Question about 2006 Toyota Sienna
I jump started my 2005 toyota Sienna and accidentally reversed the jumper cables. All the engine dash lights come on and the gas pedal would no longer work. My OBD II had error code P2118 and P2118 P. I have since replaced the battery and the 10A fuse for the throttle motor and the gas pedal now works but the dash lights icons are still staying on.
I don't have a Sienna but I do have a 2008 Toyota Camry SE. After it being in the garage for many months, 8 months I think, I had to give the battery a jump to finally start it up. Well The jumper cables I used weren't that great. They flickered and seemed to smoke a little. So i removed them and put a better set on to get a charge. I didn't think anything of it. After that charge came through and i was able to accelerate at all... The throttle was to the floor and the car would not even go up .5 RPMs... After several days and talking to the dealer, I was about to call a Tow to have it taken to the dealer. Luckily my friend came by with one of those diagnostic readers and it spit out the P2118 error code. Immediately we looked it up and found this site. Thanks to Fixya.com I was able to determine that it was a freakin measly fuse that blew due to bad jumper cables... Thank god for the Fuse and thank you to Fixya.com that I was able to determine this so quickly!!!

You short circuited a diode in the dash cluster

Testimonial: "That is very helpful! Thank you! I need to find out where that diode is at."
Do this: Take off the positive terminal for the battery, and leave it off for about 1-5 minutes. After atleast 1 minute, reconnect the battery terminal, and the code should be cleared!

I also ran into this issue with my 2012 Toyota Camry. I attempted to get the battery recharged and the guy crossed the cables. I was told I would have to get the computer reset and almost towed it in. Like others, could not increase MPH over 15. Saw this post, decided I could give it a try and it worked!!!

Just want to post here that the details of changing this fuse were exactly what I needed to know to fix the same issue on my 2008 Camry after trying to jump it with a car start box (Stanley Fat Max-didn't work but was connected properly). I can read the codes but didn't know what to do until I stopped here at Fixya and read your posts. So a big THANK YOU to everyone for saving me time and money!

I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla and I had check engine light come on 3 x. The 1st was because I left the gas cap untighten per dealer. The 2nd I took it to advance auto because as I was making a turn my check engine came on and suddenly I could not increase speed almost getting hit by another car. It stated it was the throttle. I took it to the dealer they stated I needed a new battery so I bought one. today the light came on again and I had to sit with the car off to see if the ilde would go down finalyy it did and i was able to drive slowly to my destination
