Jet spot dent pull on a Toyota Hybrid

Recommended Posts

I am getting conflicting advice what to do for body work on a hybrid car as regarding the battery pack.

What procedures should be taken before jet spotting a hybrid car (or what about welding on one)?

You need to disable the hybrid battery, ideally by a L3 EV qualified tech, although not sure on the legal implications.

Thanks for response.

You mean as in taking out the orange safety key (thats the plan we have, although not by a ev tech)

1. First remove ignition key and put somewhere safe away from the vehicle.

2. Disconnect the 12V battery - this will cause the BSM (Battery Smart Module) to isolate the HV battery outputs.

3. Put on safety gloves and remove the orange service interlock on the HV battery.

4. Wait 10 minutes.

5. Remove the inverter cover and use a digital voltmeter to confirm 0V on the HV leads.

6. We also disconnect the airbag and ABS ECU's if welding..
