Odd (seemingly) Battery Behavior

Asked by Oct 28, 2014 at 11:24 AM about the 2005 Toyota Prius

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had the hybrid battery replaced about a month ago, and lately I've noticed what strikes
me as odd happenings. The mpg has dipped, and the gas engine seems to come on
more frequently while the car is stopped at an intersection. Several times I've noticed
the energy display indicating the power coming from the battery with the gas engine
clearly on.
I checked the 12V battery and it seems to be OK. Is it possible something has gone
awry with the hybrid repair already, or am I worrying needlessly?
Thanks for your time,
John

It sound like the Hybrid battery has not been fully charged before it was put in your rig or it is a bad Hybrid battery, I suggest taking it back to where it was worked on and voice your concerns.
