when I turn off car

The brake pads are fine.

Car will not open if I walk up to it and grab door handle. Also, Now must insert fob to start car. Changed battery on fob so that's not the problem. Could my small battery be going out?

It comes on but stays saying 0 mph why?

It just stopped holding the speed you choose

Happens mainly in the morning or after my cc at sits for a few. It acts like a car that's cold.

Regular maintenance due at 101,800 and told engine/inverter coolant needing replacing at additional charge of $90.

How many miles does a mm of brake take to wear away?

Had my oil changed at a Toyota dealership and they forgot to put the drain plug back. Drove 21 miles before lights came on and engine shut off, seizing.

What else can a blown engine affect? Transmission, bearings, coolant system? Not trusting this dealership so far, situation has been handled very poorly and I do not have another mechanic with Prius knowledge to give a second opinion.

Hazard light came on while driving. Pulled off road and slowly all power was gone. Nothing worked. Got a jump on battery under hood. How do we charge the big batteries?

Front washers work

It's been very rainy for the past week.

Turn on blinker and both sides flash left and right but on side is brighter then the other

I had a fender bender and the tank came off. It was white plastic and seemed to have clear fluid in it. My local Toyota dealer said the car was "fine" after checking it for 2 days and never noticed it was missing...

This was recommended by the dealership for a cost of $390

so dash gauges dont light up when car starts and car wont turn off. it will still drive but no speed gas levels or warning lights. after I reset the whole thing then it works fine for a while.

right side dash - orange pix "malfunction indicator lamp" also "brake system warning light" in orange. Pls help!
Dealers $$$$ Thank You

Brought car in for coolant dashboard light warning. Toyota dealer diagnosed "Radiator leaking from upper outlet hose. Radiator will need to be replaced." Does the whole radiator need to be replaced or possibly just the upper hose? Seems like the cost difference could be +/- $200.

i have an oil leak, but it is leaking somewhere inside the engine: ie: it's not on the ground. my mechanic thinks this will be too expensive to fix, and that i should probably just turn it in and get another. a friend told me she'd heard that this is a common problem with Prius at 100K. i have 164K. what is the best course of action? it seems it will cost $$ just to find out what is wrong.

I have a headlight out and am trying to replace it myself instead of taking it somewhere.

There is a red/orange underlined exclamation point light on on my dashboard.

The area under drivers feet is moderately wet after long drive. Could it be related to a/c condensations?

I have a Prius 2007 that is not working right now. After changing the battery twice, the water pump, the inverter and the ecu. And the car is still not working. My mechanic which works for Toyota doesn't know what else to do and we already have spent too much money on this car. What else could be?, the computer to troubleshoot doesn't show any more signs, it's says that everything is fine. But the car keeps on getting some weirds lights on and not working.

What could cause the left head light to come on and off and the right headlight to flicker?

My inverter cooling pump failed with a open circuit. The car has 190,000 miles. I am not sure if it has been changed before. I have changed the pump and want to check the fuse. Thanks!

Was burning so they turn car off and won't start

I did thid but radio and a/c stayed on. Won't this kill the battery?

Sucked the water out and two days later there was more! Anyone else have this problem?

no display of speed,fuel nor shift indicator on the dash,it just wont light up
