Toyota 2000 Avalon left signal light working intermittently

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!

    The bulbs on the left side were the first things the mechanics replaced but since the problem is intermittent no one seems willing to go farther saying they don't want to guess wrong.

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.

SOURCE: Left turn signal does not blink properly.

More than likely it is going to be your clock spring behind the steering wheel.

SOURCE: dash lights go off intermittently

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.

Left turn indicator intermittent how to fix?


The turn signal indicator switch could be corroding (getting rusted on the inside). You could take it out & break the corrosion/rust & lubricate it with wd40 & put it back in..hopefully it solves the issue. If not, then you might need to get another indicator switch. You start off by taking off the steering wheel neck panels

I don't have any reverse lights on my 2000 toyota avalon


if the bulbs are good, then check the signal from the transmission range switch.you can check that at the bulb socket with the park brake set, the key on/engine off and put trans in reverse. use a test light and check power in the light socket. no power indicates bad fuse, bad wiring, or bad range switch.

Windshield wipers work but interminent settings don't


most likely cause is the wiper switch has gone bad and unable to 'time' the intermittent speeds.the intermittent speeds work on a resistor type system where low and high speeds add direct voltage.

1999 toyota avalon horn works intermitely


I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.

It is located right under the seering wheel.

Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.
