    I have the same problem with my 2004 Toyota Solara the MPG gauge reads from "0" to "99" how can it be reset?

    The default setting for the MPG gauge is "instant"; which means that the readout is real-time with what the ECU is doing with the fuel injectors.

    You want it set to "average"

    Use the "DISP" button on the right of the steering wheel to cycle thru the modes.

If you refer to the owner's manual the reset info is in there. If you don't have a manual, go to the Toyota website and see if you can download one there.

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.

SOURCE: "Needs Maintenance" light on 2006 Sienna

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!

SOURCE: 2006 toyota solara, alarm keeps going off

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.

2006 f150- temperature gauge stays cold but "check gauges" flashes in mini message center.


Since the temp gauge is not working correctly, you get the warning message.
Could be a faulty temp sensor or a problem in the wiring harness.

My Toyota Solara would'nt turn over. It started right up after jumped. The the temp gauage was just below red and didn't go down. How can I tell if it's the battery or something else?


9 times out of 10 its gonna be the battery. It simply dosent have the amperage needed to turn the car over. When you hook it up to another battery it carrys the load from the two combined. I would replace it or borrow a battery from another car and see if that works. If so you got it fixed.

The info that is gatthered on your display is taken from the engine ecu which is calculating average mpg, average distance, how many miles left in your tank etc. The only faulty part is your dash insert (speedo clocks). As you probably gather all the info is gathered electronically,from your throttle movement to the altitude of the vehicle which along with many other statistics is calculating your mpg, it wont be your ecu or would experience more seroius problems, so I am betting on your dash clocks,but get it diagnosed before spending money, hope this helps.
