Ok. When you can get to the vehicle, open the hood, and then open the fuse panel in the engine compartment. On the lif of the fuse panel there are identifications for the various fuses in the panel. Locate the following fuse, and pull it out: ETCS

This is the fuse for the electronic throttle control system. If this fuse is blown, the car will not accelerate. Sometimes, when replacing the battery, this fuse will blow. Please chack this fuse. Replace it with one of rhe three spares fuses in the panel if the fuse is blown. If the fuse is blown, replacement of the fuse should restore your acceleration.

When changing that fuse the engine light and the Abs light will go off also
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

If the engine light is on, it is because there is no power to the throttle control motor.

The engine light will go off, but it may not go off right away.
