My 280K miles 2004 Prius is completely dead. I pushed the start button and there was a noise like a fuse blowing, then nothing. The 12V battery is new and fully charged. Is there a main fuse somewhere that I need to check? Anything else I should look at?
It turned out that the month old battery had gone bad. The original battery lasted 8 years, the second Toyota battery lasted 6 years, the O'Reilly's battery lasted one year and was replaced by this one that only lasted a month. The O'Reilly stored said they had four of them returned. They offered a refund of the original cost but they are $200 now so I'm trying one more time.
