Question about 2006 Toyota Avalon XLS
I recently purchased this vehicle and noticed that the factory bulbs provided almost no back-up lighting. I have replaced factory bulbs with "Standard" series LED 50 lumen 194/921 bulbs at a cost of $8.99 each found at carid.com. This resulted in minimal improvement. I am considering going to the carid.com "PlaZma" series LED 400 lumen 194/921 at a cost of $21.95 each. The price seems exorbitant but I am willing to pay it for safety's sake if they will provide adequate back-up lighting. Is this the proper remedy or is there a better, less expensive one? Thank you.

replace the O2 sensor for cylinder bank #2, that is the sensor before the catalytic converter, bank 2 is the back across from the bank that # 1 cylinder is in, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and see if that clears the problem. see photo of engine banks

you can try to reinitialize it if the cables are ok. but it that doesn't help you will have to replace unit. sorry but toyota sometimes do not always think the way we do when it comes to saftey for our children. it would cost them to much to recall this.

If the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced, the light needs to be reset at the time of repair.
If your mechanic does not have the equipment to reset the light, he can not accurately diagnose the light either and is likely just guessing.
Find a new mechanic, this guy smells like trouble.
