Me too. 76,000k miles, but while I was driving. Toyota didn't help me either. Did you get help from them?

Our 2005 Prius with 79K miles has twice now popped up with all the warning lights which direct us to have it towed to the nearest dealer. Only the last time we were in heavy traffic going very slow for over 30 minutes and as soon as the problem cleared and we could accelerate, all the lights went on and the car wouldn't go over 45 mph. We had to pull over and re start the car twice to achieve decent acceleration. Just the opposite problem all the other Toyota's are having.
The lights were still on when we got to the dealer, but when they went to work on it both times, the lights are off and they say there is no problem with the car.
Does this sound like a computer issue or a mechanical problem? Should we pursue it with another dealer?
Obviously we are concerned because this is a potentially dangerous situation as we could get hit from behind.
#125 of 126 backup camera malfunction
Sep 14, 2011 (12:39 pm)
My reverse camera stopped working. The screen is mostly white with a rainbow pattern in it when I put it into reverse. No other problems with the display. I have a 2006. Anyone else had their cameras do this? Please don't respond about cleaning the camera lens, this is not the problem. I can't find anyone else who has had a camera go out. the dealer said it's about $1000.00 to replace it.

Aparently this is a major problem that toyota has with all of their digital displays that are in cars from 2004-2009. I have also been having the same problem for some time and it is really inconvenient and should be resolved by toyota. I have researched and found this website to have some very important and needed information. http://lusciousgarage.com/blog/prius_combination_meter_dashboard_repair_availabl- e/
