Has anyone else experienced this? We have a 2005 Prius. When the
engine is cold, and when we get to the first stop light after
starting, the engine seems to start and stop and start and stop
continuously until we get going. By the time we get to the next stop
light, it seems to behave normally (shutting down completely unless
the battery needs a recharge in which case it comes on for a few
seconds, not the half-second bursts a the first stop light).
