I have a 2008 Prius. This has happened to me now for the 3rd time - first 2 times, Dealer said battery was defective, 3rd time, they tell me "there is nothing wrong with the car". I have had Toyota's all my life and loved them, but am thinking of filing a Lemon Law issue on this one if it happens a 4th time. AAA is getting tired of coming to jump start my car!

I have a very low mileage 2005 Prius. I can't leave it undriven for more that a few days without the auxiliary battery going dead. It starts OK with a jump. The first time it did this I took it to the dealer -- who said that there was no problem. I found this site searching for a way to upgrade the puny auxiliary battery. After reading all the other posts, I think I will take the car to an independent auto mechanic to see if I just need a new battery and/or if I can put a more robust battery in it.

I searched around a bit. I guess what I have is just break actuator squeaking.

I have a similiar issue with my 2007 I really believe its the battery since Ive had to jump start it many times when the lights were left on overnight. Ive been told even if the battery is relatively new running it down reduces its ability to hold a charge
The great thing about these cars is they are super easy to jump start since the battery is only necessary to start the electronics not the engine. I recommend regardless if your having this problem or not get some jumper cables and learn how to use them, the most important thing is keep red on red. You can also get these portable Jumping batteries which you can keep charged and don't even need another car.

My 2007 Prius is doing the same thing. When I turn it on the system doesn't start up properly, can't put in gear and warning triangle is on. I must push the power button multiple times before it shuts down. 2nd power up everything is fine.What did your dealer find wrong with your car.
My 2007 Prius intermitently
My 2007 Prius intermitently fails on power up. Can put in gear and red warning triangle is on. After pushing power of 4-5 times it will power down. 2nd try turning on always works.
I see multiple cases in this thread. As anyone actually had the problem corrected by a Toyota dealer?
