    Prius hybrid battery replacement. Learn how to replace a hybrid battery in a 04-09 Toyota Prius and make money while you're at it! Replacing a hybrid battery is not difficult at all.
    I show you how to scan the computer to check the hybrid battery and we got a P0A80 code which means replace hybrid EV battery. I also show you how to clean the hybrid battery fan to keep the battery cool. To remove a Toyota Prius hybrid battery you remove a few interior trim pieces, unbolt the hybrid battery, swap out battery cells, and reinstall. While I did fix a Prius, you can apply the same process to many other hybrids like Honda, Chevy, Nissan, Ford, and Lexus. So whether you are Prius to fix and flip for a quick profit wheeler dealer style, or you want to fix your hybrid so you can continue to use it, here is the in-depth video on how to replace a hybrid battery safely and easily.

PLEASE READ: I wanted to update you guys just in case you dont follow my instagram (you should def follow)... 1.) I just dropped new swag for the holidays: http://bit.ly/ChrisFixSwag 2.) I have been working on this video for the last month which includes buying the car, sourcing a high quality battery, taking a class on how to safely and properly replace high voltage hybrid batteries, etc so I hope you love it! 3.) Two weeks ago I did a drift event for charity where I had you guys jump in the passenger seat. I gave over 100 ride alongs and I wont ruin the surprise but we raised a ton of money! 4.) No luck with my house/driveway/garage search which is upsetting because it is becoming increasingly difficult to do what I do in my current location 5.) I was on the West coast last week for SEMA and did 3 different meet-ups and met hundreds of fans which was awesome! You guys support me so much and I am thankful! 6.) Feel left out, follow my Instagram because I give updates for all this stuff!!! #ChrisFixit

It looks like your old bus bars were copper and the new ones are aluminum. Unless they are nickel plated copper? Did you by chance try scraping a surface layer off to see if they are indeed aluminum?

I'm actually still amazed at how much work it takes to replace these, AND I'm even more amazed at how small the total battery volume is. I wonder if they could triple the battery volume and, with plug-in recharging, basically change this into a 80-miles-without-gasoline vehicle? Also, incidentally, not a knock on the Prius at all, but my base model Saturn Ion still gets over 40 mpg on the highway after 14 years and about 180k miles. That car is NOT a high performance vehicle, but it cost UNDER $12k brand new. So my point is: there are some very inexpensive ways to save gas that don't involve expensive perishable components such as the batteries in a hybrid. I do believe in hybrids, but especially in larger vehicles, especially plug-in rechargeables and much more so with the goal of utilizing the internal combustion engine as a backup to an otherwise electric car.

Well my friend you're a badass I really enjoyed the video and I find it very interesting that a person can change out their own battery and their Prius. So thank you very much for the info and like I said I enjoyed the video and out of curiosity what was your down time for the R&R on this battery replacement? Thank you so much again.

Thanks Eddie. The first time you do the battery, it will probably take you 4-6hrs if you take your time and just follow along with the video. I can get a battery replaced in about 1.5-2hrs now.

So the car was worth $4000 if running but the dealer wanted $4000 to install new battery. If trading in you got ZERO allowance. I had read this would be a problem when the hybrids first hit the market and now we are actually seeing it happen. So, the corner gas and repair shops will be slowly getting into this just like you. You didn't mention if the car could be driven off just the gas engine alone when the battery gives out.

Question is, did you return the old batteries, or was there a charge to dispose of them correctly? If they were returned, did you have to pay for it and what was the final amount? Just curious, I never really thought these cars are good for the environment to begin with, the pollution from the batteries alone can't be good.

Very informative video with good details. I have a 09 Tahoe Hybrid that uses the same Gen 3 Prius batteries, the only difference is that there are 40 modules in the GM Two Mode pack instead of 28 like in the Toyota Prius. I will contact these people to see if they do New batteries for the GM Two Mode vehicles. Looks like a good system.

Sunny shah You missed the footnote (in top comment) that it actually took special training and several weeks to get this right. A professional repair shop needs to guarantee and insure their work, so may not be allowed to just learn from a YouTube video. They may also use brand new batteries instead of refurbished 3rd party batteries.
