Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for trusting us with your Toyota question, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.
Are you available to discuss your question at this time?
When you say it has no power, do you mean if you press the gas pedal the rpm doesn't go up?
Hello! how are you doing today?
other than my problem fine
I will do my best to help. If I may ask, when you say it has no power, does that mean if you press the gas pedal the rpm doesn't move just like if the gas pedal is not working?
yes that is correct
OK Is the car near you at this time?
I can put it in drive and it rolls forward or in reverse
parked out in the street in front of my house
OK Can you go out and check and\or replace a fuse for me?
OK let me get you a location
Is it a V6 or 4 cylinder?
OK Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX a few moments.
Were there any warnings lights on with the engine running?
yes the check engine light
OK Go to the car, in the fuse box under the hood, you will find a 10A fuse labeled ETCS replace that fuse and see if the throttle works now
Use the 10A fuse labeled Horn to swap them
give me a few minutes
OK I will wait here
well the battery does not have enough power to start it, thus the original jump- by someone else. but that fuse is burnt out
my wife was at a gas station and asked someone for help and now this
OK That fuse will take care of the issue for you. Once the car is running and the battery is replaced, if the check engine light is still on then you will need to erase the code by disconnecting the battery only after the fuse has been replaced.
Make sure you don't jump start it backwards again
if there are any other issues then check all the fuses.
I will not, I never have
But the issue with the throttle is going to be that 10A fuse
