I rented a Prius once a couple of years ago and I had to read about half the owners manual to figure out how to start it. It was fun to drive but the rear window needs to be changed, when I first looked into the rear view mirror I thought the trunk was open.

I thought that it was a joke as the Prius has so many batteries.


For reasons I haven't learned yet, the Prius (I have one) has a little 12v lead-acid battery which powers the car computer and interior lights. This can easily be run down if the interior lights are accidentally left switched on when the car is parked. (The interior lights are old-fashioned incandescent bulbs, and have no auto-off timer.) The Prius can't do anything when this 12v battery is dead.


lol...I just replaced this battery, hard part was finding it!

I was puzzled. Thanks for explaining.
