I also have a 2000 Avalon XLS with the 6 cd player and just started having problems with it. Was the dealer able to repair it or did they replace it? Any idea of how much they wanted to repair it?
#53 of 236 6 cd changer problem
Jun 27, 2005 (3:44 am)
My wife's 2000 xls had the same problem when we bought it used. It was a Toyota CPO, so we did take it back to the dealer. They had to exchange the unit, but we never got our 1 disc that we had in it. It was no biggie though. I had a Mozart throw away disc that I was testing it with when it happened. It also happened in a new Nissan I had once. It seems that most of the dealers have to send it back to the stereo manufacturer for repair. Usually they make no bones about the fact that the chances for disc recovery are slim. If your car is out of warranty, I would take it to a well known car stereo shop first, you may have a better chance of getting your discs back. Good luck.
#54 of 236 Need Cassette Player for 2005 Avalon Limited
Jun 28, 2005 (7:01 am)
We have a 2005 Avalon with the Navigation system. A Cassette player is not an option. Any Suggestions For Adding/Integrating An External/Internal Cassette Player On Our Avalon? When traveling, we enjoy using libraries books on tapes. We want to continue using cassette tapes if we can find an Okay solution.
#55 of 236 iPod or Aux Options for JBL system
Jun 28, 2005 (3:35 pm)
Does anyone know how I could add an ipod to this system? I have a 2005 Avalon LTD with the upgraded JBL system but without the XM satellite option. There are several systems one can buy online that attaches to factory Toyota radios for either adding an ipod or simply adding an Aux input.
These systems typically specify they are for factory systems with a CD changer option. My system has an in-dash 6 CD system, so I am not sure it qualifies (are they referring to external only?).
Also, because by my system is made to add an XM satellite and it obviously has some sort of interface for another audio source, I was wondering if I could somehow use that option.
Has anyone come up with a solution? I've tried FM transmitters, but the reception inside the Avalon is terrible, and there is no cassette option in this model since I have the Nav system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

#57 of 236 JBL Woofer, break easily?
Jun 22, 2005 (9:15 pm)
My avalon xls, 2000, purchased yesterday, came with a JBL woofer that sounds fuzzy; like it is torn. Very annoying.
I think this is a common problem.
Is it common?
Easy fixes? [eg: Kragen woofer, about $20]

Same thing happened when I bought my 2000 XLS (only wires had been cut). I replaced with an $18 versions from Checker. Works great. I'm not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, but it sounds good, and cranks up loud enough to vibrate the rear-view mirror!. I think I removed the seat to make installation easier. Still a pretty easy do-it-yourself job.

I took my care to the dealer and he pulled the fuse out to reset it.
