Hi, I have a Prius C 2012. Does anyone know the location of the intake vent to cool the battery? I see a vent on the rear backseat, where your calf would be when sitting there.

Has it had the latest recall If no do that first! Then clean the fan or filter. Seven hundred thousand 2010 to 2014 Toyota Prius models are among nearly a million Toyota vehicles to be recalled over electronic issues in the U.S. The Japanese automaker has advising the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it's to recall affected Prius models to rectify software in two of the Prius's electronic control units, one for the motor/generator and the other controlling the hybrid system. Toyota says the current settings could result in "higher thermal stress in certain transistors", potentially causing them to become damaged. If this occurs, the company says various warning lights may illuminate, and the vehicle would revert to a failsafe mode. In rare circumstances, it could shut down the hybrid system itself, "resulting in loss of power and the vehicle coming to a stop".....LOOK UP ALL INFO ONLINE TO MUCH TO POST..
