You changed battery without putting a 12v aux supply and i think you will now find the factory immobiliser has cut in

    Yes, seems this is my problem too. In fact, I'm convinced it is the immobilizer!! Now how do I fix it?!?

Rav 4 turbo diesel 1 2 3 cylinders are all working when you take off connector when running no 4 nothing happens

There is a fault with no 4 cylinder. Could be: Faulty new injector, faulty ECM not firing injector, low compression on that cylinder. I'm assuming its a newer common rail model - I suggest getting the injector swapped to another cylinder and see if the problem moves. IE: swap no 2 and 4 injectors - if the problem moves to no 2 then the injector will need to be replaced.

99 Rav 4 wont turn over.

Sounds like your timing belt may have broken. It's really a job for a proper mechanic if so.

The crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor tell the ECM what to do and when the injectors/spark to occur.

Engine runs wild with white smoke

If its a 4JX engine then its injectors and seals at fault dont run it any more cos it may blow up - like rods through the side !
The diesel is going straight into the engine without being injected and as the fuel lift pump is mechanical it wont stop on the key .
Should be under isuzu warranty though they are doin that repair on 1998 Troopers over here for free .
