If you run across a 2019 Toyota (in this case a Camry but also Rav 4) that the radio starts rebooting over and over. Make sure that the radio software is up to date, disconnect the battery for half hour and then if that fails, put the key in, set the parking brake, engine off and put it in reverse for 5 minutes. That should fix it. DensoTen rep I spoke with, it’s the navigation unit that has the radio stuck in a loop. Reverse interrupts the comms with nav long enough for it to reset.

There’s a little thing pop out above the shifter in front of park you stick your key not the key fob but the key in there push it down then you can put it in reverse

putting it in reverse (engine off) worked for me! Thank you! The tip how to put it reverse worked, too.

Can you clarify: When you put it in "reverse", do you have to power the radio with engine-off. I tried and the car keeping beeping as a warning, which I ignored. However, it did not help.

Thank you for posting this! I got my fuel pump replaced for my rav4 due to the recall and when they disconnected my battery it caused my radio screen to turn on and off over and over again. They had no idea what to do. I got home and fixed it myself.

Do you turn on the car with like the lights and ac running or everything off and the key just in the first position to turn.
