SOURCE: electric door mirror repair

Hi.. It was an Avensis not a camry. Unfortunately the Avenssi was not on the drop down list.

Basically The bits on the back of the galss mirror did not seem to match up with the backplate. After trying several different ways I did the following.

1. remove the black casing this leaves a cover with several holes in it.

2 slide the lugs on the mirror furthest away from the door into the slot just to the left of the round circular backplte.

3 put a screwdriver through the rear housing hole near to the door. If you look through you will see a "lug sitting on a black lip. Use the screwdriver to force the lip away from the car. the lug will slip down the side of it. release the lip and it will secure the mirror.

Note the mirror does not seem to fit 100% correctly so I've added some tape for extra security.

Check your radiator level - if level is low and does not contain sufficient antifreeze your heater won't work - should cst a couple of quid to fix if that is the issue - and it's a doddle

SOURCE: Rear wiper constantly regardless of switch position

If the switch itself feels just the same as it always has then the most likely fault is that the rear wiper motor located behind the panel in the tailgate has suffered a failure of the self-parking mechanism: it's what ensures that after you turn the wiper off, the motor keeps running until the wiper is back in the parked position.

There are two major parts to the way it works: a self parking switch which works off a cam located in the wiper motor, and a back-emf brake which overcomes the inertia of the mechanism.

The simplest fix will be to just replace the motor assembly. You can get one from a scrapyard, but won't know whether it's about to fail for the same wear-related reasons. Alternatively fit a new or remanufactured unit. You'll also find that a good automotive electrician can usually fix the original motor, but as it's nearly ten years old there may be other wear-related issues waiting to bite you on the bottom so I'd personally go for a remanufactured unit from a trustworthy supplier. Such units normally come with a minimum one year warranty. Anything with just a 30 or 90 day warranty has likely just been taken from a scrapped vehicle, cleaned and given a shiny coat of paint...

SOURCE: i need to change the ECU in an 2001 'Y' plate Toyota Avensis (UK)

Look on the left wall next on the driver's side, tucked up under there, you should find 2, and I think one more under the seat. One is for the transmission. One is I don't know, and the other is the ecu, they will say what they are on them. I think the one under your seat is the ignitor, not sure. It will not be buried anywhere you can't get to, you have a obd2 plug somewhere that you plug in the tester to, it should be near that thing. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 toyota camry and my overdrive light keeps flashing on and off also, the speed odometer cable broke when this happened. what could be wrong

Keep driving it & your will ruin the transaxle,
if it isn't worn out already

You DO NOT use a vehicle with ANY Flashing Lights
or Fault Codes, in the systems

You do replace the broken cable before you
can diagnose anything else

I just bought a Tayota Avensis 2001 i want to check the milage, how do i go about doing that?

Hi there,

Turn the key to "ON" or "ACCESS".

Look for a button with "ODO" or "TRIP" written on it (either situated on the instrument cluster or on the dash). Pressing this button will cycle between the Trip meters and Odometer readings.

I have a toyota avensis from year 2000, the dash board lights and the back lights dont work, probably the fuse is burned, so i have to change it. I have searched the fuse which serves for these lights is...

2002 Toyota Avensis: You could have a bad fuse in one area and, you may have bulb connector issues in another area. Check your bulb retainers be sure the terminal connectors are free of corrosion. You can clean these connectors with electrical spray and a small, thin wire brush.

Even after the car is turned off, the clock on the dashboard stayed on and then the battery drained down over night. this never happened before, but it happened last night. Any suggestions.

if you hold down the odometer reset button and turn the key to the on position(not start position),and then let go of the odometer button the instrument cluster will then go through a self test all of the gauges will cycle and then all of the lights in the dash will do the same then look at the digital mileage read out and it will flash a TDC(Trouble Code) if there is a system problem,also if your battery is failing or getting weak it will cause other electrical problems even before it fails totally,write down the trouble code and call a dodge dealer or reputable shop and they can tell you what the code means.Hope this helps
