2006 Prius with 145K miles. This has been an ongoing problem for several years which usually will correct itself after multiple times pushing start button. Occurs every few months. (This has also happened when the engine was on and we were driving which complicates things) Note1: We always press the brake pedal when we turn car on. Note2: It is not cold outside. Note3: We do not drive with lights on. Note4: Not the valet switch. Note5: Changed battery in fob. Note6: Original battery pack is good per mechanic.


Mechanic advised us to replace the 12V battery, which we did with $300 Toyota battery. Thought the problem was solved but it occurred again yesterday.

Mechanic is nervous about the computer having a problem. Yikes. Any input is appreciated as we are not sure what to do :crying:....thank you in advance.
