SOURCE: toyota trouble code P2112
A trouble code of P2112 has to do with the electronic throttle control system (ETCS). Unlike vehicle in the past, your gas pedal does not have a cable that goes to the throttle body to open and close your throttle plate or the thing that makes your idle go up and down to make your vehicle go faster or slower. Your vehicle works with sensors and motors in order to go faster or slower. In other words in simple terms you have a sensor at the gas pedal which is supposed to send a signal to the vehicles computer (ECM). Then the ECM sends a signal to a motor as well as another sensor to tell the throtle to go faster or slower. It's a litle technical but that's a simple way of putting it. Toyota's will go into a "fail safe" mode when it detects a problem. The fail safe mode basically makes the computer set the idle at a certain point so the vehicle can at least be moved slowly and that's all it will do until the problem is corrected. You didn't mention your engine size so I'm not able to really give you anything to check but if you're not real mechanically inclinded you may want to take it to a reputable repair shop. There are MANY tests to do to narrow down the source of the problem but in most cases that I have seen it was some sort of a binding in the throttle body. I know this answer didn't really give you and answer as far as how to fix it but I hope I have been able to help you understand why you have this code and why the vehicle isn't moving hardly which I'm guessing is the case....
