All the buttons have to be reset to the radio stations you had before. The clock will need to be set to the correct time too.

SOURCE: keyless entry remote

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:

Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks.

Reset factory alarm on a toyota avalon xls 1996

If the alarm system has a battery remove it otherwise removing the car battery for a while may reset it. In emergency contact your local toyota dealers mechanics department and they may be able to help you at no cost.
If you put a general enquiry on google you might get lucky, do not be too specific. i.e. toyota 1994 alarm reset procedure

Battery warning light came on while driving then later went off. Voltage at battery was 13-14+ then only 12-13 when light went back on later.

Try taking the cables off the battery terminals and cleaning them with a battery brush. Then make sure they are tight when you put them back on. They may not have been tightened properly when the new battery was installed. If that doesn't work take the battery back to where you bought it and have them test it under load. It may be new but it may have one cell that is weak. If that checks good then I would start the car and remove the positive battery terminal. Use your multimeter from the ground to positive terminal to make sure the voltage regulator is putting out enough voltage.

Reset check engine light on 2000 avalon

stop the car and turn it off and don't forget to remove the key. the open the hood and find the battery. Then remove the negative battery terminal connector completely from the battery. with the battery disconnected turn on you headlamps as you would for night time driving. Wait an half an hour so all the current drains out the the electrical system. after the half hour TURN OFF THE HEADLAMPS BEFORE RECONNECTING THE BATTERY! Next reconnect the negative battery terminal connector back on the negative battery terminal don't forget to tighten it down. Put the key in the ignition turn the computer on to on BUT wait 5 seconds before actually starting the car, then start the car as normal and drive the car at least 25 miles 10 city 15 highway so the car can relearn all it functions again **Note first time start the car my be rough due that it need to relearn if it is acting rough apron start up let it idle for a bit before driving so it can calm down**

1998 Toyota Avalon XLS -- Will not start. No clicking.

It definitely sounds like a weak battery issue. Ck your connections at the battery for cleanliness & tightness. U need to have the batt checked along w the charging system & ckd for electrical shorts. If no problem is found that is the starting line. It may be a prob in the ignition system etc. if the problem isn't found by here. Good Luck

Hyundai audio system in acting weird?

What happened, you forgot to pay your radio bill? Now for the solution. I suspect you tend to turn on the headlights to see in the darkness. That may be the hint that will help find the problem! Try turning on your headlights at the times you say it works and see what happens. If the radio goes off, you have a short somewhere that shorts out the radio power!

The audio system stopped functioning when I removed the battery terminal head but it is showing code on the display.

Hello,I am a Guru here on fixya and will answer your question.They do have codes that you have to reprogram back in to get them to work after disconectting the battery.Most of the time you have to take it to the dealer to get the code put in it.

I have a 1995 Toyota Avalon XLS. Something keeps draining the battery!..the battery was new in July. If I take off the battery terminal when the car is not running..and then put it back on..the car...

So you have a parasitic power drain when the system is off. You can narrow the fault quite quickly if you have access to an ammeter (multimeter set to DC current). connect the ammeter in series between the battery negative terminal and its cable. Note the power consumption when everything is off. Remove and return each fuse in turn and each time note the current change. Check them all just to be thorough. There will be one circuit fuse that will be responsible for the majority of the current draw. It is this circuit that needs to be examined for a short or maybe a light being left on (glove compartment and trunk courtesy lights are the usual culprits). It maybe that you cannot spare the time immediately to resolve the issue so in the mean time leave this fuse out and reconnect the battery, which should now hold its charge. Good luck
