Can I just pick up a regular
Can I just pick up a regular battery charger and use it on a Prius?
Received a Toyota Technical
Received a Toyota Technical Service Bulletin from the dealer. It's actually a pre-delivery service bulletin, but one item says: "to store for 10 days or more, disconnect the wire harness from exclusive jump starting terminal".
And the service manager said to go ahead and jump start it.
Jump started the Prius last
Jump started the Prius last night, seems ok. Now I can worry about comments I've found about losing battery performance after it discharges. I guess this whole episode also relates to an issue at the dealerships: misinformation about hybrid maintenance.
And I'll stick that 10 day limit in my database too.
If you park your 08 prius
If you park your 08 prius for more than 5 days you should turn off the smart key sensor. The smart key sensor keeps looking for the key and that drains the battery.To turn off the sensor look just below the streering colum.You could leave it off and insert the key the smart key slot to start your car.
