Prius hybrid battery replacement. Learn how to replace a hybrid battery in a 04-09 Toyota Prius and make money while you're at it! Replacing a hybrid battery is not difficult at all.
I show you how to scan the computer to check the hybrid battery and we got a P0A80 code which means replace hybrid EV battery. I also show you how to clean the hybrid battery fan to keep the battery cool. To remove a Toyota Prius hybrid battery you remove a few interior trim pieces, unbolt the hybrid battery, swap out battery cells, and reinstall. While I did fix a Prius, you can apply the same process to many other hybrids like Honda, Chevy, Nissan, Ford, and Lexus. So whether you are Prius to fix and flip for a quick profit wheeler dealer style, or you want to fix your hybrid so you can continue to use it, here is the in-depth video on how to replace a hybrid battery safely and easily.

PLEASE READ: I wanted to update you guys just in case you dont follow my instagram (you should def follow)... 1.) I just dropped new swag for the holidays: bit.ly/ChrisFixSwag 2.) I have been working on this video for the last month which includes buying the car, sourcing a high quality battery, taking a class on how to safely and properly replace high voltage hybrid batteries, etc so I hope you love it! 3.) Two weeks ago I did a drift event for charity where I had you guys jump in the passenger seat. I gave over 100 ride alongs and I wont ruin the surprise but we raised a ton of money! 4.) No luck with my house/driveway/garage search which is upsetting because it is becoming increasingly difficult to do what I do in my current location 5.) I was on the West coast last week for SEMA and did 3 different meet-ups and met hundreds of fans which was awesome! You guys support me so much and I am thankful! 6.) Feel left out, follow my Instagram because I give updates for all this stuff!!! #ChrisFixit

A few important details about that $2500 saving on the install: 1. You have to know how to do this, and do it *safely*. Hybrid battery packs are no joke. Chris mentions this at the end, saying most mechanics "won't even touch these things." There's a reason for that. 2. You have to be willing to wait for the aftermarket battery to arrive through the mail 3. Your own time isn't valueless 4. Electronics are inherently more complex than mechanical systems to most people. For example, if the car hadn't started or there was still a low-voltage warning coming from the computer, are you sure you'd be able to troubleshoot? To be clear, I'm a bit of a wrench turner myself, but that $2500 saved is more complex than "the battery cost X and they wanted to charge Y".

If there is one thing I like about the interior when you look at the dash is the recognizable steering wheel of the second generation Prius hybrid car, the position of the gauges being in the middle of the dashboard is the least thing I like about the interior as you want to rather have the gauges right in front of the steering wheel instead.

The reason dealerships charge $4/k to do that job is because they know what they are doing & the extra $2000 is in case they short out the battery by accident that they can replace it with out letting you know & still turn a profit

Should probably put the acid dipped nuts into water and baking soda next to neutralize the acid residue ... For longer corrosion free life.

So while the fan is expose you could make an air filter with simple single layer of pantyhose and a round clamp ... keep those fan blades clean and servicing faster later.

Hey Chris. I'm just wondering about the nuts you removed the rust from. After using vinegar to remove rust, aren't they going to be more vulnerable to attack again now more that ever? I think using electric grease to protect it or some type of paint. Over all this was a great video. I learned a lot. Might be a project I can do. I have a neighbor who has one. Newer model. But I got the idea.

My catalyc comverter got stolen on my 2009 prius.. I drove like that for less than 2 miles and got red triangle with exclamation point on it. When that happened car started to loose power and eventually died on me:( right now I have it at a muffler shop where they will put another catalyc converter on but car still does not turn on..when I press on power button all the lights come on with rd d triangle like if car it's on but engine not on. Lights, radio and power windows work . The windows are slow though so I don't know if battery it's dying. If I remember I have one purple bar. Also keep getting a message about something that car needs to be on flat surface and something about the transmission . A while back it completely died on my while I was changing the passenger mirror, after I was done I gave it a jump and everything was good. This time it won't move from one purple bar even after a jumped it

Another way to store/organize your bolts is to use a piece of cardboard (stronger than paper) and you can poke little holes in to put your bolts into. Cardboard is nice because you can label the bolts also.
