This has happened 2 times in the last month. Car has not been driven for 2 days. I go to start the car & the instrument panel lights flash on & off with a ticking sound. I let the car set for a while & it will start okay.
Had the battery checked, & they said it was okay but needed charging. Drove the car for a few days & it seemed okay, but problem returned yesterday again. Any ideas as to the problem? I noticed that the hybrid
battery inticator always shows full charge now, & in the past would fluctuate between 1/2 & full charge depending on how much the car was driven.

Thank for your help
John

Had a similar experience in a gen1 Prius I used to own. Turned out to be the 12v battery (not the hybrid battery) not holding a charge.

Your experience where they checked it and it needed charging... then everything OK for a few days sounds like a symptom of that. And make sure all your electronics and lights are turned off when not using them.
