Hi, I have a 1997Avalon, the check engine light came on shortly after filling my gas tank. the dealership did a diagnostic check and said it was probably one of three transmission sensors or a loose wire. Its been two years and all is well except for that check engine light coming on and off. Is there an easy fix to this problem? Would disconnecting the battery work ?

Autozone usually gives yu a printout of what the codes mean. Do yu have more information to give us here?

Otherwise look up the DTC's online and come back with some more info on what components the codes are for.

I would make sure your Gas cap is in good condition and on Tightly. Sometimes the VSC MIL's come on for Evap pressure loss malfunctions. Just some obvious stuff to start out with.

BTW yu don't have to disconnect the battery for ONE hour. Just disconnect and press brake pedal several times. This works for me and many others.

Hello to All...........Just purchased a 2005 Avalon XLS in Feb. 08. Trpped to Fl. and unbelievable gas mileage! Plus loads of power and drives like a dream. I have the steering noise that is the intermediate steering shaft I have researched. I have owned 2 Cressida's since 1994, the 84 had 150K when I sold it to a person on Ebay. I still have a 1991 that I drive everyday in the summer......130K. Great cars! I do believe that the Cressida's were built better than the Avalon. The Avalon is such a highway cruiser. Look forward to reading the columns on Tundra Solutions. Sferguson42

Re: my 06 Avalon bad stoplight switch. I can see it by standing on my head, but how do I get at it to change it? Pull the dash panel?

I just purchased a 2007 Limited today with 18K miles on it. I am giving my 1998 Avalon with 83K to my daughter and she will sell her 2003 Camry with 180K miles! We are a Toyota family and have had great success with the autos we have had.
I will be asking questions in another thread regarding all of the bells and whistles on my "new" Avalon.
I have enjoyed reading all of the threads in this forum and thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,
I have a 2007 Avalon with the non-touch screen navigation system. The version is 6.1 and I am trying to get the lastest DVD. I checked with the dealer - it costs $250 and takes 4 weeks to get it. Does anybody know if it's worth the update or can I get it cheaper somewher else?

Hello! New to the forum, just bought a 2000 Avalon xl with JBL sound system, and so many issues with the system. Went and put an after market deck in with Bluetooth, and the problems we are encountering are extensive. System didn't work, except right dash and door speakers to start, short somewhere in the lines, had everything re-wired by installation place, and were told most speakers were blown. Need to know what sizes are in the front doors, the dash, and suggestions? Amp had to be bypassed due to the short as well. Any one else have this issue with a professional after market deck install?
Love the way this car looks and drives!!
