2004 Toyota PRIUS Unknown Or Other Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID540030

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI was driving my 2004 toyota prius (14250 miles) on a freeway and all of a sudden all the warning lights came on (red exclamation mark in a triangle , engine failure with exclamation mark, another exclamation mark in a cirlce and some other scary signs). I immediately pulled over on the shoulder of the highway, and stopped the car. I checked the owner's manual to make sense out of those signs and it said "do not drive and contact your toyota dealer immediately", so i did. The car was towed to the toyota dealer and the dealer had it for a day. The dealer had it checked and told me that the software needed to be upgraded. He told me that toyota was aware of the problem and the upgrade was already out. I think it is a very serious problem. Now i was searching on the internet for more information on this prius software problem, i found that there are many incidents of this type where all of a sudden the software crashes.
