check engine light came on at start up.. I couldn't tell any difference in the performance other than it sputtered at ice shutdown.. after a day or so.. the light went out.. I called dealer.. he said drive it.. took it in for the computer to check it out and after a long time with California.. the mechanic said.. it's mine for a while.. suppose to have a part tomorrow.. I'll try and get some details but I believe I know more about them than they do
folks the deal now has the California expert flyinging on Monday!!! the dealer said that there was another prius with the same code about 200miles away. that means either KC or St. louis or possibly Springfield.. must be a Missouri virus.. the code is 1121
:x Well.. our very own toyota sent two (2) MECHANICS from Japan along with a regional manager.. who doesn't speak Japanese to fix my precious prius.. they replaced the computer, and the thermos bottle.. which the local mechanic thoought we needed to do the mechanics brought lots of technology... and took the replaced part back to Japan.. they said they learned a lot.. since I don't speak Japanese.. I don't know what they learned but I do hope they fixed it.. and I hope it helps the rest of you in the furture..
