problem #3

Prius 4-cyl

  • 75,000 miles


Intermittent failure of headlight (left and right, though not simultaneously). Problem can be temporarily corrected by turning headlights off, then on. This issue occurs while driving (twice within a one hour drive) and when the car has just been started. Fuses have been checked and headlight bulbs have been replaced with no resolution.

The right side headlight goes out multiple times for no apparent reason. I have to turn the lights off- then back on--it will come back on--only till it goes out again.

During the recent rash of snow storms to hit the eastern mid-states I noticed that my windshield washer fluid nozzle froze up. It worked when I left home and stopped working on rt 32, md. I do not believe there is anything wrong with the windshield wiper fluid I used. I had a very difficult time seeing out of my front windshield. The back nozzle did not ice-up. I noticed that all the other cars (easily 40-50 cars) windows were clear, except one, another Prius! this has happened to me several times recently as well as in the past. If asked, I am certain other Prius users would report the same problem. My car is an '05.
