2010-2014 Prius Inverter/Converter IPM warranty enhancement – P0A94, P324E, P3004, and/or P0A1A
Toyota recently released a warranty enhancement for 2010-2014 Prius, extending the coverage of the inverter/converter Intelligent Powertrain Module. What does this mean for an owner?
If you own a 2010-2014 Prius you’ll be getting a letter from Toyota explaining the situation. They’ve seen an unusually high failure rate of the inverter/converter that controls the high voltage for the hybrid drive system. The inverter/converter is an important piece of electronics in your car – without it, you’re stuck.
So what exactly are they covering? They’re replacing the inverter/converter if it fails, but only for a handful of very specific reasons. If your car breaks down and the inverter fails, Toyota will replace it for free under the warranty if you have the following error codes:
P0A94 – DC/DC Converter Performance
P324E – MG ECU power relay intermittent circuit
P3004 – Power Cable Malfunction
P0A1A – Generator Control Module
If you’ve paid to have your inverter replaced already (out of warranty), Toyota will reimburse you provided you have the appropriate documentation.
