= PROBLEM / ERROR CODES - PLS

2001 Toyota Prius

Electrical problem
2001 Toyota Prius 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

Hi all

I have a 2001 prius (UK spec!)

& the car is kicking of following error codes below.

As A guide, I cannot rev it up at all just stays idle (engine side sees FINE turns over & runs sweet)

& the MAIN BATTERY (RED LIGHT) is flashing on my dash display! (However can charge the HV battery upto about halfway, even more if I let it run!)

The car just about enough power to move forward (at a snails pace) & refuses to reverse without help either.

Have been told by the recovery guy that all the error codes point towards the battery, I got a copy of all the error codes that came up on his diagnostic machine (laptop)

they are as follows (with whats at fault, what the error code means Googled of the Net, *Rocket Science to my ears!)

P3001 - HV Battery Malfunction
P3030 -
p3100 - HV Ecu Malfunction
P3115 - System Main relay Malfunction
P3125 - Converter Inverter Assembly Malfunction

where do start? &Amp; what do I need to replace?
