2003 Toyota 4runner dies/won't start

2003 Toyota 4WD 4runner Limited: Dies when idle (at a stop) and won't start - won't even turn or crank. Battery is new and toyota shop says they cannot detect problem. Have to turn key (no crank - like a dead battery) several times until it miraculously starts. All electrical stays on and operates - power windows, lights, radio - so it is not a dead battery.
Shop has recomended replacing body CPU, but not gaurantee it is the problem!

    i have a 2005 toyota 4runner with the exact same problem. two shops have had the car and it seems like they are shooting in the dark for an answer. my questions is, would a starter problem cause the idling out? are they two different problems or one?

A/T oil temp light comes on accompanied with battery ligh. The engine wouldn't start. Toyota 2010 4Runner limited edition


which engine?
2.7 L 2TR-FE I4 (157 hp, 2WD, 2010 only)
4.0 L 1GR-FE V6 (270 hp)
that means the engine stalled, or was real close to stall
800 rpm is lowest on most modern cars.
so ..wow you like to guess, with $100 bills>?
wow.
NOOBS 101 (posted 100s of times)
  1. get in car, turn on head lights , do they work, (yes/no)
  2. yes, turn key, does all those silly warning lights glow (y/n)
  3. does CEL glow, check engine light, if not fuses are BLOWN if above 1,2. are ok.
  4. Is the IMMOBLISER light happy, not telling you its IMMOBILZED? per oper. guide? if yes stop here)
  5. turn the key to start (all this is in oper.guide) does engine starter crank the engine over fast? (y/n)
  6. yes, then its a cranks no start issue, if no,its starter key issues.
  7. Ok it cranks, do you have spark to all cylinders of unstated engine. seen above?
  8. if yes, then try test fuel, if not fix bad spark. scan PCM, see why the scan tool can tell you why it wont start, by cranking any engine, with tool connected, 1996 to now. do so now.
  9. and more, ask for more if you can get to here.
