Toyota of Berkley called, I need a new battery.
It is under the original warranty of 60,000 miles, I have over 52,000 on the battery.

The battery took about 2 weeks to get.

I am scheduled to pick it up next week.

Is this a $36,000 main traction battery (386 volts), or a simple 12 volt battery?

Tony - it is the main traction battery. The service manager said the crate was the size of a Prius :lol:
Wow $36K is even more than I thought.
I replaced the 12v battery Feb 2016 with an Interstate Group 24F from Costco.

Toyota of Berkley have been testing my car this week... I have been getting many charge notifications - and I am on business travel. :D
I can't wait to pick up my car, travel in the bay area without the stickers is slow slow slow.

Today I was going down steep hill near our house in B mode, outside air temp about 73. At the bottom of the hill it flipped into turtle mode, charge went to 0 bars, and the Check EV System warning light came on. Pulled into nearby lot. I power cycled multiple times with no joy, but after about 30 minutes I tried again, just as the tow truck came, and all was good. 52,000 miles. I guess I'll not take it in and see if it recurs.

That sucks. Im sorry. I think I have heard this before and it was the battery. I am not positive though.

Hopefully you have a warranty?

Thanks. I do have the extended warranty, so its just the hassle factor. I will probably it in to Palo Alto tomorrow to have them read the codes.

That sucks indeed. I think that taking it to Palo Alto Toyota is a good idea. Hopefully it stored an error code and the problem is in the ECU or something else not too terribly difficult or expensive to replace.

Check/replace your 12v battery before getting into anything really hairy. It could be the whole problem.

I agree. Replace the battery first. The dealer might give you a new one under warranty but it wont be without a hassle. Spend the $160 and get the one that Tony recommends. I did
