Dear An,
You have two different systems, but since you car is "newer", they are made to try to help each other if there is a problem.
Let's address the "overheat" problem first, then go to the A/C.
A good mechanic can check the electric engine-cooling-fan for function by "hot-wiring " it.
That fan is actuated by an engine temperature sensor that screws into the engine block.
These sensors can fail, as can the next item in the circuit, which is a relay, usually found in the black plastic box under the hood.
One of those two items should be the cause of the overheat, the way you have described it.
Sensors cost roughly $20 at a car parts store, as do these relays.
The reason the A/C shuts off is likely to prevent overheating at a stop light,
God bless your efforts.

I found this picture in database, did you look in glove box? I have a tech manual for tpms, for Toyota it just says lower dash for reset switch. For the picture, there is no orientation, you can't really tell anything. The info does say all Toyota with tpms has reset button. Sorry, I'm not sure where it is located or if there is one? I can only go by what the database says.

Not a lot of room in there, especially on the battery side, but at the back of the headlight there is a connector that turns anticlockwise a one eighth turn. Pull the connector out and the bulb is in it. The bulb has three prongs and pulls out. I can recommend any of the Sylvania Silver Star type bulbs.

Change both of them. I have them in my Lexus ES330 (Camry). When you insert the bulb, hold the glass with a tissue as oil on your hands damages the glass because of the heat. Insert the bulb, insert the connector, turn 1/8 clockwise.

If car will start with remote but not with key. The problem could be a bad ignition module in steering column. The reason I think this is when you use remote the module is bypassed but everything else comes into play. But when you try to start it with the key the module is not connect

Clean the throttle body bore and plate of any carbon deposits. Also, clean and check the IAC idle air control circuit . If it has electronic controlled throttle body it will not have the IAC. Carbon deposits around the throttle body bore and plate (butterfly) can restrict airflow at idle causing the low uneven idle.

Hello Jean:
Considering the $ that a new motor would cost, a second opinion would be a good idea. The ticking sound is often more associated with valves, lifters, and camshaft, compared to knocking which is more crankshaft and connecting rods. If you're mechanically inclined you could use a mechanics stethescope to listen to the running engine to determine the source of the sound.
It's definitely not a good idea to run it, especially at high rpm, until you find the problem.
