Question about Toyota Camry Solara
As accelerating, entire car shuts off. It will flutter on and off. Hard to get restarted, sometimes 25 minutes later. NO clicking, nothing!
There are so many things related, I will inspect the ignition switch first then the starter finally the ignition system like the spark plugs.

Remove the lugs at the battery. Clean the posts and the lugs - then reconnect. Your battery won't charge (and the jumpers won't work) largely because of a film on the + post and lug. If you live in a hot summer area, (Arizona) the problem is especially troublesome.

There are many possible reasons while the car will shut down at cold , or when idling or slow.
A good thing to do would be going to the nearest Autozone and doing an error code scanning on the engine. This is free of charge, and will tell you if there is any error codes stored in the car computer.
I will try to summarize possible causes for your problem. I will list only common faults that can cause the car shutting down when you press the pedal after idling.
Air flow problems:
This commonly affect the engine when this is cold.
Check air filter, air intake, MAF (mass airflow) and IAT (intake air temperature). This problems are more noticeable when the engine is cold.
The vacuum system uses recirculated gases in your engine. A vacuum leak or a bad EGR valve can give you troubles, particularly when idling. Vacuum system is tested using an hand tool gauge.
Injection and fuel system:
A malfunctioning fuel pump, a clogged fuel line, or an injector problem may be causing the fault. Pump and lines are tested using the same hand gauge used on vacuum system
Distribution and spark plugs:
If this is the problem, then the engine is shutting down because of misfire. You will get engine warning light on, and the misfire will be reported after doing an error code scanning. When you have distributions problems you can also easily feel that the engine is not running as it should.
An automatic transmission malfunction can cause the engine to shut down when you push the pedal. When this is the problem you realize that the cause is the transmission, and that the wrong gear is on.
Other electronic troubles (ECU , wiring, etc)
The best thing to do is trying to understand in what of the condition above you may be, eventually stop at the nearest Autozone and ask a free OBDII scan, or come back to us with a more detailed description of your problem symptoms. OBDII scan can also be done using an hand tester.

Don,t know why this problem happens....but to get the dash working again remove the dash cluster. There are two white plugs in back of the cluster. In the larger of the two which is dead center on top of the cluster, cut the wire which is in pin #2. It will either be a black/white for the convertibles or a black for all others. It will be next to a white/red wire. Just tape off each end then tape up the harness. No connections are made. Don' t know why this works but it does. Problem seems to happen when remote starts are installed.
