Question about 2002 Toyota Sequoia
Ok, replaced battery about 2 months ago. Now check engine light comes on then shuts off and car suddenly stalls. I turned car back on and started fine. Put in drive and care stalled again and battery light came on, and check engine light. I could never get car to move. This happened over and over, but the car starts just fine in park. What the hell is going on?
Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.
Hope this helps,
