Question about 2004 Toyota Avalon
Turn your headlights on and the radio should work. This is the only way the radio in my 1997 Toyota Avalon XL works! crazy but true!

It being an avalon it is a higher end car. a lot of cars these days have external amplifiers factory installed. I would start checking fuses. it might be an aux power fuse or it might have radio fuse. they generally have two fuses that power them though. one that supplies 12 volts continuously so that all presets remain in memory, and the 12 volt switched power source that tells the radio that the key is on. I know that you said that the radio is functioning properly just no sound but your best bet would be to just start checking fuses. there is a fuse box inside car and also a fuse box under hood. you generally have to remove a small black cover and you will see the outside fuse box. when checking fuses though pay attention to anything that isn't working such as the cigarette lighter or horn, these are sometimes the power supplies to the radio. hope I didnt confuse you but an 05 is kinda too new for you to have a bad radio. more than likely something little just one of those aggrivating little jobs of finding what it is.
