Prius hybrid battery replacement. Learn how to replace a hybrid battery in a 04-09 Toyota Prius and make money while you're at it! Replacing a hybrid battery is not difficult at all. I show you how to scan the computer to check the hybrid battery and we got a P0A80 code which means replace hybrid EV battery. I also show you how to clean the hybrid battery fan to keep the battery cool. To remove a Toyota Prius hybrid battery you remove a few interior trim pieces, unbolt the hybrid battery, swap out battery cells, and reinstall. While I did fix a Prius, you can apply the same process to many other hybrids like Honda, Chevy, Nissan, Ford, and Lexus. So whether you are Prius to fix and flip for a quick profit wheeler dealer style, or you want to fix your hybrid so you can continue to use it, here is the in-depth video on how to replace a hybrid battery safely and easily. **Where to get quality Hybrid Batteries:** https://www.electronautomotive.com Printable step-by-step directions: http://bit.ly/PriusHybridBattReplace Tools: OBD2 Scanner: https://amzn.to/2Dr0hHO Impact gun: https://amzn.to/2Tj9CH6 Panel Clip Pliers: https://amzn.to/2DH9IDF In-lbs Torque Wrench: https://amzn.to/2DpQq4M Ft-lbs Torque Wrench: https://amzn.to/2DlFDJ3 Plastic Trim Clips: https://amzn.to/2DLJuQy #YouTubeLearning → Become a ChrisFix Subscriber: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=paintballoo7 → Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/chrisfixit → Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/chrisfix8 → Website: http://www.ChrisFixed.com → My Channel Home Page: https://www.youtube.com/ChrisFix **If the video was helpful, remember to give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing.

SFL Car Scene : Am I the only one who has absolutely no plans on changing a hybrid battery or really anything he does on his videos but watch his videos any way ? 😂😂

pzigic01 : does anyone else weirdly love the sound of the torque wrench clicking

John Blankenship : Toyota dealerships across the nation hate you now lol. I don't even drive a Prius and I found this really interesting

CHAHAL 1 : Changing battery 10% Unbolting & bolting screws 90%

Yutae Gil : Challenge: Drink a shot every time he says remove

Dry Roasted : I watched the whole video and I don't own a Prius.  Very well presented information, Thanks.

Zeus ontheleus : Remember before removing battery you should spray it down with some soapy woder

Jeffrey Hartwig : Thanks for this upload! I used it to take out, troubleshoot and replace my 2008 battery pack last weekend. I did take a bit longer than your 30 minutes but my Prius is running great and all my family think I'm a superhero!

Frosty. : im always surprised by his attention to detail, fantastic editing, and pretty much perfect camera angles great stuff (15minutes in and the 4k cost from the dealer is starting to make sense lol)

Matt Keefe : I like watching all your videos because they are so well done. I don't own a Prius but my neighbor does an I will tell him about your work. Your methods are so thorough and detailed it would be hard to make a mistake. Your photography and editing are excellent. Your voice overs are clear and precise. You don't waste time and get to all the facts. You are one of the best sources for auto repair for the DIYers Thank You.

Hunter : Do I need to know this? No. But I can't resist a ChrisFix video!

O se : The new owner is lucky a good price and work done by someone who knows what they are doing.

John Drysdale Music : Excellent video! Detailed, step by step presentation. I own a 2014 Prius and plan to keep it for many years. This video is priceless. Keep up the great work, Chris!

Szymon Zioltkowski : Im 15 and cant drive but this fascinates me

EscoPicoTrane : Every tutorial on youtube needs to be performed by this guy Chris. Awesome clear and easy to follow tutorial. Thanks.

DJRomanN : Just fixed my 2007 Prius by swapping three cells only instead of all 28. As soon as you can't really find brand new cell except the dealer, all the cells you can purchase on Ebay, Amazon and so on are used. If you have some time to spare you could use my method- buy a 4 channel balance charger, charge/ discharge each battery pack three times (it takes about 20-30 hours for one cell, but since I've got a 4 channel I can do 4 cells at once, so 28/4= 7 days), charge them at 7.8-7.9V, writing down all the data for each cell, so you can mix and match your own cells in pairs. After that you have to connect in parallel all positive and all negative poles to equalize the voltage (basically you'll have a 7.8V battery with crazy current) for about 12 hours, disassemble the temporary harness, and connect everything back. For the copper shims I tried the vinegar trick then neutralizing with baking soda and they came really beautiful, tried to do the same with the nuts and they turned black as well, so I just bought on Ebay a set of 56 nuts for $12.50. The sensors shims on the right side of the battery were corroded as well, gave them a vinegar treatment then soldered all the wire/shim crimped joints. The car runs great now, before the battery would charge and discharge very fast, now it's pretty consistent between 50-80%. Budget: $100- three cells on Amazon $12.50- set of nuts $150- 4 channel 80W balance charger on Aliexpress $45- wheel dolly at Harbor Freight Total- $307.50 instead of $1500 for all cell packs

