Intermittently my dashboard goes out and at the same time my backup camera doesn't work. When this problem occurs, my car also will often not turn off unless I hold down the power button for five sec

Asked by Feb 23, 2016 at 08:56 PM about the 2008 Toyota Prius Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When the dash goes out, so does the backup camera.  Also, when the dash is
out, the car often will not turn off without holding down the power button.  
When it will not turn off, the car will not lock and the trunk latch will not work.

It sounds like you have a problem with what's called a "combination meter". Toyota has extended the warranty for this part. Your best bet is to try them first to see if they will fix it under warranty. If not you have two options. Have Toyota fix it for about a $1000 or take it out and send it to get fixed for about $125. I saw a listing on Ebay.
