Toyota Prius Battery Repair: Replacing one bad module (common failure)
In this video I diagnose and replace one bad module in a 2005 Toyota Prius
high voltage (HV) battery. Just a simple voltage check on the positive and
negative posts of each battery module will show you which module needs to
be replaced. The video describes which fasteners to remove and the
technique for removing and replacing the affected module. The module we
replaced cost $51, shipped from an Ebay seller. The Toyota dealer wanted
$3500 to replace the entire battery with a new one. So, the car is fixed
for $50 and a couple of hours of labor. I've repaired two battery packs
with the same method. Pretty simple.
Sorry for the monochrome video. My camera decided to do that on it's own...
2015 Toyota NS4 Plug-In Hybrid

Toyota NS4 is the model itself that has a great chance to get into the
production line. If nothing gets in the way, NS4 already marketed globally
by 2015. Toyota NS4 will use the latest generation Hybrid Synergy Drive
system with battery charging plug-in. Lock the biggest change is in the
reduction of the number of components, which would result in a lighter
weight as well as more compact size when compared with today's hybrid
technology . The impact is going to increase efficiency, better
acceleration and electric modes with further cruising, plus battery
charging time shorter. Zoom describe Toyota's design direction in the
future. Where aerodynamics become more concern with regard to efficiency.
High-tech features for connectivity enabled through a touch screen designed
for easy interaction with technology. Function was just like a smartphone,
can be used to control a variety of functions such as air conditioning,
audio system, navigation and even charging the battery. The system is also
able to study driver behavior and habits to anticipate driver responses in
a variety of conditions and situations. One of the security system that
will be embedded in NS4 Pre-Collision System is the latest generation with
the help of radar and monitor of the camera. Other advanced features such
as adaptive headlights, and a rear-view camera which replaces the special
glass to ward off ultraviolet light has become a standard in NS4.
