Question about 2006 Toyota Camry

Dashboard display issue, preferences change

My father owns a newer Toyota Camry and sometimes when he starts the car his dash display will shutdown and then come back up. After this interruption/reboot/whatever the display units have changed from his preferred units to metric (L/100km, degreesC, etc). He manually changes them back but he is concerned that this may be a symptom of a more significant problem. Have any other owners experienced this? Anyone have a fix?

The lights inside dashboard knobs & multi-function display went out


I'm not sure what model Toyota you have, but in a Camry, the cause is most likely a blown fuse. This is a 10A fuse labelled "Gauges" located behind a cover in the dash panel

Hi, how do i put off ''maintenance required'' sign on my toyota camry 2007 car dashboard?Just did the servicing, the sign is still there?


with the key in the off position press and hold the odometer trip reset button on the dash. Turn the key to the run position while continueing to hold the reset button, do not start the car. The odemeter display should change to all dashes and then the dashes will start to go off one at a time. Once they are all out the odometer will display all zeros and then return to its normal display. Sometimes the trip A odometer needs to be displayed before starting and sometimes the trip B.

Your owners manual will give you some more insight if needed.

Battery changed on 2002 toyota camry, speedometer pegged at 140


Try disconnecting the battery again, only the + side. Wait for 3-5 min before hooking back up. Turn the switch on but not over, then start the car after a few seconds.

07 camry oil filter location v6


The oil filter is no longer a "spin-on" type filter. Toyota has changed to the "cartridge" type filters that are in a cylindrical housing on the engine. You need to remove the filter housing to access the cartridge. Make sure that you replace the o-rings that come out with the cartridge filter with the new ones supplied in the new filter box. To reset the light, follow these directions:

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.
