What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2013-2015 Toyota Prius
- 2014-2017 Toyota Prius V
Excessive voltage in the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) within the inverter of affected vehicles may cause the hybrid system to shut down, causing the vehicle to stall while being driven, NHTSA said. An unexpected hybrid power system shut down may increase the risk of a crash.
Toyota is notifying owners and dealers will perform a software update for the hybrid system. If the Prius has experienced an inverter failure with certain hybrid system faults related to this condition, the inverter assembly will be repaired or replaced, free of charge.
This recall began on August 10, 2020.
