Is my HiHY at the end of its life?
I have not been here for a while now enjoying long rides to beach on my 2006 HiHy. It's been well on track to reach 300,000 miles when suddenly the problems started.
First, the radiator gave up 250 miles away from home. I was able to find a mechanic locally and replace it.
Then, a month later, the car lost power on the highway. Towed to the same mechanic and he found that the timing belt broke. He replaced the belt but now I have new issues.
1) the CEL keeps coming on with P0016 code, Crankshaft position/camshaft position, bank 1 sensor A
2) VSC., ABS, antiskid and parking break warnings are all lit up
The ABS is apparently disabled and I can notice that regen braking is not working properly. The hybrid battery is losing power fast and keeps recharging at each start.
My mechanic believes that ABS unit has failed and needs to be replaced although I have not noticed much difference driving or breaking.
What are my options? Is there a way of checking ABS controller, get rid of the warning lights and so on. Please advise.
