I took my Prius on a trip and at some point I drove for about 15 miles in unpaved road. The road was not really bumpy but it vibrated the car a little. About 10 miles into the ride in the unpaved road, after I pulled over for a 1 hour stop, I started the car again and all lights and the combination meter with the speedometer, gas gauge, gear indicator All warning lights were not working also, except the check engine light and the turn lights other lights like high beam, tire pressure, cruise control would not light up again, even when the car was started when the usually flash for a few seconds.

    I reversed the car and the rear camera was not working either. The central display was still working though, but the Trip information was not displaying the fuel consumption and the mileage since last refill stayed stuck in miles even though I drove for about miles on the way back from the trip.

    In the middle of the trip I parked and the car would not power off and the key stayed stuck in the slot. I managed to drive the car back to my house, where it will stay stopped for now, and by chance the power button worked to shut down the Prius this time. I have a few questions related to those events:.

    How to force the car to shut down if the power button is not working? Disconnecting the negative terminal the battery will work or this would make any further damage? In the last month we have now experienced 3 more "no display" events and I have been able to get the display back using the following "improved" sequence:.

    A couple of times over the years my wife has complained about not having instruments. On at least one occasion I believe the display was just very dim because she had the headlights on in daylight. I could never confirm or replicate the issue. After a dinner out a few weeks ago I started the car and no panel. Restarting did no good. I drove home and the car would not shut off.

    I held the start button down until the engine shut off but the touch screen display was still on. Not wanting to run down the auxiliary battery and not wanting to deal with it late at night, I tried a bunch of button presses and such. Finally, I tried inserting the physical "key" device into the slot in the dash. When I removed it, the display turned off as well. Next day still no display.

    I tried a number of things to no avail. I saw some blurb on the internet about "low battery" being a possible cause so I decided to check the battery voltage as follows:.

    I believe that putting the computer into diagnostic mode as described above probably did some sort of system reset and got everything working again. Further evidence is that a number of owners have complained that after replacing the instrument cluster the problem comes back after a period of time. My wife now has the diagnostic check sequence written up and with the manual in the glove box.

    I will follow up if it ever happens again. The symptoms point to a failed Combination Meter. Besides the speedometer, it also controls the power off button and the dashboard lights except the check engine light.
