Customer Question
I have code C1201...

I have code C1201 Engine Control System Malfunction on a 2005 Toyota Avalon

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

No just left Adavance and they gave me 4 codes of issues with my car C1201, P0300, P0441, P0445

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avalon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't tried anything yet b/c I wasn't quite sure how to go about resolving Engine Control System Malfunction

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No this is it

Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.

Are you experiencing any engine performance symptoms like skipping or lack of power?

No

Ok. Great. One more question.... Can you re-check that last p-code? P0445 is not a valid code for this vehicle. Is it P0455 perhaps?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
P0455, no skipping or loss of power

My apologies for the delay. We had some technical difficulties here on the site last night. If you still need help on this, please let me know. Again, my apologies for the delay.
