Question about 2006 Toyota Avalon XLS

Open Question

Inferior lighting from back-up lights.

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.

Makes beeping sound


Did you just recently purchase this vehicle? When you first turn the key on (don't start the engine) it does a bulb check. Look to see if the 'Air Bag' light comes on. If not, then you need to replace that bulb. It beeps to let you know the bulb isn't working.

Suggestion for Headlight Replacement


h4 head lights are normally 55/65 watts
head light brilliance is controlled by the condition of the reflector , the head light glass and head light alignment /aim
with the fitment of relays you can get up to 65 /85 watt bulbs but if the reflector is plastic then it will melt with bigger bulbs

Blinker issues


These are two seperate issues:

the light staying on solid green indicates a bulb blown at either the front or rear, this could also be a bad ground connection but usually is a bulb issue. If you replace the bulb, be sure to use bulb grease to seal our moisture.

As far as the signal arm returning to neutral and cancelling the signal, that is controlled by a part within the steering wheel itself, and could just be worn. It's a Plastic/Nylon piece that pushes the signal arm manually when you turn the steering wheel sufficiently. That would be a dealer part, or something purchased from a salvage vehicle.

good luck

Have 2002 sante fe just recently had new transmission installed new battery but today its very cold out car started up ok but noticed for the first 15 minutes my brake light and battery light stayed on...


cold can play hell with electronics. if it happens again (provided the battery is the proper one for that vehicle) hit the accelerator and see if the lights go out. sometimes just a good warm up will rectify the issue. happy holidays

2005 xgl350 how do i replace the brake light?


hi friend,
step 1
Determine which lights are burned out by asking a friend to hit the brakes while you stand behind the car.
  • Step 2 Purchase the bulbs from an auto parts store or a large home and garden chain store. If you don't know what type of bulb to get, bring the burned out light bulb inside the store with you (see steps below to remove).
  • Step 3 Open the trunk of the vehicle. You'll notice two Torx screws on the side of each tail light assembly. Use your A-T15 Torx screwdriver to un-screw the assembly on the side with the burned out bulb.
  • Step 4 Slide the tail light assembly out toward the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the proper connector for the brake light and pull out the spent bulb.
  • Step 5 Insert the new bulb.
  • Step 6 Slide the tail light assembly back into the car and replace the Torx screws.
  • Step 7 Replace the bulb on the other side with the other new bulb in the pack you purchased, since it will probably burn out soon as well.
    hope this helps u

    2002grand am daytime running lights


    99 - 04 grand am.

    I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.

    The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.
