Default Open door dash light

The warning light for an open door is on. All doors including hatch have been checked, but the light stays on. I can not lock the car.

Hi, VanLuchene,

It's always good when you register here to put the year of your Prius into the system so any time you post, the people trying to help you can have that knowledge ahead of time & can better answer your questions.

By saying all doors & hatch have been checked, do you mean they were opened & re-slammed shut? There have been many instances of the hatch on the 2G's ('04 thru '09) being the culprit in that even though it appears closed, it isn't fully latched & will cause the little 12V battery to be discharged by the hatch light remaining on (it's not that easy to see if the light is on with the cargo cover/window shade pulled closed).

Have somebody watch the light on the dash while YOU push/pull/wiggle the hatch (but DON'T use the spoiler to hold onto or you might break it). It's either that or one of the 5 switches is broken or a wire has come off one of them. Good luck !
