Hybrid wiring issue forces Prius back to the dealership

Toyota has recalled the current-generation Prius, over concerns about the engine wire harness.

According to the company, the harness connected to the Power Control Unit could come into contact with the connector cover and wear over time, creating the risk of an electrical short.

If the issue generates enough heat, there’s a risk of fire.

A total of 795 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Toyota will contact owners of the affected vehicles and tell them to contact their nearest dealership for a free fix.
