Sorry, my teleprompter wasn't working properly. Yes I have a button to raise it, for some reason I simply forgot as it always lowers itself & it just skipped my mind. Is your Avalon not still under warranty, it is a 2007. I would take a voltmeter & check the connection to see is it has 12 volts, perhaps this thing is fused & it blew, IF it is the motor I personally would first ask the dealers service dept.to repair it, if no then the area Rep, again if no, I would make it clear I was posting their answers on Edmunds. With Toyota's quality problems lately perhaps they might not want you to do so & oblige, who knows.

I will follow your advice BUT I believe it is the metal spring part, as when I bend it out it opens fine. I was thinking of trying to insert a small coil spring to eliminate this annoyance. As I said the one on the Camry actually broke & I replaced it. On a $36000 (list price ) vehicle I would expect better.

Help, 2007 Toyota Avalon Limited my smart key will not lock or unlock doors only a steady beep for about 2 sec, but will open the trunk and start the car. All doors are closed It worked fine before. The buttons on the remote still work so I dont think it is the battery. Any suggestions?
#14818 of 14961 2005 Avalon passenger and driver floors are wet
Jul 25, 2010 (3:38 am)
yesterday my wife and I noticed that both the passenger and driver floors were wet, we park the car in a garage, so it is not out in the rain, we have been using the AC a lot lately, could this be an AC drainage issue, the water seemed to come from below the floor mats.

Probably a clogged drainage hose BUT it seems far too soon in an 05, this usually takes a lot longer, of course I'm in NY & only use it for a couple of months. I'd try that first, before looking for a leak. ONly happened to me once in a Starion & it was 12 years old. .

I was hoping for a facelift for the 2011, guess we'll have to wait until next year.
On the sudden acceleration fix, make sure they re-flash your vehicle to safe-brake standards. Your engine should slow down immediately upon touching the brake.

Thank You for that info, hope its just a clogged drain.

The 2011 is a facelift. The front and rear ends are different and the dashboard completely redesigned (no more doors over the radio, etc). I will admit, though, that for a model introduced in 05 they could have done more to change it.
#14823 of 14961 Door Lock problem
Aug 15, 2010 (4:52 pm)
I've just bought 2006 avalon & 23K this week and it's really nice!!
But, i found one thing differnt from my Camry 2004,
when i trying to lock door remotely, i push lock button twice by habit.
then about 3~5 seconds later, engine automatically start and stop and serivce light on... ( engine not started)
Once it happened, I have to open the front door with key ( not remote).
This is normal? or I have to go to dealer to check up.
Thank you in advance.

tjay1, I have learned that it takes 3 presses to start the car with the remote but you must hold down the button on the last press to watch the lights come on and your car will start. The other thing is you should be able to just walk up to the car as long as you have remote in pocket and unlock the car just by pulling on the handle. You also should be able to lock car with remote in pocket by just pushing any button on any car door handle. Try these steps and let me know how you make out.
