Sorry to say, sounds as if you had cables hooked up backwards, or possibly just had very poor connection between battery and battery cable terminal. If you may have had jumper cables connected backwards, you may have fried some electrical component. Get someone to read the codes which are making the check engine light come on, and perhaps this will give a clue as to what component is blown. Could have damaged anything from a small sensor to the main computer, in which case I would check with salvage yard for a used unit. The main computer is quite pricey.

Look for a lose connection at the crank shaft sensor. This is a signal needed for obtaining tachometer as well as turning on the fuel pump.

Accelerating


You didn't say what year it is but on later models,2004 and up there is a fuse for the throttle control, check in the box under the hood for a fuse marked ETCS, try a new fuse in it's place.

Accelerator got stuck while passing a truck.


When you passed the truck... I guess you couldn't tell if the pedal was stuck since you were focused on braking.

When you brake, your brakes will overcome the acceleration of the car causing it to slow down, but like you describe, the second you let go of your brake, your car accelerates again.

It would sound like either the throttle pedal (gas pedal), the throttle line (connects pedal to throttle assembly) or your throttle assembly (on the engine) may be sticking....

Corolla ve 1999 problem to accelerate check engine on


You may want to try checking the gas filter because my car also had that problem and it was the gasoline filter that had somehow got water in it and was completly damaged. I'm not a complete expert but I'm only basing myself on what my car had that did exactly the same thing as yours.