T H I C C S A L A M I B O I : Buddy, I don't even own a car and know basically nothing about cars but I love watching your videos out of pure joy. If someone deserved the success it's definitely you. I love the whole Do-It-Yourself vibe in your videos and even if we never see your face everyone can tell just by listening to your voice that you are a happy dude enjoying life by doing the things you love. Thank you for these videos. They are truly a gift to this world. Sincerely, a stranger from Germany that you will never meet.

john4kc : Great video! Anytime you use vinegar to soak rusty or corroded parts you need to then soak them for a bit in water mixed with baking soda to neutralize the acid in the vinegar. Without neutralizing the acid it will continue to eat at the metal. Don't leave parts in vinegar too long either!

Stevie Ray : Chris ....more people should follow your way to producing a how to video ...rhanks ..you're awesome!

Enthusiasts Garage : Toyota just lost a ton of money

Stephen Biggs : great video btw did i see a spark at 22.20 tightening the 12 battery

Tyler Jerome : My girlfriend just got mad because all I do is watch your vids. She says "You dont care about your real life, you just care about Chris and what hes fixing!!!" LMFAO

IL-Matt : I wanna find a Prius with a bad battery now :D

jay capp : Thanks. I don't own a Toyota Prius, but now I know what the hybrid battery, etc. looks like, and how it is installed. I really liked the way you presented this video.

ObserverOfPakleds : Excellent presentation. High energy. Thorough yet captivating. Well done.

bigsnoopk : I think you could make watching paint dry interesting. You've got a great style!!!

peter raymund : i see why this guy has 5 million subs

Mustafa Jama : Wow this man is great. I drive a brand new toyota prius plus 2018. i like hybrid i save money. To have an idea how to repair this things is good. But i am not sure if i can do it by my self

Ricardo Herrera : Im a toyota Master Tech... ive done this a billion times, and yet i still watch.

Oscar Hanzely : Holy smokes, replacing hybrid battery is more work than rebuilding an engine :-D

Ted Lewis : Hey Chris, great video as usual, but the vinegar trick removes ALL the protective zinc plating from the nuts...not just the corrosion. You should have used a dielectric grease on them when you reinstalled them to give at least a little protection. I imagine that they will corrode pretty quickly now, and that will shorten the life of your new battery. Otherwise, great video and good tips on tools and how to organize a job.

PA Joc : Tesla project car🤔

Franklin Bolton : Your videos are seriously so comprehensive it's insane. How you manage to remember to include so many basic tips and think about possible problem people might run into is amazing. Thanks so much for making these, they are a treasure trove of information, and even if I won't use all of it I will know a little more and i'm sure someone will. Keep up the good work!

Zeezen : How you work around your camera is masterful btw

Michael M : I totally want to own a Prius now. DAMN YOU CHRIS.... lol

Mike Brady : Hey man thanks so much for your walk through video I tried to send you some BAT as a tip but it says you aren't verified :( I wrecked my 307k mile prius and bought a used one with 177k miles which had a sketchy battery. Used your help and swapped the batteries and on my way!

Advocate for Truth Liberty and Freedom : Just wanted to tell you Chris thank you so much for your video your knowledge and your insightfulness it's because of people like you we are all able to live a little better Thank you so much may God bless you

Noah McClure : You should make a merch shirt saying “Good.”

Jay Williamson : Hey Chris, Great video. Have you been in contact with the person you sold the car to? I wanted to find out if the battery is still performing well? I'm getting ready to purchase a battery for my wife's 2011 Prius.

Juan Guillen : Where do you get your maintenance/service manuals? I've been having a really hard time looking for my 2018 hyundai accent service manual so I can make the maintenance. The thing is, I just don't trust the car dealership on making a good job, plus I'm a certified mechanic so I want to do it myself. I would much appreciate if you could give me some guidance on where to get that manual

Alexis Zaldivar : You should do a how to install a turbo??!!!!!
