Toyota Avalon ProblemsMisfire and/or Check Engine Light Due to Failed Ignition Coil
On higher mileage vehicles, an engine misfire may develop and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a failed ignition coil. It is not uncommon to replace all the coils when the first one fails in order to prevent return trips to the repair shop.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.

Toyota Avalon RecallsSeat Heater Wiring Shorts And Causes Fire
For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements may short circuit when the seat cushion is compressed, and result in a fire hazard. Dealers will disconnect the seat heaters and refund the purchase price of the seat heaters free of charge to resolve the concern,
The occupant classification system may not appropriately detect an occupant in the passenger front seat, and as a result will not power the passenger frontal and knee air bags for deployment in an accident. Dealers will re-calibrate the occupant classification system free of charge to resolve the concern.
The pre-collision system may activate while driving due to the radar equipped with the vehicle recognizing steel plates or roadway joints as an object that should be avoided. Dealers will temporarily disable the system as a precaution at this time, and will notify owners of affected vehicles a second time when a permanent repair procedure is available. Repairs will be made free of charge.
