Not enough info yet. Have you tried pulling the codes, that should help give an indication of where the problem is occurring. Take it by an autozone and they can tell you if the ecu has captured any fault codes.

SOURCE: Toyota RAV 4 1.8 A - engine doesn't start after battery exchange

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

SOURCE: I have a toyota rav 4 1996 & the engine

Does it loose power all together as if the engine shuts down or does it go itnto a reduced power state?

Check all of your fluid levels. Keep an eye on all of your other gauges when this happens. Some vehicles will automatically go to a reduced power state to protect itself from damage if overheating etc.

More likely, another simple problem could be a loose connection somewhere. Start by checking your battery terminals, and any connections under the hood that can vibrate loose. Typicallly if a problem just "goes away" suddenly. It is an electrical problem.

SOURCE: my toyota rav 4 engine

From little info given, I suspect it is overdue a service or it has been done by a non Toyota garage, it needs a laptop to tell it that a service has been done, to get you going, switch it off, open door, close it, and then re-start

RAV 4 2004 cruise control not working- checked fuses & brake & clutch switch operation- ok


my guess, NO SCAN TOOL?

you can't fix car with out, a (drum roll) SCAN TOOL

the modern car also cuts cruise for many reasons.

(death) reason and #2, billion dollar class action suits. (read news?)

so they now cut the cruise for lots of engine failures and trans.

no scanning the PCM now, you lose.



2004 RAV 4 no engine stated.

if it has TBW (throttle by wire ) that too, cuts CRUISE big time if iffy

yes,DTCs for TBW or limphome of any kind !!!



what engine, we cant fix engine issues, with out that.

only about 10% here post that. so most answer are wrong.

imagine with body shells missing , see that < what is it,its a drive train. what is yours? engine and trans. what?



causes?

Check engine light on runnning

Scan tool shows, DTC errors. BINGO.

scan tool show stuck on limphome?

Throttle or idle errors of any kind?

there is no cruise module on ours USA>

The PCM mimics that in pure software (fact)

so if the PCM is unhappy, it does in fact cut cruise.



no scan tool makes all this IMPOSSIBLE on all newer cars !!!!



see PCM see throttle motor, bingo its cruise TOO.

My 1999 Toyota Rav, while driving, suddenly became difficult to steer...the peddles also stiffened up. The engine then cut off and the lights came on. Suggestions?


Difficult to steer:Possible power steering belt failure.

Car stalled as I turned into my road. Turned key and it started right up. Has happened to me twice. No check engine light, no codes after hooking up to machine. Worried its gonna happen on major road. Any...


crank sensor fail this can happen some times with no codes. if the crank sensor dont get a reading the engine cuts out but when you turn the key after the stall it will read ok again and start.

I have a 2007 rav 4 the engine light will flash and the rav feels rough the engine or trans won't shift then it stops and works fine


The flashing check engine light means there is a serious problem with the performance of the engine. You need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes next.

One of the dash board lights on my 2007 toyota rav 4 won't cut off, what is wrong with it? It's not the oil light


Sounds like the Orange engine light is on? If yes, the 07 Rav 4 is a great car but suffers greatly with Lambda faults. You need the code read to be sure plus there are 4 lambda's on your car.

If it is a Red triangle light staying on then it could be low brake fluid level.
