As I Left Work My Indicator Showed A Full Battery All Bars In Blue. As I Was Driving Down The Coast I Noticed The Battery Started To Quickly Deplete, In Approx 8.6 Miles My Indicator Showed 1 Blue Bar. At That Time I Was Making A Left Onto The Canyon Road. I Thought This Was Odd. As I Turned Left Noticed A Decrease In Acceleration Power. Didn’t Think Much Of It But About Until About 2 Miles In I Noticed The prius Started Losing Acceleration Power The Motor Was Running And The Indicator Did Not Show That It Was In Ev Mode Even Coasting Through The Canyon And Braking. I Had To Accelerate To Come Up A Slope Through A Tunnel I Had Almost No Acceleration Power. The Car Felt Like It Was Hesitating I Think By The Down Hill Coast And A Few Spurts Of Power Surges I Was Able To Make It Through The Tunnel By The 5th Mile I Had No Power To Accelerate Luckily There Was A Road Where I Could Make A Right. As I Coasted To The Intersection I Turned Right Then Attempted To Pull A Uturn On A Patch Of Dirt As I Was 3/4 Of The Through The Turn There Was Zero Power The Vehicle Was On But No Power Engine Cut Out. No Check Engine Light Whatsoever I Got Suck In The Middle Of The 2 Lane Highway Blocking Both Directions! I Put On My Hazards And Attempted To Put The Car In Neutral It Indicated It Was In Neutral, Then I Shifted To Drive But Again No Power The Car Was Just Making A Noise And Like A Very Faint Grinding Noise. At This Point Cars Were On Both Lanes Trying To Head Each Direction I Had To Get Out And Push The Car Backwards To Get 1 Tire Off The Side Grade Then I Was Still Sideways In The Middle Of The Road. I Cycle The Car 3 Times By Putting It In Park With Parking Brake With No Luck, Or Power. It Wasn’t Until 4th Try It Got Some Power The Engine Kicked On And I Was Able To Pull Back In The Right Lane And I Was Stuck At The Corner With My Hazards On. *tr
