3008 Highlander Hybrid Won’t Start
My HH wouldn’t start. When depressing the brake
and pressing the ignition button (which did turn
green) some of the dash lights flickered on.
Thought it was the battery so I got a jump. With
the cables connected, the car behaved the exact
same way. Ignition button was green, pressed it all
dash lights came on but engine would never start.
Never received the READY light. What am I dealing
with? (First time hybrid owner).
I think you need plutonium for the 3008 model.
I have a 2008 Highlander. Have owned it since 2010. You describe exactly what happened to me this first time the normal small ignition battery that is under the hood went bad. It is the one that all cars have. Not the hybrid battery. It needs to be replaced about once every three years depending on the battery. Once the battery goes, jumping does not work. We got stranded and the only store opened was Walmart. It doesn’t give much warning. Second time it needed replacement we got warnings about the airbag and the breaks until a few days later car just wouldn’t start. It was the small battery again. Original Hybrid battery for the call is still going strong. Now we just buy a new small battery for all three of our hybrid cars every three years to be safe. They all three acted the same. We love our hybrids. They all have around 200k miles.
