SOURCE: I saw ECT-5 Manu show

Engine Coolent Tempreature. Make sure that the radiator is full, check only when eng is cold. If rad is full then you might need to replace the thermostat as your engine tempreature is either too low or too high.

What does ECT-S MANU light shows on dash board for RAV-4 mean


It's a feature of the transmission to hold it in gear manually, then it will not shift automatically like when climbing a hill in the mountains.

What is the function of the manu & power buttons?


If I understand your question, the manu allows you to shift like a regular stick shift. The power will allow the revs to go higher than in normal for extra power/acceleration.

I don't really have a problem per se. I bought a 1997 RAV4 and I was curious what the 2 buttons on the dash do for the transmission. One says manu and the other says pwr. Also my insurance company...


Never press the pwr button. If you press it, the vehicle will blow up after 10 seconds. You only press it if you get carjacked. So be careful. If you press it by accident, press it again before 10 seconds or goodbye RAV4.

What is the ECT power button for on the 1997 rav4


The ECT button (which stands for "Electronically Controlled Transmission")
changes the shift points for the automatic transmission. When engaged,
the transmission shifts later, allowing the engine to get to a higher
power level and accelerate faster. Gas mileage is usually reduced in
this mode. Use it when you need to get up to speed faster; for example,
to merge into fast moving traffic. The normal position for this switch
is OFF. ECT acts like a turbo. Now dont go on street racing ;)

MANU button on RAV4


The PWR button (power) is like a sports mode. It keeps in lower gears for longer so you can gain more speed. Handy for overtaking or fast lane changing. Not wise to use this all the time due to poor fuel economy.

The MANU button (manual) allows you to operate the gears manually. With MANU on and gear lever in L, it will drive in 1st. Gear lever in 2, it will drive in 2nd. Gear lever in D, it will drive in 3rd. If Overdrive is enabled then D will give you 4th gear instead.

My husband just called from the road asking if I knew what it meant with the ETC light in our 1996 RAV4 came on. Any info. I can call him back with? Thank you!


ECT stands for Electronically Controlled Transmission. When you push the button in, there should be a light on the dash that says "ECT POWER". This changes the normal shift times (based on engine vacuum, rpm, and throttle position) to a later point. This means simply that the engine rpms will go higher before shifting to a higher gear when you're accelerating. It helps build speed more quickly but uses more gas to do so.
