How is a hybrid supposed to work?
Iím still trying to figure out my engine failed to start problem and have a couple of dumb newbie questions because I have never owned a hybrid. The engine starts and idles but in Park or Neutral if I step on the gas it doesnít rev up or do anything like a regular car - is this normal? If I start to drive the same thing, engine doesnít really rev and about a block or two it shuts off, Check Hybrid System message appears and I have to hightail it back home in EV mode before the battery goes dead. Engine will not start again until I reset the POAOF code with techstream.
So my question is: is there anything odd about it not revving up in Neutral or Park when I step on the accelerator or is that how itís supposed to act?
For some reason the ECU is cutting it out and setting the DTC putting it in protected mode but Iím not sure if maybe my throttle isnít responding or I have maybe a bad fuel flow or whatever...
Iím thinking of putting it on Craigslist for a ridiculously low price.
