Questions About 2013 Scion iQ Electric Systems

  • Does it cost more to repair Scion iQ electric vehicle systems? The answer is, it depends. Certain high voltage parts are only available as components in larger units. We do offer promotional financing through the Firestone credit card.* (*Subject to credit approval.)
  • When do Scion iQ brakes need to be replaced? A brake inspection is your smartest first step. Investing in manufacturer suggested maintenance intervals for Scion iQ brakes is another good idea. That said, front brake pad wear can be significantly reduced in electric vehicles because of regenerative braking.
  • My Scion iQ dashboard warning light is on. What should I do? There are so many reasons the iQ dashboard warning light can illuminate. Stop by Firestone Complete Auto Care for an electric vehicle diagnostic to learn more. You may also have a warning light on the dash regarding your high voltage system.
  • Is it normal for my iQ to leak water? Electric cars use a receiver dryer assembly to help keep the A/C refrigerant free of contaminants, and this process can produce some condensation. When it’s warm outside, this condensation may drain under the vehicle. If you’ve been running the air conditioner in your iQ for some time, don’t be too concerned to find a bit of water under it. However, if you discover large amounts of water or any coolant leaking under your vehicle, you may have a problem with the cooling system or another component.

  • How often should I get my Scion iQ vehicle serviced? To determine the optimal service intervals for your Scion iQ, it is important to consider factors such as your driving habits, vehicle age, and mileage. Check your owner's manual or speak with an automotive professional for more specific guidance. Keep in mind that even electric cars require regular maintenance, such as tire rotations, brake inspections, and fluid checks. Additionally, electric cars require maintenance for the battery, brakes, and A/C system.

2013 Scion iQ EV Services

Has your Scion iQ been feeling a bit "off"? Perhaps you've noted weaker braking, or your vehicle doesn't feel like it has the same "get up and go" that it used to. If that's the case, our technicians can run through a no-cost* electric/hybrid vehicle check to get a deeper understanding. There could be an issue with the high voltage cooling system in your iQ -- if the high voltage battery is running hot, it will limit the battery’s performance. Or, perhaps there are Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored in one of your iQ's electric modules? Your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care store is ready to offer conventional and low voltage services for all electric vehicles, and that includes your 2013 Scion iQ.

Certain Firestone stores also offer high voltage/advanced services for electric cars like Scion iQs. High voltage services are any that include removing the iQ's high voltage, safety/service disconnect switch/plug, servicing the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, or any high voltage electric machines/motors or high voltage cables, etc. Call your local store before making an appointment to check if high voltage services are offered.

Your store's high voltage electric vehicle service may include:

Electric vehicle diagnostic: After any symptoms are identified, then our team performs a diagnostic on your 2013 Scion iQ to get to the root of the trouble. With those insights, a trained technician will further diagnose electric vehicle problems you're having and determine what tests (if any) are needed. We never perform repairs without your approval.

High voltage battery cooling inspection: Your technician will inspect the iQ's high voltage battery filter (if applicable) and clean the ducts of the battery.  (This applies to air-cooled high voltage batteries. Liquid-cooled or refrigerant-cooled high voltage batteries are inspected differently.)

High voltage cable inspection: Cables can get damaged. In this inspection, your tehnician will examine the exterior cable jackets and connectors and test to make sure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis of your Scion iQ. If the cable needs to be replaced, they'll let you know.

Isolation test: During this test, the technician will use a special tool to check for any high voltage components that are "leaking" electric energy to the chassis.

Remove and replace high voltage battery: Is your 2013 Scion iQ high voltage battery weak and failing? Electric vehicle batteries can sometimes fail sooner than expected in hotter climates or if you often use Level 3 fast-charging stations, since these chargers can heat the battery more. Let us install a new electric vehicle high voltage battery.

Health check for the power electronic systems: We'll inspect the regenerative braking, power inverter, and/or electric drive machine(s)/motor(s) in your Scion iQ.
