Cruise will not work on 2008 avalon

Make sure there aqre no warning lights on the dash on, check the brake fluid it needs to be near the full mark, check the brake lights and be sure they are all working, if the cruise indicator light does not turn on check the fuses on the inside dash at the lower left.

Cleaned the snow off the Avalon and noticed a loud pop and the right highbeam light had blown out. Within 10 minutes as driving heard the left highbeam light blow out. Never had this happen with any...

There is a Technical Service Bulletin regarding the high beam bulbs on the Avalon. TSB# 0044-10, NHTSA# 10033406. Mind you, this is not a recall, so any repairs the dealer makes will cost you dearly. Since the high beams are standard halogen bulbs, I would recommend that you replace them yourself with Sylvania long life bulbs. If the dealer replaces the entire assembly, it may involve the HID low beams to the tune of $1000 or more. You can contact your dealer and ask for information about the tsb, all the dealerships received the tsb. If he offers to repair it in accordance with the tsp, get it in writing that there will be no charge.

My 2008 Avalon cruise control increments by 5 MPH when i toggle the cruise control up or down. The book says it should increment by 1 MPH. Can i change the increment amount or do i need to take it to a...

You have the Laser Adaptive cruise control. Using the adaptive cruise control, it does indeed increment by 5MPH increments. The dash indicator has a series of parentheses ((( to show that it is on. The advantage to the adaptive system is that a laser measures the distance to the car in front of you and will slow the car to match the car in front, maintaining distance. It will even brake for you if it detects a collision is imminent.

To turn off the adaptive system (revert to regular cruise control), push the cruise control lever straight back for more than 1 second. The parentheses in the dash indicator will disappear. When using conventional cruise control (non-adaptive), the con tol will then increment the speed by 1MPH increments.

This is covered in the user manual at the end of the cruise control section.

Good Luck!!

2008 avalon limited that dies randomly esp. in reverse. Sometimes will restart, I had it towed this last time. help! dealer cannot replicate the problem as it happens randomly.

Best advice would be to leave this car with the dealer for a week or two for them to drive to see if they can replicate the problem. If the dealer is unable to fix the issue, you may have to file a complaint with Toyota. This is not a common complaint from Avalon owners that I'm aware of as of yet. Start keeping a detailed journal of when (dates and times) and EXACTLY what you are doing when this happens. With it dying randomly, I would say its a big safety issue... call the dealer for a tow every time it happens.

2008 Toyota Avalon Battery Problem

I doubt this is a smart key problem, the key uses a chip and its own battery. Something in the car is causing a drain, a light is staying on possibly. Trunk light, glove box light, under hood light... maybe you have a portable GPS unit plugging into the auxilary port? Just a thought. This is not a common problem that has been reported by Avalon owners as of yet.
