Nav system reported "could not read from disk, contact the dealer". Dealer unplugged computer, replugged it in, and said "If it happens again, come back". See report #2 for the come-back trip. Nav system displayed "could not read from disk, contact the dealer". This time they decided that the disk was not bad, but the nav computer needed to be replaced. Parts ordered, said about a week. See report #1, and #3 and 4 for more data. Part (Nav system computer) finally arrived. The dealer attempted to replace it, but they had received the WRONG PART NUMBER COMPUTER. They re-ordered. See report #1, #2, and #4 for more data. They received the correct replacement computer this time. After this 4th trip into the shop for the problem, they finally got it fixed. I hope.

It's now sitting in a box in my garage and the factory alarm/smart key system works great. Feel free to message me if you want more details.

I had another module start to go, but this time it was with the "block XX becomes weak" CEL. I believe I had noticed this block was, in terms of voltage, high when charging and low when discharging, so I suspected one of the modules was on it's way out, but it still lasted a half year or so. As of December 2017, I believe another module i(or two) s starting to go as well. This manifests itself as the pack appearing completely full more often than in the past, especially after a decent hill, and also periodically dropping down to 1-2 bars after it's completely "full". This happens because the module or modules with the flaky cells will increase or decrease voltage faster than the other cells (they have relatively little capacity to store energy left), which makes the pack voltage appear higher or lower than it actually is and the battery displays as full or near-empty more often.

Got the red triangle of doom. ECU gave an HV battery code. Checked and one pair (block) was 1V low. Bought used pair for 80 and swapped them in. Edit - After doing a few of these, I'd say it's doable in 6+ hours by yourself, but you definitely need something to help compress the modules in the pack so you can install the bolts on the pack's underside. I use wooden boards of differing widths and a couple wood clamps. If someone is helping you out and they're reasonably handy, you might be able to do this in 3-4 hours.

I had picked up another 2007 Prius from a friend for $1500, so I PNO'ed this Prius and have been driving that since. I have a few decent modules I purchased off ebay to swap into the pack, but I'm planning to pull it and do some thorough testing and possibly rehydrating to see if that improves the pack's performance. TODO - Pull pack, cycle/measure battery modules, try to rehydrate modules with limited capacity, cycle/test those modules again, reassemble, test how the pack does in the car.

A/C started blowing hot air then Triangle of Death appeared approx 1-2 hrs later. Dealer said A/C repair was likely due to evaporator core leak that needed to be replaced. However, dealer estimated A/C repair to be $2700 which was more than half of what we paid for 13 yr old vehicle! We declined dealer repair & recharged A/C for $50 - we believe dealer was completely dishonest because they said they had recharged A/C when they replaced inverter water pump but we found A/C caps laying under the hood. Later found on Prius Chat blogs the A/C diagnostic code lights have been known to trigger when inverter pump goes out.
