Im a goof. You are right it was the 12 volt battery, however i learned the hard way that doing the old trick of a 15 minute highway drive to recharge the battery does not work afyer a hybrid jumpstart. The only thing that revived my 12V battery after a jump was leaving my hybrid car idle for 8 hours to get a proper recharge on tge 12V. i discovered this trick after digging around on the web. All is good now, and my car niw starts reliably.Well, are you talking about the 12 volt battery, or the hybrid battery? That price sounds like the hybrid battery, but leaving the dome light on would run out the 12 volt battery, which should be much cheaper to replace.
thanks for your reply.
