This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

My car over reves when i start it in the also cuts off when i prss brakes when about to stop

sounds like the Idle air control sensor, they sometime can be removed and cleaned, carbon builds up from the fuel burnt from the engine, leaving carbon deposits behind that make the sensor give faulty readings.

How toprogramm car key toyota matrix

  • 1 First you will need to purchase a blank Toyota transponder key. You can do this from the dealership, a locksmith, or an online source such as eBay. Once you have the key, take the blank key and the master key to a locksmith that he or she can duplicate the key. This will be much cheaper than the dealership.
  • 2 Now that you have the newly cut key and the master key, you can program the Toyota transponder key. Sit in the driver's side of the Toyota vehicle. Press and release the brake and gas pedal simultaneously.
  • 3 Insert the master transponder key. Do not turn it. Push and release the gas pedal 5 times within at least 15 seconds of inserting the master key.
  • 4 Press and release the brake pedal 6 times within 20 seconds of completing step 3, then remove the master transponder key.
  • 5 Insert the newly cut transponder key into the ignition, but do not turn. Press the gas pedal once.
  • 6 Wait up to 2 minutes or whenever the security light on the dashboard turns off. Once the light goes off, remove the new transponder key and press the brake pedal once. The new transponder key should now be programmed. Test the key by attempting to start the engine. If the engine does not start, repeat the steps above.

    RAV 4 2004 cruise control not working- checked fuses & brake & clutch switch operation- ok

    my guess, NO SCAN TOOL?

    you can't fix car with out, a (drum roll) SCAN TOOL

    the modern car also cuts cruise for many reasons.

    (death) reason and #2, billion dollar class action suits. (read news?)

    so they now cut the cruise for lots of engine failures and trans.

    no scanning the PCM now, you lose.

    2004 RAV 4 no engine stated.

    if it has TBW (throttle by wire ) that too, cuts CRUISE big time if iffy

    yes,DTCs for TBW or limphome of any kind !!!

    what engine, we cant fix engine issues, with out that.

    only about 10% here post that. so most answer are wrong.

    imagine with body shells missing , see that < what is it,its a drive train. what is yours? engine and trans. what?


    Check engine light on runnning

    Scan tool shows, DTC errors. BINGO.

    scan tool show stuck on limphome?

    Throttle or idle errors of any kind?

    there is no cruise module on ours USA>

    The PCM mimics that in pure software (fact)

    so if the PCM is unhappy, it does in fact cut cruise.

    no scan tool makes all this IMPOSSIBLE on all newer cars !!!!

    see PCM see throttle motor, bingo its cruise TOO.

    Back-fires and cuts off

    check the distributor to make sure that the rotor is pointing at the no. 1 cylinder when that cylinder is at top dead center on the compression stroke. It sounds like your distributor rotor is 180 degrees out of time. The engine will run but will do what yours is doing.

    How to do front brake on 2008 toyota sienna

    No special tools at all. Are you familiar with doing brakes? I wouldnt recommend it for a first timer, its not worth the lives of you and others. Ive also seen people take the wrong bolt out of calipers and spend triple what a brake job cost because they werent experienced and wanted to save a buck. A 17mm and pad spreader or big channel locks is all you need. Use Toyota pads and have the rotors cut..OR... Dont complain when they make noise all the darn time!
