Question about 2003 Toyota RAV4
Trying to establish the problem This has occured twice in two months.
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.

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

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.

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
