    A computer failure should be covered under your extended warranty (if that is indeed the issue here), but of course all extended warranties differ in their EXCLUSIONS, so you'd have to read the fine print here.

    The Prius is probably the most reliable car on the road today, but no car can exhibit 100% reliability---this is statistically impossible. If your mechanic is not factory-trained to work on the Prius, you might consider having the dealer do the work.

    Did they test the 12V battery and fusible link in the trunk?

    If the 12V battery has a problem, it will create those types of symptoms.
