Twice today, when I put the prius in drive- I got a warning that I was in nuetral and the battery would not charge accompanied with warning beeps. Turning off the car , then on , did not change the warnings when I put it into drive.

I was able to drive it a few feet, park it and an our later no problem. It happened also first thing in the morning and turning off , then on , the car cleared the problem.

What mode/gear did the indicator next to the speedometer indicate? Were any doors open?

Not-too-well-known message is caused by the door being ajar. Restarting doesn't close the door, so no fix; leaving and re-entering does, ergo no message after that. Happened to me, fooled the dealer.

A couple times I shifted too quickly out of P and missed D or R. The car went into Neutral and warnings/non movement occurred. I learned to be careful in shifting and not rushing it.
