#83 of 116 Key FOB/seat control
Feb 13, 2007 (8:11 am)
We're looking at a 2007 Avalon Limited, with the Smart Key system. I'm curious if the individual key fobs are 'related' to the memory seat positioning (one fob sets to memory 1 and the other sets to memory 2)?
The salesguy didn't know the key fob proximity adjusted the seats, but Toyota website says it does. I want to be able to have it set to me when I get in the car, with my fob, and the same for wife. I guess the question is what happens when we walk up the car together?

You adjust the seat and mirrors for yourself and then press the "set" button and 1 or 2 on the door to memorize the positions. Your wife then does the same and presses the other button. Then, the car senses the fob for whoever is "in the drivers seat" and adjusts both accordingly (seat and outside mirrors -- not the seat extension, however).

I was curious what happened if we both got into the car, carrying our individual fobs? Drive it crazy?

It does not appear to be a problem as the proximity to the sensor is the determining factor. There is a problem, however, if you leave one fob in the car/trunk and then try to lock the car.
#87 of 116 Please help disable the beep-beeps on an '06 XLS

Hi folks. Any suggestions on disabling the beeps on an '06 XLS when locking or unlocking the car with the remote? I tried the directions in the manual (IIRC: with the door open, remove key, turn to on, etc.) and got nowhere. The instructions say the car will respond with 2 beeps, but I've gotten none so far.

The service manager and a salesman couldn't disable the beeps either. The sales guy suggested holding one button down all while following the steps in the owner's manual. NOPE.
Now, if I can just find a comfortable seat position and deal with the lack of a fold-down rear seat I might just keep the car.
I guess I didn't mention that after I took 5 weeks off from work to care for my 85-year-old parents and get them moved into assisted living my father gave me the car. He was doing fine when he bought it, but then needed back surgery.
He's given me some nice things over the years, but never a car. It had a $39,600 sticker (he paid 33 and change) and only has 6,000 miles on it - 4k when I started driving it in December.

P.S. - Shame it wasn't a truck. Do you know how much stuff 2 people can collect in 62 years of marriage? I'm moving furniture to the assisted living center, cleaning out their house and selling it.

I had to take my 2007 LTD (with the smart key) to the dealer, they hooked it up to the computer programmer and changed it. It was in for warranty work so there was no cost.

I had the very same problem. I determined that the small, 12VDC motor that controls this action was bad. It was difficult to replace, but as it was over $350 to replace the door latch assembly (per dealer) and the motor (FC-280PT-22125) was less that $1.50, I felt it was worth it in the end. I took some photos of the dissassembly.
I found the motor on ebay: Here.

I am tag16c. You referred to my ad about the door lock actuator motors on ebay in one of your post several months ago. Thank you sooooo much.
I have had a hard time finding them but finally I have found an exact replacement for the Mabuchi FC 280PT-22125. I have tested it and verified the specifications and the only difference is they are more expensive.
The link in your post is now invalid but search for FC 280PT 22125 on eBay and the new ad will appear.
Forum rules dictate I cannot announce the ad myself because I am the seller.
Check out my eBay ad and spread the news.
#92 of 116 2003 Avalon Key Fob

Recently purchased 2003 Avalon that had been wrecked. Have fixed. Did not have the key fob with the car. Could anyone furnish a picture of the correct fob? Also instructions on how to program fob?
