Prius HV Battery Guide
The Ultimate Guide to Prius Batteries
Are you getting the dreaded triangle of death, VSC, check engine light, or any of the above? Here’s our no nonsense guide to Prius hybrid battery problems.
For new Prius, Camry, and Lexus models.
*Limitations apply. See our warranty page for details.
1. Hybrid Battery Symptoms
Low battery reading?
Having trouble with your Prius or hybrid battery? Poor performance, indicator lights, and the car not starting are all signs of potential hybrid battery problems.
2. Professional Diagnosis
We recommend going to an auto parts store (Autozone, O’Reilly’s) to have them scan your hybrid’s ODB II codes. Call us with those codes and we can diagnose most issues over the phone. If not, we may travel to your vehicle’s location and perform a comprehensive diagnostic. It’s common for dealerships and brake shops to misdiagnose Prius and other hybrid battery issues.
3. Hybrid Battery Installation
Get hybrid healing!
A mobile technician travels to your location and (in most cases) replaces your Prius battery or hybrid battery with a Motorcells renewed HV battery. For all makes/models, we give you an excellent warranty.
I'm very please with the service that was provided. Chad was very knowledgeable about the Hybrid Battery Service. He explained the process and answered all my questions. Highly skilled and very professional, I would recommend this company.

Had great, responsive, and knowledgeable service. There were some annoyances at first in the quality of the initial battery installed, but because of their warranty, they replied swiftly to fix any problem that came up and fixed it proper. I would recommend this place to anyone again, and I will continue to use them for future hybrid needs.

I am so impressed with their knowledge & customer service! They drove to my house to grab my hybrid battery and brought it back and installed it! Went out of their way to give me informed answers regarding my car and even drove around with me to make sure everything is working! Hands down recommend Motorcells!

The dashboard of my wife's 2007 (with 185K miles) lit up with all of the classic signs of "hybrid battery failure." I got a sticker shock when I asked the Toyota dealer the price for a new battery. Then I called and spoke to Chad who was great. He explained the process that he uses to replace any bad cells then recondition the battery. He provided mobile service, picking up the battery the day after I called, returning to his shop, and returning to my home the following day to reinstall my refurbished battery. He also did a road test.Now my wife's Prius is happy again. Also the Engine Display page frequently shows a green, fully charged hybrid battery. I am still on the first tank of gas following the battery repair, but I am also seeing significant improvement in the MPG.Thanks, Chad!

Could not recommend this service more! Had my beloved 2006 Prius' hybrid battery die on me and the dealership wanted almost 3x as much as Motorcells charged. Little did I know I would also get ABOVE AND BEYOND customer service. Chad communicated promptly, explained everything so I didn't feel in the dark, leant me a car while mine was being serviced, and had my Prius running better than ever in an hour. Yes, you're getting a refurbished battery instead of a new, but the warranty is the same; it makes total sense for an older car. Highly recommend!

Our Motorcells experience was amazing. After a brief phone conversation, he was able to come to the car with the all the tools and parts needed for a complete repair. The work took about an hour. I would definitely recommend this service and would use it again.

Chad provided quick efficient service and is a great guy all around. I felt like I was having my best friend over for a huge favor! Excellent pricing, I saved over 4000 dollars! Vs Toyota’s ridiculous quote!
Hi Chad! I wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the service that I received on my 2006 Prius. Tim worked quickly, was very knowledgeable, thourough and professional. I'm thrilled to have my Prius up and runnin in no time! I would recomend your services to anyone. Dawn
Chad and Tim were great to work with. Simple and easy to schedule and get the work done and both had a ton of knowledge and information to share. I highly recommend Motorcells.

When Toyota wanted 3700 for a battery replacement I had to look elsewhere. Chad was able to come to my house, install the new battery same day and under 1000 dollars. All the dash lights have been reset and the car runs like new even with 200k miles on it.

Great honest service. I recommend Chad to do any hybrid battery work you may need. We got one day service. His expertise brought my 2007 Toyota Prius to new car performanc. Couldn't be happier. The best warranty I've ever seen in writing.

Was able to get my hybrid battery replaced for 1/4th of the dealer estimate and battery is working great. They also went above and beyond solving a safety problem with my back seat that was discovered in the course of replacing the battery.
Chad and his services are trustworthy and transparent. He takes the time to list out options, prices, and important, detailed information of the whole battery process. He educates you and makes certain that you understand everything and answers all questions before proceeding. Even most important, he takes the additional time out of his busy schedule to build a relationship and connect. I appreciate the fast but quality worth work... not to mention the grand or two he saved my bank account from 🙂
Hybrid Battery Repair / Renewal (high voltage traction battery)
At Motorcells™, we aim to provide a cost-effective way to keep hybrids on the road for as long as possible. We think it would be a terrible shame for these incredibly energy-efficient, eco-friendly vehicles to go out of service just because of an out-of-warranty battery and the replacement cost. Our goal is to keep hybrids on the road for a long, long time, and we have found that hybrid battery repair and renewal/refurbishment is the smartest, most cost-effective way to do that.
In addition to getting you back on the road fast, we aim to provide you with easy, no-hassle service from the initial call or e-mail all the way through handing you back the keys to your repaired hybrid, EV, or Prius. Please Contact Us as soon as possible to receive a no-obligation phone consultation and custom price quote. Give us a call, and we’ll do our best to answer right away or call you back within 15 minutes! We want you to have a great experience repairing your hybrid vehicle with us.
I am trying to justify the cost of repairing my hybrid. Help!
Your hybrid is only worth a few hundred bucks without a working battery. With a renewed battery, you can keep driving it or get the maximum value for your private sale or trade-in. It’s a no-brainer!
We offer a limited lifetime warranty on new Prius, Camry, and a few Lexus models. We offer a 12-month warranty on renewed batteries. Call for details on all makes & models. See our warranty page for more details.
What’s the difference between a Motorcells Renewed HV battery and other refurbished or “junk yard” batteries?
A “refurbished” battery may have come from straight from a wrecked vehicle at the junkyard with little to no testing or renewal. Other refurbs may not have been properly renewed or rigorously tested.
Our Motorcells™ 10-Point hybrid battery repair/renewal process means that all hybrid batteries have been inspected for suitability, completely repaired, and undergone a thorough re-testing process – including drive time in a test vehicle. This takes time, expertise, and specialty equipment – and it is what allows us to offer you an excellent warranty. Be smart, because a refurbished battery can be a risky proposition unless you are dealing with a trusted, well-reviewed company with a strong history of honoring their warranty.
Absolutely! And we haven’t found anyone that will do it for a better price. Having said that, unless you have a low mileage Prius or Lexus, for example, we think a Motorcells™ Renewed HV Battery can make more sense. We’re happy to discuss your specific vehicle over the phone.
