You most likely have 1 faulty coil, does your scan tool show freeze frame data? Freeze frame data will set for only one coil, that is the coil that is at fault. You can also do a visual inspection and see if the top of one of the coils is impregnated or split open.

Also try unplugging one coil at a time and see which one will allow the car to stay running.

You replaced coil #5, firewall bank, drivers side?

Was it a new Toyota coil you used to replace, or aftermarket?

It. Was Toyota coil
Expert:  scionking replied 1 year ago.

After replacing coil and clearing check engine light what are the symptoms? Did the vehicle still start then die, did trouble codes come back,and is the freeze frame data on 5 still if the light is back on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The same thing happen,started then turned off
Expert:  scionking replied 1 year ago.

Were the coil codes there before you disconnected aftermarket alarm? Or only showed after disconnecting alarm.

Are there any codes or freeze frame data present now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  scionking replied 1 year ago.

No the codes weren't there till the alarm was disconnected, or no freeze frame data or codes.

Does the factory security indicator flash while attempting to start the car?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No

A little more elaboration is needed other then one word responses, I have asked multiple questions." No" doesn't answer my first question, it was an "either, or " type question.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had the key and computer reprogrammed and replaced the ignition switch and the engine still turns off after it starts
