Can anyone suggest how to begin troubleshooting this? Thanks for your help I have looked in the manual! The failure mileage was 85,000. Also, two warning graphics appeared on the navigation screen, one indicating trouble. The fm and am radio selector failed to function properly. While driving unknown speeds, the instrument cluster went dark and failed without warning. Currently, it the display continues to work intermittently only, causing me to drive for days or a week or more with no visual display of how fast I am driving or how much gas I have remaining in my tank. That way, the switch you might most need in a hurry will be visible, even if you have dimmed your instrument panel lights. The contact stated that an extremely strong battery acid odor emitted inside of the vehicle through the vents.
I had driven the vehicle between 30 and 50 miles with low light on multiple times previously. The dealer explained an odometer limit was placed on the vehicle by the factory. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The message shut down when I got to the security gate. A forum on the topic of Prius fuel tanks and gas gauges is at.
Consumer states unintended acceleration the consumer stated the vehicle was on cruise control, when the engine suddenly revved. Try a reasonably good quality fuel injector cleaner for a couple tanks of gas- your injectors probably would benefit and it sometimes fixes the problem. Also is there a meter that gives the estimated range of fuel remaining? However, when the consumer and her husband exited the vehicle, they along with the police officer found both headlights were working and he let them go without a citation. I managed to drive the car back to my house, where it will stay stopped for now, and by chance the power button worked to shut down the Prius this time. I have just filled it up from about half a tank because I want to start using Fuelly. I am gradually coming up to speed with my Gen 2 Prius but I can't find any display of the petrol engine temperature.
A couple hundred bucks later, and a car wash and my problem was solved. I think the gas gauge is a well-known flaw with Prii. The consumer stated a few weeks ago his vehicle was about to reach 300,000 miles, as he reached for his camera, he realized the odometer never went past 299,999 miles. So, they sent him home with that answer and if I continue to have problems to bring it in again and they would have to do some expensive troubleshooting. The failure mileage was 191,000. If it wasn't for my son in law calling for a loaner car I would also be paying for a rental.
Why did Toyota charge you for this? Is the sensor the green thing with two wires connected to it? Toyota was unable to duplicate it. No, you can't display engine temperature. Sometimes when the car is in this state the car cannot be turned off by pressing the start button. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 on this site the. Same with the temp gage. They have to pay expensive rental for their locations and bonuses for their salespeople. I tried to place the vehicle in neutral but it would only stay in park.
Which component would be loose? No, the Prius doesn't have an engine temperature gauge. I own a 2009 Prius. I have just filled it up from about half a tank because I want to start using Fuelly. Also is there a meter that gives the estimated range of fuel remaining? The car was left running this entire time and I began my way back to my destination. There are no issues with the actual bulbs; it's a computer issue, from what I'm told.
Thanks Hi all, 1993 Carina E 2. This failure of the cluster display is a hazard to me and especially to my young teenage daughter because we do not know for sure how fast we are driving or how much gas we have remaining at any given time when the display stops working. The t-stat is a possibility, though the temp gauge should have moved a little on my 10 mile return trip, which it did not. All warning lights were not working also, except the check engine light and the turn lights other lights like high beam, tire pressure, cruise control would not light up again, even when the car was started when the usually flash for a few seconds. Today the temperature gauge stopped working, its on the bottom. The dealer replaced the battery. It started again and then it pulled and dragged and I got back on the shoulder.
The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The dealer informed the consumer the vehicle was a large computer, and when one component stops working, such as the odometer, other components cease too. This function should be eliminated to prevent an eventually fatal accident that is waiting to happen or maybe already happened. If it was stuck shut, then you would get hot air from the vents very quickly and the engine would rapidly overheat. The contact stated that while driving 10 mph, the vehicle stalled and a hybrid system failure message came on the instrument panel. A couple of times over the years my wife has complained about not having instruments.
I've read that it could be the sending unit, bad wiring or the gauge itself. It sounds more like a faulty sensor , gauge or the wiring and connectors. Also had it in park engine revved and started to drive away. The cruise control, power windows system and cellular phone power outlet became inoperative. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. Nothing that I noticed, but then, I didn't do any troubleshooting at the time I returned the truck. The mechanics were unable to duplicate the failure.
