My headlights have both been replaced under a recall still have issues with flickering or just not working. Every tail light, running light, and fog lights have been replaced. I have had friends tell me they don’t work so they periodically go on and off. The aux plug kept blowing fuses and after I bought a handful of them the Toyota mechanic replaced it with a 20 amp vs the 15 which is what it should be. I purchased 4 new phone chargers because they kept telling me it was my charger!

I had a water pump go out and I paid for it to be replaced, then there was a recall and I did get a refund after having to prove that a Toyota dealer had done the work!

Toyota Prius Electric Cars

I have a 2011 Prius and am having an issue with the door sensors and the brakes. The door sensor symbol comes on and the alarm for a door which is ajar comes on when the car is running and all the doors are securely shut. Sometimes, this happens when the car is first started; other times, it happens after you have driven it for 20 minutes or so. When you put your foot on the brake and depress the pedal, the door sensor light and alarm stops.

When you release the brake pedal, the door alarm light and alarm resumes. Sometimes, when you have your foot on the brake pedal, the orange triangular warning light comes on with a message in the box saying key detected in vehicle. In addition to the orange warning light coming on, sometimes the traction control warning light comes on.

The brake pedal is also depressing more than it normally should.

They feel it is a wiring issue and want to spend more time diagnosing the car. I authorized replacement of battery ($300 or so) and three hours of diagnostic time. I plan to call them on Saturday to have them look at the brake sensor (they were told what the other mechanic thought the issue was and why), but they evidently did not look at it initially. I asked if there was a way to turn off the alarm associated with the door alarm and they said no. Can this be done?

I do not have a lot of faith in the service department to diagnose and then solve the issue. Can anybody comment on a possible solution to this issue which does not waste time and money?
