Rebuilt Prius cars and parts! MFD Repair and HV Battery Replacement

2006 Toyota Prius with a trailer

 The multi function Display says it all....I Drove 65 to 74 mph with traffic ( 4 miles over the speed limit) for all but 50 miles of the trip.The return trip averaged 40.1 mpg. ( Slower speed most likely)one of the 4 wheelers is a 250 and the other is a 90cc. the trailer is 5 by 8 with a steel mesh floor. The car handled well and only labored at speeds over 70.I dont suggest we all put a trailer hitch on our Prius, but my results were satisfactory for limited use.The hitch required a very small modification to the plastic under the car...I admit I was aprehensive about it.but after seeing the 1 inch by 4 inch part removed...I was convinced it was nothing to worry about.The wiring for the trailer lights is as follows( I only used brakes and running lights...I did NOT connect the trailer lights with turn signals)I suggest purchasing a trailer light module from your favorite auto parts store if you want turn signalsI used brown for parking lights and blue for stop lamps.I Spliced into the prius harness below the rear gate latch and found a rubber grommet under the spare tire to route the wire outside.
