couple cells in the Nimh battery pack, wheel bearing, and miscellaneous tinkering. A fad from last decade is finally in my reach! banana

I have Techstream "ebay edition" which apparently interfaces quite completely to these cars. But my generic scan tool was able to read cells 7 & 8 as being the duds. The car always runs when it's on and the rear seat makes a fan noise as a fail safe for the traction battery.



More later, chaps!

Be very careful you do not electrocute yourself if you replace the bad cells yourself.

I've also got a 35 year old mercedes w123 diesel upon which the odometer broke around 2001. A different approach to the same problem. cheers

Probably more fun to work on than drive. I got a prius as a rental in florida last year. It was a horrible car, i would not be able to stand driving it every day. I'd rather drive my ciera with no air, than a prius.

Sounds like that Prius is a good candidate for a GM LS1 swap.
