Unfrotunately, due to the age, the burning smell is possible coming from a short inside the player.....I would suggest that you pull the fuse, so that it does not functioin anymore, and replace ASAP, as I have seen a simple short turn into a bigger problem

Your 1997 Avalon will not work the same as when it was new. Midway is normal for a 1997 car without signs of leak. If you haven't change the coolant since you acquired the car, then flushing the old with new is the best suggestion.

1997 Avalon radio theft problem


Some dealers put the radio's antitheft code in the owners manual. If it's not there call your local dealer and they can reset the code for a fee.

Avalon knocking


Hi, airjeff8

In a nutshell, you need to get the valve cover off and see whats going on under there. It could be a broken camshaft or a valve/spring issue amongst other things.

Whip the cover off and have a look.
