Thanks for your concern guy's. We did manage to fix the problem....It took us about four days of laborious work....We had to remove the harness covers and work our way backwards and forward, from the management computer, to and from the relevant 'sender unit' coolant temp, air temp, manifold pressure, lumda and oxogen sensor and from the controlled units, ie, ignition system, injection system, cooling fan set up and so on. We managed to identify the connections by following the identification labels printed onto the circuit boards.
We think that Toyota could make life a lot easier, if they used a standard wire colour coding and did not change that colour inside the loom....It is not un-common to see, as an example, a red with white tracer at one end and that may be joined to a blue with red tracer at the other end....If the loom cover is not removed and the cable inspected, you could not guess from what goes in, what will be coming out.
Hope this will be of help to someone somewhere.

may sound like a dumb question but you didnt by chance hook up the battery or jumpstart the car with polarity reversed by accident at some point during this process? i would check all the underhood main fuses and interior fuses as well, what is the condition of the battery post clamps? if they are badly corroded be sure to clean them very well and wash them with a baking soda and water solution im thinking one of the cables or smaller wires that hook up at the battery is broken or possibly some freak accident happend and the computers need to be flashed at a dealer. either way i wish you luck please rate -jeff

I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:
The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.
There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.

I can get you a diagram on monday but it goes from the alternator to the power steering pump then around the tensioner pulley then around the crank pulley then to the a/c compressor then pull on the tensioner to give you some slack and slip it on the waterpump.I hope that helps.Let me know if you still need the diagram

Keep gently trying while moving the steering wheel and jiggling the shifter. Is the car actually in park. If no luck then to the shop it must go. If you get it out do not put that key back in....get a new one at the dealer made from the vin.
