Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
2000 Toyota Avalon with an intermittent signal. Can't duplicate at the Toyota dealership. Have taken it in three times. Find that sometimes I can raise up on the turn signal switch column just slightly and get the left blinker to come on when it is acting up. I am aware when it is not working because the sound changes to a fast blinking sound and the dash shows no blinking arrow. Would like to get this fixed so other drivers don't become annoyed with me!
HI. try checking the bulbs for security ( ie tight in the holder), if not check the wattage on each bulb to ensure the rating is not to high. good luck. ps. if you are a smoker check there may be ash down the stalk making a bad earth.

I'm no expert, I recently purchased a 2003 vibe. I noticed the automatic headlight's sensors can be super-sensitive, about an hour hours before dusk they'll kick my headlights on (when the sun is still shining!), or sometimes when I go into an underpass, and then sometimes they'll realize it's light enough and turn themselves off. This would cause your dash lights to go to the 'headlights on' mode and turn the headlamp signal on, the intensity is controlled by the dimmer/dome light control on the left side of the dash. Check to see if the dimmer is down too far, as this could cause the lights to dim when the automatic headlights turn on. It's also possible that the dimmer is not working, thus no power is getting to the dash lights through the dimmer. Try testing it by starting the car in daylight, then manually turn on the headlights, then adjust the dimmer. Like I say, I'm no expert, just guessing because I've noticed it happen similarly on my Vibe, but my dimmer was at half-way, as I like it for night driving. Someday, I'd like to disable the automatic sensors and DRL.
