Can I still go to my bank if I paid cash for the car? Can I go to your bank too?
#184 of 186 INVERTER VOLTAGE FLUCTUATING
Oct 28, 2012 (8:45 am)
My 2007 HH has fluctuating dc voltage since April 2011 when there was 120488 miles on it. The dealer had below statement:
"INVERTER VOLTAGE FLUCTUATING AT AMD WIREFROM DC/DC CONVERTER. ~|~120488 INVERTER VOLTAGE FLUCT UATING AT AMDWIRE FROM DC/DC CON VERTER. 150 INVERTERNEEDS REPLA CEMENT."
They gave me an expensive estimate to repair it. Back then I didn't like the fact to pay such money for a part that still working. I thought I will repair it whenever it dies.
It is more than a year and half and I put more than 15000 miles on my car and the inverter is still working as before.
Anybody has the same problem? Does anyone know if my car really needs an inverter or it might be something simpler than that?
I would appreciate any thought.

Not sure about that specific problem but one you might see is the generator failing and not charging the battery. The problem is that the generator is located within the drive system and the dealer cost to replace it is around $5,000 including labor. It's a 12-hour job. Good luck!

Thanks for posting this solar roof concern. I have been browsing around for 2012 leftover Prius lll models and I've looked at several with that roof. I will be rethinking cars with that option. Did you get the roof replaced?
