P0171 is a lean code. Open the hood, and locate the mass air flow sensor. Small black thingy in the intake tube between the air filter box and the engine, held in with 2 small screws. Remove the connector, remove the screws, and remove the sensor. Look into the sensor, you are going to see a couple of wires deep inside it. They will probabaly be "fuzzy" looking. Spray some brake cleaner on the wires until they are nice & clean. This will cure the P0171 code. Then check the air filter; replace it if it is dirty.

P1130 is an air-fuel sensor code, bank one, sensor one. More often than not, when we see this code, we replace the air-fuel sensor. Buy the replacement from you Toyota dealer, because the aftermarket sensors will not send the proper signal to the ECU, and you will be upset for having to buy a second sensor.

P0440 is a leak in the evaporative side of the fuel system; this looks after the fumes of the fuel in the tank. There are several reasons for seeing a P0440, like leaking vacuum lines, faulty fuel cap, rusty fuel filler tube at the cap, etc. This is kind of difficult to rectify without the proper equipment needed to diagnose what & where the actual leak is.
Hope this helps, please consider kind remarks regarding this solution. Thanks.

Toyota avalon 2001,vsc,vscoff,engine check lights are on

Hello, the check engine light turning on will turn the other lights on as well even if there is nothing wrong with those systems, so the first thing to do is to find out why the light is on, most autoparts stores like autozozne, pep boys etc usually diagnose this at no charge, they give you the diagnostic codes and explain to you what should be replaced. If you still have questions please reply here.

How to reset the check engine light on a 1999 toyota avalon xls

You need to have a code reader/scan tool hooked up to retrieve the code/s that triggered the engine light. You can have this done at most auto parts stores for free. Try Auto zone, Checkers, Napa, or Murray's. The engine light will eventually go out if the computer does not receive any codes after many cycles turning the ignition on and off. It will not go out if there are codes still present. After you've retrieve the code/s bring them back here and we will have a better understanding of what caused them.

Flashing A/C button

You need to replace the A/C Magnetic clutch relay, located in the under hood fuse box. From the dealer, the part is about $80, though you can pick it up for a bit cheaper from your local autoparts store. It is a 2 minute fix, and a very, very common problem.

Check engine light on;engine codes p0420 and p0773

I looked up the codes you posted.
P0420 is showing a bad oxygen sensor on bank #1, the one down by the catalytic converter.
P0773 is an electrical problem with the shift solenoid E.
A bad oxygen sensor would cause lower fuel milage.
