Toyota Prius The Center Multi-Function Display May Fail

(134 reports)

The center multi-function display may failure. This is commonly caused by poorly soldered internal connection. Our technicians tell us that these display panels can be successfully repaired or reconditioned by a shop specializing in such repairs.

Entire center console died-no radio, Bluetooth, navigation, etc. Dealer quotes $2400 for refurbished console. Outrageous, Toyota should issue a recall. -
Dashboard display has malfunctioned 4 times. To turn off the car I hold the power button down for an extended time. The car finally turns off and the next time I start it the dashboard works. I wish Toyota would address this problem ... the dealer repair shop says they have never heard of this. -
MFD failing on 2006 model so no heat/air conditioning/or defrost capabilities. Dealer quoted part as $7000 in Jan.2014 Looking at salvage lots and for independent mechanic to fix. Thumbs down to Toyota's greed. -
Right side of Multi Info Panel is blank. Check dimmer, not the problem. The steering buttons seem to work. Can't check the settings because the panel won't light up on the right. -
Display lights up, but won't respond to touch. Was told at dealer that it would cost $1500 to fix it. On a 4-year old car????? -
Center display does not respond, I have not fixed it and just use the controls on the steering wheel. -
Center display will not respond to touch, have to use steering wheel controls for AC and stereo. -
I have the same problem and the shop wanted $2000 to fix it. No map, display is not responsive and this video explains perfectly. -
Multi Function display is on but doesn't function. AC went out last year and had to replace the front struts with only 50.000 miles. This car doesn't live up to the usual Toyota reliability. I may not buy one again. -
Middle computer console stopped working correctly. Now it shows info in blinking mess. Toyota said they don't fix them they only replace them (for a lot of money). They can be fixed so I will need to find someone to repair it. -
The Multifunction display on my 2009 prius is totally dead. I was quoted 5000 dollars by one repair shop. I was quoted 2200 dollars by a toyota dealer. I need this addressed. There is no way Toyota should not be replacing these without cost to comsumer. We bought the prius brand new and have kept it clean since. This is the first major problem and toyota should pony up and pay for this. -
display is black not working anymore -
The entire MF display failed. The dealer quoted 7500.00. You tube has a great step-by-step description to replace the monitor on your own. -
Some functionality lost for short period then complete failure. Unable to control HVAC, radio, CD, etc. Key fob must be inserted into slot to start vehicle. Limited door lock functionality. -
Mfd is black and won't respond. Button around the display is also not working. Dealer wants $900. I think we will live without the display. All functions, like radio and ac is working via steering wheel control. -
Replaced with factory rebuilt display. The display would not lite up. T believe the backlite was not working -
The MFD on my 2007 Prius stopped working. It will cost $1650 just for a remanufactured part. Whatever happened to Toyota reliability. -
Still trying to figure it out -
touch screen does not respond at all, it's not fixed because dealer wanted just over $3000.00 to replace. -
Touch Screen does not work. APPS SETUP AUDIO Etc. all buttons fail to work. Voice commands work, but no help, no reset function, no availability of preset locations. Total failure. -
