Can you try on the other inverter? Is you 12V supply stable? Shutdowns are triggered by the Prius driver, not the control board. So the driver is unhappy about something.

As in switch to MG1?, 12V is supplied by a bench supply with a server battery in the loop to suck up some of the hungrier components in my test setup, I guess it could also just be a faulty inverter then?

My project is on hold now that it's 'running' because of a battery setup I am configuring along with building a garage. It jitters in reverse, but fine tuning when I have coolant and brake assist is next.

My problem is laying my hands on the vehicle, all the other bits are in hand.

The Figaro is nearly finished, great car but too much modification required to fit the leaf battery inside. Plan is to try again once it’s finished but with an MGR and Gen 2 Prius inverter which should free up a lot of space in the engine bay for other battery options.

@ZooKeeper I downloaded the params you posted a couple of years back for the same config. Have you done any updates since or is that still current? Hoping they will help give us a head start so thanks again for posting them.
