This summer in Italy I drove up a mountain to friends over a 2km road
with a lot of bends and covered with grid. On a certain moment the
tractioncontrol came in, the yellow light came on and everything became
very quit. No engine running. I could push the accelerator pedal but
nothing happened, the car came to a complete stop.
How to handle in such a situation?

I was caught on a steep rain sodden dirt road once and the car refused to
grip the road although the engine would rev. Only way out was to exit in a
downward direction to another tar road.

 Hi Lu,
 I thought you said you never use this site. Thats whet you told the guys
on the
Oz car site. Why dont you tell them about that problem you have
with your Prius
, maybe one of them can help you.
