Hi Guys,

Just bought a 2011 Avensis xi Wagon.

Does anybody know what is the "ON -FOOT-OFF" small round switch for ?

Also, is there a recommended service interval for its CVT fluid ? 

Thanks

The Avensis was only built in Europe (UK) and models for the Japanese market were exported From the UK.

Here in NZ, most cars are imported from Japan

Parking brake switch?

Only other mention that I found was https://priuschat.com/threads/on-foot-off.156270/

Does your car have footwell illumination & is that it?

Hi Scott,

Seen that forum as well. It does nothing for the illumination.

On or off, the light will be there when the driver door is open.

It does nothing for the parking brake.

No dash display either. Had a look at the interior illumination, but no difference, on or off. 

Checked the hand brake function, but seen no difference. Strange ?

just to be clear, this would not be for the overhead light but for ambient lighting in the front footwells that can be on even with the door shut (e.g. my 2012 Avensis T-Spirit had it but that was controlled from the head unit iirc.).

No, not the overhead light certainly. The switch (on or off), will do nothing for the ambient light, and has no effect on the parking brake either. 

Since I do not have the original manual, can not determine its function. Hopefully, someone will know ?

Other question is about the CVT Fluid. At how many kilometers does Toyota recommend a replacement ? There is no dipstick to be found, so guess it is sealed.

Did you ever find this out? I'm wondering the same thing .

Has anyone discovered what this on-foot-off switch is for yet?  
We just bought a Japanese import 2009 Wish 2L and it has the exact same, seemingly no-function switch below left of the steering wheel. 
it doesn’t seem to change foot lights or door lights.
