Question about 1999 Toyota Avalon
I have 1999 Avalon European specifications, suffering of the check engine indicator, always indicate on if I disconnect Battery finger it goes of for some time. No one can check to find the real problem because they don’t have European specifications software.how can i know what is wrong?
With no one around you having the Euro-spec diagnostics, you may have to trace the problem based on the behavior of the car. What is it doing (or not doing) that is different from before? Do you have issues with driveability? Transmission shifting issues? Poor gas mileage? Something else maybe?
If you can't diagnose via the computer and codes, it's going to come down to trial and error, and educated guesses, to find out what is wrong, and that'll have to be based on what you observe about the car's driving habits. It's not impossible by any means, but it won't be as easy since you won't know at least a starting point that the codes could give you.
Just for kicks, find out if there's an independent European shop near you (someone who caters to Audi, VW, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Saab, Volvo, etc), and call them up. Explain your situation and see if they either have the Euro software, can get it, or know someone who does - that may help a lot and they may actually have something that can scan your car.
