The ScanGauge has a hybrid mode, so it turns off when you turn the key off, and stays on while driving whether the engine runs or not. I placed it right on top of the steering column, so it's just...

No, I don't know if it's accurate. I just checked it in park without the engine running and it read 0. I'll try it next time I drive the car if I remember.

Maybe put a small tape seal across the inverter cover, since they have to open it up for the recall inspection. Or mark stripes across the cover screws and cover.

The power gauge is pretty useless. I'd rather have a tachometer to see when the engine is running or not. I added one with the ScanGauge II.

I would replace the 12V battery, which you said had gone dead earlier, especially if it is more than 3 or 4 years old. Costco has good ones for around $70. Monitor for any weird symptoms with the...

Which ECU was it? There are dozens in this vehicle. I wonder if those symptoms could have been related to a dying 12V battery.

Definitely no distance to empty feature on the 400h. You'll have to use your fuel gauge and get used to how many miles you can go on a tank.
