When the battery light comes on, it doesnt Usually mean your battery is bad. it tends to be the charging system. take your car to your local auto parts store and have them run a diagnostic on the charging. they tend to do it for free, and it only takes a couple of minutes.
usually this will happen if your alternator is going out, or the voltage regulator. however, there is a possibility that your battery is not holding the charge anymore, but their test will tell you that as well

2003 Toyota Camry 166000 mi., 2.4 liter 4 cylinder. ONLY WHEN CAR IS HOT, idle drops off, engine stalls, must step on accelerator to keep from stalling. Otherwise, idles normally. New spark plugs,...


Some "check engine" light in your dashboard? If YES, need to scanned the PCM (computer) to know exactly what fault code is stored there. If NO, the crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.

Also, keep in mind that on the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 cylinder, a defective Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.

Stalling synthoms... you can have a plugged exhaust, plugged fuel filter, bad airflow meter, problem with the ignition system, incorrect timing belt/chain setting, and failing fuel pump....I'm sure there's more but that should get you thinking.

Keep us updated.

Need help with 2003 toyota camry 4cyl idle


Changing the belt on your car will not make it idle rough, it would not matter if you put it on backwards, upside down, or inside out. The car would just spin the belt off or chew it up. I think that possibly a sensor wire or a vacuum line was broken or knocked off when you were installing the belt. Look for something like that and I think you will find your problem.

1991 Camry with 2.0 L, 4 cylinder. When it is warm


Early 90's had a thing called Idle Stabilizer valve.It should sit on the top of the motor,some models had it sitting on the side of motor.Anyway this part is about 4-5 inches long,abou 1-1.5 in diametar and it has vacuum hoses connection and electrical conection.I'n most cases,the diaphragm could be dirty,thus restrictin internal part to slide back and forward.If you are handy,locate the ISV and remove it.Use some brake parts cleaner( can use up to 1 can) and clean it good.When cleaned spray, just a spritz of of WD40 on each opening and reinstall it.If problem still persist, you will have to purchase a new one that will run you about $200-325 buck.Hope I could help.

Toyota Camry idles then dies


It is NORMAL for the engine computer to have to "Relearn" how to idle the engine after a battery replacement. This should only be temporary and will go away after a few trips.

If it does not go away, or if the Check Engine light is coming on, it will require diagnosis to determine the cause. Nobody can tell you if the problem is related to your recent work until the cause of the problem is located.

Poor idling and stalling on deceleration can be caused by anything from a bad Idle Speed Control motor (ISC)
to low fuel pressure (Clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump) to a bad connection in the A/C clutch sensing circuit. (Kicks the idle up when the A/C compressor is running)

Replaced the battery in 2002 camry now it won't idle


When you replace battery in 2002 Camry ECM tries to reset to factory levels. The reason it will not idle is that the throttle body is dirty and ECM thinks it should be new!! Clean throttle body with cleaner that is safe for tbs and this will fix your idle problem.

DISCHARGE WARNING LIGHT ON


It might leave you stranded. Because without the alternator. which I think is your problem your battery will run down in a very short time. Even if you had a new battery.Check the belt first as Toyota Ed suggested. If it's good, and not broken. Replace the alternator and if you have to, the battery also. One could affect the other.
