Question about 2001 Toyota Avalon
The dials on my 2001 Avensis dashboard keep bouncing and my clock and odometer keep flashing.
It came out of the blue. Any ideas on how to fix it?
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.

SOURCE: Toyota Avensis heater problem
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

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...

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info-Appararently quite a common occurence & particularly annoying on a long drive"
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.
