Non Start Steering Lock Jammed

Keyless entry, if parked with wheels turned or against kerb etc. You may have to rock steering wheel or turn against load on tyres as engine is started to allow steering lock to disengage.


Toyota Prius Hybrid can suffer a flat auxiliary battery (12 volts) this can be jumped started in the recommend way. It is normally in the boot and early cars can be easily accessed here, later cars have a jump start point under bonnet (under red cover on bulkhead) or in the fuse box see picture. You will need to keep your foot on accelerator pedal for 15 minutes to charge battery or engine will stop. Don't touch any of the high voltage wiring (orange connectors as these are for the 288 volt motor and will kill you).
