Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing "Toyota" is recalling certain 2010-2014 Toyota Prius and 2012-2014 Toyota Prius V vehicles. Excessive voltage in the Intelligent Power Module "IPM" within the inverter may cause the hybrid system to shut down, causing the vehicle to stall while being driven.
If the hybrid system shuts down unexpectedly, it can increase the risk of a crash.
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the motor/generator control electronic control unit "ECU" and the hybrid control ECU as necessary, free of charge. Interim notification letters were mailed on November 6, 2018. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371.
