL of the warning lights came on and stayed on until I could get the car to turn off. The gas gauge strobed all the way from one side to the other, ALL of the lights behind the RNDP panel lit up, and the backseat doors won’t open. I tried to open the back hatch with my key and got 4 short beeps (and it didn’t open). Jump starting the battery didn’t do a THING.
Events this past month include one headlight out....then two....a dead battery (reason not clear). I replaced the headlight bulbs, jumped the car....and was excited that everything was back to “normal”. Obviously, it isn’t.
Comments, anyone? I really don’t want to have to tow this car to the dealership.
