#45 of 65 2007 Prius won't start
Jul 09, 2010 (6:43 am)
The car ran for three years with no problems, three weeks ago the car won't start, the ready light would come on, but when I push it, the engine turned once and the dash lights would come on, but won't start? I had the car towed to a Toyota Dealer. The Toyota Dealer told me that it was the HV ECU. After replacing it and programing it for $1,000.00, the car still won't start. Now they are telling me that it might be the inverter or the transmission? Can anybody help?

Is that "p1325" or "P3125" ?
Do you still want an analysis?

Sorry, not enough information. Did they give you any error codes? What city is the car located?

my 2001 prius died 3 weeks ago and the main battery had to be replaced. At the time they gave the car a once over and there were no other problems. 3000 poorer and last night the various warning lights come on. Towed to station an told today that due to stress on car due to battery that was replace (keep in mind we never had any warning lights until car would not start one day) that now our transaxel is shot and it would cost 6000 to fix. Help is there any recourse. This is crazy. if a low battery was going to caus a problem would there not have been codes when they checked car 3 weeks ago. This car only has 115K miles. Please advise.

Sorry to be late. On the P0A1D, there should be a subcode but Google shows it to be "internal ECU faults." This is potentially pretty expensive.

"dash hardness" - Huh? I do not understand this term.
"a new code POA1F" - this is a hybrid vehicle control computer general error. The subcode is needed to understand what is going on.
"is there a way to charge the HV battery" - Yes but normally at the dealer.
