TOYOTA PRIUS, Model years 2011-2017
Electric Vehicle (EV) Fuse: The hybrid system on the involved vehicles contain an Electric Vehicle (EV) fuse which may malfunction if the vehicle is repeatedly operated in EV mode under high-load driving conditions, such as during a long hill climb. In some cases, the vehicle can be driven, but with reduced power. In other cases, the hybrid system could shut down resulting in the loss of motive power. Power steering and braking will not be affected.
What to do...
As an owner of an involved vehicle, you will be contacted by registered letter requesting you to contact your nearest authorised Toyota Dealer to arrange a convenient time to have the repairs completed. Alternatively, contact Toyota's Customer Dialogue Centre to discuss. See details below.
