My 2013 Avalon has an awful smell when starting up lingers a while. I think it's coming from the AC. The dealer doesn't know how to fix this smell problem.

Obviously the dealer does not have a service department. Don't shop there anymore. Find an appliance repair shop and ask them about your problem, see if they have solved this problem before. If they act like they have never heard of this problem, keep searching. You don't need to be paying technicians who don't have the experience you need.

Xantrex inverter/ charger smells like burning electrical

I would call or e-mail the manufacturer of the inverter. The dealer or dealers may know the issue but likely the manufacturer will be more help.
Some devices like an inverter will have a smell in the beginning, power supplies are like that. You said that the inverter didn't get hot but smell indicates something is hot.

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.

Toyota Avalon 1998 A/C Push Button

If when button is pushed in it stays in the AC-light lights up, then you may have another problem like a leak in the system N0/low Freon in system and AC would n't work. But if the switch doesn' t stay push in when its pushed then the switch is BAd and needs to be replace and that will solve the problem. If the switch stays push in with NO AC light on then you may have a bad Ac fuse. Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya
