Customer Question

2006 Scion tC stopped responding on the highway. After a few minutes on the shoulder it started up and drove normally. A day later it died again and would not run. It turned over and started up, but would immedately turn off. Replaced crankshaft sensor and the vehicle starts up, warms up and idles (battery was disconnected for hours during replacement and the computer took a while to readjust) but after 60 to 90 seconds of warming up the accelertor becomes completely unresponsive as if the TPS is not functioning at all.
Note: after crankshaft sensor when just started (cold) the accelerator works normally. As soon as it starts to warm up the unresponsive TPS problem starts to manifest.
