If the light says SERVICE only it is simply a servide reminder light and will go out after approx. two minutes. You should be able to reset it by removing a small black rubber plug on the face of the insturment cluster. under the plug is a small black plunger. Push down on the plunger with a pen until it clicks.

If there is no plug look for a small black button (not the odometer reset button) about 3mm in diameter. Push the plunger down and it will reset.

Hope this helps.

2003 Toyota Avalon xls model all lights and dials on instrument panel go off and engine stops when I go over bumps. I wait 2 minutes and car starts up again and runs fine until I go over bumps again.


The very first thing I would check would be if the battery cables are clean and tight. After that I'd lean towards a bad ignition switch. Do you have a ton of keys on your keyring? wiggle your key while its on to see if you can recreate the problem.

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.
