Question about 2006 Toyota Solara
The gauge that shows what your average mpg should be. up by the clock and temp guage.
The battery was changed so power was lost. After turning the car back on the mpg guage keeps changing from 5mpg up to 99. how can this be reset
Check the manufacture's Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) rating. Some manufacturers recommend a minimum CCA. If your CCA is below the manufacturer's specs, it can cause your car to run erratically. This also can cause problems with your computer and give you faulty DTC's. (Diagnostic Trouble Codes - Service Engine Soon Light) This especially causes problems with General Motors cars. I'm always hearing of people with these problems. Let me know how it works.

I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:
Turn the key ON
Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.
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. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.
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.
Hope this helps!

Those cars have a frequency sensor that is attuned to the exact sound frequency of breaking glass. Are there any noises nearby that resemble glass shattering? Wind chimes? Any type of extraneous noise at the freq of glass breakage will set off the alarm.
