Question about 2003 Toyota Avalon XLS

1 Answer

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.

Instrument panel gauges shut off, speedometer needle goes whacko and engine cuts off when I go over bumps. Engine restarts after I wait 2 minutes. Also temp gauge goes from normal to hot rapidly hen car is running and then returns to normal with no signs of car overheating

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.

the other areas the fault could be located are in your meter circuit plate (which is part of your combination meter), it could be in the wiring, or possibly your multi display (also part of your combination meter)

I have 2000 Avalon xls. i faced several problems with the check engine light. It came on and my engine started shacking hardly for several seconds and sometimes minutes. i did a check and the computer came...


When the Check Light Flashes vs: being on steady,
you stop using the vehicle, as that indicates a misfire
bad enough to damage the Exhaust Converter

So obviously, you should have gone to a repair shop
a long time ago & resolved whatever issues are there

My 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS squeals loadly when I start the engine and the fan is on in the car. I turn of the fan and it stops. After driving I turn the fan back on and don't get the squeal anym


Almost certainly one or more of the drive belts (not the timing belt) on the engine needs an increase in tension. It may tell you about this in the owner's handbook.

If not you can either ask a mechanic to do this straightforward job for you, or try it yourself. You can download a zipped service manual from here

and look these belts up in the charging section and steering section.

Sounds like water intrusion into one or more Wheel Speed Sensors. You need to have it scanned and see which sensors are dropping out when they get wet. Then replace them or have them replaced.

(2002/2003 Toyota Avalon XLS).... I need to know what fuses control the tempature, RPM, Speedometer, & Fuel Gauges. As well as the in dash information center ie; time, date, fuel economy range. Or...


There isn't a fuse for this. Like you said dash board control module. The Instrument panel (IP) is a computer, it is fed by the ECM (engine control module) You could have a loose contact with the plug in the IP since you have lost everything. But I wouldn't rule out that the IP has gone bad.

See toyota technical service bulliten AC005-99.
This is a expensive repair but if you just unplug the the air inlet servo motor(behind the glove box )
the air should start to work but without fresh/recirc control.
