If this is the same Aqua (2014) which you had that service symbol come on look at the entire scenario:

1. You got a warning light indicating the cooling system of the battery needing service.

2. Now you get a overheating warning light; which according to the manual (Pg. 402) 

a. If heated water light comes on the Engine is probably over heating

b. Hybrid overheat light comes on (I have no idea whether it is the same light or not) : (Hybrid ? )Power control unit is over heating

c. (This is the best) there is smoke coming out of the the engine bay (uhh...I guess its nice the light comes on when you see smoke coming out of your engine bay)

So to summarize...you got a cooling system warning and now you are getting an over heating warning. Perhaps you should take the car to a proper Hybrid specialist and get it checked out without taking any risks by depending on us to speculate on anything ?

This particular symptom in OP's Aqua prompted me to inspect the drive battery cooling system of my two year old Axio Hybrid. Disassembled the blower motor located under the back seat and cleaned its impeller, mesh screen and the air duct. There was a quite a bit of dust deposits on all above parts (I should have checked the battery interior too but left it for another day). The air intake is at the bottom of the backseat trim panel on the left passenger side. In case if passengers travel regularly (in my case almost never) in this position it could be a good idea to clean these parts once in a way considering the dusty environment in SL. Also I wonder what would happen if someone wearing a sarong, saree or a long dress happens to sit there and clog up the air intake while on a long journey? However, I always make it a point not to pile up luggage, shopping bags etc around the air intake.

The Japanese manual would indicate: Inspect sitting position of man and woman sitting with clothes. If clothes long obstructing air vent lift clothes and re-position seating.  If man or woman clothing accidentally suck in to vent contact your nearest Toyota dealer for assistance.

Thank you iRage. This is really getting interesting. I couldn't help imagining the scenario asking a lady passenger to "lift clothes" :lol:

Wouldn't the system automatically shutdown if the cooling system is malfunctioning or overheating?

Shutting down a vehicle on its own and leaving passengers stranded halfway is the last ditch action for every vehicle designer (remember the limp home mode). It should be the same for these cars too. So you are given a warning and it is up to you to either get it attended immediately or to ignore the warning and keep driving until something more serious shuts down the car eventually. Not the cooling system but your 12V AGM battery is much more likely to fail and unlike in non-hybrid cars the battery is hidden behind the rear seat trim panel on the right and not easily accessible. Come to think of it, with all my previous cars which were non-hybrids I used to listen to the sound of morning start and always followed the practice of replacing the battery the first instance I noticed a drag in starter motor response. My target usage was  4 years even with auto boxes. Now with a hybrid I am a bit clueless.

Stafford changed my battery in 24 months after i complained of low fuel consumption and after a Hybrid battery scan etc etc. After that fuel consumption returned to normal level 13-14Km/L (Vezel)
