The sec displayed is security code in case radio is stolen it cant be used without entering the code. Owner may have disconnected battery and didnt put a memory saver in lighter outlet so it locked. If you go to dealer they can retrive the code for you then you enter code and radio should work.unless they changed the factory code. If not and code from dealer works keep in car or safe place so you have it. Usually no charge to do retrival at dealer takes 2 minutes. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Toyota Avalon 2000 xls cd player does not work

If you are using "home-made" or "burnt" CDs, this can happen. Sometimes, you can remove the radio from the dash, and unplug it. That may reset the CD player, and the discs will eject.
It works for me about 85% of the time. Hope this helps.

Some dealers put the radio's antitheft code in the owners manual. If it's not there call your local dealer and they can reset the code for a fee.

Toyota 1995 Avalon. 15 Amp fuse for the Radio and AC blows when I hit a small pot hole.


Your problem is likely a bare wire under the ash that is hitting metal when it moves. You'll have to open up the dash and trace out you wire harness, Start at the radio connection and work back looking for a bare spot in the insulation or maybe even jjust a crack in it. Tape it up and try to reposition it so it doesn't hit metal or chafe again. Hope this helps.

Secuirty Code for 97 Avalon


Sorry , it is different for each vehicle. The toyota dealership should be able to tell you based on the VIN # of the vehicle. If your car happened to come with an owners manual or service manual , look through it for a hand written # . People often write them down so they don't forget them. Good luck.
