    Mine is a 2003 camry. I used to replace my battery and got the same problem. I sent my car to the dealer who suggested that it would clean up the throttle valve and upload the data into my car's computer. Is this true?

You have a very common problem. You have lost the "base idle" paramater, by changing the battery. What you need to do is drive the car thru several "drive cylces". Drive it in stop & go traffic, stop & let it idle for 2 minutes...then get an the expressway, engage passing gear several times. Pull off somewhere safe, let it idle, and duplicate the cycle again. This will teach the ECU the base idle, and you problem will vanish. We do this every day, for the same issue. Common problem, easy fix.

New starter wont start just click


change battery cables. get rid of those small gauge wires and put wire in that will draw amps. I had one car that would kill battery every year and found out the cables were to light to keep it working properly.. both the positive to the starter and the ground cable are way to small for the car. clicking means it isn't getting enough power to the starter to spin the motor !

Die battery


sounds like you just need a new battery... if the car starts when you're charging, the starter is most likely just using the power from the charger (or the charging battery). And if it continues to run once you've started it, then the alternator is fine.

It's possible that when you installed the new lamp socket that you created a short in the battery, or that the battery is just old and needs replacing... but replacing it is definitely where i would start.
