Question about 2004 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

The last two mornings my Toyota Solera's gas pedal did not respond. the car started, I put it in gear but the gas pedal did not respond. Came back 2 to 3 hours later after it was warmer and I was able to start the car. The gas pedal worked or accelerated the enging without any problem. Had a guy do a diagnostic test and said the throttle actuator may be out. What am I $$$$$ am I looking at to fix the problem. The day before, it rained a lot and I drove through high water...could that have affected it? Can it be fixed if a mechanic cleans the throtal actuator?

1. never drive a car thru high water!
yes i have seen the throttle motors fail on the pickups
after fording deep water, cleaning it is a temporary fix at best.
there are other sensors in the throttle body assembly
that also fail when soaked with water.
replacing the assembly is the best fix.

"A Question for TOYOTA ED,,,,", Need info for my 1992 Toyota Camry V6. Problem...


Hello again, I am the resident Toyota expert here at FixYa.

I work for a Toyota dealership, and, with this tip, I hope to shed some light on the alleged Toyota gas pedal issue, and bring some comfort to all of the Toyota owners that read this.

If this tip helps you, please click on the "helped" icon below. Thanks.

The first thing owners need to know is this:
There are TWO different manufactures of the gas pedals that Toyota uses in their cars. They are as follows:

C.T.S. and DENSO

The CTS pedal is the one currently being modified at your local Toyota dealerships. The government (specifically, NHTSA, has inspected and approved the ongoing repairs, take comfort that the government is very aware of the repair, and is in agreement with Toyota that this modification will cure any possibility of the accelerators 'stciking'.

Now, The DENSO pedal is markedly different, and has been found to have NO ISSUES of the alleged sticking condition.

Next, we need to address exactly WHICH cars have the allegedly affected gas pedal installed.

Look at your 17 digit Vehicle Identification number...If it starts with a ' J ', this denotes that you have a Japanese produced vehicle, and ALL Japanese produced vehicles will have the DENSO pedal fitted.
Again, the DENSO pedal has been shown to have no sticking issues.

If your car/truck has a 1, a 2, a 4 or a 5 in the first position of the VIN, this indicates that your vehicle is American production. If you have an American production vehicle, don't panic.

The CTS pedal is installed in about 50% of the American production vehicles. American production ALSO has the DENSO pedal fitted.

You can easily check to see which pedal you have, by looking at the black box that is connected to the moving part of the gas pedal. This is ABOVE the part where you press on with your foot

With a flashlight, illuminate the gas pedal in your car. If you cannot see a shiny silver metal plate on the side of the pedal box, that faces the brake pedal, you have a DENSO pedal. Look closer, and you will see the DENSO word visible on the side of the pedal assembly.

Again, DENSO pedals are not involved in the alleged 'sticky pedal issue'

The CTS pedal has a shiny silver metal plate on the side of the pedal, that faces the brake pedal. If you can see this shiny silver metal plate, you have the CTS pedal, and will need to take it to your Toyota service department, and they will modify the pedal. This procedure will take about 45 minutes.

Vehicles involved in the current CTS pedal modification:
Avalon
Camry
Corolla
Highlander
Tundra
Sequoia
Matrix

Vehicles NOT involved in the CTS pedal modification"
All Japanese production, AND
Yaris
FJ Cruiser
All SCION
Venza
Solara
Sienna

So, to sum up this tip...If you have a CTS pedal, it needs to be modified. As of this writing, I have personally modified over 150 pedals, and have YET to see one that was remotely sticky. Rest assured that the modification that your Toyota service department will eliminate any worries that you may have with regard to your gas pedal.

Hopefully, with this Tip, I have provided you some useful information, and, with this info, you will be able to know which pedal you have, and, if you DO have the CTS pedal, please make an appointment with your local Toyota dealership for the modification. ALl of the Toyota dealers have sufficient quantities of the repair parts on hand.

If you consider this tip helpful, please click on the helpful icon located below. If you want or need any more information, please feel free to post up a question in the question area located on this site, Preface your question with the following: "A Question for TOYOTA ED,,,,",

I will get right back to you.

Gear question


Assuming this is a standard transmission, you always have it in 1st gear. Roll back is controlled by balancing the clutch with the gas pedal.

If an automatic transmission, then the vehicle should hold itself on the incline, unless it is a steep incline, to which you may use the gas pedal to hold the vehicle on the slope, and not the brake. And you would always have the transmission in the main drive gear position.
