That's what the shop says regarding my 2002 Prius. Well, mostly dead.

The serpentine belt is busted, which was caused by the A/C compressor locking up. A bit ironic that the car was laid low by A/C in the winter.

On the bright side, it's slightly alive. The Prius can and does run without the serpentine, but engine feedback is screwed up, and the car will overheat fairly quickly as the water pump needs the serpentine belt. However, I'm not going to dump in the $1400 necessary to replace the compressor.

I'm not quite ready the junk the car. I've got one other idea, so we'll see.

You could toss an idler in there and skip having A/C.
