The Engine management light comes on for Faults and Service intervals.
I presume from your brief description the vehicle hasn't changed in performance? if this is so then it looks like time for a service.
If however there is a difference or you are experiencing problems a Visit to a competant engineer is important particulary one who knows about OBD fault codes and resetting.
Good Luck!
I hope this helps,

Start by checking the ETCS fuse in the engine room fuse box. If it's good, you may have an open circuit between the fuse box and ECM.

P2118 engine code, and the vehicle would not accelerate at all. what should I do? Kindly help, is a 03 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Sport Utility.

P2118 Toyota - Throttle Actuator Control Motor Current Range/Performance

Possible causes:
- Faulty Throttle Actuator Control Actuator
- Electronic Throttle Control System (ETCS) harness is open or shorted
- Electronic Throttle Control System (ETCS) circuit poor electrical connection

When is the code detected?
The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the battery supply voltage applied to the electronic throttle actuator. When the power supply voltage drops below the threshold, the ECM concludes that the power supply circuit has an open circuit. A DTC is set and the MIL is turned on.

Possible symptoms:
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P2118 Toyota Description: The Electronic Throttle Control System (ETCS) has a dedicated power supply circuit. The voltage (+BM) is monitored and when the voltage is low (less than 4 V), the Engine Control Module (ECM) concludes that the ETCS has a fault and current to the throttle actuator is cut. When the voltage becomes unstable, the ETCS itself becomes unstable. For this reason, when the voltage is low, the current to the actuator is cut. If repairs are made and the system has returned to normal, turn the ignition switch OFF. The ECM then allows current to flow to the actuator and actuator can be restarted.

My toyota 4runner. 1997, choke stopped working ( its a auto, 3.4 petrol SR5 V6)

There is no choke on these vehicles any more. Choke for lack of a better word is regulated by the uses references from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor and Intake Air Temp. (IAT) sensor to tell the computer how much air and fuel to mix at start up. At a cold start, the mix is more fuel....less air. Do you have a hard time starting your vehicle in the morning? If you have and "engine" light on in your car?

Engine does not accelerate as automatic transmission is engaged

Sounds like you have a timing belt issue, it may be off one tooth. This would be expected by the way you describe your symptoms
