I should have my Prius by midSeptember, and have been following this and other bulletin boards since Feb. I am concerned about all the warning lights people mention. Some have them come on before a "limp home" incident. Other have them randomly because of "breakin period." Still others have them because of water, CPU issues, etc. At times they go away after a shutdown or three and warrant no further concern. At other times they herald a tow to the dealer.

Could somebody make a quick list of the lights and what they mean for those of us without cars and manuals? I am especially interested in how to check what the dealer says about them when I finally take delivery.

Simply stated, how does reality compare to the Toyota corporate line when it comes to heeding red lights?

I'm using a Mac OS X computer w/a Mozilla-based browser, without any problems. What are you having trouble doing?

For those with a scanner nearby, these are the pages needed:
Basic overview - pages 5, 6
Detailed overview + descriptions - pages 116-127
Please note, page 116 is needed because it contains the low temp indicator light (snowflake on road)

Same here; well, I'm running Mac OS X 10.3.5 (build 7M34) and Safari 1.2.3 (v125.9) anyway, if that helps.

Also using Safari and OSX10.3.5.

I am trying to download the pdf users guide and get a javascript window asking me to right click. Since my mouse is one-button... what do i do?

Would appreciate any help.
Thanks

Downloading on a one-button mouse

Control-click - it should bring up a list of options, including one to save the file to your computer (download linked file as...).

Or you could get a (whisper it) a two button mouse. I know this is heresy and I am in therapy, but maybe a 2 button mouse is permissible, under some situations, if you keep you one button mouse. Got my 1st Mac February 29th 1984. It was as bad as waiting for a Prius.

Kensington has "cheap" 3-button scrolling mice; picked one up myself for about $15 recently. Works with Mac OS X, even if you don't install their driver software. On that one, right-click is mapped to control-click. :)

Believe it or not... this is the first time I have tripped up because of a one button/two button issue.

Have had Macs since the first one (1982) and now have a G4 dual processor and 22 inch flat monitor.

Lusting after the new G5's, but first a Prius!



Microsoft free since 2003!
